Deerhunter - Fading Frontier

After a countdown to 11 PM on Sunday popped up on Deehunter’s website, a lot of folks started to speculate a new record would be on the horizon. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!

The countdown ended in a Bradford Cox takeover of AM1690 here in Atlanta for two hours. He played a variety of tunes that included a new jam from Deerhunter called “Snakeskin” and announced that the new Deerhunter album, Fading Frontier, would be out in October on 4AD.

It was really cool. I feel like Bradford Cox, Deerhunter and the radio sort of brought us all together. It was fun. I’m a sap. Anyway, I hope the play list ends up online because you definitely should check it out. If you haven’t heard the new tune, you can check it out below along with a link and info about the album.

Listen + watch – Snakeskin

Fading Frontier
will be out on 10/16 via 4AD.

WHITE REAPER & THE PASS are in Atlanta tonight!

If you’re looking for something to do tonight in Atlanta, I suggest heading to the EARL for some excellent tunes brought to you by White Reaper and The Pass

Both bands hail from Louisville and create righteous jams that you will not want to miss. So, come on down to the EARL tonight and let’s party. 

Meat opens the show. Doors are at 8:30 PM, tickets are available at the door for $10. 

New music from The Answer Page

New music from The Answer Page

Okay, I know. I’ve started over like 12 times this year. I’m sorry. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to write more, specifically here, but in general. And read more, I’ve decided to follow Book Riot’s challenge. More on that later.

The real reason I’m here (besides to apologize for my absence) is to tell you about The Answer Page’s new and final album, The Nightmares of My Dearest Cardinal. This final installment of tracks focuses on the loss of singer/songwriter Nate McKee’s mother. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. Listen:

The Nightmares of My Dearest Cardinal is available on bandcamp, you can download it for free or name your own price. Nate says if you do pay for the album, the money will be used to press the record on vinyl.
