"My parents listened to a lot of Paul Simon, Simon and Garfunkel and James Taylor, and I've always been pretty into [Simon's] first few solo records," he explains. "Just the way he mixed cool musical ideas with interesting lyrics. I think that's what's missing in a lot of modern music. It's either really cool musically, or really cool lyrically. I wanted to try and merge those things. Why not? More people should." [interview with Rolling Stone]Nashville-via-Dallas country singer Andrew Combs has been at it for all of the current decade. He self-released his debut Tennessee Time EP in 2010, and earlier this year he put out his second full length, All These Dreams, on Coin Records. You can watch the video for "Nothing to Lose" from the new album, below. Andrew also recently teamed up with Caitlin Rose and they co-wrote the song "What It Means To You." A video of them performing it for one of Langhorne Slim's Pink House Sessions is below, too.
Andrew has several tour dates coming up, including a few opening for Kacey Musgraves and a longer run opening for Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers. The dates with Kacey include Long Island on July 18 at The Paramount, and the dates with Nicki include NYC on August 28 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for the Paramount and Bowery are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Kacey's newest, Pageant Material, came out just last week on Mercury. It's already gotten a lot of acclaim, ending up on best-albums-of-2015-so-far lists by A.V. Club and Rolling Stone, landing on the cover of FADER and scoring an 8.0 on Pitchfork. You can watch the video for "Biscuits" from that album, below.

Nashville singer/songwriter Adia Victoria put out her debut single "Stuck in the South" this year, and it didn't take long for the track to catch on -- it's already gained praise from Nashville Scene, Rookie, American Songwriter, and Wondering Sound, who included it in their list of their favorite songs of 2014. Adia also caught the attention of Those Darlins, who had her join them in a recent Nashville Scene video session with Caitlin Rose (video below). Adia's single has a Southern twang to it, but it's also got dark doomy riffs that aren't too far removed from '90s PJ Harvey. Listen for yourself below.
Adia also has a tour announced for 2015, including a NYC show happening on January 27 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

It's the first work week of December and the year-end music lists for 2013 keep piling in. We just saw album lists from Q and Mojo, and now we get a list from a US publication, SPIN. There's not too many surprises on this one. Like last year, it shares its #1 with the highest Pitchfork-rated album of the year, and in general it features many of the albums we expect to see on these kinds of lists, including a lot of the year's big-name comebacks like My Bloody Valentine, Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk, Queens of The Stone Age, Boards of Canada and Nine Inch Nails, plus big breakouts like Haim and Disclosure. There are a few interesting omissions though, like Savages.
Check out their full list below...

Caitlin Rose at Mercury Lounge - 4/1/13
Folk rocker Caitlin Rose released her rousing album, The Stand In, last month and has been on tour in support of it. We caught her at our SXSW day party, and again in NYC at her Mercury Lounge show last night (4/1). Pictures from that show are in that post. It was her second of two NYC shows in the past week, including Saturday's Union Hall show. Both were supported by Andrew Combs. At the Mercury Lounge show, Caitlin played a lot of her new album, in addition to two songs from her 2010 debut, and closed her set with a cover of the Buck Owens classic, "I've Got a Tiger by the Tail."
The full setlist and more pictures from the show below...
Caitlin Rose @ BV SXSW 3/13/2013

Delorean / Savages
We kicked off our free BrooklynVegan SXSW day parties yesterday (3/13) in Austin at the Main & The Jr (aka the old Emo's location, aka 603 Red River St) with sets from Delorean, Robyn Hitchock, Savages, Camper Van Beethoven, Caveman, Braids, Maserati, Caitlin Rose, Anamanaguchi, Indians, Marnie Stern, Team Spirit, Torres, and Deep Sea Diver. Pictures from the party are in this post, and more are on the way soon.
The biggest surprise for me personally was Torres (aka Mackenzie Scott), whose self titled debut is great, but she really takes it to another level live. Her band is super tight, loud, and confident (her guitarist has some rock star moves) and Mackenzie has some serious pipes that she doesn't even fully reveal on the album. It was a much heavier show than I expected, and if you can catch her at one of her other upcoming SXSW shows, highly recommended.
Torres was followed by other great sets on the outdoor stage (Glasslands Stage), like the noisy math rock of Marnie Stern (who played a lot of her great new album), the danceable video game punk of Anamanaguchi, and a set from post-rockers Maserati, who along with Caveman, cooled things down for a bit. But that cooling down didn't last long, because once Savages took the stage, they were possibly even more intense than CMJ. They played some new stuff that they didn't have back then, and once that album finally drops, I've got pretty high hopes for it. Finally, Delorean wrapped up the outdoor stage with a dancey set. It was nice to end the day with some familiar tunes like "Real Love." Then Maserati came out and joined Delorean for a cover over Gary Numan's "Cars." Not really.
Meanwhile, indoors Deep Sea Diver kicked things off around the same time as Torres outside and they were followed by the fun-rock of Team Spirit, Copenhagen's Indians (who were a 3-piece and were better that way than when I saw him solo), a rousing country set from Caitlin Rose, the new electronic sound of Braids (which we also heard at CMJ), and the show ended with sets from two musical veterans: Camper Van Beethoven and Robyn Hitchcock. Robyn was great and he is especially funny on stage with his in-between song banter. He referred to the overheard sounds of Delorean from the other room as the sounds of devils, and "if they had been heard 200 years earlier, marches of men would have been sent to destroy these fiends," (or something like that).
In addition to the music, Onkyo was there, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. mophie, maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, and free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers. We also had BrooklynVegan t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, WILLCALL, Mirrored Media, and Redigi.
Our day parties continue today (3/14) with sets from Cloud Nothings, Parenthetical Girls, Death, METZ, Milk Music, Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, and more.

Caitlin Rose @ Mercury Lounge
"Although 23-year-old singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose was born and raised in Nashville, she first rose to acclaim in Europe, where her debut album put her name on the influential UK music magazine NME's "Cool List" for 2010. Rose's confident voice and dexterous delivery have earned her comparisons to great country singers like Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. She's also a gifted lyricist with a knack for wry observations and artful understatement. It's a talent that runs in the family--her mother is Nashville songwriter Liz Rose, who has penned hits for Taylor Swift, among others." [NPR]Caitlin Rose's tour hit Mercury Lounge in NYC on Saturday evening for a show with Luke Rathborne. More pictures, some videos, and her setlist from the show, below...

Ron Sexsmith @ Highline Ballroom
In the documentary film about Ron Sexsmith, "Love Shines," Elvis Costello casts the Canadian musician in the same realm as one of rock 'n' roll's historic performers."Love Shines" was an audience favorite at SXSW.
"I think Ron has got one of the purest seams of melody, that he has access to exclusively, since Paul McCartney," Costello says.
There's no higher praise, but some folks are undoubtedly saying "Who's Ron Sexsmith?"
...He's just released a fantastic album, "Long Player Late Bloomer," which features the production of Bob Rock, best known for his work with Metallica, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue. The biopic "Love Shines" premiered recently at South By Southwest, and Sexsmith made a national television appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
Sexsmith admits he's excited, a far cry from the melancholy that haunted him after his previous album, "Exit Strategy of the Soul," more or less tanked. When Rock agreed to produce "Long Player" Sexsmith's joy was leavened by a sense of disbelief. -[Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]
Speaking of Elvis Costello, who is playing a solo set at this year's Newport Folk Fest, he's playing a small, late show at Gramercy Theatre tonight (4/1), and probably something before that too. Those staying home can catch him on TV.
More pictures from that show (including one of the setlist), tour dates, videos from Kimmel and SXSW, the documentary trailer & more, below...
