Indie group Low Sol release self-titled EP

Relative newcomers to the Music City indie scene Low Sol have released their first EP, a four-track collection of songs they've played and honed since their formation. The band, led by singer-songwriter Landon Hunt, consists of music students seeking to create music based on influences from major indie names such as Weezer and Moose Blood. You can hear hints of those bands in Low Sol's sound; they fall somewhere between jangle pop and the anthem pop of groups like Grouplove. That electricity in their music helped their single "Tongue Tied" appear on Spotify's "Nashville On The Rise" playlist. The group released their self-titled debut EP at The Well on November 3rd; the album's now available on their Bandcamp page. Take a listen to it below. - Will Sisskind


Jon Pattie releases atmospheric EP "Reflections Vol. 1"

Rather than release a new LP of twelve songs, singer-songwriter Jon Pattie has chosen to release four three-song EPs; the first of these, called Reflections: Vol. 1, dropped on November 7th. The first salvo of atmospheric tracks by Pattie showcase his self-reflective lyrics, his knack for playing with effected string and horn instruments, and his ability to arrange harmonies around his carefully crafted melodies. Pattie, who hails from Texas, calls Bon Iver and John Mayer inspirations; the softness from both of those artists comes through on the new EP. Take a listen to the three tracks below. - Will Sisskind


Jacque Jordan releases new Americana EP "The L.J."

There's a smoky and carefree nature to Jacque Jordan's brand of folk indie; her newest EP The L.J. contains five tracks that Jordan has honed over the last several months to best show her style. As an Atlanta native who calls Nashville home, Jordan embodies the warmth of a Southern autumn night and the passion of a songwriter searching for the right words to paint a picture of her present moment. All of the songs on The L.J. contain field noise, which gives the impression that they were recorded live; that gives these polished songs the rough edge that makes Jordan's latest EP interesting. The album is available on Spotify; watch her live performance of the track "Wild Oats" below. - Will Sisskind


Iranian-American songwriter Sam Hale releases LP "Somewhere Between Love & War"

Sam Hale came to Nashville from Los Angeles in order to record and release his third album, titled Somewhere Between Love & War. This collection of songs written and performed by Hale came to life with the production expertise of Sam Kassirer, known for recording with Josh Ritter. The new album showcases Hale's blend of sounds, taking inspiration from standard fare indie rock and mixing in shades of EDM, classical, baroque pop, and emo. The title of the album sounds not just like an observation about the times we live in, but about Hale's own inner turmoil about uprooting his life to chase music in Nashville. But having listened to Somewhere Between Love & War, the end result sounds like it was worth it. Listen to the album below. - Will Sisskind


Jon Worthy & The Bends play Radio Cafe 11.19

Jon Worthy and his band The Bends play Radio Cafe on November 19th, but in the meantime, they've released a video for their track "Have It Your Way", an indie pop jam featuring fellow Nashville vocalist and songstress Stelle Amor. "Have It Your Way" comes from Worthy's album Only A Dream, which came out earlier this year. The band recorded the video at Front Porch Studios with Amor taking a verse and backing vocals on the chorus. The track is one of a few that Worthy's released as singles from the record; The Deli featured "Help Me" back in August. Worthy's working on the follow-up to Only A Dream now; he released the single "Is It Too Late" in October. Catch him and The Bends playing at Radio Cafe on November 19th, and check out the video for "Have It Your Way" below. - Will Sisskind
