The Doc Marshalls’ front man, Nick Beaudoing, recently settled in Nashville armed with an album that reeks of Brooklyn, his former home.  Whereas previous releases evoked a humid musical landscape along the Texas-Louisiana border, 2012’s “Look Out, Compadre,” shed the honky-tonk and Cajun two-steps in favor of crooked, shimmering folk reminiscent of Bonnie Prince Billy, A.A. Bondy, and Phosphorescent. Read more

IsWhat?!

MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio; 513-381-6687
FREE, 21-and-up, 10pm

The Cincinnati duo probably knew taking the name Iswhat?! would make people ask lots of questions over their chosen name. And I have to admit that the group remains an enigma in this era of sharply defined boundaries.

A group that changes in shape, orbiting around core musicians (founders / players) MC Napoleon Maddox and saxophonist Jack Walker, Iswhat?! has been around since the mid-1990s. Their first album “You figure it out” (2004) – a sort of a spacio-temporal rendezvous between Charles Mingus and Public Enemy in a graffiti covered Harlem basement in Harlem – intrigued jazz fans aficionados as well as the hip-hop community.

Southgate House Revival (lounge), 111 E 6th St, Newport, KY

Shantel Leitner is a soulful Midwesterner brought up on the plains of a small, idyllic town in Kansas. She began singing at a small age, following in the foot steps of her grandfather, mother, & aunt who comprised a family country/western band. Shantel shows an affinity for a soul sensibility that melds itself with a pop/folk likability. Where there is musical sincerity, Shantel finds the most truth & hungers to connect with the listener. Shantel’s style could best be described as pop/folk infused with a bit of soul as her voice floats above her guitar, harkening a raw quality reminiscent of an old blues record. Read more
