Soul Low
Last night's Radio Milwaukee Music Awards nearly doubled as a showcase for the Milwaukee label Gloss Records, with performances from four of its acts—NO/NO, Soul Low, D'Amato and GGOOLLDD—in addition to a fiery, confrontational set from Milwaukee rapper laureate Milo. The label also claimed its share of awards, too: Soul Low took home Album of the Year honors for their jittery masterpiece Nosebleeds, GGOOLLDD claimed a hard-earned Band of the Year trophy and Lorde Fredd33 got the plaque for Best Album Artwork ("They even spelled my name right," the rapper marveled.)

Other honors went to ascendant R&B singer Lex Allen and producers Chris Siegel and Strehlow, whose summer jam "This is How" has proven itself a fine fall and winter jam, too. The station also honored promoter Jim Linneman, owner of the indispensable Linneman's Riverwest Inn, with its Music Ambassador of the Year award, while a panel of critics gave a nod to the latest album from Milo's cerebral Scallops Hotel side project, Too Much Of Life is Mood.
