Mini Meltdowns member Michelle Sullivan goes solo for new single release

Over the last fifteen years, songwriter and guitarist Michelle Sullivan has had her hand in a bowl full of Nashville indie bands, including Sherbert, TV Sisters, and Mini Meltdowns, the latter of whom just released their latest EP in April. Now Sullivan plans to release her first record, Expiration Date, under her own name in early 2019. The first releases from her upcoming debut -- singles "Little Pink Room" and "Psychopharmacology" -- feature Sullivan's backing band The All-Night Boys, who mash indie rock with brash protopunk and a bit of folk to produce a tight, gritty sound. Listen to them both below, and stay tuned for more word on the release of Expiration Date. - Will Sisskind

The All-New Insane release debut EP "Good Afternoon"; play Rocketown 12.12

There is something endearing about a band playing what they call "spooky rock and catchy tunes" at a venue where the mission directly names Christ. But The All-New Insane -- who do indeed have the catchy tunes -- will make it happen on December 12th at Rocketown. The group, made up of Friends For Sale's Baker Legate and Sweetrocket's Brian Simcox, has spent their year releasing singles, playing local shows, and recording their debut EP, Good Afternoon. That EP has just dropped on the group's Bandcamp page; it includes all of their previously released singles from the year, as well as two new tracks called "Fake Affection" and "Blush". Catch The All-New Insane's electric live show at Rocketown on 12/12, and take a listen to Good Afternoon below. - Will Sisskind





Drive!Drive! releases pop-heavy single "Love To Hate You"

Alt-pop up-and-comers Drive!Drive! hit me deep in two ways: They have continued the time-honored tradition of using punctuation in their band name, and they have become the only band I know of with an aquatic street team. They've released their third single of 2018, titled "Love To Hate You", a pop banger in the lyrical and musical vein of Carly Rae Jepsen and Walk The Moon. Drive!Drive!'s inspiration for music comes from founder Alex Johnson's desire to make music with other musicians who were in it for the fun and not the money; their collective passion comes through in "Love To Hate You". Their growing fan base has already fallen in love with the track; take a listen to it below for yourself. - Will Sisskind
