Brothers And Sisters @ Mohawk (1/17)

Choices for weekend shows are looking pretty slim, but one bright spot on the map is a Brothers & Sisters show at Mohawk on Saturday.  The local Austin band has been getting a lot of well deserved praise this year with the release of their solid debut LP Fortunately.  Having seen these guys a few times now, we can tell you that this will be a show you don’t want to miss out on.  Show starts at 9 with tickets being sold only at the door.

New Music From Handsom Furs

This week has been pretty crazy for new music from big name acts and now Handsom Furs are gettin’ in on the fun.  New track “I’m Confused” from upcoming LP Face Control just popped up on the web today and is already getting heavy rotation at the ATH offices.  It’s got some dirty sounding guitar work mixed in with a pretty typical Handsom Furs synth beat.  You can get your hands on the new album March 10th via the always awesome Sub Pop label.  The band also plans to be a part of our SXSW festival in March.

New Music From Franz Ferdinand

As the release of Franz Ferdinand’s new album Tonight: Franz Ferdinand draws ever closer, new songs are popping up all over the interweb.  First came a video for new song Ulysses and now the band is giving us an mp3 for possible dance hit of the spring “No You Girls Never Know”.  Physical copies of the album will be out January 27th in the US via Domino records.

New Music From Elvis Perkins

Over the holidays we told you about some new tunes Elvis Perkins in Deerland had streaming on their website.  Now we have an MP3 of one of those tracks we found over on Stereogum today.  This new song is called “Shampoo” and will appear on new album Elvis Perkins in Deerland out March 10th on XL Recordings.  Sounds like something that would fit in pretty nicely with stuff from Mr. Perkins’ 2007 album Ash Wednesday.
