Last November, Athens/Atlanta band Pinecones, a fast Flagpole favorite, announced it was changing its name to Arbor Labor Union and signing with indie juggernaut Sub Pop, which released the group's new album, I Hear You, May 13.
The band recently revealed a music video for the record's eight-minute centerpiece, the muscular, meandering "Volume Peaks." The clip was filmed at Jekyll Island's Driftwood Beach and a Ruth Street house and features lighting by local psychedelic-projection collective Eye Gate.
Check it out below:
Athens musician JJ Posway fronts the emo-tinged indie-pop outfit scooterbabe and creates dark, textural instrumental music as Aprotag. Now Posway has a third project, the electronic-minded Orca Mug, and today we're happy to premiere the title track from Orca Mug's upcoming EP, Yeah, The Void.
Adrian Zelski, the frontman for popular Athens reggae outfit DubConscious, has been arrested and charged with felony drug trafficking and felony conspiracy after authorities discovered "approximately 18.5 pounds of suspected marijuana" during a search, according to an Asheboro, NC Courier-Tribune report.
