VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Aidan Keyes (Crone)
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks to singer-songwriter Aidan Keyes, who is frontman of slowcore-shoegaze band Haunter, makes music under his own name as well as under Crone, and runs the label Sickle Moon Recordings. Haunter’s latest record “Halloween III”, Keyes’ latest record “Dream House Burning Down Whole Family Was Inside”, and Crone’s latest record “Fires on A Distant Moon” all came out in 2020. They discussed Haunter’s origins and recent music, the gray cloudy aesthetic, Aidan’s recent solo records, missing sweaty basement shows, and his Sickle Moon efforts.
