BASS DRUM OF DEATH.  If Jeff the Brotherhood and The Ramones had a baby.


Catchy lo-fi rock n’ roll. Plain and simple. Some may gripe about the lo-fi quality of the Oxford, Mississippi band’s self titled sophomore release (though from the sounds of their new LP teaser “For Blood” they may be elevating some of those said critics concerns) but I for one, love it. The gritty home recorded sound of the drums, the reverb soaked vocals, it all just works. If you are a fan of garage rock, check these kids out.

KISHI BASHI.  If Passion Pit, Andrew Bird and a young Paul McCartney had a baby.
I was not hip to this guy until I heard that Busman’s Holiday was going on tour with them. So I checked him out and immediately bought his latest release, Lighght. It is a fantastically orchestrated album. It has a danceable Passion Pit feel at times, the layered strings of Andrew Bird and in songs like “Q&A,” even a young Paul McCartney-esque voice. Definitely worth a listen.

GRASS ROOT KIDS.  If The Appleseed Cast and Manchester Orchestra had a baby.
These guys (and gal) are the kind of band you want to have in your local music scene. A hardworking, original band that has that “all for one” kind of attitude with the other local bands. I was only able to find one EP online (“Loose Change”) but keep an eye out for these “kids” as I suspect they will gain more and more fans and attention with each release.
 
***The Grass Root Kids are hosting this months BMI 8 off 8th at The Mercy Lounge in Nashville, TN, next week on Monday December 9th. w/ special guests The Highland Reunion, Levi Weaver, The Oak Creek Band, Lines in the Sky, This Mountain, The Rough and Tumble and The Winter Sounds

SHAKEY GRAVES. If Devendra Banhart, M. Ward and Seasick Steve had a baby.
Happy Monday! Here’s another Cause a Scene Music Venn Review for you! Featuring Shakey Graves from the Cause a Scene Presents show at The High Watt, in Nashville TOMORROW. Doors at 8pm. Show at 9pm. $7 (w/ Wild Child & Marmalakes) (Event Page)
Shakey Graves’ studio work sounds old. Like a M. Ward produced album. Unlike M. Ward, however, his voice has some range. Range in the way that one song he can sound so similar to Devendra Banhart and the next, he’ll have this soulful grit to his voice like Seasick Steve.

ALL THEM WITCHES. If Queens of the Stone Age and The Black Keys had a baby.
This is the first Neoteric Nashville band of the month feature. The Venn Review will be teaming up with the fine folks from NN to feature their band of the month artists.
All Them Witches have a blues(y) sound I couldn’t put my finger on. EARLY Black Keys come to mind. Some of the more rock-riffed songs reminded me of Queens of the Stone Age but they still have this groove unlike either of their “parents”. It was a tough one to pin down, for sure. Worth a listen. I look forward to checking them out live sometime soon.

CAYUCAS. If Little Joy and Beck (Odelay) had a baby.
Just stumbled across this band yesterday. I imediately thought of Beck as the Dad in this relationship. The Little Joy connection is for the frequent reverb and island feel that this album brings. Looking forward to giving these guys a few more listens, as there are some very catchy, single worthy songs on it.
