Butthole kicks off Thelma & the Sleaze's documentary premiere on 01.13

Up and comers in Butthole open up for Thelma and the Sleaze's intra-city tour documentary about playing 30 shows in 29 days at a series of surprise locations across Nashville. Butthole is a goofy, psychedelic, fuzz rock outfit that doesn't take itself too seriously. Their tunes are a blend of charming, surfy, laid back Mac Demarco-esque attitude with just enough edge to be remiscent of female punk rockers from Patti Smith to Carrie Brownstein. The show, at Little Harpeth Brewing, starts at 9 PM on Friday night with a $10 cover that includes a limited edition Kandyland Vinyl.

Be Fixtures' 206th Facebook fan! See them live at Sunnyvale on 02.01

Facebook has gained such influence on our perception of the world, that finding a really good band when they only have a few hundred likes always feels very special. Enter Fixtures, a Brooklyn group with 204 - now 205! - Facebook likes. The quartet released their debut EP 'Experienced Fainters' in 2014, combining the earnest yet creative slack rock of Modest Mouse with the lighthearted pop of Violent Femmes. Following LP 'Watch Your Head,' out in November 2015, develops a more personal voice, blending in other influences from the '80s and '90s (we hear R.E.M. and XTC and The Cars among others), within a sound that's fuller and often also heavier. Track #3 'Gone Crazy' (streaming below) is the pop highlight of the record, an enthusiastic love song where everything works like clockwork. You can see Fixtures live at Sunnyvale on February 1st.

New Track: "Do Worry" - Marry Lattimore

Mary Lattimore tweeted yesterday, "Made a new kinda corny song today, very rough draft, very imperfect but from the heart. I'll prob hate it tomorrow!" Whether this is a demo or something that Lattimore becomes more comfortable with today as the final result, "Do Worry," which sounds like an ominous warning in this current, turbulent social/political climate, is juxtaposed by the serene composition that actually instills feelings of hope towards its conclusion. Or maybe that's just how we're interpreting it because we could use a bit of hope these days. Whatever it may be, it certainly doesn't sound corny to us. Mary Lattimore will be performing next in Philly on Tuesday, January 31 at Union Transfer supporting Parquet Courts.

New Track: "All In" (Feat. Cynthia G. Mason) - Sun Airway

Before 2016 ended, we were delighted by the news of Sun Airway's return after a four-year hiatus with his single "FOAM". And now, just barely into 2017, we are treated once again to the second sampling from his forthcoming LP, Heraldic Black Cherry, called "All In". The vibrant calm of Sun Airway's latest track also features backing vocals by Philly singer-songwriter Cynthia G. Mason.
