Have a Nice Weekend

Hot Summer Nights is in full swing. Thanks to the Red River Cultural District for being rad. Gonna see Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Sunday. You? Should we talk movies? Maybe soundtracks?

TR/ST has shared a track off of Destroyer Pt. 2. Pre-order here. It is one of those amazing songs that can make you sink to internal depths and lift you up at the same time, that conflict of negative understones and ringing, climbing leads floating just above.

Introducing Fanclub

ATH was always down for a night out when Letting Up Despite Great Faults was on a bill. Bedroom pop shimmy vibes…

Out of that project, we now have Fanclub (or ffffanclub for your social media searching needs). This trio is comprised of Letting Up lead Mike Lee and drummer Daniel Schmidt with new-to-the-mix-on-vocals Leslie Crunkilton. Some of us at ATH always felt that Mike would find his way into a collab using a female-vocal up front. So, here we are with a shiny new track to give us something use to preview their upcoming appearance during Hot Summer Nights at Mohawk on the 28th.

Power Pop from The Person & The People

thepersonandthepeopleAlliteration aside, I think I found my jam of the week, well, one of them anyways. This brand new track from The Person & The People came in via a friend yesterday, and I couldn’t think of a better way to head towards the weekend. If you’re like me, you’ll likely hear remnants of the landscape left by Teenage Fanclub. There’s warmth in the guitar sound, solid vocal harmony and it turns corners at just the right spots; it’s spot on perfect. This is the first single from the band’s new record, Dark and Low, which will be released by Land Ski Records on April 22nd.
