I’m currently working on producing our next Sounds of the Re:Union podcast, about the Milwaukee Ukulele Club. Yes, that’s right – a ukulele club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin… not a tropical island in the Pacific.

Pat Graham was kind enough to allow the Sounds of the Re:Union team to use a couple of his photographs for our Indie Rock podcast. He has photographed music’s most formative independent artists for more than two decades and published his pictures in a collection titled Silent Pictures. From Fugazi and Bikini Kill to Modest Mouse and The Shins, Pat Graham has shot countless celebrated bands from their days at tiny hole-in-the-wall clubs to playing for thousands at popular festivals. There’s a certain intimacy to his photos that make you feel like you may just be getting something more out of the show than even someone in attendance. (more…)
We had the pleasure of interviewing some of Indie Rock’s biggest names including Ben Gibbard (Death Cab and Postal Service), Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh), Chris Hrasky (Explosions in the Sky), Orenda Fink (Azure Ray) and Pat McGuire (Editor-in-Chief of FILTER Magazine) about the definition, beginnings and humorous stereotypes of the genre. You can visit our Sounds page to view the podcast or go to our Vimeo page for a full-size, HD version. Thank you to everyone involved!
Since 1985, Atlanta band Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ has best been known for southern-fueled twang rock, but frontman Kevn Kinney grew up in Milwaukee – a city that continues to be his muse. In this Sounds feature producer Katie Ball talks with Kevn about the struggles he’s seen in his home town and the inspiring changes to come.
