Lost Arctic – “The Fight”

Music for… indulging that pop leaning sweet tooth but with just enough fuzzed grit to keep things funky. Kinda like a lollipop that fell behind the couch. Except without the trip to the sink to wash it off. And I think there might even be a kazoo in there which is awesome.

Location: Nashville, TN

Future: This is only Jason Keary’s debut jam as Lost Arctic but of the musical vibes in Nashville are anything to go by, I’m expecting a lot more.

ELEL – “40 Watt”

Sounds like… church music for disciples of big drums and good times. Sing along and sing loud! You will feel good, no, great!

Location: Nashville, TN

Future: “40 Watt” is the first single from debut album “Geode” out in 2015 via Mom+Pop Music.

BASECAMP – “Shudder”

Music for… either making tender love, or crying. I’m not sure which yet. But either way you are going to feel something. Thats just how BASECAMP operates. Sliding into the sublayers and steeping like hot tea until finally you feel soothed but never had to burn your lips.

Location: Nashville, TN.

Future: New EP coming soon.

Wild-Cub-interview

[SXSW INTERVIEW] Wild Cub talk SXSW strategy, remixes, and… aand… achoo!

I sat down with the guys in Wild Cub during SXSW to talk about the value of free food at SXSW, the short attention span of music fans, and the value of the remix (something Wild Cub has always used well).

We partnered with the awesome local clothing company California Limited on an adventure to Austin, Texas for the 2014 SXSW music festival. The Burning Ear spent the week having breakfast with some of our favorite bands. We discussed music, touring, SXSW, California, and most importantly, we ate breakfast tacos.

Coin - Atlas

[MP3] COIN – “Atlas”

More Nashville music! I swear I may just have to move out there if the quality of music keeps up this high. I’m telling ya… “Atlas” is some damn fun and bouncy indie rock with guitars, drums, and bass all working me into a jumpy fervor. Hard to not have a smile on your face with this jam. Grab other single “Time Machine” free too.

BASECAMP - Emmanuel

[MP3] BASECAMP – “Emmanuel”

BASECAMP - Emmanuel

There is a lot of great music coming out of Nashville these days but Basecamp doesn’t sound like Wild Cub, Cherub, Mikky Ekko, or Mona. This is music that traditionally comes from colder climates like Sweden, London or Toronto. “Emmanuel” is dark, slow, and leaves a lot of room to breath. The vocals ride with distance from the plinking percussion and gently droning synths. Wrap yourself in it. Their debut EP comes out next month.
