Nashville based artist Zeke Duhon has just released a new video for his single Always Is Now. The singer-songwriter recently played SXSW and has signed a publishing deal with Big Deal Music, whose roster includes Bad Suns, Sylvan Esso, Ray LaMontagne, St. Vincent, and Sleater-Kinney just to name a few. The alt-folk track is a longing atmospheric rumination with an addictingly cerebral rhythmic texture reminiscent of alt-J. Duhon's bio says it best: "It is easy to be carried away by his sweeping melodies, enchanted by the timbre of his voice and impressed by the architecture of his songs. His repertoire is a crackling hearth fire. In a time of chill, he’s here only to bring warmth." That imagery is perfectly captured in his beautifully cinematic video. This certainly won't be the last you'll be hearing of Zeke Duhon, but since "all we have is now, always is now" take a moment to cherish the talent in his latest release.
Brooklyn-based rockers, Inner Outlaws have released their April track off of their one-song-a-month project. We featured their March track The Mark and described it as an "amazing psych-rock/folk track that’s reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac but with a New York alt edge." On Suzanna, we get another taste of their 70s inspired vibe, but this time with a more stripped-down and euphoric Westernly twist on their psych-folk essence. The group reimagines the traditional-folk song Oh Susanna into a more bluesy-soul rock song with longing vocal lines and an edgy funk guitar breakdown to top it all off. Another impressive release by these eccentrically awesome folks, which you'll find out more from in the upcoming weeks here on IndieBeat.
