Subsonics
At long last, SUBSONICS have descended again upon the denizens of the steamy rock’n’roll jungle with their first album in seven years, "In the Black Spot" (Slovenly Recordings 702-112)! The Subsonics have been called the "Best band in Atlanta" by fellow Georgians BLACK LIPS and for good reason: previous works by this beatnik, noir-punk careen machine have left indelible marks, or black spots if you will, on the psyche of big-bam-boom-shang-a-lang rockers the world over during their nearly two-decade tenure. This new album brings more of singer Clay Reed's petulant, masculine-feminine vocals and surreal lyricism, shaken up with his signature garroted guitar, Buffi Aguero’s inventive, incessantly churning drumming, and Rob Delbueno's (Man, or Astroman?) rolling basement bass. On this latest spin, previously unwritten, yet eerily familiar, melodies ("Lime-Lime" and "Miracle Worker") echo in the catacombs of America's soul and ring throughout with a childish enthusiasm, like a funky delinquent's budget bubblegum album. What we really have here is an obsessive, detached drop-in to an after-hours opium den, where Super-8 movies are projected onto a soiled sheet, and the soundtrack is undeniably Subsonics.
Midnight Larks
'The Midnight Larks are a surf noir, dark country and garage-psych trio from Atlanta, Georgia that have had a very successful first year together. They were just named best new Atlanta band by Stomp and Stammer, listed as one of the 55 most anticipated local albums of 2016 by Immersive Atlanta, and have also received several features from Creative Loafing after sharing bills with bands like Shannon and the Clams, Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires and the Coathangers. They are a local favorite and have been invited to play several festivals like Lakewoodstock, Phoenix Fest, the East Atlanta Strut and the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade.

The band hails from Atlanta, but their roots are much further based. Sasha Kaleidoscopia Vallely being from Birmingham in the UK, Nikki Speake from Dadeville, Alabama and Pietro Di Gennaro from Baltimore, Maryland.
Sasha (formerly of Spindrift, The Warlocks and The Mobsters; cameos with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Singapore Sling, Lords of Altamont, as well as with members of Portishead and Massive Attack), Nikki (Whistle Bait, Virgil Otis, Sioux City Sue and 30 Year Old Women From Mars) and Pietro (Black Linen, The Booze, The Forty Fives, Bad Spell and Andrew & the Dyspyramids) were thrown together by fate, a PBR representative, good fortune and a love for great music. They have only played together briefly, but are already producing an exciting sound and new buzz -- ready to take Atlanta and the rest of the world by storm'
A Drug Called Tradition
In their debut album, Medicine Music (out July 28), Atlanta trio A Drug Called Tradition fuses shoegaze, krautrock, and psych rock influences with the heavy atmosphere of their southern roots. The eight-minute opening track, “With You Miss You,” bursts onto the scene with brooding vocals and saturated guitar pulses before breaking and leading the listener on a Can-inspired odyssey of layered intensity and release. This journey continues through the rest of the album, each track seemingly standing on its own before revealing its place in the larger whole.

After the dissolution of heavy psych stalwarts Abby Gogo, singer/guitarist Bon Allinson began working on a batch of songs more heavily influenced by his upbringing in Alabama and by the musical traditions of the South. He brought these songs to drummer Pumakawa “Puma” Navarro (Abby Gogo) and bassist Asha Lakra (Tikka) and the trio hit the ground running. They played their first set opening for Matt Hollywood of Brian Jonestown Massacre and soon after recorded a three song demo with Spencer Garn at Diamond Street Studios. The band gained a reputation as one of the most intense acts in Atlanta and around the South playing with acts such as Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Holy Wave, Spaceface, White Reaper, and Froth.

Ready to set the songs they’d crafted to two-inch tape, ADCT headed to Water Valley, Mississippi to record Medicine Music with producer Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers, Dexateens), and engineer Bronson Tew at Dial Back Sound (owned at the time by Bruce Watson of Fat Possum Records). The band stayed in the small apartment adjacent to the studio, working in marathon sessions that ended in all involved crashing wherever was convenient. The tracks were also mixed and mastered at Dial Back Sound and pressed to vinyl at Gotta Groove Records. Now with their debut album in hand, ADCT has teamed up with Psych Army Intergalactic and are ready to conquer the rest of the U. S. and then the world.
