David Nail once sang “God Bless America” at a World Series game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers, so it would have been forgivable if he had been in a bad mood Wednesday night.
After all, Nail is a Missouri native and his Cardinals had just suffered a blowout loss to the Boston Red Sox in Gaem 1 of the World Series minutes before he took the stage. If he was bothered, he did a good job of not letting it show.
Instead of moping, Nail introduced the Showbox at the Market crowd to his new look (a short-cropped haircut and looking svelte) and some new songs off his upcoming third album, “I’m a Fire.” (more…)

He might not be the country star that’s burning brightest these days, but David Nail has a low-key, polished and most importantly pleasing sound. Nail plays the Showbox at the Market Wednesday night in a show that should fill the void between smaller local acts and the huge names like Kenny Chesney that fill stadiums.
Nail has a handful of true hits, including his No. 1 single “Let It Rain,” and he’ll likely dust off that and other favorites from his 2008 debut “I’m About to Come Alive” and 2011′s “The Sound of a Million Dreams.”
He also has a single, “Whatever She’s Got,” working it’s way up the country charts right now. It’s the lead single off his new album, “I’m a Fire,” which is set to be released sometime in 2014. Expect Nail to try out some new tunes at the show.
Soundposts had a chance to talk with Nail before his show. Check out the Q&A after the jump.

It’s hard not to think that bands like Sleigh Bells represent the future of rock ’n’ roll.
Genre boundaries are more blurred than ever, and guitar-based music is finding itself increasingly phased out of the popular consciousness by rap, R&B and EDM. The Brooklyn-based duo of Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller has achieved near-mainstream success in this environment by working with non-rock influences. Hip-hop flavored beats and Krauss’ cooing, bubblegum-pop vocals share space with Miller’s meat-and-potatoes guitar riffs and a compressed-to-smithereens production style. (more…)
