from THE NASHVILLE SCENE-
HANDS DOWN EUGENE The new album by Hands Down Eugene, Madison, picks up where the band, led by Ole Mossy Face bassist Matt Moody, left off on their self-released EP, Full Blast. Several songs from that record find themselves slightly reworked here, and the album builds on and refines Full Blast’s sound. Madison opens with a woman’s voice, sounding like one of those stray broadcasts that still float through outer space; through the crackle and static, she announces: “These are events in a dream.” Her disembodied voice quickly gives way to the opening track, which sets the tone for the album with its drowsy chords, loping bass line and psychedelia. Over the album’s 13 tracks, there is a prevailing mood of melancholy, a kind of road-weariness that circles back on the heightened nostalgia of travel (Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago and Chattanooga all get references). As a way of demonstrating the aliveness and wellness of our local rock scene, also performing are local power-pop stalwarts The Carter Administration (all of whom appear on Madison) and Murfreesboro’s Ghostfinger, who may be the South’s answer to the Eagles of Death Metal.
