Show Preview: Deerhoof @ Mohawk (2/1)

Date 2/1/11
Location Mohawk
Doors 900p
Tickets $13 @ Frontgate

Indie superstars Deerhoof are making a stop into Austin at Mohawk on Tuesday night.  The show is getting kicked off pretty early, with a start time around 9:30 for the headliners, so you working stiffs should still be able to make it out.  Opening support is provided by Ben Butler and Mouse Pad, Fingaar Bangaar, and Nervous Cop.  Those looking for even more music should stick around for the after show inside with local music provided by Zorch, Cartright, and Sunset.

New Music from Fleet Foxes

Remember Fleet Foxes?  Yeah, it has been some time hasn’t it?  Today news broke that there has been official release date for their latest album, Helplessness Blues.  Once again, Sub Pop will be releasing the record, hitting the street on May 3rd.  Personally, I’m stoked that they worked with Phil Ek again, producing and mixing, as he’s one of my favorites behind the board.  When first listening to this track, I kind of saw a bit faster pacing, at least in regards to the strumming, but as the song begins to trickle towards the end, you can see the band go off into that whispy winter quality that made their debut so lovable.  We know everyone will be talking about this one all day.

New Music From Banjo Or Freakout

This new tune from London based band Banjo or Freakout has really sparked our interest in songwriter Alessio Natalizia and the music he’s creating.  You people who like this new song can pick up the debut self-titled album from Natalizia on February 22nd via Rare Book Room Records.  I can’t wait to hear what else we’ve got in store from this guy.

New Music From Secret Cities

It’s fairly obvious that we here at ATH are big fans of Secret Cities and the sweet tunes they’ve been brining our way over the last year or so.  So only about a year removed from their highly under-appreciated debut LP from last year, the band is looking to release their sophomore effort this Spring on Western Vinyl.  New album Strange Hearts will be available on March 29th and features this new single “Love Crime”.  It shows a whole lot of promise and makes me think you might want to pick up this new album come March.

Friday Top 5: Reasons You Should Listen to Some Tunes from the Past

I could, honestly spend hours honoring this personal request, and at some point just might do that fucking thing. F*CK new music! Sure we get the occasional handjob every now and then, but really? Do we see a respectable Disciple on the horizon? Not really.

Anyone who thought that Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs really deserved an album of the year nomination for 2010, should check out now. Booooorrrrrring. We live in a time where music/art takes place in a nanosecond. Things move fast now, and as you move forward in life, only faster. Controlling the content is completely up to you.

New Music from Cult of Youth

Earlier this week I got word from some friends about Cult of Youth, and just today Stereogum gave them the “Band to Watch” tag.  Their self-titled album hits the streets on February 22nd, and this is another one of those bands that appeals to both my nostalgic personality, as well as my newer tastes.  There is this dark bass line working, with an underlying sense of lighter melodies, but what gets me is the vocal.  Vocals on this single are brash and throaty, like some snotty little punk-rocker playing in some dense club.  It’s a great dichotomy, and one that should be equally as exciting for all you punks gone soft.

More New Music From The Go! Team

A few months back we shared a new track with you called “T.O.R.N.A.D.O.” from somewhat forgotten pop hit makers Go! Team.  Well now the band’s new LP Rolling Blackouts is hitting stores next week and we figured the Friday before release date would be a good time to share another new song.  This one is called “Voice Yr Choice” and might just put Go! Team back on top of the indie dance playlists.

Show Preview: Monotonix @ Mohawk (1/29)

Date 1/29/11
Location Mohawk
Doors 8pm
Tickets $10 @ Frontgate

Those crazy bastards known as Monotonix from Israel are making a stop into Mohawk on Saturday night.  Joining the punk rockers and opening the show up are our local favorites The Strange Boys.  I’d recommend the Boys finish and get out of the way so as to not get a butt cheek in the face.  I’m sure this show will be just as nuts as all their other ones.

New Music From Dag För Dag

Dag för Dag are an American-Swedish band formed by brother sister duo Sarah & Jacob Snavely.  We were recently sent new single “I am Assassin” from the group and have been digging them ever since.  They tend to remind a lot of old school Radiohead, with a chick lead singer of course.  You can pick up debut American LP Boo from Dag för Dag on April 26th via Ceremony Recordings.

New Music From Cat’s Eyes

Despite their absolutely ridiculous band name, I’ve been enjoying this new relaxing tune from Cat’s Eyes called “Not a Friend”.  The relatively new duo formed by Rachel Zeffira and Faris Badwin of The Horrors are dropping their debut self-titled LP on April 11th in the UK on Polydor Records and stateside on May 3rd via Downtown Records. You can also head over to the P4K to watch a live video of the band’s first ever breathtaking performance inside the Vatican, yes THAT Vatican.  No lie.
