Benjamin Cartel to release album at Rockwood Stage 3 on 10.21

Fresh off of an appearance on WFMU's The Goddamn Dave Hill Show, Benjamin Cartel returns to Rockwood on October 21st to release his newest album, Flickering Light. The record contains more of the indie sound which propelled Cartel's songwriting and musical abilities to the eyes and ears of New York audiences as a solo artist and as a member of his duo, Kaiser Cartel. Cartel will play Stage 3 with his band; Violet Skies, soul artist Arthur Lewis, and the Andre Carvalho Group will open. Watch the video for "Down Now", a single from Flickering Light, below. - Will Sisskind


New Borzoi Boy EP Available for Streaming & Download

Philly singer-songwriter Alexandra Gordon is now recording under the moniker Borzoi Boy ("like the Russian greyhound"). Enter The Light captures a certain hushed, candlelit, emotive intimacy. Letting the listener in on the thoughts that are encased in one's mind, Gordon figures out her next move, while reminiscing on love and feelings of loneliness. The duality of brightness and bleakness grips as the sun trickles in through the curtains.

New Track: "Point of Personal Privilege" - Weller

“Point of Personal Privilege” serves as the second single off Weller’s full-length debut, due out on October 20. Gradually illustrating a poignant heart-wrenching tale, that optimistic imagery is torn to pieces by the harshness of reality. Somber self-evaluations, accentuated by the warm build of backing harmonies, come crashing, battered by swells of tension-releasing instrumentation. On Saturday, November 4, JJ’s Diner will be hosting the band’s record release show, with Three Man Cannon and Allegra rounding out the lineup.

TAYLS bringing psych pop fun to The East Room for Halloween (10.27)

Taylor Cole, formerly of Nashville’s Chalaxy and Creature Comfort, is back with a new psych pop outfit, TAYLS. Their first single “Pop Tart (Queer Boy/Small Town)” was released earlier this year, highlighting Cole’s soaring, Beck-like vocals over a grooving and swaying pop track bringing to mind the likes of Grouplove. “I want to change the way Nashville views music and art,” Cole states. “I want to make you forget about your real life, make you feel like you’re back on the playground.” If what is to follow carries the same sense of carefree joy as their first offering, TAYLS are going to be a welcome change to Nashville’s already diverse scene. Make sure to catch them playing a Halloween party at The East Room October 27th at 9 PM along with Spaceface, The Subnovas, and TWEN! - Chris Thiessen
