Honey Locust

Honey Locust Release Live 7"

Honey Locust just put out a 7" live recording of their show at Exit/In back in August on Wild Kindness Records. This is a limited edition release of only 50 hand-lathed albums consisting of two new tracks, and come with a download for the rest of that evening's set. “God Bless the Blues” is Side A; its heavy with piano and pounds through a few tempo changes, and drives home the fact that we can always rely on Honey Locust for a good woe-is-me anthem. This would be a great purchase for vinyl aficionados, independent music supporters, or Honey Locust fans that need something to tide them over as the band holes up in the studio for the winter. –Terra James-Jura


Album Review: Honey Locust "The Great Southern Brood"

I picked up a copy of "The Great Southern Brood," the debut album by Honey Locust at their release show at the Stone Fox on the last day of February. Shortly thereafter, Nashville froze. By "froze," I mean “experienced mild ice cover,” which was still enough to shut down the city and keep everyone inside. It was also enough to coat every tree branch in ice, which I had the privilege of seeing in the noon sun as I risked the roads. And by "risk," I mean “drove on without incident.” Navigating the peculiar gray-on-gray, hill-after-ice-ensconced-hill was just as surreal as listening to “The Great Southern Brood.” Click HERE for a full review of this album. –Terra James-Jura


Honey Locust Release Video for "Honey Pot"

Anyone who enjoys Horsefeathers but wishes that they took after OMD a little more in the vocal department ought to enjoy this video by Honey Locust. “Honey Pot” will be the first track of their upcoming album, “The Great Southern Brood," due to be released this fall. It brings me great joy to know there are kids out there producing such rich, emotionally intelligent music, and I hope the album delivers the same moody bite as this track. They hit the Basement this Monday night (10/21) with Frontier Ruckus. -Terra James-Jura

Culture Cringe release “Girls Night Out” @ 3 Brothers, 5/11

There’s a ton of great stuff coming up this Friday that we’d like to see (including Honey Locust’s EP release at The High Watt, The Jompson Brothers and Modoc at 12th & Porter and Andrew Combs at The Basement), but this is a must: Culture Cringe, a Murfreesboro media outlet that emulates Third Man Records in that it releases local artists’ projects, including music and film, in really badass ways, is celebrating their first release at 3 Brothers in Murfreesboro. It’s the film “Girls Night Out,” which has already made an appearance at The 5 Spot and is styled after the ’80s slasher genre. Though it won’t be screened at 3 Brothers since it’s an all-ages event, it will be sold – on VHS. Copies are limited, blood red copies even more so, so get there early and expect giveaways and weird stuff. Kelly Kerr & the Distractions and Epic Ditch will be playing. 8 p.m.

Click here to see a Murfreesboro Pulse interview with three of the four faces of Culture Cringe and find out more about the film, the release and what these guys do.
