Rolling Stone: India Ramey’s “King Of The Ashes” Selected As A Song Of The Week

Rolling Stone: India Ramey’s “King Of The Ashes” Selected As A Song Of The Week

Nashville singer-songwriter India Ramey conjures up the apocalyptic dread of the Trump era in “King of the Ashes,” from her upcoming album Shallow Graves. Over ominous minor chords and rumbling baritone guitar, Ramey describes a serpent-tongued wolf in sheep’s clothing who “preys on the fearful and the weak.” But instead of hopelessness, she’s calling for action, to speak up and rise up: “‘Cause hate is gasoline and silence is the matches.”

The Vinyl District: Debut Of India Ramey’s Video For “King Of The Ashes”

The Vinyl District: Debut Of India Ramey’s Video For “King Of The Ashes”

The video for “King of Ashes” reflects our social distanced spring, with Ramey singing out as if from an underground pirate radio station, getting out the message to friends, family and fans who had each sent in clips of them listening and responding to the renegade broadcast. Finally, it’s artfully strung together as an urgent black and white call to action that has much more life than any Zoom connection. It ends with a booming guitar outro with a link to voter registration.

The Fader: Debut Of Guts Club’s “Song For Carm”

The Fader: Debut Of Guts Club’s “Song For Carm”

The original song credits FIVE MEN with the songwriting. Unbelievable, because it’s literally two chords and lyrics that rhyme ‘gun’ with ‘one.’ That’s nice though because I think even when you skip intro they still get a cut. It’s like when you win the lottery with your work friends.

Bust Magazine: Debut Of Impulsive Hearts’ Video For “Telephone Girl”

If you close your eyes and turn on Cry All the Time, the new LP by Impulsive Hearts, the surf-rock band’s sound will transport you to a gloomy beach, where you’ll want to dance, reminisce, and of course, cry. But the Chicago-bred band’s music will do more than take you to the water — it will help the Chicago community.

Fader: Debut Of Loose Koozies’ “Hills,” The First Single Off Of Their Debut Album, ‘Feel A Bit Free’

Fader: Debut Of Loose Koozies’ “Hills,” The First Single Off Of Their Debut Album, ‘Feel A Bit Free’

Southeast Michigan-based country rock outfit Loose Koozies make thrillingly unfussy music. Pedal steel guitarist Pete Ballard has a hypnotically languid style, lead guitarist Andrew “Mad Dog” Moran [Ed. Note: Hell yeah] is as comfortable lounging at the back of the mix as he is giddily bursting into solos, and bassist Erin Davis and drummer Nick German seemingly have the sort of implicit connection that underpins most great rock bands.
