Filmmaker (and former Athens resident) Lance Bangs is working with Vice music blog Noisey on a Budweiser-sponsored video series titled "Made in America." Each episode spotlights a different U.S. city, with a particular focus on said city's music scene.
Last month, Bangs and crew journeyed to Athens to shoot footage for a Classic City episode. Today, Noisey premiered the end result.
R.E.M.'s seminal 1991 album Out of Time led to an explosion in young people registering to vote, as Slate writers Whitney Jones and Roman Mars explained Friday.
"[N]o album has had as large an effect on politics in the United States as R.E.M.'s Out of Time," they wrote.

Fans of easy listening station EZFM ("Music To Your Years"), which has been broadcasting locally at WNEE 88.1 and 89.9 FM since summer 2012, got the sad news earlier today that the station will no longer occupy space on the Athens-area radio dial.

After releasing a quiet and meditative solo album, 2013's A Sudden Loss of Elevation, local songwriter Don Chambers assembled a crack backing group and got weird. Disquietude, out earlier this year, was an unwieldy collection of textured folk tunes, industrial noise pieces and other back-room experimentations.
As a whole, it sounded a bit like a mind slowly unraveling, and the video for "Grow Back Into the Ground," which you can stream below, doesn't do much to restore confidence in Chambers' psychic fortitude. The stark, creepy clip matches up nicely with the song's haunted folk vibe.

I’ve been skeptical of summer music festivals since Bonnaroo 2004, when I was gifted the most horrendous sunburn you could imagine. The sound is usually never on point for outdoor stages, either. Call me crazy, but I’m just not fond of sweating it out while also not being able to hear a band that well.
