“New Coats” by Saintseneca, taken from the new album ‘Such Things’ is available now, Saintseneca is an American folk rock band from Columbus, Ohio, that was formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zac Little. The current band is made of Zac Little, Steve Ciolek, Jon Meador, Maryn Jones, and Matt O’Conke. They are known for their diverse range of instrumentation in both their recordings, as well as in their live performances. The band have released two EPs and three albums Last (2011), Dark Arc (2014) and Such Things (2015). The band utilizes a wide range of acoustic instrumentation (balalaika, mandolin, dulcimer, Turkish Baglama, floor percussion) with more contemporary elements such as synthesizers and electric guitars.

Yowler, is a solo project by Maryn Jones. Maryn Jones elicits chills in the context of All Dogs’ clangorous pop-punk and Saintseneca’s newfangled folk, but Yowler presents her purest essence: voice, guitar, and atmospheric swirls of noise that descend just when the heart starts to race. “The Offer” is an eerily intimate singer-songwriter record, one that almost feels like spying on someone else’s private moment of beauty. It transfers a trembling K Records sensibility to a Midwest metropolis that only feels haunted when you’re alone at night.

Two years after the critical success of her breakout second album, “Indestructible Machine”, Lydia Loveless emerges from the trenches of hometown Columbus, OH with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on Somewhere Else. While her previous album was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart” (Uncut), this one can’t be so quickly shoehorned into neat categorical cubbyholes. No, things are different this time around—Loveless and her band have collectively dismissed the genre blinders and sonic boundaries that come from playing it from a safe,familiar place.

Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination,and openness. Somewhere Else is more elemental than any of Loveless’s previous material; it’s about longing for the other, whether that’s something emotional, physical, or mental, all anchored by her arresting voice that sounds beyond her years. Creatively speaking, if Indestructible Machine was an all-night bender, Somewhere Else is the forlorn twilight of the next day, when that creeping nostalgia has you looking back for someone, something, or just… anything.

Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 23-year-old Lydia Loveless was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors.

When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to the city (Columbus, OH) and immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.
