LocationMohawk

One of our best local and instrumental acts This Will Destroy You have a show planned for Friday night at Mohawk in Austin.  Joining the ATH fave on stage you’ll get a stacked bill of locals with The Eastern Sea, Pompeii, Tactics, For Hours and Ours, and Searcher all in on the fun.  Bellow you can find recent single “Communal Blood” from upcoming album Tunnel Blanket which still has no set release date.  Anyone know the story on the huge delay of the new release?

More New Music From Two Wounded Birds

This summer we posted a new beach rock song from UK band Two Wounded Birds called “My Lonesome”.  Well now we’ve got new track “Night Patrol” that appears on the recently released EP Keep On Dreaming Baby.  The first track we posted reminded us of Twin Peaks, so we’ll stick with the theme music idea and compare this jam to one you might find on a James Bond soundtrack.  You can hear the entire new EP from Wounded Birds on their bandcamp site or buy a physical copy from Holiday Records.

Show Preview: Turbo Fruits @ Red 7 (12/17)

Tickets$8 @ Frontgate

As promised earlier this week, we wanted to remind you about the sweet show at Red 7 on Friday night with buzz bands Turbo Fruits and Pujol.  Also on the stage are Rayon Beach and Dikes of Holland.  It’s a cheap ticket price so I’d recommend checking these guys out before they start booking at bigger venues.  Below you can also find the new song from Turbo Fruits we posted earlier this week.

New Tunes from Beach Fossils

After breaking out a pretty solid debut, Beach Fossils are at it again, ready to release a new EP on Captured Tracks, which is quickly making waves in my book. The collection is titled What a Pleasure, and it adds just another thing to look forward to on February 22nd.  You’ll find that the vocals are really up front in the mix, while the guitar just sort of meanders back and forth throughout the song.  It’s got a feeling of labelmates (and founder) Blank Dogs, if you removed the fuzziness and distortion.  Neither of those things are bad in my book, but that’s just one man’s opinion.  I’ll let you make the final call.

New Music From Mountain Goats

ATH fave band The Mountain Goats posted new song “Tyler Lambert’s Grave” on their twitter page yesterday.  It’s been made very clear that the track will in fact not be appearing on upcoming album All Eternals Deck due out March 29th on Merge.  Mountain Goats leading man John Darnielle has said that the track is intended to preview the new direction of the band but didn’t quite fit in well with the other material.  Hope this tides over you fans until March.

New Track (and album) from Rural Alberta Advantage

In case you missed out on the last Rural Alberta Advantage album, Hometowns, you’ll have a chance come March 1st to grab their new one, Departing.  The band created quite a buzz with their last effort, so our bet is that this round will be no different than the last.  It’s going to be coming out on Paper Bag Records, with a little help from the great kids over at Saddle Creek.  The intro really uses the cutting guitar to build some tension, but then the vocals kick in, using the pounding rhythm to really kick up the pace.  Just listening to this track makes you appreciate the spirit of the band.  Consider me stoked, brah.

New Tunes from Toro y Moi

It’s not like we haven’t already been keeping our eyes on Toro y Moi, but after catching his set recently at Fun Fun Fun Fest, we’re stoked to hear the entire Underneath the Pine album, coming your way on February 22.  If you can’t get into the groove of the bass line on this single, then you better get to the doctor quick like.  Of course, Chaz’s voice adds that extra element of smooth cool to the moving song, all things that will definitely leave you wanting more already.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to get down with the opposite sex while grooving to this song. Count us in.

New Music From Turbo Fruits

Nashville garage rock band Turbo Fruits have this awesome new song “Keepin’ On” floating around the interwebs.  The track is set to appear on a limited run 7″ white vinyl coming to stores on December 14th.  This is also a good time to bring up the band as they are coming into our city on Friday at Red 7.  We’ll remind you about that show later this week.  Thanks to amigo MOKB for pointing us to this track.
