1. Melancholy dreams: Wild Nothing's lush sound has one foot in synth-driven chillwave and another in the ethereal guitars of modern dream pop. The band's Thursday, Sept. 27 appearance at The Grey Eagle is sure to please fans of both genres.

2. A league of their own: The ever-present falsetto of Woods' Jeremy Earl — and the band's meanderings into free-form folk rock — draw easy comparisons to Neil Young. But Woods' ongoing experiment in sunny pop and experimental psych folk occupies a singular place in modern rock 'n' roll. Catch the band's improv-friendly live show on Friday, Sept. 28, when Woods opens for The Walkmen at The Orange Peel.

3. Behind the mic: Asheville FM hosts dozens of weekly shows that run the gamut of musical styles and tastes (you name it, they've got it). But don't take our word for; take theirs. Xpress brings you this new weekly feature — direct from the DJs — highlighting a few of the station's stellar offerings.

Turn it up, pour a drink, dance in front of your mirror: This is She-Bop Radio, a quirky pop culture show where music meets magical musings on life, love and juicy gossip. Your life's about to get funky as we mix topics like relationships, sex and celebrity scandals with the musical stylings of artists like Madonna, Michael Jackson and Boys II Men. Of course She-Bop always throws in a few calls from friends around America and interviews with local artists and interesting folks in Asheville as well. So join JaimeLeigh Weidenmiller Wednesdays from 7-8pm and feel what you want to feel … thrills, chills, and eargasms.
