Sad Baxter
Sad Baxter
Nirvana. Nada Surf. The Muffs. These are bands Deezy and Alex love to talk about. Deezy loves to pronounce the phrase “hot dog” like “hort dorg”. Alex loves to eat pizza and talk about WaWa food markets. Deezy likes to make jokes about how pointless everything is, and Alex likes to laugh about it. Together, they form Sad Baxter from Nashville, TN. Described as heavy pop sludge, their songs keep coming back to one topic: sadness. Together they sing and scream, with words like “nothing” and “monster” rising from the dark, heavy heap. But no matter how much they might try to convince you that all hope is lost, Sad Baxter is a band that believes in something. They believe in failure. They believe in redemption. They believe in broken hearts. They believe in loud guitars. Most of all, they believe in each other. To see them play live is to step into a world created by Deezy and Alex, a world where heartbreak leads to hope and the drums drown out your doubts. They sing, they sweat, they say something awkward, and they’re back at it. The harmonies in their singing, the dynamics in their playing, it’s the musical equivalent of two people leaning on each other, worn out and weary, but walking together through the world. Sad Baxter is a band that makes intensity comforting and dissonant melodies catchy. All they ask is that you come as you are, sadness and all, and sing along.
Frances & The Foundation
Frances & The Foundation
Filled with the band’s signature rock ‘n’ roll guitars and Frances’ stunning vocals, the tongue-in-cheek track opens a dialogue about unwanted and uncomfortable situations women are placed in on a sometimes regular basis. - Substream Magazine
With a booming glam rock shuffle, arena sing-along melody, and swaggering badassery, Samantha Frances and her band make you take notice immediately. - Pop Matters
The grinding drum beat and melody provide a catharsis reminding you that no matter how pissed you are, you always have a choice to let go. - Ghettoblaster Magazine


Frances and the Foundation's influences derive from the world around them, but ultimately comes from the mind and soul of Samantha. Frances' relatable lyrics and versatile vocal styles has lead them to unique opportunities, including shows with punk veterans The GasLight Anthem and Grammy Award winning-rockers The Alabama Shakes.

That's My Kid
That's My Kid
Aside from the obvious, the band That’s My Kid, and a panda bear don’t share too many similarities with each other. One is a cute, furry, and endangered mammal that mostly resides in the Orient where bamboo chutes are it’s main food source. The other, however, is a rock and roll band whose diet is solely composed of distortion, crash hits, and all things that groove.

Now, entering their second year as a group, That’s My Kid, is making sure everyone knows they’re open for business. From hitting the road touring, gigging around Nashville, or just playing super loud at band practice, odds are you’ll be hearing from them pretty soon.

Forrest Arnold, guitar/vocals, and Abraham Fongnaly, drums/enthusiasm, met in middle school many moons ago in Murfreesboo, TN. It wasn’t until just a few years ago that they started putting some songs together. Shortly after these impromptu sessions had begun, they found the last piece of their musical puzzle, bassist and overall cool dude, Jashaun Smith.

Ever since, TMK has been busy making a name for themselves. That’s My Kid has made themselves regular guests at many different house show venues, and of course many regular licensed venues, as well, all across the southeast. Last April they released their eight-song debut This One which is available for free download on their website www.thatsmykidmusic.com, but their newest release was December’s EP The Dark Horse Sessions recorded in nearby Franklin, TN, also available for a free download on their facebook page.

That’s My Kid is knocking on the door. Nashville’s door, the music door, and most likely your bedroom door because they just wanna hang out. They’re gonna keep on keepin’ on, and pretty soon they’ll be rockin’ and rollin’ right to your front door.
Stereo Specter
Stereo Specter
The brainchild of local producer and multi-instrumentliast Jordan Dean, Stereo Specter is a project that’s been bubbling for at least a year (you might have heard some love on Lightning 100 already), but are really eyeing 2017 as broader launching ground, as Dean prepares to release a new lush, indie/electro-pop EP and a series of a stylish, sci-fi inspired accompanying videos.

Co-produced by Dean and Allen Parker (the duo also recently helmed an upcoming Hannah Aldridge album), with Jordan tackling every instrument but drums (which his cousin and longtime collaborator Garrett Dean played), Stereo Specter’s EP is set to feature some familiar guests like Brooke Waggoner, EZA, Kristen Rogers, and Kat Smo. Smo factors prominently in lead single “Soul Sucker,” and we’re thrilled to bring you a premiere of its dreamy, spaced out, colorful new video.

Directed by Gabriel Mozart Steven Abeyta, and conceived by Abeyta and Dean (they’ll produce video for every tack from the EP, all with a unique theme), “Soul Sucker” harbors a nostalgic, surreal style that perfectly captures the track’s aesthetic, while establishing its own engrossing narrative. Watch the video below, and keep an eye on more from Stereo Specter; we have a feeling this is going to be a big year for his exciting new project.
