Girl Skin's music is a long, strange trip, plays Rockwood Music Hall 4.7

Sid Simons, the leader of Brooklyn freak folk collective Girl Skin, embodies the spirit of a wandering musician in a contemporary context. Originally of Portland, Oregon (with stints in Australia and Shanghai prior to settling in New York), Simons makes it immediately clear that he has channeled his long, strange trip into the group’s sonic output; the band's last single “Bite Real Hard” prominently features acoustic guitars against mandolin accents and an echoey, sliding voice. Before getting too dedicated to a folksy, Americana sound, however, “Bite” becomes electric, drone-laden shredding emerging from the woodwork as Simon repeats, “everything I know, I have from you.” It’s a distinctly modern twist on the folk of yesteryear, reflecting Girl Skin’s ability to blend both old and new styles into a cohesive, instantly classic output.

Girl Skin will head south to SXSW next month, but they’ll be back at Rockwood Music Hall on April 7th. In the meantime, go for a walkabout and watch the video for “Bite Real Hard.” -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Andy DeLuca

A Deli Premiere: China's “And Then Nothing Happened”

China's newest single “And Then Nothing Happened” has the classic markers of a good country song: the story-telling, the clever lines, and twang all up in their guitars. Vocalist Michael James Tapscott has more of a Jeff Tweedy style than a true country boy, but we like that. The title track off their new album has lines like: “I’m nothing without my baby/and there’s nothing for me after last call.” Good ol’ fashioned Americana values. Overall, their album has a gentle Tom Petty feeling to it (check out track “Crossing the Ohio”). It’s full of lovely harmonies and everytime that sexy pedal steel touches a song it’s a fine moment indeed. How to summarize the album? To steal a quote from the band, they “...are a bunch of beautiful losers caught in a freeze frame hovering somewhere between mundanity and epiphany.” Give these losers a listen here, see them tonight at Papermill Creek Saloon, and catch them locally when they’re back from their West Coast Tour. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Scott Mulvahill hits NPR's Tiny Desk; plays Ryman Auditorium 03.17

Armed with his trusty upright bass, singer-songwriter Scott Mulvahill hit up NPR's Tiny Desk to play a few songs for the Internet. Having performed for years with Ricky Scaggs and rising to become one of Nashville's most accomplished bassists, Mulvahill earned the spotlight as he performed fan favorites like 2016's "Begin Againers". Though he performed that song solo, he brought his band along to perform "Gold Plated Lie", the latest single from his newest album Himalayas. Mulvahill showed his musical versatility when, after playing the rocking tune, he once again went solo with bass and bow for "Himalayas", creating a spacious sound that captivated the audience in the NPR Tiny Desk room and on YouTube viewers' screens everywhere. Mulvahill's on tour now with Lauren Daigle; he'll return to Nashville on March 17th to play the Ryman Auditorium. Catch his Tiny Desk performance below if you haven't already watched it. - Will Sisskind
