A Deli Premiere: Oginalii's "7799"

When it comes to the Nashville-based sludge-pop four-piece Oginalii, slowing down is not an option. With forthcoming EP The Grey coming out on October 20th, their build-up of momentum has been nonstop, between coverage, concerts, and SXSW showcases —and their music is the same way. The female-fronted group, whose name translates to “my friend” in Cherokee, is making waves in the Nashville scene with their complex arrangements, unapologetic songwriting, and technical skill. In the track “7799” (streaming below), front-woman Emma Hoeflinger’s vocals are positively lethal, while the track impressively alternates between a 7/8 and 9/8 time signature. Oginalii will be hitting up The Cobra tomorrow (09.22) for a live show that will definitely hush any doubts about the state of the local Nashville scene. - Lilly Milman

Indie poppers Bien release 'Electric Dream' EP

Electric Dream is the new standout EP from Nashville-trio Bien, which is made up of Jessie Early and husband and wife Angela and Tim Lauer. Tim Lauer, who has previously worked with The Civil Wars and Mikky Ekko, produced the project, stylistically combining hi- and lo-fi sounds to create a unique and dynamic track list. Their brand of indie electro-pop is at once soothing and exciting, with title track “Electric Dream” being just one example of their eclectic sound. Keep your fingers crossed for a tour announcement from these up-and-comers, and in the meantime stream all six songs from the Electric Dream EP below. - Lilly Milman

Nashville Under-the-Radar Emo: PORTSMOUTH

The solo act out of Nashville, PORTSMOUTH, brings down an avalanche of sentimental reflection with lyricism that speaks from experience. Intricate rhythmic guitar, chock full of ornate suspensions and hammer-ons, beautifully compliment the artist's subtly ambient, yet commanding, vocals. Popular emo themes of loss, past mistakes, and the never-ending search for self-improvement are beautifully embellished with spaced vocal phrasing that often builds to hard hitting choruses. Do yourself a favor and throw some PORTSMOUTH songs into you "in my feels" playlist for maximum self empathy, and look out for upcoming shows around the Nashville area. - Michael Simpson

The Still, Small Voice release 'Manage' EP + play the High Watt (09.19)

With their February release entitled Manage, the Nashville-based five-piece The Still, Small Voice have discovered their own, definitive melodic indie rock sound. The EP, which focuses on questioning that which once felt certain, is a six-track long serenade to Southern rock and pop. Lead vocalist Christiana Benton’s ballads are simultaneously sweet and serious. The track “Fear of Breaking” (streaming below) is just one example where she is able to break into an unexpected soprano that builds the song up over twinkling arrangements. And there’s certainly more where that came from on the rest of the EP. You can find The Still, Small Voice playing their next live show on September 19th at The High Watt. - Lilly Milman
