Alt-country troubadour Scott Low has deep Athens music ties, as the former frontman of Efren and Scott Low & the Southern Bouillon. Currently, Low is prepping the release of The New Vintage, a solo record that's out June 17 via South Carolina imprint 10 Foot Woody Records.
Today, we're pleased to premiere the album's second single, the boisterous, somewhat menacing "Body Bag." Stream it below:
One of the most dynamic performers in Athens' hip hop scene, Eugene Willis, akaBlacknerdninja, is rightly lauded for his live show. But if "Yea Right," the first single from Willis' upcoming album, is any indication, he's stepping his game up in the recording department, too.
Today we're excited to premiere the video for "Yea Right," which you can watch below:
Flagpole favorites Dead Neighbors are still riding high on the strength of last year's excellent self-titled cassette (which landed at No. 6 on our best-of-2015 list). Today we're pleased to premiere the music video for "Tell," one of the record's standout tunes.
Good. Now that you're back, how about taking a look at the brand new video for "Goodbye," the album's closing track?
Patrick Brick, the songwriter behind Athens-based one-man electro-pop project Futo, is prepping a new LP, Futo's Greatest Hits. The follow-up to last year's Flagpole fave I Wish I Had Been Born as the Rain That Forms Rivers That Carve Out Canyons will drop Apr. 20.
In 2014, Pylon leader Vanessa Briscoe Hay got the idea to assemble a crack cast of Athens musicians to pay tribute to the music of her legendary new wave band. The group, dubbed the Pylon Reenactment Society, played once that year as part of the inaugural Art Rocks Athens event, then again for the 2015 edition.
Now the band—Jason NeSmith, Kay Stanton, Damon Denton, Joe Rowe and Hay—is embarking on a mini-tour alongside E6 associates Dressy Bessy. The two groups will play the 40 Watt this Saturday, Feb. 20. (Check out this week's feature on the PRS here.)
Today we're pleased to premiere the live video for "Beep," filmed at last year's ARA. Check out the clip, produced by the Art Rocks Athens Foundation, below:
Join us in welcoming Art Contest to Athens.
The duo, which recently relocated to the Classic City from just up the road in Greenville, SC, specializes in twitchy, explosive math-pop, of which we haven't seen much around these parts since the mid-aughts.

Antlered Aunt Lord, the slow-simmering local garage-pop project led by songwriter Jesse Stinnard (also of Tunabunny fame), is all set to release its Ostensibly Formerly Stunted (and on fire) LP Nov. 20 via HHBTM. Today, we're tickled pink to provide y'all with a first taste of the LP via the video for "The Beezwax," the record's fuzz-forward, steadfastly hummable lead single.
Local indie rock outfit The Hernies has existed in some form since 2013, but its lineup has recently solidified into a four-piece unit featuring Henry Barbe, Winston Barbe, Glenn Reece and Evan Amburn. The band is reportedly prepping the release of its debut album, which it hopes to have out early next year.

New Athens/Atlanta four-piece band Houston in the Blind is building some nice buzz in advance of its debut album, Limbs, out Oct. 9 and available to pre-order on Bandcamp. Today, we're pleased to give y'all a taste of the record in the form of "Sleeping Pill," Limbs' heartfelt, minimalist closing number.
