H.A.R.D team up with Nashville alternative heroes on "Bellyacher"

H.A.R.D (short for Have A Rad Day) were formed after the breakup of Light Beam Rider by Thomas Sweat, Daniel Sowards, Brady Gomillion and Zach Fierman. And they are now sharing their high-energy brand of anthem-y alternative rock with debut single "Bellyacher". Diarrhea Planet's Jordan Smith and The Weeks' Cyle Barnes feature on the song to bring the energy level to a whole new level as they chant, "I don't give a fuck what I said." Check out "Bellyacher" below and be sure to be on the lookout for H.A.R.D's EP coming this spring! - Chris Thiessen


Riley Moore is Nashville's newest alt country "Wandering Man"

The trope of the wandering musician is a familiar one. We've all heard the Allman Brothers' "Ramblin' Man" or Dion's "The Wanderer" or even more recently, Chris Stapleton's "Traveller". But the longevity of this trope shows the reality of the hard life of a musician on the road. Nashville's Riley Moore took this trope and lived it out like no other however when he toured 1,600 miles from Portland to Nashville ON FOOT. Perhaps inspired by that experience, Moore is now sharing throwback country single "Wandering Man" ahead of his album Vagrant due out in June. Check out the song below. And if you missed him at The Basement this week, catch Riley Moore the next time he wanders through town! - Chris Thiessen

Nashville indie rockers Khamsin debut "A Brief Look Down"

The four guys of Nashville's Khamsin have smartly and seamlessly combined the atmospheric vastness of guitar-driven indie rock with the passionate and catchy vocals of pop punk on their newest two-song EP, A Brief Look Down. Both "Ferment" and "Gather" show promise for this young band who have an ear for both experimentation and accessibility. Listen to the EP below and catch Khamsin at That 70's House in Nashville on March 23rd! - Chris Thiessen


Kellen of Troy is very alive on indie rock debut "Posthumous Release"

Formerly a fiddle player for The Apache Relay, Kellen Wenrich has struck out on his own as Kellen of Troy. His debut full-length Posthumous Release offers self-reflective lyricism through a fusion of indie pop, rock, and folk that draws strongly from the melodic influences of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and occasionally '50s rock & roll, situating Wenrich nicely beside contemporaries Lord Huron and Kurt Vile. Check out the album below and be sure to look out for the next time Kellen of Troy is in town! - Chris Thiessen
