Slow Parade, The Minks, Nordista Freeze

Led by songwriter Matthew Pendrick, Atlanta’s Slow Parade puts a staccato twist on soulful Americana. The group plays a release show Friday for its new LP, Hi-Fi LowLife. Supporting act The Minks blend classic rock and roll with Nashville blues drawl while maintaining a modern vibrancy. Lead singer Nikki Barber’s vocals resonate with brash brilliance atop layers of brazen bass, electric guitar, mournful harmonica and steady drums. Nordista Freeze, also hailing from Music City, blends his dream-pop tenor with a 1960s psychedelic chime, his reverence for the Beach Boys apparent in Freeze’s high-register vocal harmonies.
