Hailey Whitters releases video for new single "Ten Year Town"

The music industry can tear you up. If it does, you either get out, or you go all in. (In some cases, you throw caution to the wind, start your own label, and send hundreds of emails a day booking shows or hawking albums.) Hailey Whitters knows this all too well, as she chronicles in her new single "Ten Year Town". The song, which comes from her upcoming self-financed album The Dream, talks about her life in Nashville over the past decade as she's tried to make it in the music world, with every failed single, radio station rejection letter, and empty venue giving her the drive to keep going. "Ten Year Town" is a stripped-down and honest song about how raw trying to live creatively can make a person, but it also explores the idea that no matter how hard it gets, there's always a little bit of hope left over. Take a look at the video for "Ten Year Town" below, and stay tuned for the release of The Dream later this year. - Will Sisskind

Indianola releases B-movie homage video for new single "Too Good To Be True"

One of the toughest things to do when writing about classic music is figuring out where it falls on the genre scale. How do you classify artists like Roy Orbison or the Righteous Brothers, whose music falls under the catch-all AM radio species of "oldies"? Regardless, that's the kind of sound Indianola have emulated on their latest single "Too Good To Be True", although Mississippi-born songwriter Owen Beverly has always had a crooner-like bend to his music. As Indianola, Beverly will release his debut LP Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye in May, with "Too Good To Be True" leading the tracklist. The album will follow the song's style of taking from all different classic genres, from the crooner and doo-wop age of the Fifties to the psychedelic Sixties and the soft-rock Seventies. You can hear those influences mesh on "Too Good To Be True" in Beverly's voice, the haunting strings that sound like they come from a Mellotron, and the slowed-down drums that echo with the Spector-like sound. The video for "Too Good To Be True" pays homage to the B-movies of these eras by mashing scenes from horror films into a well-done montage. Take a look for yourself below, and don't miss Indianola when they return to Nashville to play the High Watt on May 2nd. - Will Sisskind





Beshken & CLAVVS to play Day 2 of Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, 03.16

FREE Eventm RSVP here! Info about Day One here!

For our upcoming Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, we are excited to get to feature the music of a couple of NYC locals. The electronic music Beshken makes is meditative and complex, weaving between digital and acoustic instruments with dreamlike results. His latest track, “Cursed”, picks its way between honey smooth synths and dissonant vocal effects, reflecting on the mental revolutions between sleep and insomnia. On the other end, while their lyrics too reflect on sleepless thoughts, the music of CLAVVS is rather lucid. The production on their most recent single “Devils I Know” places the vocals at the forefront of a hypnotic and unexpectedly baroque electronic backdrop. The Expo will be held on March 16th at the Chugging Monkey - listen to CLAVVS, Beshken and the other artists who will appear below. - Sunny Betz 





Indie pop artist Struan opens at The End on 03.14

Struan Shields -- who performs music on a first-name basis as Struan -- takes the stage to open for Mike Mains & the Branches at The End on March 14th. The indie pop artist released two singles over the course the past several months which have been raking in the Spotify listens. The first track "Better" brings on the synth-pop of the early 2010s which might give listeners hints of The Naked And Famous or YouTube retrowave artists like FM-84 or The Midnight. The latest track, called "Always", slows things down to a tempo fans of The 1975 or CHVRCHES might find familiar. Struan gets the indie pop formula right, and it'll be worth your while to see him execute it live. Take a listen to "Always" below. - Will Sisskind
