The Districts, a Philadelphia four-piece, return with their first piece of music since their 2015 album, A Flourish and a Spoil. “Ordinary Day,” mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen,Explosions in the Sky), is hopefully a good preview of what will come on their upcoming full length. The Districts are currently putting the finishing touches on that new record which will be released later this year via Fat...

TFN New Music Spotlight: Peter Holsapple – “Don’t Mention The War”

Peter Holsapple, formerly of the late, great dB’s, has pressed a new single to 7 inch vinyl, and it’s worthy of your attention. “Don’t Mention the War,” a slow folky blues in the tradition of Bob Dylan’s work with The Band, takes on the impact of PTSD on soldiers and their families with a very personal narrative about a beloved uncle. While it feels old school in some ways, it arrives as the perfect companion to Drive-By Truckers’...

TFN New Music Spotlight: Heath Green and The Makeshifters – “Ain’t It A Shame”

Heath Green has stayed under the radar for the last 15 years but with lots of hard work he has built a reputation as one of the finest songwriters and performers around the Birmingham music scene. Now, the Makeshifters have rounded out his sound with a unique blend of Swampers-tinged R&B and churning Zeppelin/Sabbath riffage— all tied together by Green’s smoky and guttural leave-it-on-the-stage delivery. Yeah, its good and you...

TFN New Music Spotlight: Pink Pussycats From Hell – “Hellga”

We really couldn’t pass on a band name like Pink Pussycats From Hell. The duo hails from the forests of Portugal and bring you a rough rock in the vein of MC5’s, The Stooges and The Cramps. You either are in or out with this group and hopefully you are not out based on the ski mask (Mighty Hunter – guitar) and bunny (Danger Rabbit – Drums)! Their debut record is titled Hell-P and was just released via Raging...
