Just about three years ago I fell in love with the self-titled debut album by supergroup Lo Tom, which features David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Trey Many (Velour 100), Jason Martin (Starflyer 59), and TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion/The Soft Drugs). That album offered us some of the heaviest moments of Control era Pedro with the added bonus of master beat guy Trey Many on percussion. During their time at home, the guys have made another album ready for distribution, but are asking for fans to donate towards the project via Kickstarter. Of course the album announcement comes with a new single to entice fans into giving, and it is yet another straight up banger from the growing supergroup. Check out the rocking “Start Payin'” below and consider donating to the manufacturing costs of LP2.
We’re now only a few short weeks away from the end of another amazing year in the music industry. We ATH kids went all list, all the time this year with a whole bunch of opinions about top albums, top Oceanic albums, top Austin albums and even one about albums you’ve probably never heard of. We like music, we like lists, and we like debating about both lists and music, so deal with it. I’m continuing our insane foray into lists this year end season with my personal Top 25 songs of 2017.
A quick blurb and full list after the jump.
Lists are arbitrary and burdensome, but why not join the fun everyone else is having? We gathered our lists, separate lists for all of us, then combined them into one that had 50 albums. What you get here are the four writers/contributors of ATH, giving you their meaningless opinions on what we thought was the jam in 2017. It’s alphabetical, and we put the initials next to it so you could track down your enemy!
Supergroup alert! And not just any supergroup, a band featuring one of our longtime faves David Bazan. He’s joined in this new group called Lo Tom by Jason Martin (Starflyer 59), Trey Many (Velour 100/Starflyer 59), and TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion/The Soft Drugs). So apparently these guys made some music together awhile back, sat on the songs for sometime, and have decided to release them now. Below you’ll find their first single entitled “Overboard”. It’s sure to make some of you old school Pedro fans incredibly excited. Pees pants a little….
A debut album is coming sometime this year on Barsuk.
