Josh Washam to play record release show at The Crying Wolf (10.08)

With two singles already released, singer-songwriter Josh Washam is quickly making a name for himself in Nashville in anticipation of his upcoming full-length LP The Washam Machine. The single “Misinformation” (streaming below) is a breezy, honest ballad about trust and communication. The energetic, driven Americana is stylistically similar to releases by established groups like The Avett Brothers, except with one main difference—Washam recorded this all on an 8-track machine in his home studio in Nashville. From the production, to the arrangements, to the cover, this album represents Nashville to its core. The Washam Machine is set to be released on October 6th, and Josh Washam will also be playing a record release show at The Crying Wolf on the 8th. - Lilly Milman





The Broomestix transcend generations capturing the magic of timeless funk and soul

With its groovy instrumentation, and killer lead vocalist, the young and infectious talent of the Broomestix will have you up on your feet ready to dance, in no time. Fitted with incredibly well arranged originals, the band members produce a sound reminiscent of funk/soul legends like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Aretha Franklin. The groups up-and-coming success not only stems from its original content, but also from its exalted high-energy live performances, taking place in the Nashville area and dozens of states along the east coast. The group has released two albums, jam-packed full of quirky horn riffs, fat chords, insightful lyricism, and smooth vocals; both are available on Spotify for your pleasure.

A Deli Premiere: Oginalii's "7799"

When it comes to the Nashville-based sludge-pop four-piece Oginalii, slowing down is not an option. With forthcoming EP The Grey coming out on October 20th, their build-up of momentum has been nonstop, between coverage, concerts, and SXSW showcases —and their music is the same way. The female-fronted group, whose name translates to “my friend” in Cherokee, is making waves in the Nashville scene with their complex arrangements, unapologetic songwriting, and technical skill. In the track “7799” (streaming below), front-woman Emma Hoeflinger’s vocals are positively lethal, while the track impressively alternates between a 7/8 and 9/8 time signature. Oginalii will be hitting up The Cobra tomorrow (09.22) for a live show that will definitely hush any doubts about the state of the local Nashville scene. - Lilly Milman

Indie poppers Bien release 'Electric Dream' EP

Electric Dream is the new standout EP from Nashville-trio Bien, which is made up of Jessie Early and husband and wife Angela and Tim Lauer. Tim Lauer, who has previously worked with The Civil Wars and Mikky Ekko, produced the project, stylistically combining hi- and lo-fi sounds to create a unique and dynamic track list. Their brand of indie electro-pop is at once soothing and exciting, with title track “Electric Dream” being just one example of their eclectic sound. Keep your fingers crossed for a tour announcement from these up-and-comers, and in the meantime stream all six songs from the Electric Dream EP below. - Lilly Milman

Nashville Under-the-Radar Emo: PORTSMOUTH

The solo act out of Nashville, PORTSMOUTH, brings down an avalanche of sentimental reflection with lyricism that speaks from experience. Intricate rhythmic guitar, chock full of ornate suspensions and hammer-ons, beautifully compliment the artist's subtly ambient, yet commanding, vocals. Popular emo themes of loss, past mistakes, and the never-ending search for self-improvement are beautifully embellished with spaced vocal phrasing that often builds to hard hitting choruses. Do yourself a favor and throw some PORTSMOUTH songs into you "in my feels" playlist for maximum self-empathy, and look out for upcoming shows around the Nashville area. - Michael Simpson
