  • Fun Rocker from Native America MP3

    There’s really no typifying the sound of this new Native America single.  There’s definitely a more raucous element than your typical fare, but that breakdown in the end puts the band’s feet in traditional indie rock land. Personally, I’m preferring the grittier elements to the tune, but it also demonstrates how the band’s sound can branch out in varying directions.  That should make the release of their ...

  • Last Postcard Subscription from Art Is Hard MP3

    As I mentioned yesterday, and many times on these pages before, Art Is Hard is one of my favorite little labels working at the moment; I’m quite envious of their work and success.  It looks like they’re closing out the year with their final Postcard Subscription by bringing a new songs from Five Leaf Nettles, which is the project of Best Friends songwriter Jack Collister.  I really love the depth of...

  • The Hot Toddies Bring us Summer in November MP3

    Hailing from Oakland, girl rock band The Hot Toddies certainly know what it’s like to be living in summer weather year round.  It’s nice to think of the 70 degree weather in Cali right now as us poor Texans suffer through our only winter weather week of the year.  So let’s dream big today with this summer inspired tune from the band called “Summertime Blues”.  I can already feel...

  • New Music from Haunted Houses MP3

    As the year winds down, new music to whet your appetite is becoming harder and harder to find, except for some gems that came out at the end of last week.  One of the tunes that caught my attention was this newest jam from Haunted House.  The song is one of the tracks set to fit onto their self-titled EP, which will be released in early 2014; it holds onto a bedroom quality, while still having enough musiciansh...

  • Another Gem from Mathew Cothran MP3

    If you haven’t listened to Mathew Cothran in any of his various projects then I’m going to force you to admit you’ve made some mistakes! Well, okay, I won’t be that forceful, but I’ll continue to promote his work on these here pages.  Recently, the man behind Coma Cinema unleashed a few short songs for our enjoyment on his Failure EP.  I don’t know what it is about his songwr...

  • Art Is Hard Announce Gorgeous Bully EP MP3

    I always keep an eye on what’s going on with Art Is Hard Records; they’re a small time label doing some interesting releases on a small, but exceptional scale.  They just recently announced that they’ll be putting out the new Nobody Hates You as Much as You Hate Yourself  EP by Gorgeous Bully, and the lead track is absolutely something you need to hear.  It’s infectious as any piece o...

  • Twin Peaks Offer New Tune MP3

    You’ve got to appreciate a band with youthful exuberance, as that musical naivete allows for them to go their own direction.  Twin Peaks does just that with their latest single, incorporating various influences to create a hazy bit of guitar pop that’s sure to satisfy every listener.  Sure, the vocals could be just a touch cleaner, but I love the way the guitar lines seem to dance around, leading ...

  • Quiet Number from Eric & Magill MP3

    For an Internet project, trading tracks across continents, the guys in Eric & Magill seem to be working pretty quickly.  Earlier this year they released Two Travelers EP, but they’re already prepping their new record, Night Singers.  Their first single from the release is really a gently unfolding pop tune, using the backbone of carefully picked acoustic guitar.  Vocals are almost whispered, which...

  • Austin Spotlight: The River Has Many Voices MP3

    Our recent post calling out Austin’s live music scene has resulted in a major influx of emails coming our way from tons of local musicians looking for some help with exposure on our site.  To be blatantly honest, most of what we are sent isn’t worth your time, but then we find some gems like Matthew Payne and his project known as The River Has Many Voices.  Payne is an Austin native and has been w...

  • More New Music From Royal Forest MP3

    Royal Forest is an Austin band that has really been making some waves recently as they try to reinvent their sound and mature into their skin as a band.  We here at ATH have taken notice of their hard work and have found new reasons to enjoy the band’s sounds.  Prior to the release date of their new album Spillways on July 9th via King Rock Record Co., the band are offering up yet another new track en...

  • Austin Spotlight: The Whalers Ready New LP MP3

    I’m really excited by the leaps and bounds that The Whalers have made in the past couple of years, and I think their latest single really demonstrates the growth, providing us with one of their best tunes to date.  The band does a great job blending mild bits of Americana with modern indie rock flare, adding both energy and their own unique touches.  Their new record will be available to the masses come ...

  • Welcome Home the Sour Notes MP3

    One of Austin’s hardest working bands, The Sour Notes, have just returned from a good little tour, so we’d like to celebrate that first of all; I’m glad they were able to successfully hit the road.  But, in honor of their return, they’ll be playing at The Blackheart this Friday night (it’s free), so you should all head out in order to welcome them.  In other SN related news, t...

  • New Indie Pop From Dinosaur Bones MP3

    Here’s a nice little pop number called “Spins in Circles” coming your way from Toronto based outfit Dinosaur Bones.  I’m digging the simplicity in the pop sound that can somehow still make the song catchy as hell even after several spins.  You can pick up new album Shaky Dream on August 6th via Dine Alone Records.

  • Proto Punk from TRAAMS MP3

    Bands have a hard time making it all the way overseas, but I’ll gladly share with you this recent tune from TRAAMS.  The Chichester group drops in influences from bands like Mclusky, with pummeling drum lines and jagged guitar licks.  The vocals are a little bit muddy, but they step in line with the guitars and drums, adding an extra bit of force to the energetic number.  The group has just unleashed ...

  • Murray A. Lightburn Drops New Solo Track MP3

    Murray Lightburn from The Dears has always been a guy, and most ATH members would agree, is highly underrated in the indie scene. He has a huge discography with his Canadian band and has always understood charisma and what it takes to be an engaging frontman. Let’s also not forget about his ability to craft unique and rather incredible pop tunes. With that out-of-the-way, you can understand our excitement t...

    Man, the music scene in San Francisco must be pretty hopping, not that it ever really died down.  We just got this new track from The Mallard, which are one of the newer bands to start making waves from the Bay Area, and I’m completely stoked.  This tune has a stuttering guitar/drum line that seems to run through its entirety, while the vocal seems to match that with an off-beat marching delivery.  Th...
