Impose premieres the full stream of Shells‘ debut release New Bones:
In the six track EP, Shells communicates both the pensiveness and the peace – lyrics that have the edge, with calm tunes and a delicate voice that provide the hope. ‘Fragments’ is the tune that will draw you in with a lush orchestral movement at the beginning, segueing into an easy beat with words that are weary with hope.
Copperfox‘s new EP Haunts is out Friday! Songwriting Magazine premieres the full stream today:
“We think that the end result is something very special…Our personal favourite is the D’ark remix of ‘Feel In The Void,’ with the fresh take giving it a Princess Chelsea meets My Bloody Valentine vibe.”
Pageant‘s Endless Sun EP, available on November 13th on CD and digital formats, is streaming in full in advance of the release over at East of 8th. Click over to listen!
Justin Fallen and the Angels’ new EP The Rock and Roll Kids is out this Friday! Stream the full release at Bucket Full of Nails and pick up a copy in Austin at Hole in the Wall on Thursday:
Imagine Lou Reed thumbing a ride from the E Street Band, traveling from Lexington and 125th in Harlem to Texas, to catch Townes Van Zandt. Kissed by all three, Austin singer/songwriter Justin Fallen and his Angels affect the affability of Van Zandt, the largesse of Springsteen and grit of Reed on their new EP, The Rock & Roll Kids.
Scott Wesley’s EP is out next Friday! Stream the release and read the fantastic review at For The Country Record:
The lead single from the project (and its opening track) is ‘Heavy Rotation’, a swampy country-blues song with pop inflections and a hook that’s wonderfully catchy…The second single from the project is ‘My Love’, a darker, more subdued offering featuring aching pedal steel and fluttering mandolin, and a feel that’s more akin to Americana…‘Front Porch Light’, meanwhile, is a sweet little pop country ballad…Scott seems to be something of a romantic, and ‘Fell For It Again’ is a perfect example of that…‘That Girl’, meanwhile, is an upbeat, southern rock-esque foot-tapper about Scott’s soulmate – who he hasn’t met yet.
Bucket Full of Nails premieres the debut album from Nashville’s Miss Lauren Pratt, out on August 21st.
An astute storyteller, Pratt’s debut album, Days Like Tonight, is steeped in Southern comforts (“Days Like Tonight,” Delta Family” and “Josephine”), myth (“Sword in the Stone”) and memory (“One By One”). Influenced by the likes of James Taylor, Jennifer Knapp and Alison Krauss, Pratt forges her own distinct path, demonstrating her dynamic vocal range on “Tattoo Lady” and emotive power on buzzing closer “Difficult Year.” Equally at ease with a warbling coo as she is with stern condescension, Days Like Tonight announces Pratt as a voice that can capture any mood and a writer of close-knit tales.
