But beneath the gloss lies something more jarring and jagged, a raw vitality generated by the Nashville band’s buzzy rhythms and blistering guitar work. Fortified by the distinctly thoughtful songwriting of husband-and-wife duo Jared and Kristyn Corder, the result is an album that finds an unlikely power in irrepressible sweetness.

Alex Coba was the kind of kid that grew up taking naps in his mom’s guitar case. Music was all around him in the South Texas heat along the Rio Grande. He is proof that sometimes a meandering path and a penchant for trying things is the exact right recipe for a soulful songwriter to emerge as boundless as the landscape he grew up around. The Harlingen, Texas native now based in Houston is releasing his debut album, a literal lifetime in the making for the songwriter whose life story, while still in the making, is undeniable fodder for interesting, moving songs driven by heart and grounded in strong roots.

Ben Kweller at Shipping & Receiving

Indie-rock icon, Ben Kweller, has captured the hearts of fans and critics for 15 years. Through his schizophrenic approach to music making, constant touring, and a punk-rock refusal to be pigeonholed, Kweller, has built the kind of career that rolls on regardless of fads and trends. His genre-jumping catalog of five albums, four EPs and multiple singles, has sold over half a million copies worldwide. 

Kweller hit the world stage in the mid 90’s as the leader of the self-proclaimed ‘Sugar Metal’ band, Radish. A top 40 hit in the UK gave the band a cult following and landed Kweller on the cover of Kerrang! Magazine. All of this, plus a world tour opening for Faith No More, forced the 15-year-old Kweller to drop out of high school and never look back.

The Gray Havens centers around husband/wife Dave and Licia Radford. Since their beginning in 2013, their projects have been hailed as “an imaginative treatment of faith…[having] a visionary quality that’s both playful and enraptured.” They have a knack for creating a listening experience similar to paging through your favorite book, with richly textured compositions and multi-layered lyrics. Releasing their debut EP on NoiseTrade in 2013, and their first full-length album, Fire and Stone, in 2015, the duo has gained a steady following of listeners nationwide.

Their newest release, Ghost of a King, debuted at #3 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts, rewarding listeners with immersive soundscapes and lyrical imagination. From poetic – almost Shakespearean – imagery to grand epics fit for darkened concert halls, to pop music infused with loops and infectious beats, the album possesses a remarkable range. In the context of that refreshing variety, the album stays cohesive thanks to its exploration of the human condition of longing.

Today, The Gray Havens are making the most well-crafted music of their career. Their next highly anticipated full-length album is expected to release in 2018.

Toadies at Paper Tiger (San Antonio)

It’s been 26 years since the Toadies started playing rock music in Fort Worth, Texas. Through lineup changes, shelved albums, member departures, band break-ups, one-off reunions and full-on reformations, the Toadies are an act that has experienced nearly everything. After bursting onto the national scene in 1994 with their  reakthrough Rubberneck album, which begat their signature single “Possum Kingdom,” the successful follow-up single “Away” and the immense fan favorite “Tyler,” the Toadies returned to the studio in 1998 with the pressure of trying to match their first album’s success. That success didn’t translate to label support when the Toadies submitted their second album, Feeler. Perhaps aptly, things in general just went wrong. “We got approval for a record,” says Vaden Todd Lewis, “and somewhere in the process of handing over the masters to get mixed, it got unapproved. So we went back to the drawing board.” Eventually some of the Feeler tracks made it onto Hell Below/Stars Above—a sophomore offering that came seven years after Rubberneck. Disappointed and dejected, the band dissolved just a few months after that album’s release.

Described as “A British Icon in the making at the top of his game”‘Quiet Man’ is an intimate and emotional album that shows why Panes is one of the most critically acclaimed folk acts in the UK.

Roo Panes’ music is succinct, honest songwriting, from a place of deep personal expression, resonating with universal truths and values. His is a deep voice, one that sounds aged beyond its years, and yet, it’s telling of timeless stories, endless heartache and forever love. It asks that we all find the right way to see the world around us.

This community has allowed Liz to be a part of many magically haphazard nights, where the movers and shakers of the Nashville music world, such as Okey Dokey, Becca Mancari, Rayland Baxter, Desert Noises, Morning Teleportation, Erin Rae, Brittany Howard, Cage the Elephant, Michael Nau and many more converge to make music and art and lose track of time. Her latest album is a product of that pulsating energy in Nashville that has had some of the greatest influence in her work.

