As previously announced, Athens-based garage-rock duo Eureka California will release its fourth full-length, Roadrunners, May 4 via local label HHBTM. Previously, the group shared the record's punchy first single, "Threads," plus the more leisurely "Mexican Coke." Now, we're pleased to premiere the invigorating "Over It," which you can stream below.
Athens troubadour Cortez Garza releases his latest full-length, The Low Vibe, tomorrow. Flagpole's Gordon Lamb calls the album, tracked with Matt Tamisin at Japanski Studio, a "tight collection of a mere eight songs [that] is refreshing in both its brevity and strength of composition."
Athens musician Bryan J. Howard is known for fronting The HEAP, the local indie-soul group that recently released its second full-length, Overdue, as well as his work with alt-rock mainstay Cracker. Howard also moonlights as a voiceover artist, contributing to "a variety of projects, from video-game characters to audiobook narration," according to his website.
Punk provocateurs Kwazymoto released Limerence Land, one of our favorite local albums of the year, back in October. Now, not two months later, the group is back with yet another collection of new material: the three-song concept EP The Death of Darby Crash. (Check out the album art above.)
When he's not charting cosmic sonic territory with Future Ape Tapes, Athens musician Donald Whitehead is laying down loose, lucid psych-rap grooves as Space Brother, which Flagpole's Gordon Lamb called "a nice counterpoint to the not entirely post-hip-hop, but definitely wide-open experimentalism of the Apes."
If you have a second, Athens musician Jace Bartet would like to speak with you about the life-altering power of the electric guitar.
If there were an award for hardest-working rock band in Athens, it'd surely go to Deep State. The pop-punk four-piece has seemingly remained on the road since releasing the excellent Thought Garden in April, and it's somehow found time to begin prepping another new LP, reportedly titled The Path to Fast Oblivion.
Relatively new Athens project Blanko isn't a band in the traditional sense. Rather, it's an audio-visual outlet for the skewed musings of local songwriter and artist Larson Collier, known for playing with indie rockers Big Morgan.

Local indie-rock stalwarts Elf Power are riding high after releasing Twitching in Time, a career highlight, back in May. Following a summer tour with Tobin Sprout, the band is settling back in to Athens life and ushering in autumn with an animated collage video for Twitching in Time gem "Cycling Aimlessly," which we're pleased to premiere today.
Athens rapper Malcolm Walters, aka Donny Knottsville, maintains a prolific recording schedule, having released a string of solid mixtapes over the past few years, and in July he dropped his most complex and cohesive album yet, Celestial Seasons, which you can download for free on Bandcamp.
