Milwaukee Music Roundup: Rexxx, Juiceboxxx, Operations, Long Line Riders

Mar 5, 2020

Matt Wild is one of the co-founders of Milwaukee Record, which describes itself as an online source for music, culture, and gentle sarcasm. Among the many cultural things Milwaukee Record keeps track of is a nearly exhaustive list of new music from local musicians.

Here's a selection of Matt's Milwaukee Music Roundup for February 2020:

Rexxx
"Can't Help It"

"They're a party band, and it's a very positive, party vibe... It's not like the party bands of old, you know, your Mötley Crüe or Poison, and that - which, especially in the light of today seem a little icky. [Rexxx is] not that. It's a very wholesome, positive party vibe."

Juiceboxxx
"In The Basement"

"It's about grappling with this legacy, his history of playing these lousy basement shows, and why does he still do it? But, he's going too keep doing it - it's all he knows."

Operations
"Perfect Day"

"I just love this kind of music, it's a very shoegazey, kind of quiet, very hushed... It's just one of those records you want to put on from front to back."

Long Line Riders
”Pick Me Up On Your Way Down

”This song, popularized by Charlie Walker, written by Harlan Howard, back in the day… [this is] a live performance. I think the Long Line Riders do a rootin’ tootin’ job.”
