Album officially out tomorrow;

Legend: J = Jury - OS = Open Submissions - W = Deli Writers - F = Fans

Thanks to all the jurors and the bands and the fans who helped us put together this list of artists. Please don't take our poll too seriously (but not even too lightly, as these are great new bands!), we see it as a fun, playful way to give exposure to deserving emerging local artists, and as an opportunity to keep our finger on the Nashville scene's pulse.

NYC artists on the rise: The Royal Chain open for The Bravey in the UK

Hey, do you remember The Bravery? They made "An Honest Mistake" back in 2005. But the New York-based band isn't erring with their choice of opener for their UK tour. Royal Chains are also NYC locals, so don't fret that you'll be missing them open for The Bravery across the pond...they'll totally be back soon. And when they are? You should be there. As a girl who longs for the shining era of garage rock revival in the early 2000's (yeah, all those "the" bands), Royal Chains make a return to the genre still feel fresh. Their new single "A Million Fires" captures the distorted guitar and gritty feel of 2003, but mixes it up with better production values and some smooth backing vocals. And some tinkly bells that still manage to rock... just because. Because why? Because who doesn't love rocking bells, that's why. The Royal Chains return to the states right after Valentine's day, which if you ask me, is better than a Whitman's sampler. - allison levin

Nicole Atkins CD review - see her live at Bowery on February 9

Nicole Atkins returns to the New York (and world) music scene with her long-awaited second album "Mondo Amore." Opening track "Vultures" presents a lyrical landscape riddled with fear and loathing. "Cry Cry Cry" emerges with a shuffling drum pattern, gospel backing vocal chorus and clean muscle shoals guitar work. "Hotel Plaster" returns to familiar crooner-core territory, as violins add previously unexpected textures. The slow passionate vocal performance is enhanced by a male voice duet, mixed just under Nicole's. "You Come To Me" is a straight ahead rocker, snare drum and reverberated guitar driven. Rising piano notes create an upward motion for Nicole's impressive pipes. "My Baby Don't Lie" recreates a classic down-home jug-band-on-the-back-porch feel that British blues rockers like Led Zepplin loved to emulate. The record then segues into more familiar sonic territory before returning to the original southern fried vibe. "This Is For Love" uses fiddling violins for maximum background effect, cleverly blending them into a country rock format, but it's "You Were The Devil" that delivers Nicole's most sensuous vocal performance on the album: inside a twangy western motif, the subject matter emphasizes the albums overall theme - love, loved - then lost. "War Is Hell" explores this emotional experience further. Nicole's vocals underscore exactly what she does best - the torch song. "Heavy Boots" effectively uses cathedral organ and piano to dramatically highlight this tale of leaden footwear. "The warriors are waiting outside for you on the street. The hungry virgin eyes with scorpions in their smile. They are no match for me." "The Tower" re-imagines Led Zepplin's "Dazed & Confused" minus the extended stoner jam (though live her band at points have gone even there) - there is a tasty guitar solo, though. This may also work as a break-up song. Nicole Atkins plays The Bowery Ballroom on February 9. - Dave Cromwell (photo by Lucia Holm)

AWOLNATION premieres video for "Sail"

Blame it on the... aliens? Aaron Bruno of AWOLNATION has a close encounter in the music video for his single "Sail", released days ago. The video also sports the updated mix of the song that will appear on his album Megalithic Symphony, due to make contact on March 15th.

If AWOLNATION's debut album is any indicator, you should be marking your calendars for Megalithic Symphony. Back From Earth, was a tasty mix of Electric 6, Mark Ronson, and UNKLE flavored tracks. Now if I could only get one of those space helmets...
