Some weeks can be shittier than others, and all you need is to get lost in something bigger than yourself. That might come in the form of a healthy dose of musical escapism. The guys in North Carolina-based electro jammers Big Something can completely relate to that sentiment judging by their album Songs from the Middle of Nowhere. On "A Simple Vision," singer Nick MacDaniels croons, "Take me away / To outer space / To a simple place / That no one knows," while on "Big City Song," he sings, "Well, I'm not trying to put down the big city / All of them lights and cars, there's so damn many/ And it's overwhelming / the soul that I'm selling / The time is always wearing thin / Tomorrow's never gonna be the same again." Throw in Big Something's solid drum lines, funky synth, and groovy guitars, and you'll be transported to a better place in a hot second. Joining Big Something will be the six-piece ensemble Jimkata, who share MacDaniels and company's cosmic wisdom and catchy grooves. The Ithaca, N.Y.-based Jimkata is touring behind their latest release Die Digital, the follow-up to the well-received EP Ghosts and Killers. —Katie Kimsey
