Brainiac Documentary on Kickstarter: Pledge Now!

Brainiac is one of the best and also one of the most tragic stories in the music history of Dayton, Ohio. The mid 90’s was an explosion for “alternative rock” and with groups like Guided By Voices and The Breeders hailing from the Gem City, Dayton Ohio was on the indie map. Hell, the hype even brought Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins one night to our small, notable and now closed venue Canal Street Tavern. There...

TFN New Music Spotlight: Doug Tuttle – “Bait The Sun”

Doug Tuttle’s slick 60’s sound has always been a favorite, so getting excited for a new record is a given. Tuttle will release Peace Potato on May 5th via Trouble In Mind Records and then will embark on a tour (dates below). For a sound you can think of Tuttle as a modern day George Harrison, Richard Thomspon, and Todd Rundgren. Heavy praise but Tuttle backs it up. Check out his new track below. Tour dates May 7th –...

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’...
