Songwriter Nicole Jackson releases EP "Radio Silence"

You might pass a hundred singer-songwriters in the Music City every day, whether they're lawyers, cashiers, or even your best friend who has a secret diary which you don't know about. Often times, they're university students, as is the case with Nicole Jackson. The Portland-born singer-songwriter studies the music business at Belmont University, but she's also put out a collection of four tracks called Radio Silence. The EP showcases a talent with songwriting on par with indie up-and-comers like Snail Mail and big names like Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood. Tracks on Radio Silence range in intensity from barnstormer "Disappear" to post-punk tinged "Ghosts" to the ballad title track. It's a promising debut from one of the many aspiring musicians who walk among us. Take a listen to Radio Silence below. - Will Sisskind

Looms' "Eclipse" is an ode to emotional paralysis - live at Berlin 3.28

It’s hard not bask in the languid world of “Eclipse,” the first single off dream punk act Looms’ new record The Way Up. Written after a summer tour and a break up, frontman Sharif Mekawy’s lyrics about “wishing the moon would make it dark” embody a passive paralysis, the feeling of watching the hours tick by, a stupor from the reception of unexpected and unpleasant news. Looms’ interweaving guitars bolster this vibe, its impressive sundrenched noodling a sonic representation of the frustration that lies just below the surface. And while the Brooklyn four piece may have chosen to name this track after a solar eclipse, it feels just like a lazy afternoon in how it encapsulates the boring-to-death moments in between the events that define our lives. Give it a listen below, and catch Looms at Berlin on March 28th alongside Color Tongue, Monoculture, and Huh. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Liz Maney

Coaster "Be Who"

Coaster has released a new single, “Be Who” b/w “Power Tools”, last week. This is the DIY Rock of Matt Kissinger (vox/guitar), Seth Engel (guitar/vox), Dillon Kelley (bass), and Marcus Nuccio (drums, percussion).

These tracks were recorded back in August before Matt departed for LA, and most likely will be the band’s final release.

Weekend Warrior, March 15 - 17

Tonight, Boot & Saddle hosts a benefit for Erika Almirón, Democrat for City Council. The trio of Yarrow addresses the agitation and frustration over societal shortcomings and the divide that currently serves as the status quo. A noise-inflected, raw, post-punk approach creates a formidable tone, pulling you into the group’s chaotic vortex. However, within that bombarding storm of sound, a personal fire burns, and the fuzzy-friction of a heavy groove results. This evening, they will be joined by the cathartic outpouring of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine, a.k.a. Pinkwash, with Pancho Cuacuil completing the lineup. – Michael Colavita
