Premiere: “Natural” – The Haunted Head

Clemson, SC’s alternative project titled “The Haunted Head” remained mostly quiet throughout the summer after releasing a dreamy waltz tune titled “Trembling Rose” back in the chilly month of February.

Today the band, headed by Brant Duncan (The Elegance, Pine Tar Rage) has announced the premiere of a new song, simply called “Natural”.

In a somewhat stark change of timbre from their previous efforts, “Natural” greets the listener with a heavier sound and firm tempo that fans of Crazy Horse will appreciate while Duncan’s unique voice hovers near the point of subconsciousness.

Accompanying the new song is a video directed by WJAY.  Stream and share “Natural” via youtube and bandcamp links below.

Pine Tar Rage releases new track “46”

Ed Campbell (Episode 42 of the Ratio Podcast) is perhaps most known throughout the Southern region for his high octane bluegrass group ‘The Drovers Old Time Medicine Show‘ which recently celebrated over 30 years together.  Speaking from his porch with cigar in hand Campbell reiterates that  he’s “a rocker at heart” and that Pine Tar Rage serves as “an outlet for the rowdier compositions requiring electricity” – although some songs inevitably cross over between the two bands such as the tune “I Got a Headlight Out”.

On the other hand, PTR’s latest single titled ‘46‘ is unmistakably written to take on a more aggressive form of one such angry bull backing into an electric fence in the wrong corner of a palmetto pasture.  Campbell, being a Chicago Bears fan says the new song is a “homage to Mike Singletary and the 46 defensive play.”

Well you danced on the edge of a knife 
stilettos at midnight 
cold steel nothing less 
runs deep in your chest 

Snarl like a dog like Buddy and Mike 
see life through Singletary eyes 

Well all night howling at the moon 
on into the next afternoon 
well you say “life has made you old” 
well tear life a new asshole 

Snarl like a dog like Buddy and Mike 
see life through Singletary eyes 

Well ever since ’73 
you’ve been lost in a rock and roll dream 
well no man who does his best 
is left with any regrets 

Snarl like a dog like a Buddy and Mike 
see life through Singletary eyes
