Best of CMJ: Nashville's Gnarwhal

From Jake's report of Day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2015: "Next was Nashville-based, post-hardcore trio Gnarwhal.  They put out an amazing four way split EP with Ovlov, Woozy and Ex-Breathers, which I highly recommend you listening to.  They're a loud-ass math rock band, bringing me back to the days of Fiasco and Tera Melos.  They've got a very Nashville atmosphere to them as well, with their long hair, playing everything twice as fast as it needs to be played, and stopping maybe once during the set to tell people who they were.  They're a powerhouse, that's for sure."

The Wans, "Never Win"

September 9th saw the release of The Wan's album "He Said, She Said" and was shortly followed by this video for "Never Win." The Wans nail their juncture of Southern and alternative rock, and it turns out they nail comedy pretty well too, with this montage of the Worst Day Ever. For some reason, watching vocalist Simon Kerr sing straight-faced through a mouthful of Wan-Os struck us as profoundly funny. The trio are part of the lineup for tonight's Monster Bash at Silver Point Studios, with no dates on the books beyond that yet, so come out to the show tonight and keep up with the boys at thewansmusic.com. -Terra James-Jura

Chrome Pony, "Burnout"

Are the next few posts just a thinly veiled plug for tomorrow night's Monster Bash 2014? Or is it just a coincidence that so many bands in the lineup have done some really cool stuff in the past few months? Tough to say; with 16 bands in the lineup, the numbers could go either way.

Chrome Pony released this video for "Burnout" in support of their EP "You Are the Pisces" released this August. Shot in Puerto Rico, it's mostly footage of what kids do when their f*cking around in a US territory: drinking, skateboarding, making upside-down faces, playing ridiculously spot-on, grungy odes to, well, being young and disaffected. Okay, so kids don't typically do the last bit, probably because they don't have a grasp on the finer points of the organ's role in garage rock.

The brothers Davis and crew are following up their appearance at Monster Bash on Friday night with a show at The Stone Fox on November 1st with Avi Buffalo and Adia Victoria. Check out "You Are the Pisces" on their Bandcamp. -Terra James-Jura

Year of October Release Video for "Gone"

Following the Quentin Tarantino school of thought that good music is enhanced by bad kung fu (or is it vice-versa?) Year of October put out this video at the beginning of this month for their song "Gone." The track is off their brand new album "Golden Days," which was just released on October 11th. We're clearly digging us some steady, gritty blues this week, and are thrilled to be able to find it in our own backyard. Year of October have the notoriety of winning our Artist of the Month earlier this year, and have clearly been hard at work since then, hitting the road on a regular basis between recoding stints. They hit Springwater Supper Club on November 15th with The Dead Gypsies and Fat Tuesday and the New Custards. -Terra James-Jura

Whoa Dakota, "The Sand"

In case you missed Whoa Dakota's unveiling of this video for "The Sand" earlier this month, here it is for your Monday morning. It's a quick number with a slow burn; we dig the gopro action and their gradual creep up to a vengeful crescendo. They may look like kids, but they can sing some mean blues. Stay tuned to this band for an upcoming single as a follow-up to their six-song EP ealier this year, and catch them at The 5 Spot on December 2nd. -Terra James-Jura
