Philadelphia-to-Nashville expat Ron Gallo might not even be done unpacking all the boxes in his apartment, but he’s got a chest full of musical treasures that he’s more than ready to start showing off. For his first act as a Tennessean, he’s released a video for “Young Lady, You’re Scaring Me,” a wooly-as-a-mammoth, jittery-as-a-jumping-bean little number off his forthcoming long player Heavy Meta. Ron stays cool and detached over it all with a rambly, hiccup-prone cadence not unlike Grinderman-era Nick Cave after a liter of cognac, and he’s got the literate, coarse lyrics to match.
Watch the video right here, and stop by The Basement tomorrow night (02.05) to catch Ron with Diane Coffee. Give him a warm Tennessee welcome for us, would ya? -Austin Phy
