This morning Scene SC dropped their 2017 Sampler, with 20 new songs from artists based in South Carolina, including many Charleston bands that you might have seen featured on Extra Chill. Scene SC has been out here promoting music in South Carolina since way back in 2008, and they have since become a very prominent figure in the South Carolina music scene. This year they are helping out with both Freeway Music Festival and the Summer Shindig, both featuring artists who have appeared on previous or current Scene SC Samplers. In 2010 they released Volume 1 of the Scene SC Sampler, the first installment in what has become a yearly tradition. This year’s installment is quite possibly the best one yet.
The 2017 Scene SC Sampler features Jenna Desmond of SUSTO making her solo debut, an awesome new song from Secret Guest, new Heyrocco, Human Resources, She Returns From War, The High Divers and many more. There are also some tracks that have been released in the past couple of months from bands like Atlas Road Crew, Daddy’s Beemer, and Beach Tiger. You’ll even find a new Brave Baby track called “Difficulture” that sounds a lot different from the rest of their stuff, with a punk rock influence and hints at commentary on the recent controversy surrounding their former label, Hearts & Plugs.
