The Arcadian Wild bid you "Look Around" on new EP

For those who like the bluegrassy side of indie folk (think The Punch Brothers or maybe Sufjan at his most stripped down), you should already be familiar with Nashville's The Arcadian Wild. If you're not, today they have released their newest 2-song EP, Look Around. The organically beautiful tracks "The Poet" and "Millstatt" are the first looks at the trio with new member, violinist Machaela Nesler. Their fine-tuned folk arrangements, poetic lyricism, and heartwarming harmonies make The Arcadian Wild a standout outfit in Music City. Check out Look Around below! - Chris Thiessen

Patzy debuts with dreamy single "Pat's Chord Pool"

If you haven't heard of Patzy yet, well, that's because there's not a whole lot to say yet. Their About page consists of "Patzy are some friends who play music in Nashville, TN. But hey, they share a name with the guy that bangs coconuts together in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So that's pretty neat. On a more important note, Patzy has debuted their first single, "Pat's Chord Pool," a dreamy piece of psych pop drenched in reverb and orchestral tendencies. Check out the single below and be sure to look out for their Opus Uno coming out this Spring. - Chris Thiessen


Ross Cooper delivers authentic country on "I Rode The Wild Horses"

Covering country artists here at the Deli is definitely an anomaly for us. However, country artists that are actually cowboys is also an anomaly. Before becoming a full-time musician, Ross Cooper did the whole bareback riding and rodeo thing until an injury ended that career. Luckily for him (and for us), he can put out some good music. On I Rode The Wild Horses, Cooper delivers authentic songwriting and country music that would fit next to contemporaries like Margo Price. Check out the title track below and catch Ross Cooper at Grimey's on March 12th at 6 PM! - Chris Thiessen


Szlachetka delivers heartwarming heartland rock on "Heart of My Hometown"

His name may look hard to pronounce, but the heartland rock and americana delivered by Szlachetka (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) is easy to love. February marked the release of Szlachetka's debut full length Heart of My Hometown which blends sweet, heartwarming folk ballads ("Wildflowers on the Highway") with the type of crunchy rock tracks you'd expect from vintage Tom Petty ("Until That Echo"), all wrapped up in a modern package a la Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. If you missed him at 3rd & Lindsley last week, make sure to check out the record! And listen to "Heart of My Hometown" below. - Chris Thiessen

Nashville's Oddnote rocks hard on self-titled debut

Just formed last summer, five-piece rock outfit Oddnote is packing a punch with their self-titled debut. Seamlessly combining hard-hitting blues rock (see "Money Comes, Money Goes") with Nirvana/Soundgarden/Foo Fighters-inspired '90s rock and roll (see "Ice Hell", "Neurons", and the whole album pretty much), the 15 tracks of Oddnote feel like a rocket blast. Make sure to check out the Nashville shoutout on "615" as well! And watch the trippy video for "Money Comes, Money Goes" below! - Chris Thiessen
