Even as scads of music blogs start up every day, Illinois-based Daytrotter.com stands out as a true original. Founded more than four years ago by Sean Moeller, a former music and sports newspaper reporter, Daytrotter regularly posts exclusive live-in-the-studio sessions recorded by indie rock artists like Death Cab For Cutie, Spoon, Of Montreal, and Grizzly Bear, who swing by the site’s studio in nearby Rock Island, Ill. when they have an afternoon to kill between Midwest tour stops.
Milwaukee’s Juniper Tar is the latest local band to step up to the Daytrotter plate, performing “Residents,” “After The Tremors,” “She’s Inside Glass,” and a Townes Van Zandt cover, “Rex’s Blues.” A new Juniper Tar album, Since Before, is expected this year (and includes “After The Tremors”), and promises to take the group’s moody, yearning Midwest Americana in thrilling new directions.
