Mark Fredson, "Bitchin Summer"

Mark Fredson, formerly of the Lonely H, is the kind of guy that helps keep Nashville's independent creative community thriving: a frequent face on the scene for years, his songs have been covered by Margo Price (she offered a version of his "How the Mighty Have Fallen" on her debut LP, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, and recently played the tune at the Ryman) and he's sung with the likes of Caitlin Rose. Now Fredson is prepping a solo LP, with first single "Bitchin Summer" offering a taste of delicious Beach Boys-gone-synth vibes for anyone who wants to ditch their desk jobs, light a joint and just have a bitchin time – or at least pretend to for these 3 minutes and 56 seconds.
