Generationals w/ Arum Rae     

Where: The Drunken Unicorn, Atlanta, GA

The final version of Alix materialized as perhaps Generationals’ most confident record yet, full of history and as multiphase as Ted and Grant’s friendship. Built up with layer upon layer of rhythmic lines, computer noises, RZA beats, and poppy vocals that sometimes sound like a Janet Jackson/Prince face- off, Alix is everything T&G like about music: old and new, vinyl and youtube, vocal chord and microkorg, gathered up from everywhen and arranged with great care into a good-smelling, subtly sexy, catchy-or- die mish-mosh of sensibilities and time-warp senselessness, lightly peppered with that signature Swiftian element, but undeniably Generationals in taste. As Swift had decreed: ‘tis a good idea to tear down and rebuild, but it’s not always necessary to start from scratch.

Perfume Genius w/ Matteah Baim

Where: The Drunken Unicorn, Atlanta, GA  

Over the course of two astonishing albums, Perfume Genius, aka Seattle native Mike Hadreas, cemented his place as a singer-songwriter of rare frankness, creating songs that, while achingly emotional, offered empathy and hope, rather than any judgment or handwringing. Sparse, gorgeous and with Hadreas’ quavering vocals often only accompanied by piano, they were uncommonly beautiful tales of a life lived on the dark side – scarred, brutalised, yet ultimately, slowly but surely reclaimed.

Mandolin Orange with special guest, Josh Oliver    

Where: Eddie’s Attic, Decatur, GA  

On Mandolin Orange’s third release, This Side Of Jordan, there’s a Lightnin’ Hopkins lyric, “If fate’s an old woodpecker then I’m an old chunk of wood.” “I love the imagery that creates,” Andrew Marlin, the duo’s lyricist says, “You just picture death as this woodpecker that lands on your shoulder and starts chipping away at you until there’s finally nothing left.” In 2011 around the release of Mandolin Orange’s acclaimed Haste Make/ Hard Hearted Stranger, Marlin had a near fatal accident. “It was scary,” Emily Frantz, the other half of the North Carolinian duo says, “But ultimately it brought us together during a time when we needed a nudge in that direction.”

Slothrust w/ Ricer

Where: The EARL, Atlanta, GA     

Formed amidst the ashes of Leah Wellbaum’s solo project, entitled Slothbox, Slothrust was forged with drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann. Thanks to their adept jazz & blues backbone, Slothrust plays deceivingly clever rock with a relentless, punk-as-fuck aesthetic. Though commonly compared to Sonic Youth and Nirvana, Slothrust plays a trickier game than its grunge-revivalist peers. From tender to thrashing and from dark to dorky, Slothrust is a band at constant play with its sonic dynamics and emotional spectrum, yet still manages to weave in ear-worming, cathartic hooks. The band’s second full-length release, Of Course You Do, was released in February 2014 on Ba Da Bing as a follow-up to their 2012 self-released album,Feels Your Pain.

Bob Sima   

Where: Eddie’s Attic, Decatur, GA  

What Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Jack Canfield are to books, Bob Sima is to music. Indeed he has even been called “Eckhart Tolle with a guitar”. The Transformational Troubadour is a teacher, a guide, and a mystic, but through the medium of melody. His music bridges daily life and soul consciousness. When Sima opens his mouth to sing, what emerges is far beyond the human sounds of his warm and soulful voice. He speaks the language of the Universe, the language of the soul, the language of the heart. But he’s not just singing to his audience. He is the musical navigation that guides people to reconnect to themselves and to each other.
