With a little Dylan inflection in his voice and a troubadour’s penchant for storytelling, Nashville’s own Woody Pines sounds just like the kind of musician you’d stumble across while walking down Music City’s Lower Broadway street. Pines represents both the vintage sounds of Nashville past and the vivacious energy of its music scene at the present. Having cut his teeth in traveling widely across the country, including with artists such as Old Crow Medicine Show‘s Gill Landry, Pines has taken a solid base of raw talent and refined it over the years, resulting in works like his upcoming Woody Pines LP.

Below you can stream the album cut “Little Stella Blue”, which has a particularly powerful story behind it.

Don’t let the title of Russian-born, New York City-based composer Svoy‘s latest outing, Symphony No. 1:  What Happened When I Was Asleep, fool you. Although symphonic elements are predominant throughout the recording, this isn’t anything one would file alongside Beethoven or Mozart in a CD shelf. Melding together experimental electronic, breakbeat, ambient, and neoclassical into a brainy whole, Svoy’s Symphony is a brooding and knotty piece of music, one whose serpentine flow evades easy comprehension.

Below you can stream “Waiting for You”, the sixth “movement” of this uncommon symphony.
