Chief Scout, Concord America, Red Sky Days, Small Beige Girl

Athens-via-Suwanee singer-songwriter Trey Rosenkampff has fast made a name for himself in regional circles via Chief Scout, his house-show-ready garage-rock project that takes the unbridled energy of early Black Keys and fuses it with the arena-ready hooks of, well, latter-era Black Keys. Except, Chief Scout doesn’t sound like the Black Keys. Sure, there are high-octane, vaguely bluesy guitar heroics involved. But the 20-year-old Rosenkampff’s is a more inclusive and incisive brand of retro-rock, not to mention fresher all around. Dig the new single “Run Away From Home,” which features a catchy truth bomb of a chorus: “Run away from the ones you love/ ‘Cause if you stick around for too long/ You ain’t gonna love them anymore.”
