Jasmin Kaset Record Release w/Ponychase and Rayland Baxter

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

As half of the “filth-country” duo Birdcloud, Jasmin Kaset makes music that turns backwardness so far around that it becomes a twisted kind of forward — the smartest stupid songs you’re likely to hear in Nashville. As herself, Kaset is more recognizably the daughter of a songwriter — Angela Kaset, also a collaborator — and the songs are smart and heartbreaking and vivid. On her new full-length Quiet Machine, Kaset pieces together unexpected imagery — “After the fire we had a see-through house / It was an ashtray of our things” — that floats above gently shifting dunes of piano, strings, the occasional ambling horn burst and, on one track, sweetly plunking marimba. “I’m gonna build a quiet machine / Gonna shut y’all up,” Kaset sings on the title track, and it’s true — there are moments on Machine that are nothing short of spellbinding. The cover for this show is $5, but $10 gets you admission plus the album on vinyl, mastered separately for the format by David Vandervelde.
