Rodan “Hat Factory ‘93” EP Tuesday, Nov 5 2019 

If you were of age in Louisville in the 90’s, you knew the band, Rodan. Even though they were only around a couple of years, they left an indelible mark on our local– and national– music scene. And thanks to a new EP, we can celebrate that legacy! Hat Factory ’93 consists of 5 tracks that were discovered in the archives of that particular studio in Baltimore. Even better? Proceeds from the EP will go to the Louisville chapter of Girls Rock! Check out the tracks (and photos) below…

Drift City asks the universe to “Show Me The Way” Tuesday, Nov 5 2019 

Thanks to Wax Fang’s Scott Carney for turning us on to the catchy new song, “Show Me The Way”, from the Louisville rock band Drift City. Formed in 2017 by Jason Rivers (guitar, vocals, synth) with Justin North (multi-instrumentalist, guitar, drums), and Rory Hanka (organ, keys, synth), their influences run the spectrum from Gram Parsons to Roxy Music to Radiohead and beyond. Their debut LP, “Mercurial Mirrors,” was recorded at La La Land studio by Anne Gauthier and is set for release in early 2020.

We asked Jason, who wrote the song, to tell us a bit about it. “The backstory to the song kind of changed over the course of its development as we practiced. I didn’t know exactly what I was writing about initially but kept honing it till I found what I believe my unconscious was trying to get out. This I think, ultimately was something kind of spiritual. Maybe that’s weird to say, but I was trying to ask the universe to help find the song. So, basically the song is somewhat metaphorical with life’s path, love, and pain, etc. And lastly, the line, “out of the storm, carry me on high”, I didn’t have until recoding the vocals with Anne at La La Land.”

We like this song a lot and are looking forward to hearing the full album!

Original sparkling Pop/Rock from Mad Luck Friday, Nov 1 2019 

Mad Luck is a pop/rock band that features Andi Ramser on vocals and songwriting and Sean Ewing on guitar and production with Chip Adams on Bass. If their new single “Treading Underwater” is any indication, there is much to look forward to in 2020 when their second full length album comes due!

Ramser says “I was simply enjoying the freedom of not fitting into any particular genre or sound. I wrote what was in my heart and mind about whatever was happening in my life in
that time and space. I’m pleased with the variation of style from one song to the next. We’re changing things up! The album will keep the listener guessing with the start of each track.”

Music to think about: Bendigo Fletcher’s “One by One by One” Thursday, Oct 31 2019 

After releasing their new EP Memory Fever, Bendigo Fletcher just dropped a new single called “One by One by One” on their Bandcamp page. 100% of profits generated on the page go towards the Kentucky National Land Trust (they started that initiative with the release of the last EP and it applies to the whole catalog). Ryan Anderson, the main songwriter, answered a few questions about the new song:

Where did the song come from?
Honestly, the song came from listening to some powerful stories and calls to action on my social media, and writing about it made me feel included in the fight. To me, the voices that I’m hearing from all around Kentucky sound more harmonious than ever in my lifetime as Election Day approaches, and the song came out of feeling included in the demand for more from our government. It seems like folks are talking more about justice for teachers and children, for coal miners and communities that have relied on the coal business, and for people left without access to healthcare after a lot of bad decision making by our current Governor’s office.

Reason for the quick release?
Like the stories I’ve heard recently that influenced my own feelings, maybe the song will reach an able voter who is considering staying home on November 5th to feel included and empowered to fight for change with their vote.

Political songs as a whole?
To me, a song with a political message is powerful in its ability to unify. If it does that, the imagery and situations discussed can transcend specific times and issues. At the end of the day, though, a song is a song, and every song has a place.

You can listen to the song here.

More great Louisville music: Aon Brasi “AtomAge” Wednesday, Oct 30 2019 

Aon Brasi is a Louisville musician who just debuted his new song “AtomAge” today! Here’s a little more about him and the new song:

I have been playing in punk bands around town for years. Most notably were Xerxes and a band I did with Ryan Patterson (Fotocrime, Coliseum) called Whips/Chains. He and Ben Sears are actually playing in the live band with me! This is my current endeavor and first go at “solo” music. It’s a relatively new project and up until now, I have played everything on each recording and recorded everything myself in my basement. This is all changing though as the band transforms into a live outfit.

AtomAge’ was recorded on Friday the 13th. It’s a song about love and acceptance; coming to terms with who you are and finding a partner who helps you feel validated throughout the journey.

Just in time for Halloween…”Creature” from The Instruction Friday, Oct 25 2019 

Louisville rockers The Instruction like a bit of darkness with their music. Their new song “Creature” appears on the album Monster Maker with an accompanying video. The official album release is this Saturday (Oct. 26th) at Zanzabar with The Sound Company and Dj Matt Anthony. It’s a Halloween Sock Hop/Costume Party!

Songwriter Blake Sakal: “The song and video portray ones battle with one’s self. The shadow self. The part of your personality you do not want to admit is there. The more self aware and conscious you become, the more ability you gain to control it. In order to truly become “a good person” or the best version of yourself, you must be willing and able to recognize your capacity for evil”.

Twenty First Century Fox deliver a spooky new video! Friday, Oct 25 2019 

Just in time for Halloween! Louisville noise-pop group Twenty First Century Fox has released their new video, Satanic Panic Part 2. The song is from their latest album release, New Energy.

The video was shot over two days in April and May. It depicts a picnic gone horribly wrong (or right) and devolves into a satanic ritual. According to band vocalist Miranda Cason, the song is a campy take on the duality and shadowy parts of the feminine as well as a celebration of self-expression and self love in the 21st Century. Don’t be scared. Check it out!

Louisville rockers Wombo premiere new video “Sad World” Friday, Oct 25 2019 

We were sad when The Debauchees broke up a few years ago. They made some really fun recordings for SonaBlast! Records and seemed to be on their way to bigger things. But with the demise of that band, a new band has emerged called Wombo, a three piece avant-pop/post punk band from Louisville featuring Sydney Chadwick who sings and plays bass, Cameron Lowe on guitar, and Joel Taylor on drums. Cameron and Sydney were in The Debauchees. They play around the ‘Ville now and then and are about to go on tour with White Reaper. Their second album is coming soon, too. Check out the first single from it “Sad World”.

From Wombo:

“The song “Sad World” is the single off of our upcoming 2nd album “Blossomlooksdownuponus” (Blossom Looks Down Upon Us) via Sophomore Lounge Records. The lyrics are about the importance of human touch and interaction when you are feeling out of touch with reality. The music video was a collaboration with Greg Sheppard who filmed and directed it. We had some loose ideas for what we wanted and he took those and molded it into something that reflects the song beautifully. It is being released this Friday while we’re on tour supporting White Reaper’s ‘You Deserve Love’ album release, joining them and The Nude Party up the east coast from Gainesville to Toronto. The dates run from October 24th through November 10th and will be our first tour on this scale.”
