"Lame Sunset," from Portland noise-pop trio the We Shared Milk's album of the same name, recalls the glory days of '90s alternative, as well as some of the best guitar rock of the past three decades. In other words, this is good stuff. I have to admit their name kept me at a distance for some time, but I was immediately sold after seeing footage of the band's Banana Stand performance. Vocalist/guitarist Boone Howard plays it loosey-goosey, but has an ear for intricate and melodious guitar lines. These guys can do it tight and punchy, or let fly a woozy and noisy space-jam. The We Shared Milk's fuck-all 'tude puts the perfect touch on some damn fine rock tunes. Tonight they celebrate the proper re-release of 2013's Lame Sunset, which initially came out perhaps too quickly on the heels of their ambitious 2012 album History of Voyager and Legend Tripping to earn the attention it deserved.
