Moon Taxi debuts “All Day All Night”

Musicians Trevor Terndrup, Tommy Putnam, and Spencer Thomas founded Moon Taxi in 2006 while attending Belmont University. The Nashville band added drummer Tyler Ritter and keyboardist Wes Bailey a short time afterwards.


In an interview with Billboard, Putnam tells the account of how the band received its name. While attempting to hail hurrying taxis in downtown Nashville, Terndrup (vocalist) began to moon the cabs as they passed in order to get the driver’s attention. Although his effort to get a ride failed, the band has accomplished releasing multiple albums in the past few years with their most recent album Mountains Beaches Cities. The band recently finished playing at Bonnaroo 2015. Moon Taxi tells EARMILK that their newest song is an anthem for those who “are out there living crazy round-the-clock lives” and tells of the “one thing that keeps you going all day and all night.”



Moon Taxi debut their newest song “All Day All Night” on June 2015.


DMA’s debuts “Laced”

It all started in a bedroom-studio with three friends and “nostalgic garage pop.” Johnny Took and Tommy O’Dell were playing in a rock band, Underlights. After a jam session with guitarist Matt Mason, Australian-based band the DMA’s was founded in 2012. DMA’s bedroom demos received much recognition and they went on to cut a deal with indie label I Oh You. The band released their debut self-titled EP in 2014.

In an interview with The Brag, producer/guitarist Johnny Took explained that the band concentrates their energy on the song because “if there aren’t good songs coming out, then there’s nothing really.” They receive their musical influences from artists like Primal Scream, Oasis, and Happy Mondays. Although the band’s initial intent was to be a solely studio-based band, with the EP’s huge success they have expanded to performing live on stage and touring.

DMA’s debut EP is now available in the US and released their newest single “Laced.”

Reno Bo debuts “Lessons from a Shooting Star”

Singer, songwriter, and bass enthusiast, Reno Bo, got his start in Poughkeepsie, New York with a love of music spear-headed by his father’s love of Motown and Doo Wop records.

“I’ve been a touring guy forever and played in a bunch of bands out there [New York], then I moved to Nashville and started songwriting,” Bo said. “I’d heard about this oasis of Nashville musicians and songwriters, and thought, ‘that’s the place to be’.”
Bo’s sound is retro-rock and pop influenced, as his personal favorited bands include The Beach Boys, Big Star, Tom Petty, and The Beatles. Each of these can be heard in songs such as “I See Stars”, “There’s a Light”, and “Shake Me Up”.

“I think about Jerry Seinfeld. How he probably watches ‘Seinfeld’ and thinks ‘where’d that come from?’ But, he must not sit down and write jokes. I imagine he is inspired by the funny things that happen in his life,” Bo said about his writing process. “I’m trying to do that in music. Just write my music as life goes on. So, I don’t sit down necessarily and just write.”

Inspired by his friendships with non-musical people, and the Marx Brother’s movies, Reno Bo maintains a life in Nashville, TN. He will be playing a gig this Friday, June 26th at Soulshine Pizza Factory with Lightning 100 at 7pm in support of his new album, “Lessons From a Shooting Star”.

Lilly Hiatt debuts “Get This Right”


Royal Blue, the second album by East Nashville firebrand Lilly Hiatt, is about the majesty of melancholy—or, as she explains it, “accepting the sadder aspects of life and finding some peace in them.” A dance between pedal steel and synths, the album examines the vagaries of love and commitment but steadfastly refuses to romanticize any notion of romance. Singing in a barbed lilt full of deep worry and gritty determination in equal measure, she conveys emotions too finely shaded to be easily named, yet will be familiar to any listener who’s had their heart broken—or has broken a heart.


Local Spotlight: MODOC

If you’re wondering what the sound of “New Nashville” is, listen to the rockin’ tunes of local band, MODOC. Formed at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, the band moved to Nashville post-college where they’ve cultivated a fresh sound with melodic rock rhythms. ” Since their debut, self-titled album release in August 2013, MODOC has been hard at work in the studio on their second album with Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs. Vance Powell who has previously worked with other Nashville-based rock groups such as Kings of Leon and The White Stripes is mixing their upcoming single set to come out soon. Be sure to check MODOC out at Tennessee Brew Works this Saturday, June 6, for their second annual Block Party, where there will be live music, food and beer!

Thanks to Megan Little from @lightning100 for stopping by for an interview this morning!

Why did you decide to move to Nashville after college?

We’re Midwest kids so New York City and L.A. seemed a little far I guess.

We moved here when band pages were becoming really popular, so finally people started to come on the Internet and find bands that they really loved. Every other band that we found that we started getting into and we really loved, they were all in Nashville.

And a lot of them weren’t big bands at the time. We were really into early Kings of Leon stuff, but then they weren’t anything really. They were here before people knew they were here.

Howard Shares debuts “Money Can’t Buy”


In Japanese culture there is a type of nostalgia known as mono no aware, or a wistful appreciation for the impermanence of life and the passing of things. This feeling is channeled by the folk-electronica group from Brooklyn known as Howard on their new song entitled, “Money Can’t Buy,” the second single from their debut album “Religion,” out now on Falling People Records.

“Money Can’t Buy” is a meditation on the angst inflicted by a departed lover, composed of impressionistic snapshots of unfulfilled longing, backed by the uncertain skitter of drums and a looping finger-picked pattern on acoustic guitar, pushing the dream towards it’s all too certain conclusion, “We’re all gonna die.”


Tony Lucca debuts “Delilah”


Tony Lucca debuts “Delilah” off his recent self title release on 100.1 FM.  Tony Lucca finished third on The Voice in 2012, won a record deal in the process, and received more press coverage than any contestant on the show that season… or any season, for that matter.  He made a record with Adam Levine, then toured with Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson.  He was cast on the hit show “Parenthood” playing himself as a rock singer, and performed an original song.  He even starred in an Aaron Spelling prime-time drama and dated Keri Russell for years, winding up in countless gossip mags.

“We went in with the intention of making a record that was as live-sounding as possible. I wanted to close my eyes and be able to visualize the players in the room or up on the stage, actually playing the songs together. One guitar over here, the other guy over there, bass, drums, some keys? I mean, that’s the rock-n-roll I fell in love with when I was a kid.” Lucca pulls inspiration from the heroes he heard on the radio growing up, from Tom Petty, Billy Squier to AC/DC’s Angus Young, tapping into a sense of timelessness he places somewhere between The Black Crowes and the Black Keys.

Each of the 12 songs on “Tony Lucca” are deeply personal. The record kicks off with “Old Girl”, Lucca’s rebuff to the music business treadmill. On the upbeat “Imagination”, Lucca recalls the evening where he met his wife… to the best of his ability. Lucca’s fans will enjoy the diverse sonic quality of four of his trademark ballads – the epic and sweeping piano-driven “North Star”, the optimistic “Smoke ‘Em”, the push and pull of love lost and found in “Right On Time”, and the sweet album closer that bares his daughter’s name, “Sparrow”.

Funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign (one that hit its $25K funding goal just inside of 30 hours), Lucca feels strongly that his fans stepped up so that he could make the best record he possibly could – one he could finally feel comfortable releasing with his own name as the title. To that point, Lucca says “this record is pure. And honest. And hopefully completely refreshing to its listeners.”
