Dan Layus, primarily known as the frontman of the critically acclaimed band Augustana,released his debut album, Dangerous Things.

Dangerous Things spans influences from Hank Williams to Tom Waits, from Dwight Yoakam to Woody Guthrie. The album was recorded in Nashville at SouthxSea Studios with minimal production. The lyrics are about life’s struggles and its simple joys, and harmonies are provided by Muscle Shoals’ own Secret Sisters.

Something to Say, the second EP from forward-thinking folk rocker Reuben Bidez, is an analog album for the digital age. Raw and reflective, it holds a mirror to the machines that make the modern world tick, from politics to sexual appetites to social media. Along the way, Bidez shows the full range not only of his voice - an elastic instrument, with an upper register and rich vibrato that have earned comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Roy Orbison - but of his songwriting chops, too.

He’s a tongue-in-cheek rabble rouser on the EP’s title track, urging America’s wannabe movers-and-shakers to stop “grandstanding from your sofa” and, instead, take a real stand. “Nothing says ‘revolution’ like clogging up the interstate,” he sings during the final verse, while electric guitars, 12-string acoustics, and vintage keyboards chime in the background. Fellow Nashvillian Molly Parden makes an appearance on “What You Really Wanted,” a rainy-day duet whose harmonies nod to Fleetwood Mac. Later, Bidez turns up the tempo and the volume on “Bad Name,” the fiercest rock song he’s ever released.
