More From Ranch Ghost

unnamedOnly about a month ago we shared with you the first single from Nashville based Ranch Ghost and today I’m ready to share another impressive song. This one is entitled “Black Caboose” and features more of that sweet psych inspired sound we already loved about the band. I can actually picture the guys playing this song live in my mindwith these snarling vocals and fist pumping punk themes underneath. I dig.

Lookin will be out on July 1st via Rough Beast Records.

Carey Sign to Old Flame Records

careyNashville’s been picking up a lot of national credibility (though we all know it’s been there for years) as of late, and it looks like Carey could be another one of the acts to burst forth from that scene. They’ve just signed on with the reliable Old Flame Records, bringing a crunchy bit of guitar pop to your ears. Like only the best of the genre, they fill the distorted riffs with catchy hooks and anthemic lyrics that you can sing over and over. Look for their EP to come your way on March 11th.

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.

Get Rowdy With Pujol

PujolWhen looking for a little rowdy rock fun with some dashes of pop sprinkled here and there, one need look no further than Nasvhille based Pujol.  Long a staple on ATH, Daniel Pujol and his band of misfits create their own unique brand of rock n roll that can be called garage rock, punk rock, or even indie rock dependent on who you ask.  However you like to label the guy, you can’t deny his songwriting capabilities.  Today we have a new rowdy and rockin’ track to enjoy called “June Bug”.  This one appears on an exclusive Record Store Day release as a split single with fellow Nashville artist Meth Dad.

P.S. – Record store day is this weekend dummies.  You’re welcome.

You Might Wanna Check Out Penicillin Baby

pbTired of the typical psychedelic influences growing in your record collection?  Well, perhaps you’ll enjoy the slight twist that Nashville’s Penicillin Baby have put on the sound, bringing in a more melodic focus to the structure that’s previously been established.  Sure, the sound of the guitar is still there, soloing off into the distance, but the vocals and the groove of the track below really implore you to appreciate a more pop-tastic approach.  As of now, they’re working on finishing up a new album, so this is the first taste you’ll get of good things to come your way.

Perfect Pop From COIN

coin_mediumThis is COIN. We last talked about them in October of 2013 and this song popped up on my radar of things to listen to and I got around to it. Glad I did.

We are suckers for superbly executed power pop and COIN has it the formula in spades. Synthy flourishes, memorable chord structures and a wicked hook. There is something in the water in Nashville right now; they are happier people, I guess. This single is a hint of the record to come, Looking forward to hearing the rest. They are on the road for a segment of the current Grizfolk tour so DC, Philly, Boston and Brooklyn readers will be able to see them starting tomorrow night and on to the weekend and though I wasn’t wildly impressed with Grizfolk maybe COIN‘s set will make it worth the ticket…

Nice Bit of Americana from Charlie and the Foxtrots

charlieIt seems like Nashville is becoming the hot scene of the moment, especially for music that bares the soul of America’s musical history.  Charlie and the Foxtrots is another one of those bands building a name for themselves both within and outside of the city.  They blend elements of pop with that classic Americana sound, though I’ll admit that the vocals of Chas Wilson are definitely one of the shining highlights of this tune.  The band will be releasing their album on Golden this summer, July 8th.

New Sludge Rocker From Western Medication

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.
