Amy Darling's debut EP is a reminder to everyone that women are slaying in rock'n'roll

 Can someone please put more rock'n'roll ladies on our radar? Thanks. I'll start you off- with Amy Darling's debut EP Rock'n'Roll Woman, a four-song exposition that fuses your favorite classic rockabilly textures (Jackson Browne, Steppenwolf, a dusty saloon...) with a heap of female assertion and power. The title track is the edgiest of the four, but the slightly slower "Flip the Bird" is just as sonically stunning, if not even a little more interesting. My only qualm about the record is its length: if only there were more songs! Looking forward to a full length in the future! Catch Amy Darling's EP release show on 9/5 at American Legion Post 82. -Geena Kloeppel


Jon Worthy and The Bends infuse rock with honesty on "Help Me"

 "Help Me" is the existential rock jam you've been waiting for. It's the end of summer, and, let's face it, the hot August weather makes us all wonder what the heck we're doing and where on earth time went. Jon Worthy perfectly articulates the existential dread many a millennial seems to experience these days. Who needs a mid-life crisis when you can have a quarter-life crisis, right? With rawness and honesty, Jon Worthy tells that story, and listening to him sing it will make you feel just a little less alone in your own anxieties. Catch him and the band live at the Springwater on 9/5. -Geena Kloeppel



Edan Archer hits a tattoo parlor in new music video "Bad Imitation Of Something Good"

 Folks- you're in for a wild ride in Edan Archer's new music video, "Bad Imitation Of Something Good." The song is a light-hearted folk/rock song with crunchy guitar riffs and a double-clap drum rhythm, but it's the video that really shines. Though filmed entirely on an iPhone, according to the press release, this visual is far more stunning than you might imagine. Archer hits a diner, an arcade and a tattoo parlor (don't worry, all the tattoos in the video are temporary). "You want a good woman by your side / who puts her toothpaste cap on tight" sings Archer in the chorus, and honestly, it makes me want to hit the town with her even more. Edan Archer plays the Rhinestone Cabaret on 8/28. -Geena Kloeppel



"No More Dancing" is a sweetly melancholic Americana tune by Five Islands

"No more dancing in the evening / you are free, no longer mine" is one of many bittersweet images in Five Islands' new single "No More Dancing." A fiddle skillfully weaves in between lyrics like a third singer or a memory, threading the different sections of the song together. The whole thing makes you wanna sit back, reminisce and let out a little sigh. Be sure to catch Five Islands when they play the Local on 8/19. -Geena Kloeppel
