Track: D. Watusi - Brother & Sister
By Zach Braun
I was way pumped when The Paperhead came through town on tour a few weeks ago, but I ended up getting my mind blown by openers D. Watusi, another in the long line of killer bands coming out of Nashville. They play straight-up, no bullshit trashy garage rock with some seriously accomplished bluesy guitar riffs, the kind of music that reaffirms your faith in a pretty crowded genre. D. Watusi have a new LP coming out in August via Nashville’s Dead called Dark Party and this is the first single. Stream it below and pick up the limited 7” with a sweet Joy Division cover on the flip direct from Nashville’s Dead.

2011 Kinks Tribute Band Release Wrap-Up
Yeah, that’s quite a title, but as promised I have put a list together of some of the awesome releases put out in 2011 by the bands and musicians on the upcoming Kinks tribute because I wanted to remain unbiased on the site’s Favorites of 2011 Lists. Below each release is also a link directing you to get each record or tape, but I highly recommend getting it straight from the band if they happen to be playing in a town near you. There’s also plenty of time to still donate to our Kickstarter. There are less than 25 days left!!!

Here’s another band from the Music City USA scene. (Nashville of course!) This group contains employees of Jack White’s Third Man Records, and of Nashville’s Dead, another local label.
If you’re a fan of psychedelic rock and funky sitars, please tune in and treat your eardrums!
