Knuckle Rumbler are at it again this Friday with a party going down at The Independent in Austin.  This time headliners SPEAK bring the noise along with Missions, Love at 20 (former Clap Clap members), and DJ sets in between sets by DJ Markus with a K.  Of course other special goodies will be planed, which you can read about over on the KR site.  It’s just too much to fit in this tiny little space.  We’ve also got the latest single from SPEAK for you below called “Carrie (Mindfull)”.

New Tunes from Pale Sunday

Pale+Sunday+pale_sundayIn an effort to become the only member of ATH with a serious twee addiction, I bring you new tunes from the Brazilian group, Pale Sunday.  This is the first new music we’ve gotten from the group since 2005’s Summertime.  The warmth of the vocals in this tune, “Shooting Star,” make it perfect for this chilly winter day.

Stream New Lightspeed Champion LP

lightA week prior to its slated U.S. release date, Lightspeed Champion is streaming his new album Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You over on myspace.  The new album is one of our most highly anticipated releases of the new year, and from first listen, it may live up to the billing.  Latest single from the LP “Marlene” is featured below, which also just appeared on an EP of the same name out now on Domino Records.  Check that one out on itunes if you aren’t into those physical relationships.  Pre-orders of the sophomore LP out next week (already out now in the UK) can be found here.

New Music From Dr. Dog

drdogOne of our long time favorite bands Dr. Dog have returned in 2010 with a new album entitled Shame, Shame.  Check out the new song “Shadow People” from Shame, Shame, which is slated for an April 6th release date. Sounds like they’ll be picking up right where they left off with Fate.  I’m cool with that. (via Da Gum)

New Tunes from Radio Dept.

The+Radio+Dept+radiodeptSweden’s Labrador Records have a stranglehold on all things Swedish pop, and I’m grateful for it.  Just recently they released a new Radio Dept EP, which features several of the songs off the bands upcoming album Clinging to a Scheme.  Not much is really known about the record at this point, other than it should hit during the Spring.  This track, “David,” has a sort of shoegaze-synth-pop-croon to it, and everything just sort of moves along from there.  You’ll be digging this track all day long.

New Tunes from The Octagon

octagon1webOnce again New York hits right at my heart, now offering me the great sounds of The Octagon. They’ve released their latest album, Warm Love and Cool Dreams Forever, on Serious Business Records, but I have a feeling not too many people have heard much from this group yet, but that should change soon.  The group has the ferociousness of old punk tunes with a lot of lo-fi tendencies, which might recall a little bit of Guided by Voices.  You can even grab a free EP from the group with several B-Sides HERE.
