Butch Walker's "21+" with Johnny Depp Premiering at Rolling Stone

Hear a new Butch Walker song called “21+” premiering at Rolling Stone today.

The tune features Johnny Depp on guitar, and Butch insists, “no, it’s not a Florida Georgia Line song about trying to get into a bar with a fake ID, cooler full of cold beer, pickup truck, girl, babe, angel, tight jeans, yada yada yada… It’s actually just a sad song with a total bummer of a lyric.”

Afraid of Ghosts is out February 3rd. Pre-order on iTunes for $7.99 and download three songs immediately – “Chrissie Hynde,” “Afraid of Ghosts,” and “21+”. CD/Vinyl Bundles available at Butch Walker’s webstore.

New T. Hardy Morris Song "Painted On Attitude" Premiering at Consequence of Sound + Tour with Jessica Lea Mayfield

T. Hardy Morris will close out 2014 with a string of tour dates, including a run with fellow traveller Jessica Lea Mayfield this November, and a special appearance with Deer Tick to ring in the New Year on Dec 31 at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY.

Morris is also releasing a new single, Painted on Attitude, giving fans a taste of the fierce rock band hitting the road and a sneak peek at what is to come sonically from the Athens, GA based musician as he completes work on his sophomore solo album, due in 2015 from Dangerbird Records.

Listen to “Painted On Attitude” at Consequence of Sound and purchase the song & bonus track “Without Fail” direct from Dangerbird Records.

A strangely complimentary mix of rollicking lo-fi southern rock pedal steel twang run through a grunge punk buzzsaw, “Painted On Attitude” showcases Morris’ snarling yet tuneful vocals on the sharp end of the blade. The single is a wry commentary on the lengths to which some go to “do something, oh so unique” by moving to big cities, only to “blend-in and pretend to be busy” while predictably getting swept up in whatever inescapable trend is currently affecting Brooklyn or Portland.

Morris’ sound is a departure as well as a continuation of the blissfully languid approach taken on much of his debut. Morris’ unique sonic lean is a product of his youthful affinity for “good” 90s rock, slamming head-first into his coveted Neil Young records and love of 70s Outlaw Country.

When Morris sat down to write for this new release, he drew upon two former songs in particular. “Share The Needle”, from Audition Tapes, and “Country Mile”, a song he’d contributed to Diamond Rugs’ self-titled debut. Each of those tracks featured a distinct push-and-pull dynamic that ended up bridging the gap between the quieter country leanings of Audition Tapes, and the more aggressive grunge of Morris’ other band Dead Confederate.

To achieve the sound found on the new record, Hardy amassed a contingent of players comprised of the ever trusty Matt “Pistol” Stoessel on pedal steel, Vaughan Lamb on bass, and Dead Confederate drummer Nick Sterchi.
