Denney & the Jets – Mexican Coke

Nashville Example “Who loves Burger Records?!” “Kel loves Burger Records!” And by Kel, I mean me. Denny & the Jets exemplifies everything that Nashville bands are known for: crazy amount of live shows, DYI work ethic, heart, and hit the ground running approach to music. They mean business. Denney & the Jets keep that Nashville sound but add a little extra nod to the South. They throw in boozed out blues rock with a touch of (*gasp*) country!

It also has that 60s Rolling Stones jam drive…

Thee Oh Sees – Singles Collection Vol. 3

Here’s the thing: Thee Oh Sees are prolific and can do no wrong. When someone said, “Oh, it’s just a singles collection” I looked them right back and said, “It’s Thee Oh Sees!” There is a reason this is Volume 3 of the singles collection. They must have done something right with the first two volumes! The great thing about a singles collection is that it isn’t an album; it allows each song to stand on it’s own as a representation of the band’s latest sounds. It is a showcase. This collection features electrically charged garage-psych rock tunes with a coating of distortion and scuzz. Thee Oh Sees are good at many things, one being…
