About Austin KruegerAustin works as a cost analyst for TDS Telecom in the Government and Regulatory Affairs team. He has a marketing degree from UW-Whitewater and has worked in various departments including marketing, sales and network services since joining TDS in 2004. He is a huge sports fan – if he’s not at work, odds are you can find him at Miller Park, Lambeau Field, Camp Randall or the Kohl Center watching the game. In his spare time, he’s chairman of a local non-profit, avid music fan, rec sports MVP and an early adopter when it comes to most new technologies.
Today’s artist is from the ‘80s—but there isn’t anything typical about the music or the act. He utilized music tech in new ways and created a sound that is now probably the most sampled in modern rap history. Take a listen today and P-Funk up your Tuesday!
Popular tracks like “Sledgehammer” make you immediately know it’s from the U.S. ‘80s culture, but the rest of the record seems to span all time and existence. Unanimously it transformed Gabriel into an iconic artist instead of a cult hero and has been named one of the top 500 albums of all time. It's well worth a listen!
If a band doesn’t fit into the standard genre conventions doesn’t mean they should be overlooked for great tunes. In fact, bands with an eclectic sound are some of the best out there. Today’s featured act is, well, out there—but the few tracks stack up against almost anyone.
Deep Purple may not be one of the biggest names off the top of your head, but they do have likely the most-recognized guitar riff of all time. In fact, the song featuring that bit helped this album stay on the U.S. top charts for more than two years! No matter what we get out of this, I know, I know we’ll never forget so it's worth it to take a listen today.
Reputation was a strong departure from her previous releases—but it didn't deter her success. She earned praise for her EDM sound and grown-up lyrics and has sold more than five million copies of this one to date. Will she ever stop? Who knows, but her sixth studio album is worth a listen.
Gen Z kids know Zeppelin and listen to them as much as the generations before. For that reason alone, throw this one on today—the band's final studio album that split the critics, but has sold just as well as their acclaimed debut album. Maybe you’ll be divided too, but you won't know until you listen!
It’s certainly not uncommon for a pop music star to get their start in another medium. Today’s featured act falls into that category. She did a little acting as a kid and now finds herself blowing up the pop music scene in a way few have seen before.
This album has been named a top 500 albums of all time (twice), and bands like Motorhead and Phish have covered tracks off this record dozens (and dozens) of times. And really, what’s the longest anyone in the U.S. really goes without hearing “La Grange”? Maybe a week or two? This album is massive and worthy, in honor of Dusty Hill, a listen.
Ben Rector's folk pop lyrics make you sit down and contemplate what you just heard and relate it to your own life. Some tracks on this album are a bit more playful and upbeat, but overall it still gives you vibes of intimate, personal songwriting that makes the genre so special. Take a listen today.
While these guys are absolute legends in the Minneapolis area, they made their mark on music history and are well worth a listen. Known for sold-out shows and monstrous performances, they have a legacy on par with almost anyone in the biz.
