Lonas releases debut EP "Youth", releases video for "Doesn't Feel Right"

Louis Johnson has released his debut EP Youth under his relatively new moniker, Lonas. Though he's lived and played in Nashville for the better part of the decade, Johnson created Lonas after his duo The Saint Johns signed with Dr. Luke's Prescription Songs to release their latest album. Needing a change of direction from that toxicity, Johnson spent time reconnecting with old musician friends, writing his own songs, and creating the framework for what has become Lonas and Youth. The melodic and folk-adjacent tracks of Lonas come from Johnson's experiences alone; a blend of millennial ennui, grief over lost friends and embattled families, and anxiety stemming from financial and spiritual discord power the lyrics and create some of the most raw music Johnson's ever put out. 

Along with the release, Johnson has released a music video for a live acoustic jam version of "Doesn't Feel Right", showcasing his Nashville-based musician friend circle; take a look at it below. - Will Sisskind

Bluegrass artist Billy Strings releases "Taking Water" from upcoming sophomore album

Billy Strings has released "Taking Water", his first single from his upcoming sophomore album HOME, set to come out on September 27th. While Michigan-born Strings' acoustic-heavy sound remains undeniably bluegrass -- complete with accompaniment from the banjo, fiddles, and bass -- he finds ways to add in hints of punk, ambient, and psych rock to his tunes. It results in a gripping country sound that makes a song like "Taking Water" a breathtaking listen. Strings will hit the road this month on a nationwide tour supporting the release of HOME; catch him in Nashville when he returns for a show on September 11th at Americanafest. Take a listen to "Taking Water" below. - Will Sisskind





King Corduroy drops music video for Americana track "Workin' for a Livin"

Americana artist King Corduroy will release his new EP Avalon Ave. on August 16th; to preview the drop, he's released the single "Workin' for a Livin", along with its music video. A little rootsy and swampy, "Workin' for a Livin" mixes a little Texas blues and Southern rock with sounds from the Mississippi Delta and New Orleans' French Quarter. For the better part of the past decade, King Corduroy has written songs that reflect the world around him, and "Workin' for a Livin" helps to tell the stories of people doing whatever it takes to get by in the somewhat unstable world we live in today. Take a look at the music video for the single, which features little clips of people on the job doing what they can to survive. - Will Sisskind





07.19: Them Fixes bring electric buzz to Springwater Supper Club

Buzzworthy alt-rockers Them Fixes will bring their electric music to Springwater Supper Club on July 19th to support the release of their debut EP Electric Prophetic. The duo of Dustin Rye and Shawn Jones formed in 2017, and throughout the next year they cut their teeth blasting out the speakers of Nashville's many bars and venues. Electric Prophetic contains four tracks, including previously released singles "Fangs" and "Kill The Nights"; every track hits the compression hard with guitars and drums that pound against your ears. It reflects the kind of energy that Them Fixes want to channel through their music; sometimes even the best headphones can't handle it. If you want to get the real effect, go see Them Fixes live at Springwater Supper Club on July 19th, where they'll share the stage with The Stone Eye, Ape Vermin, and Blacklight Velvets. Take a listen to the band's second single "Kill The Nights" below. - Will Sisskind
