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.
Copenhagen’s Iceage released their sophomore effort, You’re Nothing, via Matador back in February. Now they’re touring across the states and will be in Atlanta at the EARL on Sunday, June 9th. I highly recommend checking this band out. The cover is $12 and doors are at 8 pm.
Let’s get this week started off right with some newness from Atlanta’s own Book Club. They have brand-spanking new EP out tomorrow and I can tell you I’ve listened to Shapes On The Water more than a couple of times, it’s stunning. Check out one of my favorites, “Understand Please Understand” below.
I definitely feel super lucky to live in Atlanta right now. At any given moment there are at least two shows every night or so to choose from and this weekend is no different. Dum Dum Girls will be gracing us with their presence at the EARL this Saturday, Oct. 27. Tickets are still available and I’d act fast if you want to check ‘em out, you can get advance tix until 4pm day of show. Also playing, Devin and Old King Cole Younger (Cole from the Black Lips). Dum Dum Girls recently released their End of Daze EP on Sub Pop. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I’d definitely recommend picking it up from your favorite ATL record store.
Watch and listen to “Lord Knows,” the first single off the End of Daze.
Definitely check out Brooklyn-based funky, groove rock Ava Luna tonight at The EARL. There’s still time to get tickets via Ticket Alternative. And get there in time to see Carnivores and wish them well on their upcoming tour.
