Keith Pulvermacher: Midwestern

Butler native Keith Pulvermacher sings pop-structured, radio-catchy songs with the stark accompaniment and wistful sentimentality of folk. If one counts his vocal resemblance to current country radio hit-maker Lee Brice, Pulvermacher could count as a triple-genre hybrid. It doesn’t take a very attentive listen to determine that most of Midwestern could pass for a collection of demos for commercial good guys such as Brice. Pulvermacher’s autobiographical earnestness, mostly acoustic guitar backdrop and lack of narrative tension in most songs, makes for listening that’s a touch too easy. Boding well for his future, he begins and ends his 14-track collection with his most melodically and lyrically incisive material. Pulvermacher could do well to beef up his backing. Or realize what a gift his songs may be to Nashville.

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?
