More From Operators

unnamed-13-1At this point in his career, Dan Boeckner can really do no wrong in my mind. Regardless of how is making music or who with, he continues to churn out hit after hit. Today I’ve got another new track called “Blue Wave” under the Operators band name. As I mentioned previously, this is truly some great music that could easily rival his early work with Handsom furs. Carry on friend.

Operators will releaseBlue Waveon April 1st via Last Gang Records.

New Music From Handsom Furs

This week has been pretty crazy for new music from big name acts and now Handsom Furs are gettin’ in on the fun.  New track “I’m Confused” from upcoming LP Face Control just popped up on the web today and is already getting heavy rotation at the ATH offices.  It’s got some dirty sounding guitar work mixed in with a pretty typical Handsom Furs synth beat.  You can get your hands on the new album March 10th via the always awesome Sub Pop label.  The band also plans to be a part of our SXSW festival in March.

7/25 Wolf Parade Show @ La Zona Rosa

Dim the lights. Shadows form on stage. Crowd screams. The sharp slam of a snare drum beats down signaling the beginning of “You are a Runner and I am my Father’s Son”. Wolf Parade has just entered the building. Sit back and enjoy the spectacle. So marked the beginning of a masterful show by Wolf Parade on Friday night at La Zona Rosa in Austin. Read more
