Have you guys heard of Atlanta-based Del Venicci? Because they’re really awesome and they have a new EP coming out on the 25th via Atlanta-based label Prima Satisfaction. The forthcoming EP is titled Haunted Hall and you can check out the first single, “Teenage Swingers,” below.
And be sure to head over to the 529 on Monday, Feb. 17th. They’ll be there along with Bleeding Rainbow, Hunters, and Sioux City Sue.
We’re a month into 2014 and I’ve finally gotten around to compiling a list of albums I loved in 2013. My life changed quite a bit last year and I wasn’t as connected to new music as I had been in the past or wanted to be. But that’s okay. I think change is good and I’m excited for what 2014 will bring. So, here we go.
This list wasn’t really hard to make. These 11 albums were on constant rotation throughout the year and it was pretty much love at first listen for every single one. So, without further ado and in no particular order, here are my favorites of 2013.
You guys should go to the EARL on Monday, February 3rd because Jordan Lee AKA Mutual Benefit is going to be there singing is gorgeous music. Suno Deko is also going to be there and so is Tantrum. Seriously, do not miss this. Just don’t.
Listen to a couple of tunes from Love’s Crushing Diamond below. It was one of my favorites of 2013. It’s an amazingly beautiful album. And I’ll see you at the show!
It’s Thursday. Friday Eve. It’s getting ridiculously close to Christmas, too, and Atlanta’s Places has a very special treat for us all. It’s a dreamy new gem recorded at The Cottage called “Graves” and I guarantee you’ll listen to it a dozen times in a row.
Places will be at the EARL tonight with On Holiday, RRest and Gold-Bears. It’s $5, doors at 8:30 pm.
I have so many great things to tell you about, but I’m going to start here.
Seattle-based Red Alder, Kelsie Brown’s solo project, released this track yesterday on Bandcamp. It’s a hauntingly gorgeous tune that fits nicely with winter and December and everything about this time of year. Listen for yourself below and download it for free here.
Austin babes, Love Inks have a new record coming out tomorrow on Monofonus Press. It’s called Generation Club. It’s dreamy and gorgeous. You can stream the whole thing on SPIN if you don’t believe me. Watch the video for “Outta Sight” below.
Here’s an order LINK, you’re going to want to do that.
Atlanta, they’ll be here on Tuesday, November 5th at the best venue in town. Check out all of their upcoming dates here.
My listens probably make up a good bit of the play count on this stunning new tune from Kevin Morby (Woods, The Babies). “Miles, Miles, Miles” is the first single off the songwriter’s forthcoming solo debut, Harlem River. It’s set for a November 26th release on Woodsist.
There’s something about the honesty in Morby’s voice that makes this track so brilliant. That and the lyrics. You just have to listen, check it out below.
