We Own This Town: Volume 88

One would think that Summer would signal a lighter load of releases but the opposite seems to be the case as lots of great, bigger name, albums are coming down the pipe. This Volume of the podcast covers a handful of the larger titles and makes sure to mix in a few new-comers to your ears.

  • Steelism – Chartreuse
  • TRISTEN – Glass Jar
  • Los Colognes – Unspoken
  • NORM – Another Town
  • Kid Freud – Late (Lioness)
  • Woodsplitter – Song for Driving
  • Hammock – Things of Beauty Burn

Volume 87


I’ve been living in New York for the past four years but have managed to keep up with the Nashville music scene during that time and continued to churn out these podcasts. I’ve never felt a period of time where I wasn’t impressed by the volume and diversity of great music the city has to offer. I look forward to many more editions of continued greatness, such as this one.

  • Hudson McNeese – main menu
  • Phantom Farmer – Cross Town Kids
  • Jensen Sportag – Levitation Dream
  • Penicillin Baby – Who Cares
  • Steelism – Eno Nothing
  • Savoy Motel – Western Version Boogie
  • BRiLeY – Prolly So
  • Kelsey Kopecky – I Don’t Know
  • Clear Plastic Masks – Take a Little Drag

Volume 84


Let’s call it fundamentals. A WOTT podcast should consist of a variety of music showcasing the Nashville local music scene but keep it under the 40 minute mark. This volume includes a heavy dose of indie rock, keyboard pop, grunge rock, traditional country and desert psych rock – clocking in at 34 minutes. Enjoy.

  • R Stevie Moore + Jason Falkner – I Love Us, We Love Me.
  • Idle Bloom – Diamond Mind
  • Daddy Issues – In Your Head
  • Fluorescent Half Dome – Palace Walls
  • Gentleman Divers – The Pirate & The Doctor

Volume 82


Here’s Part Two of the Special Edition WOTT podcast with Apollo Up discussing their recently reissued album, Chariots of Fire.

This final segment with Au covers the second half of the album as well as the release and aftermath from the album. It’s the opposite of a limp funk pastiche.

Many thanks to Ryan Ervin for hosting the band and Jeremy Ferguson for lending his studio Battle Tapes to record it.

Volume 81


Trying something a little different with this edition of the podcast. I invited the members of Apollo Up to sit down and discuss the writing, recording and aftermath behind their recently re-issued album, Chariots of Fire.

Full disclosure, my label yk records released the new vinyl edition of the record so I’m clearly biased in terms of interest levels around this kind of discussion. Regardless, I hope to expand this kind of talk to other bands outside of my own sphere.

This is part one of two, wherein the band discusses the recording of the album and breaks down each song on Side A. Many thanks to Ryan Ervin for hosting the band and Jeremy Ferguson for lending his studio Battle Tapes to record it.

Volume 80


In lieu of a Best Of podcast, I wanted to commemorate the 80th volume of the podcast with a guest curator; an undertaking there will be plenty more of in the future. So, I invited Olivia Scibelli to curate the entirety of the episodes programming. Olivia is best known for her work in Fancy Tramp, Idle Bloom and Husband Stitch, not to mention her involvement in various undertakings like Tennessee Rock Camp. Her work is often explosive and visceral (some bands more than others) but manages to maintain a level of accessibility.

Her selections are a great peek inside a world of Nashville music that I, personally, was not very familiar with. From the growling Devaga Bike to the barking Chunk to the gentle Lawndry, there’s a bit of everything in here.

Many thanks to Olivia for putting this together and allowing We Own This Town to feature a lot of artists we’ve missed previously.

  1. Husband Stitch – Yourself, Under the Microscope
  2. Negra – Want It
  3. Devaga Bike – Horny Math
  4. Watcher – Chunk
  5. Lean – Blooming
  6. Lawndry – Naomi
  7. Sallow – Erase You
  8. Modern Convenience – Fuck Off
  9. Soccer Mommy – 3 am at a party
  10. Gnarwhal – Have Fun Tomorrow From Ozzy_Stella
