Nashville/West Virginia folk-rock outfit Coyotes in Boxes celebrate the release of their YOWLER EP with a free show Friday at The World Famous, where attendees will also receive a free download of the new release. We asked the band to explain the inspiration behind each song on the EP. Plus, check out an exclusive stream of "Astrid," the record's second track.
We’re proud of the work on our first album, and Curtis and Fox, but for our new, six-song EP, we wanted to capture a more eccentric side of the band. YOWLER represents our move to East Nashville from Huntington, WV nicely—the production is slicker and weirder. The songs were inspired as much by cultural archetypes and our own invented mythology than any particular artists that we’ve been listening to lately. Here’s our track-by-track run down on what gave life to YOWLER.
This weekend, the Dog Daze Festival returns for a fourth year to the 40 Watt Club. On Friday and Saturday, you can catch a frighteningly good selection of local bands and a couple regional hotshots—as well as a psychedelic light show Friday and DJs both nights—for a mere $5 each evening. (Read our preview here.)
Today, we're pleased to premiere the 2014 Dog Daze Festival Compilation, a free-to-download collection of songs from many of the groups performing at this year's DDF, including Faux Ferocious, Monsoon, DIP, Wild of Night, Timmy and the Tumblers and many others.
Alt-country band Futurebirds has teamed up with beloved Athens-based coffee roaster Jittery Joe's to release "Baba Java," the first release in what's purported to be a line of "Athens music coffee." The collaboration between the band and the coffeemaker was inspired by a famous local performance, according to the press release:
If you're a fan of Whiskeytown, the seminal but defunct Ryan Adams-led act from North Carolina, you're not alone amongst your fellow Athenians. Our little town boasts a rather sizeable and influential alternative country contingent; twangy rockers like Drive-By Truckers and, more recently, Futurebirds have even gone on to represent the Classic City on the national scene.
