My New Music: Wild Cub – Youth

3 Oct

Two words: Wild Cub

Who? The dynamic duo of Keegan DeWitt and Jeremy Bullock

What?  A poppy sound you’re gonna love.  Filled with heavy synths and bright guitars; and two voices that complement each other flawlessly, you’ll be grooving from the start to Wild Cub.

Why you should listen? In August the duo dropped their debut LP, Youth.  Plus if you want a little flashback to the ‘80s blended with today, you’ll really dig this.

A reason you’ll be excited?  PASTE, SPIN, MTV, Filter Magazine, IFC, Consequence of Sound and more are all on the bandwagon of the Nashville duo and appearances at festivals like SXSW and Bonnaroo doesn’t suck either.

Why I’m excited: Listen to the songs “Thunder Clatter” and “Colour” and you’ll be hooked.

If you like: MNDR, White Arrows, Kopecky Family Band, Youth Lagoon.

Final thoughts: I’m kicking myself again for discovering another band post Bonnaroo.  Along with Jukebox The Ghost, these are the two bands I really wish I would have seen.  I’ve been listening to Youth since it dropped and have been absolutely hooked.


Countdown to Bonnaroo: 16 Days – Artist of the Day: Caitlin Rose

21 May

One, I was completely enamored the first time I listened to Caitlin Rose and two, I will be the first to tell you I don’t listen to country music often.  And yet, I find myself excited to check out her performance on Friday afternoon at Bonnaroo.  The Nashville artist has and very soothing voice and easy going sound that is contagious.  Plus every time I listen “Shanghai Cigarettes” I swear I hear the female version of Ryan Bingham.  Maybe it’s just me but now I’m just imagining what it might be like to hear these two artists collaborate together.

New Music: The Apache Relay

17 Jun

A band I recently started listening to and also had the opportunity to see live at Bonnaroo was The Apache Relay.  The roots-rock quartet hailing from Nashville, Tennessee is a band everyone needs to check out, especially if you are a fan of The Avett Brothers, John Butler Trio and The Boss, Bruce Springsteen.  On their latest record, American Nomad, the band’s energetic grooves and vocals of Michael Ford Jr. come together to unleash a sound that is contagious from start to finish; bouncing between soft, melodic sing-alongs and upbeat jams.  I will also say that while I dig the disc, seeing them live is where it’s at.

And one more reason to love and listen to The Apache Relay, they have already been on the road with one of my favorite artists, G. Love.


Countdown to Bonnaroo: 17 Days – Artist of the Day: Old Crow Medicine Show

23 May

It will be a get down good time on Saturday afternoon, June 11 as Old Crow Medicine Show, bring their folk, bluegrass sound back to Bonnaroo.  The Nashville, Tennessee based band should feel right at home and put on an energetic set worth catching.  Having recently wrapped up the Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, I wouldn’t be shocked to see some surprise guests at some point during the show (M&S perform three hours later).   Best known for the song, “Wagon Wheel,” I for one can’t wait to hear this tune live and in person.
