Notable Nashville: Bringing the Best Local Artists to You

Sifting through all the local tunes Music City has to offer can be a little daunting. Luckily, the guys at Notable Nashville have done the digging for you, and they're cranking out interviews and in-studio performances by your new favorite artists in their weekly podcast.
Hosted by Groove Doctor J and produced by Gary Branigan (Palaver Records) and Jordan Johansen, each episode features insightful interviews and acoustic performances with the cream of Nashville's bountiful crop. Pair that with a snappy theme song and Gary's Pick of the Week, and you've got one heck of a program.
Check out this week's episode, featuring singer/songwriter Kiernan McMullen, here.

Painted Palms Release New Single – Tracers

The popular San Francisco based electro pop artists, Painted Palms have released a new single entitled, Tracers after returning from a bit of a hiatus. We’re excited to hear some new music from them and are equally excited to hear that they’re set to release their full length album, Horizons on September 4th on Polyvinyl.

Check out this fresh new track that is more upbeat than their earlier work which was darker, more washed out and somber. We like what they were doing then and we dig what they’re doing now. Check out this track and we’ll keep you posted on when they line up local live performances.

Weekend Warrior, July 3 - 5

Tonight, Underground Arts presents a lineup that touches on traditional sensibilities with an eccentric twist and undeniable energy. West Philadelphia Orchestra ushers in that contagious Balkan blast of horns, threading together songs that draw individuals out of their shell with their dance-inspiring productions that methodically win one’s body over. The soulful funk of Johnny Showcase & The Mystic bring their tongue-in-cheek style that injects a humorous twist. Be prepared to move it, and shake it as those classic tones get a modern reawakening! Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

DC's punk/emo revival duo The Obsessives release a single and announce their upcoming debut LP

Some of us are starting to feel old, hearing genre names like "Emo Revival". Emo music hasn't truly been around since those side-bangs + snake-bite days of myspace yore, has it? But no matter the year, there will always be kids in high schools getting their hearts stomped on and making bold eyeliner decisions, and the music must follow by whatever fashion. DC's two-piece The Obsessives have been pals since childhood, and channeled the final bits of their collective teenage angst into a debut LP entitled "Heck No, Nancy" (a direct quote from Slaughterhouse Five). The LP was written and recorded within their last few weeks of high school and will release this September. They put a single out just a few days ago - "Daisy"- that follows two people from the first time they meet and discuss books and solitude (loves-at-first-sight hit peak hour during study hall/detention) to the present where their friendship "has grown into a sad display". This may be their debut LP, but it will be the duo's fourth musical release within the past three years. The Obsessive's have got the spunk of The Front Bottoms paired with the proud fetal position perfected by Dashboard Confessional. "Heck No, Nancy" is available now for pre-order via Near Mint on vinyl and Bandcamp.

The Magnetic Snarl of VHS

To who it may concern,

New trash punkers, VHS, will fill up yer ever lovin’ head with their particular design of garage snot. A gross amalgamation of; florescent vocals from basement realms, hard biting lyrical solos, noisy anthems floating high above the fray, and steel guitar strings sawing through glass (which has never been quite so euphonious), all wrapped up in the magnetic world of VHS. For reference think early Cribs, Wipers, or the late Jay Reatard (RIP). You still ridin’ homie? …aces! Then stumble your ass down to the Crocodile on the 7th of July and give this now freshly toured squad a what up! They join post-rockers Trans Am and Midday Veil to burn it down. New EP “Chocking on the Fruit” released late last month, HAVE A HEAR.
