The year of our lord, Two Thousand Tennessee, is the year that Nashville's non-country side takes over the boom box and teaches the world how to party, 615-style. As Brentwood-born Ke$ha terrorizes the top of the charts, deep in the indie underground local boogie boys Tim Chad & Sherry are ready to hang a sign that reads "Don't Disturb This Groove" on the sweater-vest-and-glasses set's collective doorknob with their album Baby We Can Work It Out.

Birthed from the dome of drummer (and former Silver Jew) Brian Kotzur and featuring familiar sidemen Loney Jon Hutchins and William Tyler, Tim Chad & Sherry throw lightning bolts of dadaist funk-rock like Zeus in a leisure suit on a lazy summer afternoon. From the strings-and-drum-machine groove of "Rocket Tonight" to the Santo-and-Johnny-snort-some-Xanax slack-key vibe of "This Could Be Our Song," Baby We Can Work It Out is a quiet storm, rumbling thunder on a distant horizon.

TC & S are unapologetic in their affection for the smoothed-out sounds of the '70s, but they never take the detour into parody that so many acts of their ilk get caught up in — no irony here, just a bunch of folks who understand the inherent awesomeness of Joe Walsh and Barry White. Or maybe it's a combination Atomic Rooster and The Commodores — either way, you can hear a giant record collection's worth of influences creeping through every bar, culling only the finest grooves for presentation to the lucky listener. There's even one point that sounds like Roast Fish, Colli Weed & Corn Bread-era Lee Perry dubbing Steely Dan — it's some serious stuff right there.

But this isn't your average space-y Nashville dance band — nope, these kids are going somewhere! They're off to this year's U.K. installment of All Tomorrow's Parties, one of the world's pre-eminent music festivals. Hand-picked by festival curators Pavement after throwing down the serious party jams at Bob Nastanovich's much ballyhooed wedding party/Pavement non-reunion last fall, TC & S find themselves stepping out from their relative Music City obscurity to share a stage with art-rock legends like Faust, The Fall and Mission of Burma. If the Top 40 charts are any indication of the world's readiness for Nashville party grooves, you can expect to hear Tim Chad & Sherry at all the hippest barbecues this summer.

If Maroon 5 made us want to dance, instead of use a shotgun to repaint our bedroom walls with bits of our own brains, they'd be called Tim Chad and Sherry. The band raised the party-vibe to a fevered pitch with enough smooth jamz and white neo-soul to give us multiples worthy of a Meg Ryan coffee shop scene. All before whipping us into a frenzy with their take on Ike and Tina's version of "Proud Mary"

Bio

Fresh off an appearance at All Tomorrow's Parties in Minehead, England with friends, Pavement, Tim Chad and Sherry is busy this summer sharing their debut, studio LP, "Baby We Can Work It Out" with the world. What started as a self recorded project for fun, Tim Chad and Sherry took further root when Pavement drummer, Bob Nastanovich , released Tim Chad and Sherry's debut, diy ep. It was sold during Silver Jews' inaugural tour and is now out of print. Songwriter, Brian Kotzur, played drums for Silver Jews and was an influential part of their latter albums. When the Jews halted the band in early '09, Kotzur went back to work finishing "Baby We Can Work It Out" in early '10. Brian Kotzur can be seen in Harmony Korine's latest work, "Trash Humpers," as well as the popular Budweiser ad campaign in Europe "True Dedication."
