Natural Child release silky smooth “Out in the Country” single today


With influences like J.J. Cale, Canned Heat and Waylon Jennings, Nashville’s Natural Child create a sound that is a cross of classic country, southern soul R&B and psych rock. Today they released my favorite track off their new album, “Out in the Country”, a smooth as silk song layered with gorgeous swirling guitar lines and delicately funky keys. They just announced a tour with the Black Lips after their SXSW performances, listen to the new song below and check out their tour dates for a show near you.

Garage Swim – Adult Swim’s Garage Compilation – FREE Download


Cartoon Network’s new Adult Swim compilation Garage Swim continues the tradition of Adult Swim programmers having good taste in music. They’ve been playing Battles “Ice Cream” for awhile, and now they’ve brought tons of the current popular garage acts together for the compilation. Thee Oh Sees, Mikal Cronin, King Tuff, King Khan and others are all on here, noising and prettying it up. Some might say the new garage wave has no edge, and this absolutely helps their debate. I’m just glad loud, noisy and powerful are back again. Again. For people that keep up with my blog, you’ve seen me list a lot of these bands here, this is a good free album to get a taste of a bunch of them.
