Impose Premiered Kinjac's remix of River Whyless' "Stone"

The great country western epic soundtrack canons penned from Hazlewood, Morricone productions get tricked out and kicked up by the silver spurs of a next re-envisioning. The dusty vagabond trails of River Whyless’s original are given new drum machine appointments and a baroque score where the stems are set up and situated into sampling modules, and freshly arranged sequences.

Indie-Music Reviewed Carolinabound's 'Smoking Gun' EP and Loved it

Smith most definitely has a way with words, and uses them to vividly paint moving pictures to complement the musical collaboration of his fellow players on Smoking Gun. There is a potency and honesty to these songs, and while they may have been borne from traditional country and folk, the voice that has emerged is distinct and modern. It’s a fine line to walk but Smith does so with an ease that makes listening to this record comforting and truly enjoyable. Smoking Gun is a deceptively complex collection of tunes that displays a gifted lyricist to his full potential.

Carolinabound's 'Smoking Gun' Featured in NOOGA's "Four Records You Should Hear This Week"

The music of Carolinabound (AKA North Carolina-based singer-songwriter Chris Smith) draws a particular stillness from the grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Smith’s countrified folk tones and whiskey-soaked melodies connect to form a curious line of affecting rhythms and lyrical introspection. On his debut EP, “Smoking Gun,” he pulls from a rather long history of desperate stories of love, loss and the experiences that tie the two together. Bringing to mind scenes of front porch serenades and empty Southern roads, these songs conjure an immersive landscape where it becomes all too easy to lose your way.

The Big Takeover Premiered Kinjac's Haunting Remix of Carolinabound's "Chaos."

Kinjac is the eclectic electro-rock solo project of musician/producer Michael O’Shea (pictured). Originally from Asheville, North Carolina, and now based in Los Angeles, O’Shea produced Smoking Gun, the debut EP by Carolinabound, the stage moniker of Chris Smith, a singer-songwriter based in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

The original version of “Chaos,” which premiered today on Verbicide, is gentle, aching alt-country; this remix is a very different beast, as haunted as the house it was recorded in.
