Ain’t no ‘Hack’

Listen to local Ryan Lawson’s new album, ‘Hack & Saw Nation,’ for free.

Choctaw folkie and singer/songwriter Ryan Lawson recently announced the release of his new album, “Hack & Saw Nation,” which you can stream for free or purchase at his Bandcamp page. Two live-recorded songs, “One Year Ago” and “Toxic Fumes,” are also available for free.

Lawson’s signature croon is a state treasure, and comes bolstered here by Melissa Stevens’ backing vocals. Also featured on the album are guitarist Aaron Tackett, bassist Kristina Tackett, multi-intstrumentalist Brad Fielder and fiddle player Daniel Foulks (who made an OKS appearance on video just a few weeks ago).

Can’t recommend this one enough. Stream it below, and do consider shelling out a couple of bucks for this one. “Broken Record”’s worth the $5 itself.

VOTD: Text your own adventure

Apparently, Polinski was too busy last year when Disney tapped Daft Punk to do the ‘Tron’ soundtrack.

Many an indie musician is drawing from throwback video games for influence these days (see: Neon Indian, Flying Lotus, The Nghiems), so it just kinda made sense for dance and techno-soundscape artist Polinski to put together this awesome, pixelated text-adventure video for the song “Stitches.” Pretty dramatic stuff:

Terra Lightfoot — Terra Lightfoot

This dream-folk debut will induce dead sleep.


Folk

Matt Carney
As the common people have progressed over the last 50-plus years, so has the topicality of their music. Since the development of genres in popular music in the 1950s, contemporary folk music has skewed apolitical, alluring and beautiful.

Body Language — Social Studies

This band is properly named.


Indie

Joshua Boydston
If Body Language breaks out like it has the potential to, the Brooklyn-based four piece surely would owe a heavy debt to Passion Pit; it’s a similar formula with the twist of adding a female vocalist … although that feels but a step removed from Michael Angelakos’ signature falsetto.

VOTD: Move over, Daft Punk

Help the world welcome the new Justice album with a pair of prog-tastic music vids.

There’s no denying the resounding influence of 1970s prog rock on Parisian electro-heads Justice (whom many have called the heirs to Daft Punk’s giant pyramid throne) and their much-anticipated second record, “Audio Video Disco,” which was released yesterday. 

The two videos below do well to match the enormity of these new tracks, particularly “Civilization,” which literally has glowing, stampeding space buffalo trying to dodge falling boulders as the world falls apart. Glad to know that somebody other than Kanye West wants to bring back what bands like Yes and King Crimson loved about music.

Watch:
