Welcome Back!

Today starts a new chapter in Electric Mohawk’s history. My name is Rob, and I was a contributor when Brett was running the site. I wrote a few posts here and there, but due to schedules and availability, the site was put on standby. I am here to bring it back. What does that mean […]

Back Alley Riot EP: My Girlfriend’s A Serial Killer

Back Alley Riot is back with their newest EP My Girlfriend’s A Serial Killer. In a previous post, I introduced you to their blue collar, gritty, rockabilly-esque style, and this latest offering is more of the same. This EP is like driving on a curvy road at 90mph —  fast-paced and on the edge of control, […]

First Listen: Reel Big Fish – Candy Coated Fury

The summer was 1997. I was 17 and worked at Target as cashier. It was the summer of ska. A magical summer where I fell in love with this song called “Sell Out” by this band I’d never heard of called Reel Big Fish. I went to the music section and picked up Turn The Radio […]

First Listen: Green Day – Oh Love

Back in April I wrote that Green Day was releasing an album trilogy ¡UNO! ¡DOS! ¡TRE! later this year. We got a taste of that offering with the first single “Oh Love.” I must say, I am not impressed. Maybe because I wasn’t a huge fan of 21st Century Breakdown. Maybe because it seems like Green Day […]

First Listen: Back Alley Riot

I’m constantly surprised by the music scene in Milwaukee. With Summerfest, the Rave/Eagles Ballroom, and Turner Hall/Pabst/Riverside among others, I feel we Milwaukeeans are spoiled when it comes to music.  But more importantly, we are spoiled because we get a steady stream of up-and-coming indie, punk, ska and more. All over the city, any given […]

Straight No Chaser Christmas

Handpicked: Straight No Chaser- The 12 Days of Christmas

Happy Holidays! If you are like me, you get annoyed with Christmas showing up before Halloween. But, after Thanksgiving, I welcome a chill in the air, the lights and the old familiar songs of the season. This one just so happens to be my new favorite. Straight No Chaser is an all male a cappella group […]

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony - Home

Handpicked: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony – “Home”

I know we don’t post a lot of rap on Electric Mohawk, but there is something about “Home” that just fits. This Bone Thugs N Harmony song was released on Thug World Order  in 2002. I am really starting to get into mashups, and this one seems to pre-date the growing movement. I’ve always been a […]
