What do you do after you’re finished touring from the release of your debut full-length album?… Open a vintage clothing store in Nashville, of course!.. Nikki Lane has been hard at work putting the finishing touches to her new store High Class Hillbilly, which had its grand opening last Thursday at the 914 Woodland Street location.
Amazing vintage gear that we can’t wait to check out!… This store will definitely be on our things-to-do list for our next Nashville road trip. Check out pictures from the store below and their Etsy store HERE:

Nikki Lane’s ‘Walk of Shame’ is out now… pick up a copy HERE, stream the full album HERE and check out a few videos from the album below:
Happy New Year! What a way to start-off 2012 then to reflect on all the great music 2011 had to offer. So much in fact that we decided to make our Top 15 list and Top 20!
As always, next to each album title is a “Purchase from he artist or label” link, which takes you directly to the best possible way to purchase each album… directly from the band! If the artist doesn’t sell directly, the link will take you to their label. Support the arts, and keep these great musicians’ careers in-check for 2012!
On their debut, selt-titled LP, Those Darlins delivered to the world a fantastic album smothered and covered in deep-country roots blended with that perfect dosage of rock n’ roll. For the band’s sophomore effort, ‘Screws Get Loose,’ they show us that they’re a band who is here to stay, offering us nothing but growth, sustainability and song writing gold. If you don’t know of this Nashville 4-piece yet, they are soon to be a house-hold name and this LP is the proof.
Shannon Shaw of Shannon of the Clams + Seth Bogart (aka Hunx) are the perfect song writing team! Even thought Hunx and his Punx’s Punkettes played their last show this Fall due to the band’s other 2 members leaving this fall and with Hunx releasing a solo album in February, we hope this isn’t the last we hear from this Shannon/Seth project.
A two-piece from Little Rock do good with their diverse self-released debut. Only available via Bandcamp this year, expect to hear a lot more from The Coasts in the coming year. You can download the full album for only $5 (above or below) and a portion of the record sales will go towards the Hope For Haiti’s Children Foundation.
A stellar sophomore effort that was released less than a year after their debut LP, 2010’s ‘Pink Graffiti.’ If you ask us, with 2 great full length albums in under a year, that’s pretty impressive!… and the perfect formula for future success.
Look out world, the Jeff-bros are hear to stay! And this album says nothing but that. Recently signed to Warner Brothers (for the follow-up to this LP) and dropping an amazing 7-inch with Jack White via Third Man Records, we can’t wait to see what 2012 has instore for this 2-piece.
A couple of weeks ago we reported about the 7-inch release party at Nashville’s The Basement for the Denney and the Jets single ‘Killin’ Machine’ (see full article here)… Well, also sharing the stage that night and celebrating a release of her own, the new full-length LP ‘Walk of Shame’ was Nikki Lane.
After finally digging our teeth into the album, we are anticipating and hoping that this is the future of country music. The album gives a fresh take to country’s roots, giving it a modern twist that is refreshing to hear. From start to finish, the LP hit above and beyond our expectations and we can’t stop listening… But don’t take our word for it, stream the full ‘Walk of Shame’ LP below (compliments of Paste Magazine) and check out the video for the LP’s first single ‘Gone, Gone, Gone.’
‘Walk of Shame’ is available NOW via IAMSOUND Records… pick up your copy HERE or digital HERE… No vinyl at this time (our only complaint) Update: Vinyl drops November 22nd! Pre-order yours HERE!
… And here’s a live performance of that same single accompanied by Carey Kotsionis at The Mean Eyed Cat in Austin, TX:
Nashville’s Denney and the Jets first vinyl release, the 7-inch single ‘Killin’ Machine,’ dropped this week via Jeff the Brotherhood’sInfinity Catlabel and has been on sale for a couple weeks at Grimey’s New & Pre-Loved Records. But today marks the official release day with that band’s album release party, sharing the stage with Nashville’s Nikki Lane(who is also releasing a record tonight) and Alabama Shakes (headliners) via The Basement in Nashville. On top that, the artwork for the 7-inch (shown above) was designed by Those Darlins‘ Jessi Darlin!
If you are in the Nashville area tonight or are close by, this is definitely a can’t-miss-show! Doors open at 9, only 7 bucks… But if you can’t make it, pick up your copy of ‘Killin’ Machine’HERE. There are only 350 of these limited edition, hand numbered suckers, so move fast!… and check out the a-side below.
