Last month, Athens alt-country troubadour Adam Klein released Archer's Arrow, his sixth album. The record, a collaboration with now-defunct Athens band Nutria, had been in the works since 2010; Klein shelved the project for several years, releasing Sky Blue DeVille with his live band, The Wild Fires, in 2013.
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.
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.
Today marks the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans and the surrounding Gulf Coast, killing nearly 2,000 people and dislocating thousands more. To commemorate the date, Athens rock legends Five Eight have released a brand new tune, "The Flood," featuring lead vocals from Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood.
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:

Today marks the official release of the long-in-the-making new album from Athens songwriter/rabblerouser Timi Conley and his Kite to the Moon trio: the expertly named Songs in the Key of OMG. To celebrate the record's release, the band will play the Georgia Theatre rooftop this Friday, Aug. 21, after Moon Taxi plays the inside stage.
Below, check out Songs in the Key of OMG's alt-rocking opening track, "Girl On the Edge of a Seaside Cliff":
