Description:

As the last of the Pistol Annies to release her own album, Angaleena Presley wasn’t a superstar on the level of Miranda Lambert, nor was she quite the Music City survivor like Ashley Monroe. Instead, she was a behind-the-scenes songwriter who received a boost once she became part of the Annies. Once the group’s 2011 debut Hell on Heels turned into a success, it was a matter of time before Presley received her own record contract, which she did in 2014, when she released American Middle Class. By the time that album came out in the fall of 2014, Presley had been working away in Nashville for the better part of 15 years. A native of Martin County, Kentucky, where she was born to a school teacher mother and coal miner father, Presley began playing music as a teenager but didn’t pursue it seriously until she left Eastern Kentucky University. She moved to Nashville in 2000, landing a publishing deal not long afterward. It took her a while to land songs on records, but they started to come toward the end of the decade, with “Knocked Up” appearing on Heidi Newfield’s 2008 LP What Am I Waiting For? and “Look It Up” showing up on Ashton Shepherd’s 2011 album Where Country Grows. Her real break, though, was meeting Ashley Monroe, a singer/songwriter who was with the same publisher and brought Presley to the attention of Miranda Lambert. The trio formed Pistol Annies in 2011 and collaborated on the songs that became their debut Hell on Heels. A gold success in the U.S., the record generated a 2013 sequel called Annie Up, a record that didn’t do quite as well as the debut but still performed respectably. A year after Annie Up, Presley finally released her long-awaited debut American Middle Class on Slate Creek; it debuted at 29 on the U.S. country charts. Three years later, Presley released Wrangled, her second solo album featuring cameos by Morgane Stapleton and Yelawolf, plus songs co-written by Chris Stapleton and Guy Clark. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Description:

Keansburg, New Jersey drummer Chris LoPorto formed the upbeat indie rock quartet Can’t Swim in 2015, moving away from the role of drummer he’d played in countless bands, instead trying out the position of lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter in his new project. The band was filled out by friends Danny Rico on drums, bassist Greg McDevitt, and second guitarist Mike Sanchez, breathing life into LoPorto’s anthemic emo-pop compositions. Can’t Swim worked on recordings before playing live and quickly delivered their debut EP, Death Deserves a Name, in early 2016. Much of the year was spent on tour, and after playing the songs in a live setting, the bandmembers realized their shows needed more guitar to convey the intensity of their recordings. Rico switched to third guitarist and Andrea Morgan took over as drummer. The band released its first full-length, Fail You Again, in March of 2017. ~ Fred Thomas
