Tennessee Surf Rock With Repeat Repeat

Repeat Repeat started its life as surf rock from high atop the Cumberland Plateau. East Nashville, Tenn. to be exact. As they get ready for their next album, titled Floral Canyon and tentatively set for a July release, the band is growing past the purely sunny sounds of their debut Bad Latitude, changes you can hear in the Field Session recorded with the Field Note Stenographers.

Interview-Daddy Issues

When I first heard Daddy Issues’ album, Can We Still Hang, I thought these would have been the girls I smoked cigarettes with in my high school bathroom. Their grungy and gritty realness not only transported me back to my teenage bedroom scattered with my angsty poetry and walls covered with my brother’s old CD longboxes, but their music still speaks to my inner nonconformist wild child of today.

Must See Aaron Lee Tasjan and Widow Pills

Aaron Lee Tasjan’s cover for his latest album, Silver Tears, may sum up the sound of his eclectic music taste well: a sterling gleam in a dusty, somber blue sky. Although this East Nashvillian has been in bands such as New York Dolls and Semi Precious Weapons, there is a quiet folk reverie to his boisterous roots that he has been exploring in his solo career.

Four silhouettes on a dark stage. A low strum of notes ensues, along with a bright, aggressive beat on drums. Two huge round lights suddenly barrage the stage with white, as if I've been transported to Warhol's Factory.

Show Review: Grace Potter at The Capitol Theatre

By Andrea Marlowe Seeing Grace Potter at the Cox Capitol Theatre for the second time was like watching the aftermath of her musical metamorphosis. On her solo debut, Midnight, she gives powerful vocals while suffusing her pop rock songs with Southern rock twang, funk, and energetic percussion. Parting from her
