Public Disco Porch. Music songs.

Sleepy Gaucho's discerning brand of Panamerican influenced folk music floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of it’s own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable. The seven track debut record “Another Time”, while initially recorded in Madison, WI, was eventually finished after the songwriter happened to find himself drifting around an East London neighborhood for a few months. The tunes have been brought to life by trusted musicians in the Midwest scene, helping the music and its stories make it to the road. 2019 brings the release of "Another Time" on Vinyl via Milwaukee's Hear Here Records. 12" Albums available this upcoming spring.

Pretty Beggar is a high-energy, lyric-centric, indie pop-rock blend of big hooks and meaningful storytelling that has a midwest soul and a California polish. Songwriter/frontman Michael Castle’s solo show implements beatboxing and instrument layering to make 1 man sound like 4 while highlighting his hip-hop influence through his focused and rhythmic arrangements of Pretty Beggar songs.
