Desert Souls Drop Turtle

It’s been a hot minute since I got excited about a band that brandished the sort of garage style that was popular all the rage upon its reemergence. Desert Souls, however, seem like they’re up to something great on this brand new single from the German outfit. Things seem all ramshackle and joyous from the get-go; it’s that classic train flying off the rails style we here at ATH enjoy. But, what sold me, was the hook in the chorus from the vocals. I love the way “me” gets stretched out higher, as it definitely got its hooks in me. This jam appears on the group’s mini-LP Back to the Coast, which is out next week via KUS.

Having a Nice Weekend?

EqualityPretty exciting news yesterday, eh? There is going to be a lot of engagement parties and wedding invites going out soon. Get your wardrobe sorted. I took that pic yesterday.

I missed doing a Have A Nice Weekend post because work was nuts and I had to work through to a 4:30 happy hour call with friends celebrating the news in the 4th Street area. So I am posting this mid-weekend in hopes you’ll use it for getting ready to go out or when you come in from the party later tonight, perhaps hanging over tomorrow (safe rides, people, safe rides). It is called “The Floor” and is by an artist called Turtle. You can stream the entire EP on SoundCloud.
