Exclusive Spin: Prom Queen’s ‘Blonde’ & interview with Leeni Ramadan

Exclusive Spin: Prom Queen’s ‘Blonde’ & interview with Leeni Ramadan

Prom Queen’s upcoming album, Doom-Wop, is a continuation of the sound the Seattle group has honed on their previous two releases. However, per the band, it’s different, and more of an album that “celebrates the ensemble that we’ve built over the last few years.” That camaraderie has been “built from the ground up,” they state, and it really shows. If you’ve enjoyed the darkly mysterious versions of the girl-group sound Prom Queen has explored on Night Sound and Midnight Veil, then you’ll likely adore Doom-Wop, an album to which I’ve returned again and again since it showed up in my inbox a couple of weeks ago.

Recommending Nikki Lane’s “Jackpot” at Modern Vinyl

nikki lane
For every discussion about how Sturgill Simpson and Chris Stapleton are bringing energy and fervor back to country music, while making it “real” again, I can’t help but feel like Nikki Lane is getting shunted to the side. She’s been kicking out albums since her 2011 debut, Walk of Shame, a full three years prior to Simpson’s debut. The title track’s liberated, feminist embrace of the same topics Simpson would get praise for on Metamodern Sounds in Country Music‘s “Life of Sin” three years later should give Lane the same acclaim as her male peers, but for some reason, she’s been quietly relegated to the background when discussion of taking back Nashville comes around.

Premiere of Hipshot Killer’s Too Much Rock single at the Pitch

tmr-hsk-cover
For the fifth entry in Too Much Rock's singles series, label head Sid Sowder chose Kansas City's Hipshot Killer to follow the format of original A-side, cover-song B-side. The KC trio has answered with a brilliantly vibrant new song, "All the Hell in the World," which sums up the band's ability to create emotionally powerful music.
