Telemetry

The earnest and skittish Milwaukee band Sharking Hour smoothes out some of its idiosyncrasies on its sophomore album, Telemetry. Instead of the eclectic alt-indie pastiche of Sharking Hour’s previous CD, North of Nippon, this time they lessen the piano, pile on more guitar and approximate early Weezer as a mildly insurgent country band. What keeps the music compelling, if not always hooky, is singer Pete Kostrivas' vocal quaver and sincerity. Sharking Hour might not be making a great upward leap, but their lateral move is interesting enough to warrant keeping an ear out for them in the future.


Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
