Dust From 1000 Years play Middle East w/ Horse Jumper of Love, Blue Smiley, Brittle Brian

Dust from 1000 Yrs are not trying to take themselves seriously. Despite their "serious" sound, which is at initially somber folk-influenced, they bring an attitude of practical joking to their group. From every album cover including a scrawled, messy font title, to their almost-vaporwave, intentionally off-putting social media, they are not trying with their image. However, this sense of humor offers a healthy counter to the band's usually slow and whiney music. With the release of DUST 2017, they push their joking one step further, with an album of entirely 80's synth-pop sounds. Still, there is a balance and individual statement made in this release. Even when the title of a track is called "Smoke Em Up" their is a melodic tone to the release which recalls the emotion of their earlier music. This new album may be silly, but it's also a way to watch a band that's always been a little funny enjoy being themselves. See them at the Middle East August 24th. -Allie Miller   

New Track: "Dog Walker" - Melon Painting

Mountain, the forthcoming release from Missoula transplant Cooper Hepburn, a.k.a. Melon Painting, is scheduled for arrival on October 1, courtesy of HOYA Recordings and Diet Pop. “Dog Walker” meanders in a loose but locked in folk groove, backend-anchored with a sprinkling of keys and guitar sprints. With a feel akin to Hello Shark, a semi-spoken, personal narrative anectdotally recalls before switching gears from a passive, sleepwalking recollection to a proactive push, with accompanying instrumental exclamations.

New folksy release ‘spring and summer demos’ by Sault is DIY at its finest

One consequence of music streaming is the over-saturation of the DIY scene with sloppy EPs recorded in bedrooms and basements that all end up sounding very much the same. But Sault’s spring and summer demos is not one of those records. Recorded by Nashville three-piece Sault, the EP travels between emo, folk, and indie rock in just four songs. Tracks like “socks” start off slowly, but eventually explode in an outpouring of emotion too raw for a conventional scene (a vocal tactic not too far off from Conor Oberst.) As a first release, this project is extremely promising and marks Sault as a force to be reckoned with on the local scene. - Lilly Milman


Bent Denim release ‘Diamond Jubilee’ EP + play The End 8.27

With the release of their EP Diamond Jubilee, Bent Denim has carved out a dreamy space for themselves in the world of indie pop. The new release has the same narrative drive as their 2015 LP, Romances You, but with more detached vocals and a hazier soundscape. There is a sobering honesty that comes across in these five tracks, which mostly focus on mortality and the human experience. However, ultimately, this is a record about space: considering that this band is equally based in Nashville, New York, and New Orleans, Bent Denim’s music fills in the space between these cities (quite literally, as the band members send each other tracks through the internet.) The group will be reconvening in Nashville to play a show at The End on August 27th. - Lilly Milman
