Adia Victoria performs new album tracks 12.06 at Third Man Records

Now that the leftover turkey and/or tofurkey have been sealed tight in Tupperwares, according to every AOR radio station in America, it's Christmas time. And to mark the occasion, blues rock artist Adia Victoria will present "Delta Blues Christmas" at Jack White's Third Man Records on December 6th. She'll perform as part of a night of entertainment which includes both a panel discussion about the history of black art and the blues as part of protest and activism and poetry from Nashville-based artists, including Victoria herself. Victoria will perform two sets of music; one acoustic set followed by a full band set of newer material, some of which will appear on her upcoming LP Silences. The sophomore album drops in February 2019, and a nationwide tour is set to follow the release. Victoria has already shared the first single from the album, called "Dope Queen Blues"; you can watch the lyric video for it below. - Will Sisskind

Spazz Cardigan releases single "DOIDOIT"; plays 12.02 at Basement East with Smallpools

Chaz McKinney has had a big year releasing music as Spazz Cardigan, the electro-pop songwriting vehicle which has put out four Spotify New Music Friday featured singles in 2018 alone. The most recent of those singles is "DOIDOIT", an introspective pop jam smacking of Mark Ronson's work. More upbeat than some of his other singles to come out this year, McKinney's "DOIDOIT" asks the question of "Why do we do the things that we do?" in many ways, such as: "Did I see it in a movie? Do I do it just because?" This electric track will be among the many McKinney plays at The Basement East as an opening act for Smallpools, who are releasing their EP So Social at the gig. That show will take place on December 2nd, and it's sure to be a big one. Catch Spazz Cardigan live then; until then, take a listen to "DOIDOIT" below. - Will Sisskind


Jangle-pop artist Patrick Damphier releases single "Pretend It" from upcoming LP

Jangle-pop artist and former Paper Rival member Patrick Damphier has announced his upcoming LP Say I'm Pretty, which drops on 02.01.2019. To kick off the countdown to release day, Damphier has posted the first single from the album, called "Pretend It". The track has a hazy feel much like the early 2010s work of Real Estate; Billboard, which premiered the single, called Damphier's most recent work "broad-ranging" and "intricate". "Pretend It", with its dark post-punk influences, features fellow singer-songwriter collaborators Jessica Lea Mayfield, Richard Swift, and Molly Parden. It's one of a handful of tracks that Damphier chose for Say I'm Pretty out of a catalogue of over 150. Take a listen to "Pretend It" below. - Will Sisskind


Synth-pop trio PreCog play The East Room 11.23

To close out another Black Friday, dark indietronica group Precog will take The East Room's stage on November 23rd as part of a bill with Brooklyn industrial rock group Abbey Death and touring goth ambient rockers from Maryland, Ego Likeness. Precog have spent the year creating new music and playing around Nashville; their latest album, Pareidolia, came out last year to critical and public acclaim. The band takes inspiration from classic dark electronic groups like Depeche Mode and Massive Attack; however, their style holds back from copying tried-and-true genre formulas and instead experiments with implementing classical, industrial, and retrowave elements into their music. What results is music that reaches across timelines to become something that could be timeless. Take a listen to Pareidolia below, and catch them at The East Room on Black Friday. - Will Sisskind
