Szlachetka delivers heartwarming heartland rock on "Heart of My Hometown"

His name may look hard to pronounce, but the heartland rock and americana delivered by Szlachetka (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) is easy to love. February marked the release of Szlachetka's debut full length Heart of My Hometown which blends sweet, heartwarming folk ballads ("Wildflowers on the Highway") with the type of crunchy rock tracks you'd expect from vintage Tom Petty ("Until That Echo"), all wrapped up in a modern package a la Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. If you missed him at 3rd & Lindsley last week, make sure to check out the record! And listen to "Heart of My Hometown" below. - Chris Thiessen

Nashville's Oddnote rocks hard on self-titled debut

Just formed last summer, five-piece rock outfit Oddnote is packing a punch with their self-titled debut. Seamlessly combining hard-hitting blues rock (see "Money Comes, Money Goes") with Nirvana/Soundgarden/Foo Fighters-inspired '90s rock and roll (see "Ice Hell", "Neurons", and the whole album pretty much), the 15 tracks of Oddnote feel like a rocket blast. Make sure to check out the Nashville shoutout on "615" as well! And watch the trippy video for "Money Comes, Money Goes" below! - Chris Thiessen

Blues Rockers Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones storm in

Blues rocker Hannah Wicklund and her group The Steppin Stones are locked and loaded to burst onto the Nashville indie rock scene with their self-titled LP due out today, January 26! Wicklund is a guitar-wielding burst of fire taking cues from '60s and '70s rockers from Hendrix to Petty. Lead single "Bomb Through the Breeze" was released late last year, and leads off the album-- an album which is sure to be one of the most exciting releases to come out of Nashville in 2018!

Ron Pope returns with "Worktapes" EP this Friday!

Just last year, Ron Pope released his seventh studio album Work to much acclaim, even being named one of "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone Country. Obviously, seven albums in, "new" is a relative term. But the work Pop has put in over the past decade shows time and again. Now this Friday, Pope is releasing a 7-track companion EP titled Worktapes. Lead single "Twin Falls Idaho" shows off Pope's picturesque storytelling and breathy Americana vocal performance over a stripped back piano-led track. Check out the single below and look out for Worktapes this Friday! - Chris Thiessen
