We Own This Town: Volume 62

wott_62_blog

Another quality dispatch (if I may say so myself) from the bottomless well of goodness that is the Nashville rock / electronic / indie scene. There’s probably a better name for that but it’s all I’ve got at the moment. Enjoy.

We Own This Town: Volume 61

wott_61_blog

Now in our sixty first volume, is it safe to say that Nashville can be known for well more than just Music Row Country Crap? As you can hear, we’re chock full of quality indie, rock, garage, post-rock, absurdity and Quality Country. Just listen, you’ll get it.

Volume 60: 2012 Retrospective

wott_60_blog

Let’s get two things out of the way. First, I realize it’s late into January 2013 and, thus, a compilation regarding music from 2012 seems a bit behind schedule. This is undebatable. Secondly, it’s dishonest, disingenuous and distasteful to call this a ‘Best Of’ as I have in years past. There’s just far too much music coming out of our fair region to be able to put an entire year’s worth of it into a single, listenable, stream. With that in mind, we’re calling this a ’2012 Retrospective’ – there’s some serious oversights and questionable choices but it represents a portion of the last year. That’s all we’re going for here.

Excuses and preambles aside, I think it’s a fine hour and a half listen. My apologies to all the bands that were left out (JEFF, Reid Magette, Richie, Turbo Fruits, Wild Cub, Umbrella Tree, Ultras S/C, get better, Anchor Thieves, Calicocat, Century Club, Chancellor Warhol, Cherub, Conestyle, Mom&Dad, Shaky Voices, Tower Defense, etc. etc.) but I think you’ll find those that were included to be a fair representation of the diversity of Nashville.

2013 and beyond is only going to get crazier in terms of amount of content. This is a great problem to have.

We Own This Town: Volume 59

58

What’s that? Another edition of the podcast in less than a week? Well, I couldn’t rightly leave up a Christmas themed edition past Christmas, could I? Plus, there were a few more gems released in December that needed to be put into the WOTT pipeline, proper. New music never stops I suppose!

Enjoy the final 2012 edition of the podcast.

We Own This Town: Volume 58 (Christmas Edition)

58

After immersing myself in that Partytown Hospital record I decided to browse around Bandcamp and find some other eclectic Nashville Christmas music. In doing so, I unearthed the best Christmas present I could possibly bestow to the Nashville music scene – David Argyle Thacker’s The Mouth Trumpet Christmas Album. It is exactly what you’d think it is and it delivers big time.

From there, I decided I might as well just throw together a Christmas themed edition of the podcast because, why not? So, with that in mind, dive into this Merry Christmas compilation! I’ve actually got more Christmas related items to share so come back later if this doesn’t satisfy you.

We Own This Town: Volume 57

A solid thirty minutes of some of the latest and greatest from our fine city. This edition of the podcast certainly seems to lean more on the electronic based side of things but there’s plenty of rock and a dash of country in there for ya too.

We Own This Town: Volume 55

We continue to hurdle forward into a myriad of greatness spilling out of all corners of Nashville. I often laud how diverse the musical offerings of our town are and this edition of the podcast certainly pushes that idea even further. Hip-Hop, Pure Pop, Retro Soul, Psych Jams and Heavy Rock all blending together into an excellent 34 minutes of your time. Spread the word.

We Own This Town: Volume 54

Is there something in the air? Is Nashville honestly charging forward into the next level of being? Regardless of the press calling this place the Next Best Thing, it seems that we’re definitely in a Boom Period. I am still pleasantly shocked at how much great music is available for these podcasts and it only seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. There’s a little something for everyone on this edition of the podcast – and by Everyone I mean people that enjoy rock, pop, dance-y tunes, hip-hop, funk, acoustic introspective and lush arrangements. That covers just about everyone.
