Chaser Eight: Reader's Pick for Best Emerging Alt Rock/Garage Act of 2016

Our reader's have spoken once again and New Haven's melodic alt-rock act, Chaser Eight, has emerged victorious as their pick for Best New England Emerging Alt-Rock/Garage Artist of 2016. Chaser Eight keeps things stripped down on their new release Been Lost Dreaming, while keeping their classic alt-edge that fans will expect.  Self described as "Joat Jett meets the Killers at a Foo Fighters show", the band finds a balance, incorporating those influences and injecting their own flavor, sometimes soulful, sometimes aggressive.  Check out chasereight.com for more info and hit the player below for their latest. -Brian Varneke

Grand Gesture releases new single, plays Mercury Lounge 3/17

Brooklyn-based Grand Gesture deals in strong, guitar-driven leads, with a healthy dose of psychedelic vibes, and 70’s jam band mixed in. “Straw In My Sock,” one of the band’s latest releases, is a nearly-two-and-a-half minute romp laden with the kind of guitar riffage your daddy used to play, but the tune’s chorus is so catchy we guarantee you’ll be humming along before the song’s end. You can check out Grand Gesture live at the Mercury Lounge 3/17 for their album release party, but in the meantime, sink your teeth into their single streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "If You Harden On The Inside" - Hezekiah Jones

Proceeds from “If You Harden On The Inside,” the new single from Hezekiah Jones, will benefit the Women’s Law Project. Paced by the bump of bass and snap of snare, the song delicately weaves, led by sunny stretches that counter the potential commentary of lines like the power play/greed of “What’s the point of having all the world? When your hands are so small” or the call to kindness of “If you harden on the inside, you’ll be easy to break.” While it may seem simple to get swept up in the recent reign of negativity, If You Harden On The Inside, with its inviting harmony and delicate sway, reminds us that the power of positivity remains.

New Music Video: "Talk to Me" - Kaytronalia

The acoustic quartet of Kaytronalia that includes Rebecca Zimmerman, Deb Gilmore (Busy Bee), Sage Forte, and Syd Schollenberger recently released a new song/video. “Talk to Me” simmers in a delicate, innately cohesive groove as the semi-hesitating vocals stick, while the candid/scenic footage provides unassuming imagery. It’s a simple, tightly woven track that sweeps one into the band’s slow-burning honesty.

Sour Bridges Go Down Smooth with their Eclectic Southern Bluegrass

Bluegrass acts in Austin can't help but veer into the unexpected. While Sour Bridges features a banjo, violin, and other tell-tale Bluegrass harbingers, they don't stay inside the traditional lines. With non-traditional themed songs like "Cocaine Lorraine" and "Midwife Crisis", Sour Bridges projects their 'Browngrass' which, which in their own words, "Is a little bit dirtier than Bluegrass". While the eclectic influences, like the Beatles and the Byrds, seem to blend seamlessly, its the live-wire energy of the quintet's live shows that leave their mark on listeners.  Its no surprise that Sour Bridges were the Austin voters pick for 'Best Emerging Roots/Songwriter Act' because although the band members come from the Pennsylvanie woods, Oklahoma plains, and Texas hills - their sound is uniquely Austin.
