Still working my way through the endless SXSW emails, and hiding in there was this gem from Western Medication that hit at the end of the week while I was knee deep in Lone Star. The quartet hails from Nashville’s DIY scene, and while they’ve had a few releases, this track is celebrating the completion of their debut album. Guitars take on that dreamy circular jangle, while the vocals provide a more emphatic approach to songwriting, giving a natural energy to the tune. Honestly, this seems like the perfect progression that’s been so dear to many people’s hearts for some time, bringing pop music in a distinct direction. Look for their debut, The Entertainer’s Secret, on April 15th via Funeral Party.
Well this here song is short and sweet so I shall respond in kind with a to the point post. The song is called “Big City” and comes from Nashville rockers Western Medication. It is fast. It is mean. It is also badass.
If you like under a minute songs, the band have a new EP entitled The Painted World coming out on January 29th via Jeffery Drag Records. Enjoy.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/big-city.mp3]
