Artist Interviews Magic Milk

Chicago's favorite party band put their tallboys down for a few minutes to hang out with CHIRP's Cher Vincent. Magic Milk is Kenny Alden, Nick Spiese, and Maggie Laleman, but any Chicagoan who likes to get down to bouncy garage rock can be an honorary member of the band. They explained their DIY approach to music, guerilla recording sessions, and having fun with Goons.
