Penicillin Baby Release Single "Stick It Out"

Feeling a little feverish? We got some new Penicillin Baby to cure what ails you. These guys are all action for 2015. They're just finishing up their new album and are currently on a spring jaunt across the Southeast that has not one but TWO hometown shows: March 11th at Mercy Lounge with Gunther Doug and Chrome Pony, and March 23rd at Queen Art Collective with Ava Luna, Body of Light, and Lala Lala. Check out their awesome new jam "Stick It Out" that just dropped yesterday. We feel high and sunburnt just listening to that surfy guitar dance amid all of that fuzz. We've heard unspecified rumors of "big things" coming from these guys "soon," so consider out interest piqued. However, if its a concept album that syncs up with an arthouse flick from the 70's...we're out. This town is too small. -Terra James-Jura

ELEL's Self-Titled Debut EP is Out TODAY!

Just a quick head's up, today is the release date of ELEL's self-titled debut EP. Nashville is clearly endeared by the 8-piece world-jams-meet-indie-pop extravaganza, considering that they won our overall poll for Best Emerging Artist of 2014. Ben Elkins and the crew's first effort has found a home with Mom+Pop Records alongside the likes of Andrew Bird, Cloud Nothings, and Wild Cub. Check it out HERE. ELEL is stopping in Nashville in the middle of their spring tour for an EP release show at The Stone Fox. Get your tickets early, as the show has a good chance of selling out! -Terra James-Jura

Congratulations to Howling Giant, Our New Artist of the Month!

 Howling Giant swept our most recent Artist of the Month poll, emerging easy victors with 59% of the vote. Of course, they had a bunch of newly converted fans to rally support from, thanks their new EP released just this January. Who could not like a band that "plays self-indulgent, drop-tuned, fuzzed out riffs that could curdle milk?" Check out the epic "Whale Lord" to hear what they're talking about. -Terra James-Jura

Nashville's Torres is now Brooklyn based

Catchy magazine headlines and conversations overheard on the train might lead you to suspect a mass exodus out of NYC, but recently Brooklyn snagged Mackenzie Scott of the songwriting project Torres away from Nashville. For many artists, nostalgia is an easy route, but Torres’ songs rarely allow that kind of distance — there is something dangerous and she’s touching it now, she has a fresh cut and she’s washing it now. Scott will sing a statement with grace and tolerance but repeat the line until it drives her mad enough to shriek it. Torres primarily utilizes guitar and drums with influences of folk, country, and punk, but Scott’s voice is the power capital. In the past Torres has toured with Lady Lamb The Beekeeper, worked with Sharon Van Etten and War on Drugs, released two albums. She recently headlined at Brooklyn Night Bazaar and Bowery Ballroom. This May she will embark on a U.S. and European tour. - Leora Mandel

The Last Chance Dance is TONIGHT!

Alright ya mooks, our little shindig with Kelly Ruth and friends is TONIGHT! We hope to catch you this evening at Lucky Bamboo (5855 Charlotte Pike, right next to K&S Market), toting a six pack in one hand (remember, it's BYOBeeee!) and a fistful of raffle tickets in the other (we have prizes from Pinewood Social, Sack of Cats, Crema, Lindsay Walker Jewelry and Young Gun Apparel, to name a few.) We have tickets for sale here: http://tickets.soundstampmusic.com/last-chance-dance/, otherwise they will be $10 at the door. There's also the option of paying $20 at the door to take part in a hot pot feast courtesy of our gracious hosts at Lucky Bamboo.  Doors are at 8, then we have Twiggs kicking off the night at 9, followed by Kelly Ruth, Korby Lenker, and Blackfoot Gypsies closing out the night. If you've never had a Blackfoot Gypsy nightcap, it will look a little like this (just, ya know, with a koi pond in the middle of the room. Sidenote, don't molest the koi.):
