Willow releases "Slumlord" EP, previews upcoming full-length "BlueLung"

Willow's Slumlord EP has finally been unleashed after recording delays held back its December release date. The four-song collection begins with the muffled vocals and layered guitars of “Fixtures," and things get even trippier on “Colors,” where warbling vocals and whistles fade in and out as guitars bounce off the walls of the nearly percussion-less production. The set closes with the sleepy “Breathe Water,” which also acts as the first release from BlueLung, the band's upcoming full-length debut. While a release date for the album has yet to be announced, you can keep tabs on the Providence rockers’ Facebook page to find out more about the band’s music and upcoming shows. – Jake Reed

Providence's The Range heads to SXSW

Providence's The Range (aka James Hinton) released his latest album, Nonfiction, on the UK label Donky Pitch last October, gaining him recognition both in the States and across the pond. The album's weirdest moments are its best: check out the dialogue that acts as a rap on "Metal Swing" and the slow ascent from spacious introduction to full-on electro jam. On March 25, he will release the EP Panasonic, but not before he makes the most out of a four-day stay in Austin for SXSW. Check out the full list of The Range’s SXSW stops above.  – Jake Reed

B. Dolan brings indie rap to SXSW

B. Dolan has big things lined up for 2014. In addition to taking on SXSW this March, an as-yet-untitled film that he penned will see production later this year. On his last release, 2012’s House of Bees Vol. 2, the Rhode Island rapper is a stylistic chameleon. “Still Here” plays around with a samples straight from the Middle East, while “King Bee” finds Dolan playing frontman to an anonymous rock band – and those are just the first two tracks. “2Bad (Epic Beard Men)” reclaims the carefree vibe of the Beastie Boys’ greatest tracks and “Tin Soldiers” uses marching drums and a sample of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Ohio” to lament the injustices of the U.S. military. Catch B. Dolan with fellow Rhode Island rapper Sage Francis at Club 512 in Austin on March 14. – Jake Reed
