BloodOrange2019-620

Though hardly a new musical fixture, profound and genius English artist Dev Hynes has found immense critical acclaim for his latest, r&b and electronic drenched solo vehicle Blood Orange, particularly since the release of last year’s stunning fourth album Negro Swan, widely regarded as one of if not the best album of 2018.

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Hari The Band Unveil New Single “Numb” | See Them Saturday at The 5 Spot!

HariTheBand2019-620

What began as something of a bedroom recording vehicle for principal songwriter Taylor Lowrance, local shoegaze-y, dreamy, poppy, and folk-tinged indie outfit Hari The Band have steadily become a buzzworthy underground fixture in recent years, rounded out by Ben Crannell and Brennan Walsh, who Lowrance met while performing in other projects within the Nashville indie scene (most notably, Shy Guy).

After gaining traction with promising early tunes and frequent live outings around town, Hari released their debut EP, Daze in the Sun, last spring, earning critical praise and broadening their reach, increasingly becoming a must-see live act and fixture of frequent DIY and club show appearances all over town throughout last year.

As they gear up to release a highly-anticipated new EP, due out this summer via Cold Lunch Recordings, Hari are set to drop their first taste of new music tomorrow, Feb. 15 with their latest single “Numb” – however, you can hear it early with our exclusive premiere below! In typical Hari fashion, the tune gloriously fuses layered, etherial indie pop and shoegaze with a broader, driving and timeless indie rock pulse, adopting a more refined sonic clarity and mesmerizing quality that exceeds anything on their debut.

To celebrate their new single, Hari will perform this Saturday, Feb. 16 at The 5 Spot, along with Patzy and Cave Mode Shake; an inexpensive, local outing that should be a high priority on your weekend musical agenda. Head here for details about the show, then press play to hear Hari The Band’s stellar new jam “Numb” below!

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Hear Oginalii Strip Down “No Littering” and “Static” for OOKO Live Session

Oginalii-620

Buzzy local group Oginalii have seen their sound evolve from the stripped-down acoustic stylings of frontperson Emma Hoeflinger back in the project’s earliest days in 2013, to a hard to pin down, sludgy, hazy, psych-tinged, hard-hitting, genre and era spanning flavor of rock and roll across two EPs and a handful of songs, earning them a reputation as one of Nashville’s most essential underground rock fixtures. Filled out by guitarist Ryan Quarles, drummer Simon Knudtson, and bassist Emma Lambiase, Oginalii have, in recent years, become a breakout live staple both around down and beyond, and are gearing up in just a couple weeks to hit the road for a quick trek with rising WV outfit Hello June, before heading to SXSW in March.

Ahead of their new album, Cause and Affection, an electrifying, dynamic artistic leap forward for the band, co-produced by All Them Witches’ Ben McLeod and set to arrive April 5, it feels fitting that we exclusively premiere two special new tunes, “No Littering” and “Static,” which were recorded live and stripped down at OOKO Studio, channeling the more intimate vibe of the group’s acoustic beginnings (before they reappear on the album in all of their electric, face-melting glory). In their deconstructed format, the songs really showcase Hoeflinger’s powerful and earnest vocal delivery, and expert ability to craft nuanced and layered tunes at their core, weaving between genre conventions and building to soaring, gut-punching sonic highs.

Hear both “No Littering” and “Static” below, look out for more from Oginalii as they gear up to release their album this spring, and see them live both March 8 at The 5 Spot for Cold Lunch Recordings’ SXSW send off, then April 5 at The Basement for their album release show, along with Lacquer and Idle Bloom (tickets here)!
