Congratulations to Lauryn Peacock, our New Artist of the Month!

Congratulations to Lauryn  Peacock, our new Artist of the month! The transient songstress lead a strong and tireless campaign straight out of the gate (excuse the derby reference...) that would eventually secure her rightful place at the top of this site. Peacock built the foundation of her musical career in Chicago and Philadelphia, where she worled on her solo endeavors as well as toured with mewithoutyou. She's drawn upon the great reperetoire of friends and experiences built over the last few years in the making of her newest album, "Euphonia." The album is due out June 26th, with the plainative, haunting single "Wounds Grow Grass" offering a tantalizing glimse into the rich and highly orchestrated universe Peacock has spent the so much time and energy constructing. Peacock will be playing a album release show on June 27th in the loft at Mad Donna's. Check out www.laurynpeacock.com/ for more information and to learn more about our winner!



Nodaway "500 Days of Whatever"

If you missed Nodaway's EP release show at The High Watt on Tuesday night, never fear: the slick Nashville quartet will be hitting The Basement East on May 11th. In the interim, you have their debut EP "500 Days of Whatever" to soak up. If you're in need of something upbeat, cheeky, and entirely danceable, front man Chris Jobe and his crew have you covered. If you're more in the mood for some thundering sythn-driven rhythms, well, they still have you covered. Need proof? Take a listen to their single "Hairspray." The track was inspired by a seemingly innocent relationship that slowly became toxic, much like an overused bottle of Aquanet. See, we said that they were cheeky. Check out their website at nodawaymusic.tumblr.com, and listen to the EP at http://noisetrade.com/nodaway/500-days-of-whatever



Young Brother, "Man Up"

"Man Up" is the second single from Dalton Diehl, aka Young Brother. "Kamakae" is the title of Young Brother's debut EP, due out June 2nd via Yobro Records. This will be Diehl's first release since his longtime band, Kansas City-based Christian alternative band Samestate parted ways. The track is fun and upbeat, with a little left-field instrumentation in the mix to keep your ears engaged. This listener can hear a few bits of Diehl's past musical life filtering into this song, from a soaring pre-chorus swell and an overwhelming sense of positivity (editor's note: not that there's anything wring with this.) Check out the track below and learn more about Young Brother at www.youngbrothermusic.com.


Smooth Hound Smith celebrates release party on May 30th at The Basement

Smooth Hound Smith is a foot stompin' American roots and blues duo comprised of "One-Man-Band" Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas) and Caitlin Doyle (vocals/percussion). Established in 2012, they record and perform a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. 
They are going to celebrate the release of their new album on May 30th at The Basement. The record may feature single "Crazy Over You" (streaming below), which was uploaded on Soundcloud in the second half of 2014.


Congratulations to Mos. Bros. Our New Artist of the Month!

Congratulations to the Mos. Bros. for winning our latest Artist of the Month poll! We're hoping that this was a clean match, and that no one took any advice on how to scam the system from a certain recently-run (and highly entertaining) piece.

We're not at all surprised that the Mos. Bros. won this contest. The North Carolina-born twin brothers, Will and Bobby, build their brand of indie rock on a foundation of solid songwriting with an alt-rock bent. The brothers took a step back after being flattened by the mainstream music wringer, and refocused their energy into playing songs more authentic to themselves. The pair just put out an EP this march, entitled "Three," and are preparing for a live, streaming performance of material off their upcoming full-length on May 5th (more details here.) Keep up with the siblings and their fierce crusade of independence at www.mosbrosmusic.com.
