Adia Victoria’s musical introduction to the world came in the form of 3 tracks released over 18 months – Stuck In The South, Sea of Sand, and Howlin’ Shame. Her mixture of gothic country blues, eerie vocals, righteous anger and some thrilling guitar riffs immediately set her apart from the usual crowd.

Her newest track is Dope Queen Blues, written about her time in Atlanta during her early 20s – carefree, wild and vice ridden – and we have the lyric video for you below. Great stuff.

Adia Victoria’s stark, confrontational tales of the south call to mind the spirit of the greats – Billie Holiday, Woody Guthrie, the Carter Family and more, but are imbued with an eerie sense of foreboding and vehement, sometimes venomous, lyrics.

Following a recent tour with MM faves Hurray For The Riff Raff, she has now shared the potent Howlin’ Shame, which glows with the same fiery intensity as her brilliant debut Stuck In The South.

Have a listen.

Adia Victoria - Sea Of Sand

Sea Of Sand is the follow up to Adia Victoria’s excellent, and haunting, gothic country of Stuck In The South that we posted last year, and which marked her out as something rather special.

This new track was written in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and is a reflection on life experiences and how much they define us, and is another wonderful slice of primitive, southern country that is as bold as it is stark.

Have a listen.

New Songs New Bands New StuffFollowing on from yesterday’s round-up of all things new and shiny in the MM inbox, here is a second instalment for your listening edification.

First up are Philadelphia’s cult indie favourites Literature, who have shared New Jacket, another slice of master-crafted indiepop from their upcoming album, Chorus. Larkin Poe’s sister duo Rebecca and Megan Lovell, are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allen Poe. They celebrate that unique genealogy and their own eccentricities with their debut full-length album, Kin, from which we have the excellent Crown of Fire.

Triptides have a new 7″ single release on offer, A side Clementine is a giddy rush of classic psych-pop jangle, while the new 7″ from The Grand Rapids is heavier, though equally skilfully executed psychedelic rock. Lead track Copper Girl is a tale of obtaining the unobtainable; with hints of The Byrds and The Brian Jonestown Massacre as brawling vocals and 80s post punk dramatics shines amongst the droning wall of guitars, and bright solos burn over the lumbering beats.

Winter In Moscow are a London based four piece indie rock act taking influences from Guided by Voices, Wire, The Wedding Present, and other college/garage rock acts. Their debut EP can be downloaded for free from Bandcamp here, and opening track is the full on driving rocker, The Good Clean Fun Police. Meanwhile, blending shades of blues, soul and roots music, Americana rockers Buffalo Stack have recently released their new single Dangerous.

Spooky Wagons describe themselves as a five piece sunshine-folk-indie-pop band and the good natured, uptempo Seatbelts from debut EP All Again Tomorrow certainly bears out the description and Soft Power, taken from LVL UP’s forthcoming long player Hoodwink’d is a brilliant slice of gritty lo-fi rock drawing on influences from 90s indie rock, 80s new wave and 70s power pop.

LA punks Girl Tears have signed to Captured Tracks’ sister label Sinderlyn. Candy Darling will be their first single for the label. And lastly, we have the brilliant haunting, Southern Gothica of  Adia Victoria’s first-ever single Stuck In The South, an absolute gem.
