BSC is proud to expand its mission and introduce ILTM – a new weekly video series filmed in culturally relevant spaces. I Listen to Memphis is about Memphis music today, the musicians who make it, and the places and culture that fuel it. We are here to inform, inspire, and share the best of Memphis music.
Want an early look at next week’s video before anyone else? Join ILTM!
Dirty Streets was birthed in DeSoto County, a suburb of Memphis that sits halfway between Beale St. and the North Mississippi hill country. Good schools, clean fast food restaurants, and churches on every corner and good times are just a 10 minute drive in either direction. The boys from the ‘burbs like to take that Memphis sound and that hill country sound, take them into their parents’ garages, mash it all together, combine what’s in the air around them with the far away sounds of FM Radio and who knows what else. Think: Big Star, The Box Tops, Moloch, etc. This tune, Loving Man, is on Dirty Streets’ brand new record, dropping September 14th, titled “Distractions.”
Kelley Anderson, of Crystal Shrine and founding darling of Those Darlins, purchased a double shotgun house surrounded by vacant lots right off of Crump Blvd. last year. The Beach House has a lowfi, rock show feel with each abandoned room thematically designed.
