At first glance, I couldn't believe a band as "young" as Farewell Milwaukee had enough miles behind them to sound so much like a band from the late '60s. For an instant, I heard The Byrds, then I thought I heard Neil Young, The Band and The Allman Brothers. But the greatest part about Farewell Milwaukee's sound is that it's original.

Barely in their 30s, the band members exude the confidence and arranging chops of an ensemble that's been on the road for decades. They have a real understanding of how to play with — rather than on top of — one another.

Farewell Milwaukee released their third album, Can't Please You, Can't Please Me, this past September. They stopped in the Radio Heartland studios to chat and to play a few tunes.

Songs performed:

"Come Naturally"
"The Way You Move"
"You Are The Thunder"
