Show Preview: Natalie Prass + Promised Land Sound @ Stubbs (Tonight)

natalieThere’s tons of happenings this week, but I feel like this one deserves more publicity than it’s getting at the moment. Surely that has to do with the fact that it’s the show following the huge crowd expected for Mac Demarco outdoors. Still, you’re going to want to check out Natalie Prass; she’s worked with a lot of incredible musicians and her soulful voice is worth the price of entry alone…just listen to the track at the bottom. But, to top off the evening, she’ll be joined by Promised Land Sound, who we’ve covered pretty extensively building up to their recent release, For Use and Delight. It’s a night full of really great voices…I think you’ll be best served by being on hand. Tickets are $14 and doors open at 9:30 PM .

Promised Land Sound Give Us A New One

988605_388342504603069_2075855350_nWe’ve given some love to Promised Land Sound in the past so you shouldn’t be surprised to see their name mentioned here again.  Today they have this great new track “Otherworldly Pleasures” for your listening pleasure.  It’s a little bit psychedelic with dashes of Americana and maybe even just a hint of folk stylings for good measure.

You can pick up new album For Use and Delight on October 2nd via Paradise of Bachelors.

Rolling Good Times from Promised Land Sound

plsI’ve quite enjoyed the tunes I’ve gotten recently from Promised Land Sound, the Nashville quartet who’ve quickly been making waves in their hometown as well as across the nation.  Their sound reminds me of the gritty country garage rock that comes from bands like Natural Child, though I think the production quality on these tunes is superior.  The guitars have a nice polish that cleans up the sound, yet it still maintains both the grit and the spirit of what I think the band is trying to accomplish. Their debut self-titled debut will be out on September 24th via Paradise of Bachelors.

Promised Land Sound Debut New Single

PLS4_webPromised Land Sound is one of the latest bands to break out of Nashville, and while those before them have had a heavier edge (Pujol for ejemplo), these guys seem to sound exactly like what I always imagined would hail from their cit.  Guitars slide and there’s a blend of americana lurking in it all, but emotional pull in this song is what really sold me on the group.  They’ve completed work on their self-titled debut, which will see a September 24th release date on Paradise of Bachelors.  Dig the sound of the heart of America.
