Boom Forest explores all different faces of electronica and folk on "Post Knight Errant"

Post Knight Errant, the latest from ex-Wisconsinite John Paul Roney's Boom Forest project, explores a range of folk and electronica influences, deftly using the natural ebb and flow of that exploration to cover the entire spectrum of emotional experience. There's a current of tenderness running through the album, but it proves to be tonally versatile and adapts to the highs and lows from song to song and within a single track. It's a polished effort, and you ought to give the video a watch below and then go check out the entire album. -Austin Phy

Brooklyn's Goldfeather premieres poignant 'Spilled Milk' off upcoming debut LP

It doesn’t seem too often that a band today tackles the dissolution not of a romance but of a friendship. That is just what Brooklyn self-described “folk music band meets ensemble” Goldfeather does, however, on “Spilled Milk” (streaming below), the bluegrass-girded lead single off its forthcoming debut LP ‘Patchwork Quilt.’ Starting with choral swells that perhaps lament the story of friends come and gone that follows, the poignant (even in its title) track is striking and laudable in its potentially underused subject matter: the aching absence of a one-time confidante. ‘Patchwork Quilt’ is scheduled for a September 2016 release, and Goldfeather is scheduled to play Park Slope's Barbes on June 9th. – Zach Weg

It's the mid-2000s again and I love it: Ghostfinger, How I Became the Bomb, and Lone Official at the Exit/In tonight

I think the cancellation of Nashville (the show, not the city itself) got a lot of people thinking about where Nashville (the city itself, not the show) is, has been, and is going. We're not gonna get too think-piecey on you here, but recent events like that have proven that time may in fact be a circle. There's no prime time TV dedicated to our lovely city, sounds from The Features and Character are still electrifying the ground around the Beast from their show last night, and if you get yourself down to the Exit/In tonight, you can catch yourself yet another piece of bona fide Old Nashville vibiness with Ghostfinger, How I Became the Bomb, and Lone Official.

We're leaning pretty heavy on the throwback jokes here, but make no mistake—these are all bands that, despite various periods of silence and an unfortunate spot on the It City sidelines considering their role in building up that rep, were here before here was a place to be and they've all stuck it out. So go for the nostalgia. Or go to show respect to the old guard. Or go because it's a stacked bill of genuinely great local bands. Whatever your motive is, you can't go wrong. -Austin Phy
