A Deli Premiere: Eye For None release "End of Communication" LP on 01.18

Nashville power rockers Eye For None have worked around the clock getting their first album End of Communication ready for release. This debut disc, which drops on January 18th, contains a year's worth of material honed to a fine point, with tracks like "Love" throwing political jabs at the anti-immigration groups and "Things I Dream About" touching on identity and anxiety. Bandmates Kelly Hoppenjans, Steven Edwards, Chuck Stearns, Dylan Callahan, and Heather Miller each bring their own unique touch; Hoppenjans's voice and the band's cutthroat rhythm send shockwaves of energy on each track. Anyone who enjoys Paramore will like this album and the songwriting tact of Hoppenjans and Edwards; in fact, Halestorm engineer Jordan Logue brought his experience to this album, so fans of that group will also find a lot to enjoy in Eye For None's debut. Take a listen to "Smile", a featured song from the album, below; grab the full album when it's out. - Will Sisskind

Genre-benders Okey Dokey play Mercy Lounge on 01.25

As if the past several posts haven't given enough indication, January has presented the Nashville indie music connoisseur with plenty of shows to attend. Should you consider yourself such a sommelier of tunes, head down to Mercy Lounge on January 25th to hear psych-rock genre-benders Okey Dokey play some tracks from their upcoming album Tell All Your Friend (sic), which drops on March 29th. After touring throughout 2017, the band -- which consists of Aaron Martin and Johny Fisher -- spent last year writing and collaborating with fellow musicians and friends such as Nick Bockrath of Cage the Elephant and Liz Cooper to create what you'll hear on their upcoming sophomore album. Tell All Your Friend already has a few singles out; one of them, "When They Get Older", has a nice retro bop to it, and it features the funk touch of Rayland Baxter. Check out the music video for "When They Get Older" below. - Will Sisskind

Roots rocker Sarah Potenza plays upcoming album at The 5 Spot on 01.15

Maybe you know Sarah Potenza's name from Season 8 of NBC's The Voice, where she wowed Blake Shelton with her bold vocals. Maybe you've seen her around the Nashville scene, showing off her brassy songwriting skills on stage. Whatever the case may be, you should take note: She's coming back with a brand-new album called Road to Rome, which drops on March 8th, this year's International Women's Day. The album -- produced at the studio of Jordan Brooke Hamlin (known for her work with the Indigo Girls) -- takes inspiration from and pays homage to powerful female figures in music legend, such as Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, and Bette Midler. It's an album for all artists, but particularly for those who identify as women, and it comes on a day for celebrating their achievements as loud and as raucously as possible. 

If you want to hear tracks from Road to Rome before the album's release, Potenza will perform the new record cover-to-cover -- along with some old tracks -- at The 5 Spot on January 15th. And if you want to refamiliarize yourself with her music now, check out her music video for her 2016 single "Monster" below. - Will Sisskind

Superdrag's John Davis and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws reunite for new single

John Davis of Superdrag and The Lees of Memory runs a four-track cassette production label out of Nashville. He and Nada Surf's own Matthew Caws -- old pals from the scene -- happened to touch base last May after Caws wrapped up a tour in Music City. Their new release "We Are In The Wild And We Are Home", is the result of their hangout, and it emanates pure delight. Indian instruments phasing over a motorik bass and drums with Caws' and Davis's voices chiming lyrics of love and self-care makes this a must-play track for the beginning of 2019, a year which -- let's face it -- follows a few pretty down ones. Davis and Caws seem to have their eyes on something brighter for the next twelve months; even if it's something far out of reach, this song will make you feel like it's possible to catch it.

Take a listen to "We Are In The Wild And We Are Home" below; should you decide to purchase it, all proceeds from the single go to disaster relief organization Americares. Side note: The cover art for this single -- painted by Davis himself -- bears the title "Remember To Look For Beauty When Christmas Shopping (Especially Then)". - Will Sisskind
