    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

    The By Gods

    Pop

    Nashville-based band The By Gods — originally George Pauley (vocals, guitar) and Tye Hammonds (drums) — breed hook-laden, roll-your-windows-down rock & roll, respectfully reminiscent of the band’s early to mid-90’s alternative predecessors.
    With The By Gods, Hammonds and Pauley are focused on the difficult art of keeping it simple, and making the music they love. "We're really hedonistic when it comes to most things with The By Gods." Hammonds explains, "As long as we're into it, we think that other people will be too."
    The band’s new album G​et On Feelings​is chock-full of rock & roll spark, assembled perfectly with intelligent and, most importantly, intoxicating melodies. With it, the band grows from a duo into a trio, thanks to the addition of bassist Natalie Pauley. Together, The By Gods hit their full-stride from the opening track and, downstrokes-be-damned, continue delivering their fuzz-guitar-laden youthful energy in crystal-clear high fidelity on “Miss It” and “On The Radio.” Pauley’s guitar work buzzes with maturity and exploration, from the appropriately off-kilter chorus chords of “My Way,” to the raucous bridge riff in “I Really Don’t Care.”
    T h e n e w r e c o r d , l i k e t h e i r p r e v i o u s r e l e a s e ​I D o n ' t C a r e W h o B e l i e v e s M e ... , ​w a s r e c o r d e d b y Carl Amburn (Riddle Of Steel, Traindodge, Self-Evident, Town Portal), at his Oklahoma barn studio, The Mousetrap. Out of that barn, a most-impressive beast of a full-length has germinated and is ready to devour the planet.
    You see, eventually The By Gods’ music will help put an end to war and poverty. It will align the planets and bring them into universal harmony. Allowing meaningful contact with all forms of life, from extra terrestrials to common household pets...and, it's excellent for dancing.
