Listen :: Meg Webb – If You Ever (Come Back to Me) Meg Webb’s new tune, “If You Ever (Come Back to Me),” is a super fun gem that you’re definitely going to fall in love with. This playful track is a taste of what’s to come, Meg will be releasing a new album called Beauteous Maximus on Christmas Day via Lolipop Records. And keep an eye out for big plans in November, more on that later.
Listen :: Kevin Morby – Parade I love, love Kevin Morby‘s voice. And here’s a new one to make me fall in love all over again. It’s called “Parade” and you can find it on his forthcoming LP, Still Life, out today on Woodsist.
Watch :: Small Reactions – “Saint in Robes” Small Reactions is a band from Atlanta. They’re the best dudes and they make the best music. Check out this video for “Saints in Robes,” a track off their forthcoming record, Similar Phantoms. You can preorder it via their bandcamp.
Nico of Places sent me this track, “Peaceful Conditions,” on Friday. It’s a new jam their playing at their live shows, which by the way there’s one tomorrow at The Cottage in East Atlanta, but we can talk about that later. Right now, you should listen to this track.
The fuzzy vocals are consumed by the metallic beats being tossed around, while the guitar soars around in the background. And if even though I’m making it sound somewhat disconnected in my description, these sounds actually come together quite brilliantly. Listen for yourself below.
Okay, so the show that’s happening on Saturday, October 8 (THAT’S TODAY!) will take place at The Cottage in East Atlanta. The address is 1300 Skyhaven Rd. Atlanta 30316. In addition to Places, you’ll get to spend the evening with three other insanely great acts:Gem Club, Holy Spirits, and Vocabulary. The show is at 8:30 pm, it’s $5 and I promise it’ll be worth every penny. Stop by, say hello and check out some really great music. I’ll see y’all there!
I’m excited to announce that Levek aka David Levesque is releasing a 7″ on Father/Daughter Records. This self-titled 7″ is the first release for Levek and it’s coming at you on November 16. “Look on the Bright Side” is the A-side, “Slow” is the B-side and the record, limited to 400 is pressed on red vinyl. Red vinyl! And check this out, each vinyl order will include a digital download bundle with both songs from the 7″ and his previously unreleased song “Chief” as well as two brand spanking new tracks.
I could ramble on for days about how great Levek‘s sun soaked tunes are (seriously, great.), but I think you should take a listen and let this lovely tune warm you up. Then head on over and pre-order the 7″. Links and whatnot will appear below.
A couple of days ago Philly-based blogger Mark of Yvynyl updated the Internet about this new EP available for download. Because I love discovering new music and because I trust Yvynyl, I clicked the link. What I found was Sunny Ali and The Kid and I can’t get enough. Seriously. Sunny Ali and The Kid are a Philly-based kind of country, kind of punk and whole lot of awesome band. They recently released a digital EP called Try Harder, which you can download here. It’s available for free, but the band does accept donations, which I recommend you do because according to Mark they are great live. Monies = Tour. That’s what I’m talking about. Also, if it’s good (and it is pretty darn good) it’s worth buying.
Check out these tracks below, they are my favorites from the EP.
The Best For You
I’ve seriously had this EP on repeat for the past two days. I love it.
So I am already freaking out about how awesome this record is going to be and they keep teasing us by releasing songs and videos of them performing these songs live. Well, follow this link to the Consequence of Sound and listen to the UK single, “We Use to Wait”, and the US single, “Ready to Start”. Amazing. Seriously.
And can we talk about how awesome the cover art is?!
