Night Riots - Remedy

Feels like: The Killers, Grouplove, The 1975, The Colourist

Hey all you Nashvillains, come out tonight to Mercy Lounge to see Hippo Campus, The Mowglis, and these California rockers, Night Riots!  The lead singer has a very distinctive Brandon Flowers-esque voice and their melodies swing between Grouplove and The 1975.  Give them a listen here, then join us tonight for their show!  See y'all there!

The Suffers - Make Some Room

Feels Like: St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Lake Street Dive, The Shadowboxers, Jill Scott

With a classic feel that takes you home to some of mama's old-fashioned good cookin', The Suffers bring you a video that features none other than just that. This smooth soul jam is perfect for the season and will be a standby of mine for weeks to come as spring comes into full form. My favorite line has got to be "Well, do you want a sandwich?", which is actually not put forward sarcastically. Side bar: Do we now live a society where we cannot offer sandwiches to each other without assuming sarcasm is at play? Everybody likes fucking sandwiches! In any case I bet you will like the title track release from The Suffers' debut EP. Check out the video below.

BØRNS - 10,000 Emerald Pools

Feels like: Gardens and Villa, The Griswolds, Sir Sly, Jinja Safari, Vacationer

Sometimes you just hear those songs that from the first note you are taken.  BØRNS just has all of that sexy, eerie, happy and wonderful sound from the word go.  Gotta gotta give them a listen right now!

The Wind and the Wave - It's a Longer Road to California Than I Thought

Feels like: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Shakey Graves, Shovels and Rope, Family and Friends

I know these guys are getting radio time here in Nashville [I have to believe largely in part to this post], but I realize some of you are not living down the road from us anymore.  I think you need to give them a listen, they have quite a few really nice songs, and they are right on time with this beautiful spring around us.

Mumford and Sons - The Wolf

Feels like: Foo Fighters got busy with Of Monsters and Men or Kings of Leon mated with The Head and the Heart or AWOLNATION mixed it with Family and Friends

Mumford and Sons are definitely going mainstream...but wait, they were already the new mainstream? I don't really care because I really like this new sound, and we can always use more rock gods like Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon.  Definitely worth a few listens.