A cohesive collection of modern folk music, Secondhand Smoke asks provocative questions about how we become who we are, what and whom we love, and the growth, pain, and freedom that come with accepting that some answers might elude us forever.

Blac Rabbit Interstella Tour - Three Links
with 
Acid Carousel

Born and raised in ed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with.  Growing up in the mecca of hip hop culture, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. In high school they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles.  After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. Tired of working boring grocery store jobs, Amiri and Rah started performing Beatles covers on the NYC subway, earning some pocket change, slowly building a reputation around the city while also performing their original material in New York's best venues for up and coming acts.

Sego

Sego at The Continental Club Houston

“U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!”   Not what one would expect to hear chanted vehemently from the members of an indie rock band in 2019… But Sego seems to get off on doing things one wouldn’t expect from an LA indie band today. Being proficient at their instruments instead of relying on computer tracks to play their new album Sego Sucks live, recording said album in a church in far away Canada in the winter, thus committing to the deliberate notion of an album more than an amalgamation of 'laptop studio' singles.  And yes, chanting “USA, USA, USA” as the main reprise of a reflective tune about entitlement culture.  One must ask why?  Why take it there?  Or one may not ask and instead bounce and bop their way through each energetic turn, just happy to have their blood pump a little faster than the “everything chill all the time” pace that we’ve all become accustomed to.

Old Sea Brigade

Old Sea Brigade at RUINS

For as much as the music of Old Sea Brigade remains rooted in Americana, indie, country, rock, and ambient soundscapes, it blurs and breaks barriers, tossing and turning between analog cinematic flourishes and provocative lyricism based on hard-won wisdom. Amidst this mélange of textures, Atlanta-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cramer allows the emotion to resound loudest on his full-length debut, Ode To A Friend [Nettwerk].

When Jonathon Robert Linaberry needs a break from city life, he goes Upstate, near the Catskills, to renovate a little farmhouse he purchased a couple of years back. As he pours himself into his work, J.R. doesn’t think about texts, email, or even his music, which he performs solo under the moniker The Bones Of J.R. Jones. His only focus is the house.

“That’s been an amazing emotional outlet for me,” he says of his periodic retreats. “To kind of sustain myself after coming from the road and getting back into the grind of the city, to have this, for lack of a better term, Shangri-La.”

The Rustic San Antonio (4/25) | The Rustic Dallas (4/26) | The Rustic Houston (4/27)

Formed in 2017 in a bid to “have fun, make some cash & raise a little hell,” the boys have been doubling down on that mission statement since day one. Combining dense, smooth harmonies ala Midland and the Eagles, moody story telling reminiscent of Tom Waits or Blaze Foley, a dash of pop songwriting sheen courtesy of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers & all the rock n roll energy of the best Foo Fighters show, the Josephines are on a path all their own and invite everyone to join the ride.

Telekinesis | RUINS
w/ SONTALK 

No one ever talks about the fourth record. We’ve all heard plenty about the astonishing debut and the “difficult” sophomore release. But let’s pause for a moment to consider the role of album four in rock and roll history. A few key examples: Radiohead – Kid A, R.E.M. – Lifes Rich Pageant, Talking Heads – Remain in Light, Wilco – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, David Bowie – Hunky Dory … you see where we’re going with this. Album four is an opportunity for artists to reinvent, and frequently revitalize, themselves. The willingness to abandon familiar work habits and signature sounds can be risky, but it’s often the difference between a safe, predictable career and a bold transformation that signals the beginning (to quote another pretty amazing fourth LP) of a new age for artist and audience alike.

SOLD OUT: Matt Maeson: Bank On The Funeral Tour

Matt Maeson | Betcha

Centered on Maeson’s candid storytelling and gritty poetry, Bank On The Funeral takes its title from its closing track: a quietly hypnotic number written for a beloved uncle, who was murdered when Maeson was six-years-old. “He was a criminal when he was younger, but once he got himself together he’d go out and minister to the people he used to hang around with—the people the church would never try to reach—and then one of those guys ended up going crazy and killing him,” says Maeson. “What inspires me about him is how he’d go to the places no one else would go, and talk about the things no one else would talk about.”
