Music News: Ruby Amanfu, Milktooth, Cherub, and k.s. Rhoads

It's only Tuesday and this week is already full of new stuff to check out. There's a lot to hear, so we've condensed it all into a quick and clickable blog post for easy consumption:

Ruby Amanfu has teamed up with Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard to create a painfully beautiful cover of Memphis Minnie's "When My Man Comes Home." Recorded to add to the Third Man Records Blue Series arsenal, this song as well as a cover of "I Wonder," originally by Rodriguez, will be available on vinyl March 12th. In the meantime, the song is available to stream (on repeat) over on the Entertainment Weekly website.

For some reason, electro-pop duo Cherub are giving their fantastic 100 Bottles EP away for free. Featuring six tracks of experimental neo-soul, this EP does not miss a beat. Catch the debut and stream over on This Song Is Sick or buy the EP on iTunes.

Currently getting the new album release treatment is known solo artist and renown local collaborator, k.s. Rhoads. Available today, The Wilderness will celebrate its release alongside a myriad of local talent on March 8th at 3rd & Lindsley. Until then, stream the album on Spotify or on Spinner.

Lastly, Milktooth have released the fifth episode of their ongoing "Stay At Home America" covers series. This time, the band tackles "Eyes That Say I Love You," from Beck's Song Reader. The song and video feature tons of local talent, such as Alanna Quinn-Broadus of Alanna Royale, Daniel Ellsworth of Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes, Lindsay Johns of NUDITY, Regan Freeman, and Levi Weaver. Catch it here:

   

Cherub Releases Video for "Monagamy'

In their new video for "Monogamy," fittingly released late last night, Cherub fill a hotel room with fruit and purple balloons to tag-team romance a cougar before hitting the town to ride around real slow. The clip was directed by aaronisnotcool and Sam Pattillo.

Cherub will take the stage again in Nashville tomorrow night, playing night two of the Mercy Lounge's 10th anniversary party.

   

Mercy Lounge Announces Lineup for 10th Anniversary Party

Next Friday and Saturday nights, on January 11th and 12th, Mercy Lounge will celebrate its 10th birthday in true Cannery Row fashion, throwing a party that will span all three venues. On Friday night, you can catch JEFF the Brotherhood, Tristen, Wild Cub, and RiCHiE, and on Saturday, performers will include Cherub, Ravello, The Weeks, and Machines Are People Too. With three stages to fill, more performers will be announced within the coming week via Twitter and Facebook.

If you're broke or just the type to arrive empty handed at parties, Mercy Lounge has your cover covered. On both nights, the first 250 people through the door will get in for free. After that, tickets are $10 for one night or $15 for both and can be purchased here (for night one), here (for night two), or at Grimey's New and Preloved Music, The Groove Record Shop, and Parlour & Juke Salon.

In addition to the full bars in Mercy Lounge, Cannery Ballroom, and the High Watt, both shows are presented in part by Yuengling and Brooklyn Brewery.
