Thought I Would Share Some Wonky

This one popped on an intarweb’s radio station (The Bagel over at I dug it, so I thought I would share.

This may be a late entry into best band name of the year. Wonky is such a great word. This is perfect post punk.

So here you go, Wonky Doll and The Echo

Show Pics: Icona Pop @ Emo’s (12/19)

Sometimes, I just feel like shooting.

I made some last minute requests with venue people and mgmt. to get access into the Marina & The Diamonds show last night at Emo’s, ended up getting to shoot Icona Pop. I caught a little of their set at Fun Fun Fun Fest. It was a party, a way too early in the day dance party. So what the hell, got done with a happy hour with photog friends and headed over to Emo’s for some synth jams and dance party anthem noise.

Look at the pretty lights. I had fun shooting…

Who Is E.M.I.L.Y.?

Friend of the program, Orthy, just added a sweet track we have been digging as part of their live sets for a while now to his soundcloud. The track “E.M.I.L.Y.” is a sweet little builder with the sensibilites we have come to love from Ian and the boys.

Stream it there and if you are frisky, you can download a Baio remix of it here.

New Lady Pop From My Gold Mask

It’s no secret that we ATH kids really like the ladies of pop music, especially the ones that can carry a tune.  Gretta Rochelle and her band known as My Gold Mask certainly fall into that vein of synth laden pop with some outstanding female lead vocals.  Of course this receives the ATH seal of approval.

My Gold Mask have a new album coming out on February 19th entitled Leave Me Midnight.

New Sludge Rocker From Western Medication

Well this here song is short and sweet so I shall respond in kind with a to the point post.  The song is called “Big City” and comes from Nashville rockers Western Medication.  It is fast.  It is mean.  It is also badass.

If you like under a minute songs, the band have a new EP entitled The Painted World coming out on January 29th via Jeffery Drag Records.  Enjoy.

More New Alterna Jams from Birdskulls

A few weeks ago I brought you the lead jam from Birdskulls AA Single, which is being released by our friends over at Art is Hard Records, so I’m happy to return with another track off the single.  The sound of the guitars has a definite familiarity, but on this run through, I’m finding the underlying growl of the vocals more intoxicating with each listen.  While the pace might not be as quick as previous track, “Mispresume,” you can see the group pushing themselves to reinvigorate a classic alterna-jam sound, fueled by grit and their undying passion.

New Gritty Pop From Campfires

Here’s a short and sweet gritty pop number called “Fortune Teller” coming your way from Portland based indie pop band Campfires.  The band is basically a one man job by Jeff Walls who recently moved from Chicago for greener skies in the Northwest.  Jeff and his band moniker have a new album called Tomorrow Tomorrow coming out on February 19th via Fire Talk Records.  You should definitely check out a pre-order of the album if this one tickles your fancy.
