Friday Feature: An Interview With The Daily Howl

Earlier in April, this editor made the trip out to Hermitage to sit down with The Daily Howl, Reader’s Choice winners of The Deli Nashville’s Best Emerging Artist of 2013 Poll. Between their hyperactive stage show, devotion to specific era of the Beatles career, and savvy promotion tactics, The Daily Howl are a powerhouse of a band that demanded their own feature this Friday. Read on to learn more about their history, social media strategies, and the worst place to get a burger in North Carolina. -Terra James-Jura

Whoa Dakota Release Video for "So Much Trouble"

 Whoa Dakota released their first EP March 21st, after several breathy assurances onstage from frontwoman Jessica Ott that is would be "soon" (which, in the music industry, translates to 3 days to a year from time spoken.) Along with it comes this video for "So Much Touble," a slow burner that showcases Ott's crystalline vocals and the jazz influence that drives the band. The EP is nicely gritty, ranging from folk rock ("Get Along") to vengeful, knock-you-down blues ("The Rock That Made Me Mistep,") all laid out with a teasing sense of deliberation. The self-titled debut is available for download here, and keep checking their website for their next Nashville appearance, as they have an commanding live show. -Terra James-Jura


+ Works Anti-Bullying Benefit at The Listening Room 4.23.14

The Deli Nashville has a tendency to shy away from the country scene, by and large, as it feels that ball of wax gets plenty of attention.  However, The Deli Nashville also has a penchant for artists with personality that flirt with the boundaries of their respective genre, who are also decidedly not awful.  If they represent a good cause, all the better.  That being said, Olivia Lane is holding a fundraiser for anti-bullying foundation +Works tomorrow night at The Listening Room.  She's joined by Ben Bradford, Leland Grant and Baylor Wilson for an in-the-round performance beginning from 6-8pm.  Check out the song "You Do You" and notice how refreshingly free it is from mentions of porch swings, screen doors and being 22. -Terra James-Jura



Justin Kalk Orchestra Releases Video for "Dirty Thing"

The Justin Kalk Orchestra has tossed out this nugget in hopes of calming fans foaming at the mouth for the summer release of their second album, “Volcano.” “Dirty Thing” utilizes Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman (Christ, the cover. Give it to me.) and gets the band involved in the claymation on this new video. The result is fun, yet oddly nostalgic and unsettling at the same time. And rest assured, the giraffes make it in the video, and the band hits just as hard in this new single, and their accompanying haze of blues and psychedelia is just as impenetrable. Of course, hell is more likely to freeze over than Kalk walking into a project at anything less than a breakneck swagger. -Terra James-Jura
