Earworm Of The Week: Farewell Milwaukee
With a tender mix of melancholy and nostalgia, Farewell Milwaukee creates swoon-worthy country tunes. The Minneapolis-based band released their sophomore effort, When It Sinks In, in 2011 and has since exploded on the local scene. They sold out their recent show with Romantica at the Cedar Cultural Center, were featured on Minnesota Original, and have landed tracks on the MN Music For Kids compilation and Cities '97 Sampler Volume 23. Frontman Ben Lubeck was also a finalist in NPR’s 2010 Mountain Stage New Song contest. This song, You're The Cure, is a light-hearted, toe-tapping jam, filmed by Nathaniel Schmidt in somebody's living room.
