Well, we made it through 2015. Was a hell of a year new music and 2016 shows no signs of slowing down. It is equal parts overwhelming and exhilarating to try and keep up these days, but we’re doing our best. For our first edition of Two For Tuesdays this year, here are a couple of singles that have us pining for their full-lengths to follow. And hey, if you’re in Brooklyn this evening, we’re spinning records at Doris in Bed-Stuy. Come hang! -J https://soundcloud.com/troubleinmind/doug-tuttle-falling-to-believe-trouble-in-mind-records Doug Tuttle-Falling to Believe One of my favorite shows I booked in Baltimore was for Dustin Wong, Quilt, and MMOSS, former songwriting vessel for Boston’s Doug Tuttle. I distinctly remember having my jaw on the floor that evening watching Tuttle lay down some seriously impressive guitar work. Overjoyed to find out he’d release his solo debut with Trouble In Mind years later, I’ve since relished in the sweet spot of psychedelia that Tuttle touches upon. ‘Falling to Believe,’ lead single from the forthcoming It Calls On Me LP is a stunning, laid-back number showcasing not only his guitar chops but the immense progress Tuttle has made as a songwriter between records. Calling it now, could be a best of 2016. It Calls On Me is out Feb 19th via Trouble In Mind. https://soundcloud.com/woodsist/cian-nugent-lost-your-way Cian Nugent-Lost Your Way It is beyond me how or why I slept on Cian Nugent for as long as I have. Lucky for me, Woodsist is always there to let me know what’s up. The Irish singer-songwriter is poised to release Night Fiction at the top of the year and the second single ‘Lost Your Way’ has us particularly excited. Albeit his first attempt at a ‘singing record,’ Nugent comes across as a veteran. Choosing to push vocals to the forefront rather than bury in reverb, his modest delivery sits beautifully atop unprecedented guitar playing locked in tightly with a tremendous rhythm section. Going to be very disappointed if there is not a Brooklyn stop of this tour. Night Fiction is out January 29th.
