Hear the Title Track from Blushing’s New Weak EP

If you’ve been following us over at ATH Records, you’re surely aware of how excited we are for 2018! We’ve got some great releases, but the first will be a 12″ EP for Blushing; they’ve titled the EP Weak. Yesterday DKFM premiered the title track on their shogegaze radio show, and I wanted to make sure you had an ample chance to hear it too, just in case you missed it accidentally. For those just being introduced to the band, you’re in for a treat, as they perfectly mesh the qualities of dream pop and shoegaze’s angular guitars; you’re really going to love it. We’ll be releasing it on January 26th, but you can grab it HEREfrom us right now.

She Sir Album Release Show is Tonight

She Sir, one of our longtime favorites, who we always give our undying support, released their excellent new LP, Rival Island, last week…and they return to the stage in Austin this week at the Mohawk. They’re one of the premiere dreampop/indiepop acts in Austin, if that’s your thing…not to mention this new record taking it to a whole other level. Plus, if you hadn’t heard, we’re putting out an EP by the incredible Blushing, who will be opening the show…so get there early and sample what’s coming your way! Plus, Wildfires will keep it real right in the middle of the night.

Doors are at 9 and its All Ages, so you’re out of excuses.

Show Pics: Tres Oui and Growl @ Hole in the Wall (5/25)

…with Blushing, too.

I am finally getting around to sharing some pics from our little party the other night at Hole in the Wall. I used to go there quite a bit way back in the day. I went on a few dates with a girl whose family lived there. I dared not go back for a decade after breaking up, just in case.

HitW also made for a great test of some new hardware. I have gone mirrorless with Sony. It is a brave new world.

Click through to see some photos from the night full of Blushing, Tres Oui and Growl with a few thoughts on both music and photography.

ATH Presents Blushing, Tres Oui and Growl @ Hole in the Wall Tomorrow

From time to time we like to put together little rock n’ roll shows, and boy do we have an incredible one for you tomorrow night at Hole in the Wall. It just happens to feature some ATH Records bands breaking down the doors and throwing some great pop music in your faces. Blushing is one of our favorite new acts in town, so hopefully you’ve caught on to their dreamy stylings. Tres Oui, well, those guys are great…this is jangling Prefab Sprout at its best. Oh, and you didn’t hear Growl all over your local radio in April? Well, come see them! Doors are at 9..we’ll see you there!

Dreamy Pop from Blushing

blushingAustin’s Free Week is all about discovery, and I didn’t even have to leave the house to discover this great new dream pop band, Blushing. The group are about to release their Tether EP on January 13th, and I dig what I hear in these songs. You’ll hear the guitars shimmering in the best way, but perhaps what I love the most is how the songs have some length, which allows you to fully digest the sound from the band…no two minute tracks here! The longest track on the EP is titled “Mess,” and I’m putting it below to illustrate the power the aesthetic beauty they’ve captured on their EP. Go ahead, give it a listen.
