July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Kyle Andrews Releases Video for "Get Mad (Bump in the Nite)"

In honor of the spooky season, Kyle Andrews rounded up some hotties and director Seth Graves to put out this booze-influenced video. "Get Mad (Bump in the Nite)" is off Andrew's is the first track off the new EP of the same name that he just released a week ago. Ever the pop genius, he manages to put a few tweaks on tracks that sound completely Halloween appropriate, but can also easily stand alone. He's giving away the "Get Mad" EP to the first 75 in the door at Monster Bash tonight, where he is one of the heavy hitters in the lineup. Speaking of which, we just learned that there is a change of venue for that event, from Silver Point Studios to apparently haunted Donelson Bowl at 117 Donelson Pike. If this night wasn't already killer, the bowling just put it over the top. -Terra James-Jura

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
