Farewell Milwaukee / Bio

On May 17th, Minneapolis based Farewell Milwaukee released their sophomore album, When It Sinks In. Formed in 2008, Farewell Milwaukee has charted a course down familiar paths blazed by folks like Jackson Browne, Ryan Adams and the Jayhawks; all focused on the power of honest, confessional songwriting with no pretense or ulterior motives.

Recorded in Nashville with producer/engineer Brad Bivens (Kings of Leon, Cold War Kids, Norah Jones), the album finds Farewell Milwaukee transitioning from the heavier subject material of their first album Autumn Rest Easy to a joyful exploration of love in all its forms. Sonically, When It Sinks In is full of rich acoustic work with slow burners, like the title track as well as rough-and-tumble rockers, such as “Ain’t No Rules”. The opener “The Wallpaper’s Gonna Swallow You Whole” is a rousing start fueled by keys and the group’s strong use of four vocalists. The heart of the album is reached on the closing track, “Lovable/Kind” providing the perfect synopsis of the unabashed hope you’ll find throughout When It Sinks In.
