Dr. John's 'Revolution,' Epic Ditch's 'Negative Increase,' Meadownoise's It's 4:00 [Fresh Tracks]



* As you know — because we told you — The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach produced the forthcoming Dr. John album at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound here in Nashville. While the album, titled Locked Down, won't be out until April 3, you can stream the horn- and Farfisa-loaded single "Revolution" right now via Rolling Stone. It's a fat slab of NOLA soul, and you can launch the RS player directly via this link — but be warned, it will make your window all re-sized and tiny. Worth it!

* We both previewed and reviewed Epic Ditch's 36-Hour EP release show. And for good reason; who doesn't like OG, shout-along, hardcore punk? But according to Ditch frontman John Davis — who you might also recognize as the main dude from '90s power-pop institutions Superdrag — there were a couple of tunes that didn't make it onto the EP. One of those tunes is called "Negative Increase," and you can stream all minute-and-50 of it below or download it for free via Epic Ditch's Soundcloud page. Negative increase! Negative increase!

* You guys familiar with local rock outfit and wrestling enthusiasts The Church of Cleanliness? Sure you are. Contributor Edd Hurt told you all about them back in December. Well, C of C member Matt Glassmeyer has a solo project called Meadownoise, and he's offering up a download of his five-song EP, It's 4:00, for free. Meadownoise is a bit less aggressive and a bit more thoughtful than Church of Cleanliness, like if Wayne Coyne took a weekend to make an extremely chilled-out EP with Grandaddy's Jason Lytle. Stream it below, and download the whole thing at Meadownoise's Bandcamp page. "Little William" is my jam, by the way. Hat-tip to We Own This Town for hipping us. WOTT, we love and respect you, and we promise to get you an invite to this year's Best of Nashville party.
