Athens band New Madrid has spent much of the past year on the road in support of their debut LP, Sunswimmer. Part of that time is documented on Dawn Teeth Rattling, a live EP engineered by David Barbe and released on Record Store Day.
Today, we've got the premiere of the official video for "Manners," a Sunswimmer standout that appears in live form on the RSD EP.
Athens-based four-person rock band Saline describes its sound as "shoegrease." Listening to the group's debut EP, Dumb, the term starts to make some sense. A spaced-out, mid-fi blend of post-rock, nervy punk, Pinback precision and fuzzed-to-fuck guitar drama, Dumb is a promising start from a band whose live show has already begun to turn heads around town.
Athens band Wieuca has slowly, steadily carved out a spot in the scene by transforming its once-boilerplate indie rock sound into something psych-addled, pop-minded and altogether more exploratory. Hints of krautrock dot "Pressure Head," the group's new single, which you can stream below:
Good news for fans of defunct local hip hop group Mad Axes: One of that act's founding members, Louie Larceny, is gearing up to release White Love, a 12-track effort recorded, mixed and mastered by Joel Hatstat, this fall.
Earlier this week, Larceny posted the album's moody, menacing first single, "White Money," tohis Bandcamp page. Today, Flagpole is pleased to premiere the song's stylish video.
Athens roots-folk duo Cicada Rhythm are gearing up to release a new 7-inch, Two Wings (Live From Mt. Zion Church) this week via Normaltown Records. Today, we're pleased to premiere one of the record's two tracks: the spectral "Wait Till Morning."
Athens musician Phelan LaVelle is one busy bee. In addition to fronting Shade, the excellent local groove-punk outfit that recently finished recording its sophomore album with Chase Park Transduction honcho David Barbe, she sings and plays bass in Crunchy, a similarly spaced-out rock and roll duo. On Saturday, June 27, she will debut Scrunchie, a Crunchy spin-off, as part of Go Bar's AthFest showcase.
In total, LaVelle's three projects will play five shows over the course of this weekend, which makes today a fine occasion to premiere the video for "DUOP," a stonerrific tune from Crunchy's upcoming Spicy World EP.

As Gordon Lamb reported in last week's Threats & Promises, hard-hitting Athens rock trioMotherfucker is gearing up to release its debut full-length, Confetti, July 30 via Chicago label Sick Room Records.
A couple weeks back, the band posted three songs from the album to its Bandcamp page, and now Flagpole is happy to premiere the official video for the record's blistering title track.
Over the past few months, the band has released a steady stream of videos for many of the songs on the record, and today, we're happy to premiere the clip for Mind Brains' lead-off track, "Happy Stomp."

Athens-based alt-rock band Grand Vapids has quickly established itself as a force on the local scene, gigging tirelessly and releasing a fantastic debut LP, Guarantees, earlier this year (Flagpole review).
Today, we're pleased to premiere a video for the album's lead single, the thunderous "Adequate."

Vibrant and volatile Athens-based psych-rock supergroup Dark Meat burned brightly and toured hard for several years in the late aughts before its players scattered and the band called it quits. But recently, a majority of members found themselves back in Athens for the wedding of two of their own, and decided to lay down one last jam.
