Rivergazer is a band that recently signed to Father Daughter Records and have been pushing hard to promote their upcoming album on the label. No we’ve already shared with you two songs from the upcoming effort that were both fairly poppy and fun. Today the band has taken another bit of a left turn sound wise with this new single “Lonely”. It’s more of a singer songwriter themed tune with some bits of atmospheric noise in the background and an entracing guitar throughout. If you put all of these singles together, it looks like we’re going to get an eclectic and mesmerizing LP.
Pick up new album Random Nostalgia on August 12th. I promise it’s going to be worth your time.

It’s a bit of a slow week here in the music world, so we ATH kids are reaching far and wide trying to find some new music to bring to your ever awaiting ears. This track I’ve got is called “Eat Your Young” and is coming your way from Minneapolis based group Solid Gold. The song falls into the muted pop, or even mellow dance genre, and proves to be a solid listen time and again.
Solid Gold’s new album Eat Your Young just came out on Tuesday via Totally Gross National Product.
