Milo Performs Live for WPR

Tom Fullmer1 Comment

Milo stopped by the Wisconsin Public Radio studios in Madison, WI as part of their new Set List live performance series. "Lavender Chunk" is a track off Plain Speaking, which was released in May under his Scallops Hotel moniker. In contrast to the low-key, stoic delivery we've grown accustomed to on Milo projects, this live rendition has a crucial, pleading quality to it. The acute lyricism and syncopated cadences are still here, but his voice is urgent and exasperated, like the words have soured in his mouth before leaving:

Brothers like us don't live too long / That's why we have to write so many rap songs
