Taco Mouth releases "A Deafening Silence" EP on 10.26 at The 5 Spot

The world needs bands with brilliant names, so thank goodness for Taco Mouth, who will release their new EP A Deafening Silence on October 26th at The 5 Spot. Taco Mouth formed in late 2017 as the brainchild of Erica Sellers and Angie Lese, two friends who started playing music together as CatFight in Louisville in the early 2010s. Nashville indie vets may know Sellers and Lese from The Dead Deads, the spiritual predecessor to Taco Mouth. Their music still sears eardrums with its punk inspiration; they seek to create songs that would've captivated audiences at CBGB or the Troubadour back in the underground's first golden age. Watch the video for Taco Mouth's first single "You Say" below, and catch the release party for A Deafening Silence on October 26th. - Will Sisskind


Lauren Morrow releases debut EP; plays Bluebird Cafe 10.16

On October 12th, Nashville folk-country singer-songwriter Lauren Morrow released her debut self-titled EP at a show at The Basement East. The new EP marks Morrow's first as a solo artist, having split off from The Whiskey Gentry last year. This record compiles a handful of songs ranging from chronicles about family ("Viki Lynn") to a missing grandmother ("Barbara Jean") to getting psyched up over an episode of Mad Men ("I Don't Think About You At All"). Morrow will perform songs from the record at her upcoming show at The Bluebird Cafe on October 16th, as well as at 3rd and Lindsey on October 28th for Lightning 100's Nashville Sunday Night. For now, watch Morrow and her band perform "Viki Lynn" on Today in Nashville below. - Will Sisskind

Airpark release left-coast inspired "Devotion" single

Airpark released a new single called "Devotion" on October 12th, previewing what's to come on their upcoming EP Songs of Airpark. "Devotion" was one of the first songs the indie folk brother duo recorded in Denver during sessions for the EP, which is being produced by Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley of the synth-pop group Tennis. It embodies a sunny vibe that speaks more to July than October, but that comes from the more left-coast inspired sound, where it feels like July almost all the time. The EP will include songs that have the sound you'll hear on "Devotion", with the general theme centered on "confronting and overcoming confict". That record will drop early next year; for now, take a listen to "Devotion" below. - Will Sisskind


High South plays The Basement on 10.27 to release EP "Change in the Wind"

High South joins the family of American bands who tour around other countries to grow their following before building a base in the U.S. Though the group have a sizable fan base in the States, they've spent the years since 2015 making trips to share their music with audiences all across Europe. Now, on the heels of the release of their EP Change in the Wind, the band seek to expand their American footprint. Having just returned from a tour of Germany, High South will perform three shows later this month; one in Chicago, one in Indianapolis, and one at home in Nashville, all to promote their record release. Guest singer-songwriter, LA-based Pearl, will join the band for their shows, adding her voice to each night of High South's trio of harmonies. Watch the video for High South's latest single "Make It Better" below, and catch them in Nashville on October 27th at The Basement. - Will Sisskind
