In the spring of ‘91, somewhere in the heartland, perhaps on a street like yours, Jeremy (bass), Brett (guitars/vocals) and Christian (drums) formed the trio Milk.
In 1992 the group released two singles on Spanish Fly Records, which they parlayed into a US tour. Their debut full length, Ear, was released by Spanish Fly Records in 1993.
Released in 1994, Milk’s, second full length, Succeeding/Receding is mildly forceful indie-rock, and while, to my ears, occasionally strays into Math-rock territory, is marked by
off-center guitar constructions… bass humming hookily beneath and a slightly spacy approach highlighting some of the more melodic tracks.
With Succeeding/Receding receiving critical acclaim from both the Indie music press and college radio Milk would spend 1995 touring the US in support of it, while also writing material for their third album, 1996’s So Many Dynamos.
