Young Buffalo

Drawing comparisons to Vampire Weekend and Local Natives, Young Buffalo spins an effervescent blend of synth-influenced pop. The Oxford-based quintet made its full-length debut with March’s House, a deceptively upbeat record about broken relationships and self-discovery. Infectious melodies give way to lyrical distress, all coated with a haze of summertime sheen. Released on Votiv Records, House was a three-year process ripe with musical awakening. Upheaval within the band temporarily called the album into question, but the Young Buffalo boys are back in the game.

The Band Avon Dale

When frontman Conrad Polz and guitarist Matt McCarter first met their freshman year at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, they didn’t plan on starting a band. Both members of the university’s wrestling team, Polz and McCarter spent their free time jamming at Polz’s house on Avondale Avenue. But when the duo caught the attention of drummer Alec Heist, they decided to get serious. They began playing gigs, and after graduation, the group made the move to Memphis. After adding bassist Andrew Allen to the line-up, the four-piece recorded it’s 2014 debut, Dress It Up, at Ardent Studios.

Mississippi Stomp 

For over two decades, the members of Mississippi Stomp have come together to cultivate the captivating sounds of the MidSouth. The group — comprised of five brothers and one sister — has played together and apart in a number of different acts before settling on its current incarnation. No longer interested in belting out well-known cover songs, Mississippi Stomp prides itself on creating an original mix of hill-country blues, rock ’n’ roll and gospel. Last year’s debut, Chickasaw Lodge, offers up a range of new and old produced by Jimbo Mathus and Ryan “Rando” Rogers.

Tiger High

Vocalist and guitarist Jake Vest is joined by his brother, Toby, on vocals and organ, Greg Roberson on drums and Leo Ramos on bass to form Tiger High. The psych pop four-piece kicked things off in 2010, and went on to release Myth Is This and Catacombs After Party on cassette in 2012. Now on its third LP, 2015’s Inside the Acid Coven, the band is hitting its stride. Recorded at Toby’s studio, High/Low Recording, the concept album weaves a multi-faceted narrative.
