Soccery Mommy brings on Dream Wave and Motiongazer for 12.15 show at Mercy Lounge

Sophie Allison has taken Soccer Mommy far beyond Music City, but on 12.15, she'll come home for a show at Mercy Lounge to wrap up her fall tour. It'll act as the beginning of a little holiday siesta for the now world-famous songwriter before she takes off on a tour through Australia, plays a show in Japan, and traverses the western states this winter. For her Mercy Lounge show, Sophie has a couple of friends joining her on the bill. The first is Motiongazer, the experimental indie rock project of Soccer Mommy guitarist Julian Powell. The second is Dream Wave, the songwriting outlet of Kelton Young, who has collaborated with Sophie on many Soccer Mommy projects. The night at Mercy Lounge should be a fun one for anyone who's followed Sophie rise up through the Nashville scene. Take a listen to her latest single, "Henry/I'm On Fire", below. - Will Sisskind

High Tides' Intuitive Melody

High Tides, we know despite their relative mysteriousness in the internet realm, is the lo-fi, psychedelic, and highly captivating new project of Aeris Hennings, Aaron Diebold, and Xavier Bond. They explore a sonic niche relying heavily on guitar work, one that could easily be compared to indie rock greats like early Real Estate or Tennis. The group's instrumental work is complimented by a series of synth and lo-fi samples that might well work as spaceship noise in a sci-fi movie. Not all their work is so far out, however. Their earliest songs showcase acoustic fingerpicking interwoven with electric guitar work that creates an expansive atmosphere in contrast to close, crisp acoustic strings. There's no voice attributed to High Tides, but this only seems fitting. The group trusts their own sense of melody enough to let the instruments speak for themselves and the result is the creation of intimate arrangements that feel uniquely inuitive. High Tides is a band with work that predicts a fruitful and authentic future. Be sure to catch their next show with Dream Wave at Drkmttr on Thursday, May 25th.

Dream Wave translates raw feeling to sound on "Living for Moments of Beauty"

Living for Moments of Beauty is a scattered project, comprising of a couple dominant sounds organized in a stream-of-consciousness flow with no obvious rhyme or reason. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. The album reads like a smattering of bedroom ideas presented as they were conceived; it's a picture of a person at a certain time, free of pretense or pressure. The result is honest, to-the-point, and most importantly, an enjoyable listen. Ranging from guitar-centered soundscapes to Mac Demarco by way of The Strokes, Living for Moments of Beauty is one small taste of a large—and largely unnoticed, it seems—discography. Do some digging. You'll like what you uncover. -Austin Phy
