Saint Pé's "Fixed Focus"

Black Lips guitarist Ian Saint Pé released a solo album this month utilizing the kind of punk and garage influences that provided his parent band acclaim. Fixed Focus is twelve tracks of jangly, distorted guitars, driving rhythms, and a kind of belligerent vocal performance that instantly conjures indie rock talk-singers like Kurt Vile. The album offers a variety of song constructions, from the slower, melodic, 90s alt rock style of “As of Late” to the rapid and forceful punk aesthetic of “Spun and Spurn,” Saint Pé works within the sonic limitations of his own musical tradition to craft a collection of songs that pushes its boundaries.

Goodbye June Releases "Fear of Jesus" Ahead of New Album

Goodbye June’s newest single “Fear of Jesus” is a nostalgic reflection on childhood and the progression of identity. It’s a number that glides along at an easy pace, glistening guitars creating an entire atmosphere around its shuffle drums. The band being originally formed after the death of lead guitarist Tyler Baker’s brother, the song reminisces about the group’s early religious upbringing: “I used to fear Jesus back then, and Momma used to hold my hand / and now I just run” Landon Milbourn croons in the chorus, comparing potentially destructive new coping methods to old ones. The group’s forthcoming album, Magic Valley, is set to be their most passionate effort yet. Be sure to make it to their release show on May 5th at The Basement East.

Sundaes Releases New Track "Smoke Signals"

Sundaes offers a rendition of early oughts’ indie rock that proves a breath of fresh air for the broader independent music scene. The second new track “Smoke Signals” off their upcoming EP is no exception. Reminiscent of greats like The Strokes or The New Pornographers, it’s a guitar-heavy number with a driving rhythm and laid-back, meandering vocal melody that sticks to the brain. The new work impressively recycles the sonic traits of its influences while remaining fresh and relevant in its conceptual undertakings. Stay tuned for more details on their newest effort and upcoming shows.

Jessie Early's Experimental "Wild Honey"

Jessie Early, a Nashville native and singer-songwriter took a different production route than most of her counterparts on her debut EP, Wild Honey. Two years into the project and unsatisfied with the way the songs were turning out, she began collaborating with producer Jeremy Larson to take the tracks in a different direction. What emerged then, was a unique blend of acoustic and ballad heavy singer-songwriter characteristics and 80s style electronic percussion and synth production. Her tender vocals compliment the expansive sonic environment of the instrumentation. “Living On Your Love” is a perfect example of this unique trait. The structure of the song along with the electronic drum fills and bass-heavy frequency proves reminiscent of Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel. With a debut EP as bold and experimental as this, it’s easy to be excited for what’s to come next from Early.
