in-studio + interview: Mike Krol

Tune into WMSE to hear a live set from Los Angeles x Wauwatosa, Merge Records musician, Mike Krol, who is busy touring on his latest record, Power Chords.

Pitchfork says this of the album – “Pledging allegiance to fuzz, this power-pop barrage squares off against heartache, disappointment, and sleepless nights—and survives.

“At 33 minutes, Power Chords is about twice as long as the typical Mike Krol record, but it’s also his tightest and most frenzied work yet. Where past releases wandered into whimsical psychedelic balladry and meditative piano experiments, Power Chords commits to the woofer-blowing promise of its title with evangelical zeal.”
