New Music Video: "Baby" - Needle Points

This morning - we wanted to get your week started off right with Needle Points's new video for "Baby," off the band's latest release Feel Young. Model/fan Federica Hermann makes us all want her to be our baby in the vintage-y footage. It has us longing for those carefree, summer nights where you ain't got shit to do but hang, drink beers and wild out to your favorite tunes. We're definitely ready to leave this winter behind already!

New Music Video: "The Dirge" - Eric Slick

You find a seriously depressed Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) in his new music video for the single, "Dirge," which also stars Natalie Prass. It recently premiered over at Clash, where he had a chance to share a bit of insight into the bleak, black & white world (below).

"The post election trauma has left a lot of people feeling hopelessly glued to their social media. The video for 'The Dirge' is an absurdist look into a dystopian living space where Natalie and I try to make the best of our existence while painting our nails, exercising, and singing karaoke on a yoga ball. The computer is watching us and we are watching the computer, ad infinitum."

Slick's debut solo album is due out on April 21 via Egghunt Records. He'll be performing tomorrow afternoon at Kebabalicious, as part of the Boomfantasy Showcase of Dreams 2017, and you can welcome him home from the road on Wednesday, March 29 at World Cafe Live, opening for singer-songwriter Tift Merritt.





The Must-See Nashville Artists List for SXSW

As we celebrate SXSW this week, we've put together a curated list of Nashville's best emerging artists attending the festivities. We even highlighted a couple of our favorites (Faux Ferocious and Idle Bloom) for your enjoyment. 

Faux Ferocious is a band that tastefully toes the line between experimental noise rock and simple, fuzzy garage rock tunes. Their punk rock, chaotic energy is remiscent of indie rock classics like The Pixies or Wavves, but their expert musicianship is evident throughout their work. They know how to play expertly but keep it loose enough to make the songs feel uniquely human. Their latest album, Cloning the Rubicon is a garage turned alien spaceship. Atmospheric synth pads hold up bits and pieces of feedback, incomprehensibly delayed background vocals fragments and what sound like UFO landing noises. If you're into simple fuzz rock tunes drenched in pure chaos, Faux Ferocious is the band you don't want to miss at SXSW.


Idle Bloom is an outfit that refuses to stick with a single genre. They mash psych rock, fuzzy garage rock, and grunge together to create a unique sonic blend that's becoming increasingly rare in a music world that splits itself into specific sonic niches. Heavy, distorted guitars create a sound wall, occasionally crescendoing in reverb-soaked euphoria. The rhythm section is tight and nuanced, knowing exactly how when and how to let loose. The songs are varied and dynamic, but feel emotionally cohesive. The band's latest record, Little Deaths is like a psychedelic take on garage rock with a catalogue varied enough to attract music fans of all stripes.

New Pilkington Cassingle Available for Streaming & Purchase

Soft Flesh, the new cassingle from Pilkington, is now available via Black Rd Records. Its title track splices chiptune with a rolling, surf guitar licks, gliding along in vibrant, cruising fashion, while the B-side, “Elixir,” gathers momentum from backend rhythms and rays of synth, as the lyrics depict an isolated tale of searching for answers. The quartet is slated to appear at Boot & Saddle on Wednesday, March 29 with Spelling Reform and Middle Kids.
