Reality Something Releases Debut EP

 What's that? You love flannel, Doc Martens and cut-and-paste zines? And your heart has been yearning for a local female-fronted acid soft grunge band? Dude, us too, and we've found everything we wanted and more in pastel punk rockers Reality Something.

Keeping it raw, the Nashville three-piece puts their own spin on 90s rock with head-noddable rhythms, growling guitar and tender vocals.  And with a debut EP this strong, we can only imagine what's next.

Check out the EP below, and catch Reality Something live 12.1 at ACME for No Country for New Nashville's showcase.

Songs 2 Dance 2 Release Cassette Single

 Honestly, we don't know what's going on with this band. They have a scarce online following. Their music is a big, loud collision of sludge rock and glam metal. They sing about ridiculous pop culture topics. And they're awesome.

 So awesome, in fact, that we wouldn't be surprised if Songs 2 Dance 2 end up with some kind of underground cult following, which we will gladly be a part of.

The Nashville-based 5-piece recently released a cassette with their latest single "Tinder (Swipe Right)," and a B-side "Daddy Issues." The lyrics are brash, and maybe a bit offensive, but we have a feeling Songs 2 Dance 2 know that.

Hear the single below, and see them live at their cassette release party 10.23 at fooBAR with Oli Endless and the Possibilities, Doctor Jungle Cat and Terrible. -Caroline Bowman

Brave Town Releases EP

Since they won our Band of the Month title last year, we've been keeping tabs on indie/alt rockers Brave Town. Yesterday the guys dropped an EP, and we're already singing along.

Brimming with melodic guitar riffs, smooth, youthful vocals and tasteful percussion,  the 4-song release shows the sunny side of alternative rock. With this EP, Brave Town achieve the delicate balance between deliberate and organic, and find a natural middle ground among the quartet's range of influences. The opening track "Denim" is vibrant and danceable, while "Is It Worth It" takes the acoustic route to highlight encouraging and uplifting lyrics.

The Brave Town EP is the perfect thing to listen to if you're feeling down. Or happy. Or getting ready to conquer the day. Or really any time at all.

Give it a listen here, and don't miss Brave Town's release show at The High Watt this Friday with Corey Kilgannon and Fleurie. -Caroline Bowman

Fun Fact @ The Cameron House

Fun Fact is what it is, and that is, in fact, some serious groove and lots of fun. Smashing together a super tight funk with some catchy pop melodies and blues-rock chops. Sprinkle some jazz over top, and this three piece really rips out some great high energy party tunage. With their collection of songs under the moniker “mmm...”, they turn up the bass on 5 tracks of jam and really have fun with it. Showing their prowess for time changes on Mayor Rob Ford, while the fuzzed out guitars all ring and chime in time with the bouncing bass and nearly out-of-control drumming. Morning High introduces some mellow saxophone, and really lays it out smooth, a beautiful song that would fit on anyone’s summertime playlist. More Than This, brings a raw guitar lick, and fills every nook and cranny with something to keep your attention; tight fills, slow builds or some smooth jazz chords. Mary Jane has a ska-vibe to it, with attitude to spare. Melodious Vibes drives the whole thing down, and ties it together with a nice little bow, and more technical musicians flexing, just to remind you these guys can really play. All in all, Fun Fact threw together a solid funk-rock record, with some real good musical talent. Check them out at Cameron House, 09/24. - Cody Wright
