Soccer Mommy Releases New Single "Out Worn," Plays Baby's All Right June 6th

Not only Soccer Mommy's name is striking - her music is really something else. Her new single "Out Worn" demonstrates that sweet combination of maturity and innocence, with a lot of lyrical depth but still not taking herself too seriously. Sophie Allison is comfortably grounded in her songs; the lo-fi vocal processing is soothing and the whole thing feels like a real musical treat. She's releasing a mini-album called "Collection," out August 4th on Fat Possum after a string of self-releases. Soccer Mommy is on tour with Slow Dancer this summer; catch her live at Baby's (June 6th) and Mercury Lounge (June 7th). - Geena Kloeppel

New Shelf Life LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Scotty Leitch, a.k.a. Shelf Life, must never stop working, because we blinked and a new album, Bark, has arrived. Leitch continues to create mindful, cathartic melodies, incorporating experimental threads, which provide surprises around the otherwise cozy lo-fi corners. When those pressure-releasing, daydream-inducing soundscapes receive a temporary jolt to the system, the trajectory shifts. Initially, the warmth of simplicity will welcome you, but unpacking those lyrical layers and musical plots twists will make one want to dig deeper within the familiar framework. 


Dogheart Drop 'Family Hair' Today, Release Show Tonight

Dogheart haven't really taken a break since Real Mood came out almost a year ago to the day. The six track EP was a display on Dogheart's part of the maturity their sound has reached, leading up to today's release of their newest full length Family Hair.

Recorded on a Tascam 8-track in various spots around the city, Family Hair shows Dogheart executing the mellow garage rock they do best while at times, embracing a Beach Fossils and Real Estate type of haze. Album opener "Puzzled" kicks things off with a quick and catchy pace, while "Wooden Shrine" chills things out a bit. Tracks of all tempos and for all moods can be found on Family Hair, which can be streamed below.

After getting acquainted with the new Dogheart tracks, join the band along with The Woolen Men at Bunk Bar tonight for the album release show. Word is they'll be giving free haircuts until midnight, just in case you're in need of one.

Mouth Reader's Fuzzy Psychedelia

Mouth Reader takes a hybrid approach to constructing their sonic niche. They harness the timbre of fuzz rock classics like Dinosaur Jr. to create massive sounding psychedelic power ballads reminiscent of slow-moving but powerful shoegaze bands like Slowdive. The percussion is big and reverby and the vocals are belligerent in their tone, making for a band that sits perfectly in the dive and basement venues of Nashville and Murfreesboro. Their work is tastefully lo-fi, with production developed enough to be accessible, but carrying the kind of DIY nature that makes you wish you had made the songs yourself. Be sure to catch their next show on June 6th at Ddrkmttr.
