Six ATL Records to Listen for in December

The Electric Nature - Winter JamConsidering the dearth of releases currently on this list, I’m going to consider this a mere jumping off point and assume there is a lot more to come from Atlanta music as we head into the thick of the holiday season. Not that I’m turning up my nose at new jams from the Electric Nature or Lowbanks or at that debut EP from Dead Fiero (featuring ex members of post-rock explorers Capillaries). Far from it. Things feel sparse is all. Especially when you compare it to the bonanza of new music we’ve been getting hit with over the past couple of months. But maybe it’s what we need. A lull. A break. A few moments to catch our breath before we all find ourselves drowning in the inevitable deluge of year-end lists and 2014 forecasts and predictions. I learned a long time ago to take it as it comes. Because the music will never stop coming. There’s always old stones that need to be turned over and forgotten alleyways to venture down. And the next wave of albums, singles and EPs is always just around the corner.
