Def Jam rappers aren’t the only ones subject to development hell. Milwaukee’s saturnine indie-rockers Decibully took years to craft a follow-up to 2005’s Sing Out America, only to learn their one-time label, Polyvinyl, has no interested in releasing it (a slap in the face, considering how the label still makes time for all the side projects that Tim and Mike Kinsella crap out). It could be quite a while until the band finds a distributor for their new World Travels Fast, a sonically amorphous collection of trans-global Americana, but in the meantime, the band is streaming the record online, testifying however unintentionally to the album’s themes of instant communication.


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?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
