The Joy of Painting – Tender Age

a1235513848_10

The Joy of Painting - Tender Age

Joy of Painting makes with the pop/rock music. They’ve done a fine job of it with their prior releases and Tender Age just continues to move things forward. They upgraded their production value in the recordings themselves and the pushed their summer-fun vibe further along the path they’ve been traveling all along. The horns in “Good Mood” pretty much sum up that carefree vibe but please see “I’m Reelin’” and “Dontchu Wanna” for additional evidence.

Creature Comfort – Fox Tales

a1413404313_10

Creature Comfort - Fox Tales

Never underestimate the influence of alluring album art! I know nothing of Creature Comfort beyond the fact that they tagged themselves from Nashville, have eye catching album artwork and often create a bit of raucous upbeat, layered indie rock (sometimes it's not so raucous but it's still smart, enjoyable tunes). I suggest starting with "Friend of a Friend."

Tue Mommies – Mother Knows Best

Tue Mommies - Mother Knows Best

If you recall, I recently pointed you in the direction of the works of Jerry Campbell - an underrated local musician that, deservedly, got a tribute record from several of his friends. Now he's got a new project all his own entitled Tue Mommies. There's already a full-length and an EP ready for your consumption. I suggest starting with Fore!, one of my personal favorites of the batch thus far.

I've got a good feeling this won't be the last time we hear from Mr. Campbell.

Los Colognes – Working Together

Los Colognes - Working Together

Despite the fact that I just posted about their initial single, the full-length album from Los Colognes, Working Together, is now available Rachel Briggs really caught my eye - hence the immediate posting about it here. The album will be available May 28th but you might as well go ahead and order it now - look at it! It's gorgeous. Oh, and that preview track is pretty great too.

Tower Defense – “The Lottery”

Tower Defense - "The Lottery" (Rough)

It's not entirely mixed or mastered yet but this new track from Tower Defense is great. Double bass playing is not something you would likely immediately gravitate towards but it creates this amazing combo of post-rock angularity and totally dance-y grooves. I can't wait to hear more.

Apollo Up covering Mission of Burma

It's always nice when Apollo Up! gets back together for various shows and special undertakings. Such was the case with the BOSTON One Fund Fundraiser at Mercy Lounge last week when they covered five Mission of Burma songs. If you missed it, or just want to live it again, you can watch all five songs right here.

German Error Message – The Lifting

German Error Message - The Lifting

If you're at all familiar with the work of The Microphones, this quiet collection of songs from Murfreesboro's German Error Message will be a real treat to your ears. There is a tension and a authenticity that comes with the hushed approach. I'm happy to hear music of this vein coming from our area.

Los Colognes - "Working Together"

The first single from East Nashville's Los Colognes is a breezy little upbeat number. Hard not to enjoy it. Curious to hear more!
