Cream City Sessions – Gesu Cathedral Released

Cream City Sessions ~ Gesu Cathedral album cover

A few months ago, The Vitrolum Republic got the opportunity to perform at one of Milwaukee’s oldest landmarks, the Church of the Gesu on the campus of Marquette University. We took the opportunity to create not only a truly unique performance for a live audience, but an album that captures what our live shows are like in a way that our fans can enjoy and share.

Named “Cream City Sessions ~ Gesu Cathedral,” this release is the first in what we hope to be an ongoing series of performances that reflect our band’s home town and the numerous incredible spaces it has to offer for performing music.

The artwork for this album was chosen from some existing work by Milwaukee artist, Sue Lawton, who has previously both created original work for the Vitrolum Republic and incorporated the band in her book, The Circus and the Cyclone. This piece is titled, “Siren Song” and is from her surrealist opera. Find out more about Sue and her work at her website.

You can download this album for free on Bandcamp and view the entire performance on YouTube.

This album was also recently reviewed by our friends at the GeekDad blog at wired.com, so please go check that out.

Thank you, Milwaukee, for your incredible support and we look forward to bringing our unique sound to even more people in the year to come.
