Festival season is nearly upon us. Dope fisheye pics from the Gulf beaches at Hangout would be the envy of all your Instagram followers but who are you kidding, you can’t afford that shit! Ohio’s got your back though and will satisfy your music wonderlust with some great veggie soup and clean laundry. Watch the Nelsonville Music Festival lineup videos and check out the artist highlights below:
Mothers: Folk-influenced indie rock led by a flutter-female vocalist. Listen to them while curled up next to a rainy window and brainstorm ways you can cut back on spending so you can see Mothers live.
Margaret Glaspy: If you didn’t get a chance to see her with Andrew Bird and the Lumineers this past winter, you’ve got to see her here. She has graced us with a beautiful song about two of the most confusing things in this life: ‘Emotions and Math.’
Twin Peaks: With over 3 million listens on Spotify, ‘Making Breakfast’ will have you stirring up omelets and jamming into the wee hours of the night.
Parquet Courts: forget the polished sound and queue up something with some jagged edges. Parquet Courts is the noisy indie rock group that is bringing 90s heavy guitar back into the limelight.
Doc Robinson: Columbus’ very own! Check out their Instagram to listen to their new single, ‘Slip Away,’ out today!
Michael Hurley: An American folk singer in his 70s who is also a cartoonist and painter. Sounds interesting, huh?
Cloud Nothings: Is there anything more cliche than an Ohio-native dropping out of college to pursue his lo-fi punk music passion? Probably not but the frontman made this grassroots entry into the scene work and soon after, Cloud Nothings was born.
