    Gold Connections

    Indie Rock

    Gold Connections' Will Marsh went to school with Car Seat Headrest's Will Toledo at the College Of William & Mary, where longtime friend Toledo produced and recorded Marsh's debut S/T EP last year on Fat Possum Records. Through support tours with Car Seat Headrest, opener slots with bands such as The Districts, Futurebirds, Soccer Mommy and even a tour through Europe culminating with a showing at the esteemed Primavera Club festival, Will Marsh & Gold Connections have built a solid foundation for their upcoming full length effort, Popular Fiction, which was engineered and produced at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium in North Carolina. The new LP, Popular Fiction is a steady piece of reassurance and we are thrilled to hear how far Will Marsh has come. And we can see, with total clarity, just how far he can go.

    The Prescriptions

    Alternative

    For Birmingham native Hays Ragsdale, songwriting became second nature early on, however it was a creative outlet that he mostly kept to himself. His outlook changed, however, after moving to Nashville in the fall of 2014, when family friend and Nashville music veteran Chas Williams convinced him that his songs had an audience. So Hays decided to seek out a group of experienced musicians and naturally turned to fellow Nashville transplants formerly involved in Birmingham's tight-knit music community. Luckily, he found some familiar faces: Longtime friend and bassist Parker McAnnally was recruited first, who soon suggested accomplished guitarist Jack Thomason and his college classmate, Houston-raised drummer John Wood. All drawn to the musical environment in Nashville for similar reasons, the four-piece quickly discovered a common vision and formed The Prescriptions. 

    While The Prescriptions may come by their Southern style of narrative storytelling honestly, they refuse to rest on the laurels of their musical heritage. Songs like “She Is Waiting” prove that they’re just as comfortable launching into a heavy, alt-country breakdown as they are a world-weary lyrical stream of consciousness. The Prescriptions channel a broad range of influences, from the aching, unaffected honesty of ‘70s folk titans like Neil Young, to the guitar-driven melodies of The Strokes’ early recordings and the experimental energy of Wilco.

    The band is set to start recording their first full length album at the legendary Sound Emporium Studios this spring. It’s clear that The Prescriptions are somewhat of a rarity in the modern musical landscape: a group of close friends that are more concerned with pushing each other’s creative boundaries rather than pushing a sound you’ve heard before. - Hilli Levin
