Moruga Scorpio Releases EP "1"

Moruga Scorpio's debut EP, 1, is an unapologetic collection of sweet, groovy, pop tunes that even music snobs can get into. The tunes blend surfy, classic sounding pop reminiscent of The Beach Boys with darker, heavier, weirder, psychedelic elements that bring The Butthole Surfers to mind. The songs are self-proudced by Evan Donohue, the mastermind behind Moruga Scorpio and former Diarrhea Planet member. Upon listening, it seems he harbors a strong distate genre limitations. There really isn't a single category you can definitively box these songs into, and that makes his music exciting. Morgua Scorpio is for anyone who simply likes great songs with great production. Give it a listen:

Miki Fiki Releases Debut EP

Miki Fiki is a new project started by singer/songwriting Ted Hartog. His debut self-titled EP is a brass-heavy collection of heartbreaky pop tunes that have an irresistably sweet blend of nostalgia, catharsis and melancholy. Clearly influenced by indie pop sensations like Whitney and Ben Folds, Hartog's work is lyric-heavy, with triumphant melodies that stick like glue to memory. The EP's three songs chronicle the chaos of the post breakup emotional state and painstakingly organize it. If this short work is any indication of what's to come from Miki Fiki in the future, indie pop fans had better be on the lookout because, sonically, there's nothing else like this happening in Nashville.

Daddy Issues Releases Single Ahead of New Album "Deep Dream"

Daddy Issues is back with a bang, releasing a fiery single, “In Your Head,” from their upcoming album, Deep Dream. The tune chronicles the mess of emotion left behind after a breakup, marrying rage and melancholy in a way that brings 90s alt rock and grunge classics like Bikini Kill or Nirvana to mind. Sonically, this is the heaviest work the trio has ever made. The guitar tone is full bodied, with enough fuzz to make the highs crackle while the bass thunderously fills in the low end. The production is high quality, moving in the opposite direction of their previously lo-fi/diy style and bringing new clarity to the fuzzy, grunge revival they execute so well.  This is, without a doubt, the Nashville alt rock band to watch in 2017.

The Must-See Nashville Artists List for SXSW

As we celebrate SXSW this week, we've put together a curated list of Nashville's best emerging artists attending the festivities. We even highlighted a couple of our favorites (Faux Ferocious and Idle Bloom) for your enjoyment. 

Faux Ferocious is a band that tastefully toes the line between experimental noise rock and simple, fuzzy garage rock tunes. Their punk rock, chaotic energy is remiscent of indie rock classics like The Pixies or Wavves, but their expert musicianship is evident throughout their work. They know how to play expertly but keep it loose enough to make the songs feel uniquely human. Their latest album, Cloning the Rubicon is a garage turned alien spaceship. Atmospheric synth pads hold up bits and pieces of feedback, incomprehensibly delayed background vocals fragments and what sound like UFO landing noises. If you're into simple fuzz rock tunes drenched in pure chaos, Faux Ferocious is the band you don't want to miss at SXSW.


Idle Bloom is an outfit that refuses to stick with a single genre. They mash psych rock, fuzzy garage rock, and grunge together to create a unique sonic blend that's becoming increasingly rare in a music world that splits itself into specific sonic niches. Heavy, distorted guitars create a sound wall, occasionally crescendoing in reverb-soaked euphoria. The rhythm section is tight and nuanced, knowing exactly how when and how to let loose. The songs are varied and dynamic, but feel emotionally cohesive. The band's latest record, Little Deaths is like a psychedelic take on garage rock with a catalogue varied enough to attract music fans of all stripes.
