We love it when national mags cover Nashville's burgeoning, barely known local rock scene! It's great when the coasts take notice of all the talent that's been toiling here for years! Of course, they can't cover it all, and of course, they'll always lead the story with some cliché about Nashville finally being more than tears and beers. And we know we're nitpicking, but does it seem like maybe the only people Nylon (granted, a fashion mag ultimately) consulted for this piece about our "league of local talent creating an exciting new voice" was Movement Nashville? Maybe it's mere coincidence that all the bands featured are connected to the local commercially driven collective. Oh, and supposedly, this city has "suddenly become a hub for young, emerging creatives."
