Two very different Upstate bands have released new singles recently.
“Hold On” is a grinding, down-and-dirty hard rocker with an addictive chorus, barbed-wire riffs and rippling Hammond organ.
The centerpiece of her second Christmas album is a stunning medley of holiday favorites, including “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “Angels We have Heard on High” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”
“You can’t rush potatoes,” says Upstate singer-songwriter-guitarist Darby Wilcox. “They’re ready when they’re ready.”
It may be a little early to make comparisons, but “Something in the Water,” the debut album by Jake Ybarra, has the songs to at least start that conversation.
In a way, it makes perfect sense that the Greenville duo Valentine Wolfe will play at the Sigal Music Museum Nov. 30.
Early in October, Dylan Scott released a new six-track EP called “I’ll Be a Bartender.”
The Headhunters, which had been around in one form or another since 1968, crashed the country charts with “Dumas Walker” in 1990.
If you’re a longtime fan, you should probably be ready for a bit of a musical curveball when the band takes the stage at the Radio Room in Greenville on Nov. 2.

It makes sense that the popular rock band Needtobreathe would feel at home in the Upstate.
Columbia folk singer Danielle Howle, who has a new album out, opens for the Indigo Girls at the Peace Center on Oct. 12.
The Greenville Country Music Fest is Oct. 20-22.
Illiterate Light, a duo from Harrisonburg, Virginia, will bring a combination of rich electric rock and stripped-down acoustic to Greenville.
The tour features three of the biggest country stars of the 1990s.
