The Week in Fresh Tracks [Denney and the Jets, Makeup and Vanity Set, Tate Eskew, Slick, Hotpipes]

Posted By on Fri, Mar 21, 2014 at 4:10 PM

Well, between William Tyler's brand-new, 13-minute, full-band groover and Dee Goodz unleashing a pair of tracks (one of which is on the official Game of Thrones mixtape), we've already had some excellent fresh-track action this week. Follow me below to hear some more good stuff. As always, look back at past weeks in fresh tracks here, and if you've got something for us, email cream[at]nashvillescene[dot]com.

Denney and the Jets, "Mama's Got the Blues (Feat. Seth Murray)"

As we mentioned when we shared their "Bye Bye Queenie" last month, local rock 'n' rollers Denney and the Jets will release their LP Mexican Coke on April 8. Well, they've got another taste of the good stuff — it's called "Mama's Got the Blues," and it features some "additional guitar shredding" by Natural Child co-frontman Seth Murray. If you like, oh I dunno, Sticky Fingers, I think you're going to dig the rockin' Southern groovin' of "Mama's." Stream it above or via Soundcloud, and stay tuned for more on Mexican Coke.

Makeup and Vanity Set, "Results, Revision," "Adolescence (featuring Jasmin Kaset)" and "Senses/Dynamics"

As contributor Stephen "Goose" Trageser pointed out last week, local electronic experimentalist Matt Pusti (aka Makeup and Vanity Set) recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a project that marries a MAVS record (Wilderness) with a Joey Ciccoline film (Eidolon). Well, over the course of the past week, Pusti has unveiled three new Makeup and Vanity Set tunes: "Results, Revision," "Adolescence (featuring Jasmin Kaset)" and "Senses/Dynamics," all of which you can hear above or at MAVS' Soundcloud page. Dig in; it's all tuneful, lush stuff — I especially enjoy Kaset's vocals on "Adolescence."

Tate Eskew, oldowan

Local musician Tate Eskew has been a part of many projects, but it's under his own name that he's released the brand-new ambient guitar drone piece oldowan via Functional Equivalent Recordings. Featuring two tracks that are each 11 minutes and 17 seconds in length — first "Habilis," then "Egaster" — oldowan is cinematic and minimalist and inspired by "exploration of regenerative ecology and indigenous culture." Calming, mellow, otherworldly. Stream oldowan above or purchase it digitally or on cassette via Eskew's Bandcamp page.

Slick, Street Lips

Slick isn't fucking around. Slick makes a glossy brand of rock 'n' roll that unironically recalls KISS and Van Halen and other gods of glam metal. Stream their latest, Street Lips, above, or purchase it via their Bandcamp page.

Hotpipes, "The Future Is Where We Belong (Remix by Norm)"

Oh hey, want to hear an abandoned remix of Hotpipes' "The Future Is Where We Belong" by Dave Paulson (aka Norm)? You got it!
