Brett Newski hopes you won't let the bastards get you down.

Brett Newski hails from the desolate north lands of Milwaukee, and how latest album Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down was titled quite a while ago but feels incredibly timely, huh?*

He sounds kinda like Peter Murphy had he latched onto power-pop before turning glam goth.

I won't go into any greater detail, but since I'm sure we could all use any welcome distraction from the torrent of ever-changing news I reckoned we could all use a slice of good music to help us along. And if you dig this taste, make sure to check out the full album when it's released on April 3!

And, clearly, since he lives so close to Chicago I'm hoping to get a chance top catch him live ... sometime in the future.

UPDATE: Newski is generously donating all pre-order proceeds to Doctors Without Borders if you place your order through March 19!

*Totally joking. Milwaukee is a lovely town and a terrific weekend getaway shoaled you be within a few hours drive. Just maybe not right now.
