Motel Breakfast came to form playing dive bars and basements in the winter of 2016. With members split between Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, they’ve built their name as members of all three Midwest scenes. After two years of live shows in the Midwest, the band hit the studio in the summer of 2019 to record to tape at Treehouse Records in Chicago. Produced by Andy Goitia (Sleepy Gaucho), the self-titled debut album captures the high energy and chemistry of the band’s live show. The album is set to be released everywhere on February 7, 2020.
Sleepy Gaucho’s discerning brand of Panamerican influenced folk music floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of it’s own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable. The seven track debut record “Another Time”, while initially recorded in Madison, WI, was eventually finished after the songwriter happened to find himself drifting around an East London neighborhood for a few months. Spring of 2019 brought the release of “Another Time” on vinyl via Hear Here Records, with the songs being brought to life by trusted musicians in the Midwest scene. Since returning to his hometown of Milwaukee, he began the creative process for his next project. Straying away from his usual approach, he recruited the likes of veterans such as Patrick Sansone of Wilco and fellow talent ranging from local friends and Nashville session musicians for his upcoming sophomore album, “Morning Light”.
