I’m a pretty big fan of anything that Detroit’s Protomartyr puts out, so naturally I feel inclined to share with you a song they recorded for Adult Swim’s Summer Single collection. Apparently, this song was recorded in a two day span back in March, but when you take a listen to it, it oozes nothing but meticulous and refined garage rock. The track is slow but steady beast that thumps along, the guitars swelling with grit and cutting like knives through the mix. Make sure you take a listen below and check out when the band will be coming to your city next right here… *Spoilers* they’re even coming to our very own Sound on Sound Fest in November. Make sure you’re there.
Those of you who haven’t checked out the new Adult Swim single series should really head over to the site and see what they have to offer. Already having posted great new songs by Best Coast, Mastadon, and to How to Dress Well, they seem to know what’s up in the music game. Today the site posted this great new single by long time ATH favorite Tallest Man on Earth. The song “Weather of a Killing Kind” evokes all those great feelings we’ve grown to love from Matsson and solidifies his claim as one of the best singer song writers around.
In other TMOE news, we somehow missed posting on his new song “In the Pockets” which is a new jam being packaged with the re-release of Matsson’s debut EP on Gravitation/Dead Oceans (out now BTW). You can stream that new one via One Thirty BPM.[audio: http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Weather-of-a-Killing-Kind.mp3]

The good folks at Adult Swim, who usually bring us stuff like Robot Chicken and Family Guy reruns, have a new downloadable mix for you called African Swim. The mix gets the unique name because it’s chock full of the best hip-hop coming out of Africa right now. Download the mix and familiarize yourself with some previously unknown hip-hop beats.
