"Wait" by The Commonheart

The Commonheart dropped their second album Pressure this past August, wrapped up their headlining Fall tour and are keeping things lively this month down in Florida.  The 10 person band reigning from Pittsburgh is led by frontman Clinton Clegg and there's no doubt that the sound is explosive and soulful.  Bursting onto the scene in 2016, this is one of those groups that we suggest you make it a point to seek out and see live!

"Don't Give Up" by Lee Fields & the Expressions

We had the pleasure of having Lee Fields headline our HopSauce Festival back in 2017.  Little JB stays busy as he released a new album, It Rains Love, earlier this year and just last week a new song, Don't Give Up.  It's amazing that Lee is still putting music out today after recording his first single in 1969!  We'll take all of the soul that we can get!

"High Steppin'" by The Avett Brothers

This week we're heading back East to feature The Avett Brothers!  The NC-based Americana band are no strangers to most with 10 studio albums, a spot in the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame and top notch production by the likes of Rick Rubin.  Enjoy the video for High Steppin' and check out their latest album, Closer Than Together, which dropped last month.   Read More...

"Good Luck" by Broken Bells

Broken Bells just released Good Luck, but odds are we'll probably have to wait a while for their third full-length.  The proven success of James Mercer (The Shins) collaborating with Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) has us all anxious to hear more, but as they've stated in recent interviews, their both constantly writing and recording on multiple projects.  They have confirmed that they are working on that third album...

"Pure Gold" by Half Alive

Half Alive's debut album Now, Not Yet was released this month and it's everything we thought it would be considering the heavy stream volume of their previous singles that dropped leading up to it.  The CA-based trio simply has a different sound, and the album is the culmination of 4+ years of writing and assembling the band.  It's Labor Day, so kick back and check out Pure Gold, but honestly, listen through the entire album as it's one of the best we've heard in some time!     Read More...

"Strands Align" by Night Moves

This week we're featuring Minneapolis band Night Moves!  They just dropped their 3rd album, Can You Really Find Me, which is getting great reviews and perhaps too many comparisons to greats from the 70's era.  We only say that because we love a solid, underrated band and would advocate to let them Draw Their Own Line!  Enjoy their fun video for Strands Align!

"Clique Bait" by Pine Barons

Pine Barons played our 5th Annual HopSauce Festival last year and will return to play on June 1, 2019 as well!  We usually keep things fresh with completely new lineups, but due to an uncertain weather forecast as we kicked things off in 2018 we felt that more fans deserved to hear how good these guys are!  Make sure to grab your tickets and check out their new single Clique Bait! Clique Bait // Keeping Off The Road by Pine Barons    Read More...
