Quiet Hollers Release Video for Unexpected Cover

 Louisville indie alt rock/country 5-piece Quiet Hollers have been garnering some serious attention after their self-titled release late last month. Their blended 10-song concoction has hints of folk, post rock and sad bastard country with strong notes of personal insight and woe. "Quiet Hollers" is definitely one of those albums best listened to on long drives in your car... where it's ok to cry. 

But the guys offer more than introspective narratives and solid hooks. They have a great sense of humor.

In response to a request made during crowdfunding efforts, Quiet Hollers have released a cover video for Madonna's "Material Girl." And it is oddly amazing. Give it a try below and catch them 12.5 at The Basement. -Caroline Bowman

Daniel Romano brings his moody country to Mod Club tomorrow (11.11)

Did you happen to watch the Country Music Awards the other night? I will admit I flipped to it for a second... and I'm a bit confused because there wasn't any country music, not sure what you call that stuff. However there's an Ontario fella making his rounds these days that makes REAL country music. His name is Daniel Romano and he hails from Welland, Ontario. He used to play punk rock but now has settled on making old time western tunes. He has a number of releases including 2011's "Sleep Beneath the Willow," which has a very soothing folk feel to it. 2013's "Come Cry With Me" sounds like your grandparents' country music and before you turn your nose up just have a listen and enjoy the wonderful melodies - they might make you cry though. This year he released his latest album "If I've Only One Time Asking" and with this album he really comes into his own making the same old time country with a more original feel to it. Many of the songs seamlessly blend into the following track which makes for a very pleasureable listen. The best example of this is tracks 2 and 3 "Old Fires Die" and "Strange Faces". Both great tunes, definite highlights of the album. Daniel spends a lot of time touring through the USA but we're lucky enough to have him right here in Toronto tomorrow night at the Mod Club. Take it from a rocker... this is bad ass music. Enjoy. - Kris  Gies

Providence duo INFJ plays Machines With Magnets on 11.20

Providence duo INFJ calls its music "mom rock" and its January-released EP 's/t' provides the sublime consolation of that parent. Mostly Americana-twanged folk with a splendidly poppy number ("Best Laid Plans," streaming below), the five-song album gracefully explores such common feelings as longing and loneliness with compassion, Scott Thompson's patient guitars and Hayley Simmons' gliding voice providing angelic warmth. The creaky elegance of early Sharon Van Etten and Grizzly Bear is a possible influence on these songs but, largely due to Thompson's pining lyrics, they sound remarkably fresh.
