We are pleased to premiere “Wait Until Dawn” from Julian Jasper. Featured on the expanded edition of the singer-songwriter’s EP 2AM, Chinatown/I Don’t Mind, out May 5 on Misra Records. Laden with danceable rhythms and a mellow haze of late night vibes, the song at times recalls Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan while offering listeners something unmistakably of the now. The tune’s economical nature (it clocks in at just over three minutes) speaks volumes about Jasper’s ability to say what needs to be said and not a word more. There’s even a letter-perfect guitar solo that reminds us that that form isn’t entirely a thing of the past.

Back in 2015, Adrien Begrand described Moonsville Collective as having “undeniable chemistry to create rustic Americana that’s made to be heard in person, where the beer is flowing & the energy is palpable.” This much is still evident on their latest single, “LA County Line”.
On top of this, though, they’ve made some clear strides towards new sonic paths predating the release of their new EP, Moonsville II, as well. They bring things into a more modern soundscape this time around, focusing on smooth harmonies and consummate instrumentation married by a broader production.
The tune finds a sonic space tucked comfortably between artists like Old Crow Medicine Show while enjoying both the classic sentiment and more recent pop stylings of Avett Brothers balladry. It’s a relaxed, captivating alt-country song about finding your place outside of the bustle of city life and enjoying it.
Moonsville II releases April 21.
Austin’s Culture Wars is a young band about to release their debut EP and they sport a fully-formed, radio-ready sound that blends heavy chugging guitars with foot stomping electronic beats. Frontman Alex Dugan is a charismatic singer with a distinctive rock voice that could fill stadiums. Imagine the Prodigy blended with Aerosmith and you get close to what Culture Wars is all about. Today, we are bringing you the first single from the Culture Wars EP releasing June 9th. Entitled “Money (Gimmie, Gimmie), it’s anthemic slice of electrorock that serves as a statement of purpose for a young group seeking success and also grapples with identity issues. The song is instantly memorable as is Culture Wars.
The duo Ryanhood has been all about proudly exhibiting their scrapes and scars for the world to see. This much couldn’t be any clearer than on Yearbook, their latest album released earlier this year. Ryan Green and Cameron Hood, two of Tucson’s most well-regarded artists, take this general fact about their artistic output and set it against an anthemic backdrop in their music video for “Alright Tonight”.
Endorsed by Deer Tick’s own self-proclaimed “pissy curmudgeon when it comes to giving new bands a chance” John McCauley, Northampton’s LuxDeluxe are on the rise. Their music fits snugly into the indie Americana trend of artists like Lord Huron or Wilco, and they have become known for encapsulating a distinct space between laidback and electrifying at their live shows.
