Stream Paperhead’s ‘Chew’ Ahead of Feb. 17 Release

paperhead-620

One of our most anticipated records of 2017 drops this Friday, but you can stream Paperhead’s Chew a few days in advance, thanks to Hype Machine, below.  The long awaited followup to 2014’s Africa Avenue sees the young, local psych popsters continuing to explore their sound with an updated production quality that influenced by sweet ’60s pop melodies and the crunchy guitar riffs of the current San Francisco psych scene, dabbled with touches of twang and soul.  Chew is set to release on the Chicago based Trouble in Mind Records (Mikal Cronin, Ultimate Painting, Dick Diver), where their unique sound should fit right in.

You can continue your weekly struggle towards the weekend with an advance stream of Chew below, and mark your calendar to catch them in Nashville at Little Harpeth Brewery on Feb. 24.  They will follow that show up with an official album release party on March 4 at The Music Row Mansion.

TWiN - SDG

There are a truckload of cheap, stacked local shows happening this weekend. Seriously, if you’ve been bad about checking out new bands or eager to revisit some old favorites, it seems like just about every small room in town has something awesome going on for under $10, from indie to garage rock to hardcore to pop. Beyond that, there are some alt/early Valentine’s Day happenings (including a very special Punk Prom with a stacked Smiths cover supergroup), classic hip hop, a few touring favorites, and more, making this, once again, another weekend with something for just about everyone. Per usual, we’ve run down our top picks in our latest This Weekend in Nashville.

Catch Ron Gallo at Grimey’s & The High Watt This Weekend | New LP ‘Heavy Meta’ Out Now

ron-gallo-2016-620

If you’ve kept up with us for the past year, then you already understand our blog crush on Nashville (via Philadelphia) rocker Ron Gallo.  If you meet him on the street his chill vibes are warming, but when you see him on the stage his fuzzed out guitars, intermittent microphone shrieks, and all around energy are enough to drive fans into a frenzy.  Gallo is playing two shows this weekend in support of his fresh off the presses Heavy Meta, which dropped today, Feb. 3 via New West Records, including an free in-store warm up at Grimey’s at 6 p.m. on Friday and then a full blown release show at The High Watt on Saturday.  The High Watt show will also feature performances from two of our favorite local rock outfits Thelma And The Sleaze and Reality Something, and tickets for the 9 p.m. show are still available for only $10.

With the release upon us, you can start enjoying Heavy Meta on your favorite streaming sites; download a copy at iTunes, Amazon, or Bandcamp; or, probably your best bet, grab a copy at your local record store.  If you just absolutely need to listen right this second while you gather your credit card information, head below to check out the full stream, which premiered earlier this week on Noisey.
