Fifteen ATL Records to Listen for in November

deadCAT - TransientualismAfter October’s beautiful deluge, you’d think Atlanta would take a breather and settle down for a moment. But you know how it is. Can’t stop, won’t stop. The good times just keep rolling through with a parade of promising records set to barrel through your speakers in the coming weeks. First off, look down. See that? It’s Big Jesus preparing to unleash the awesome power of the holy riff on all nonbelievers come November 5. And standing right behind them? You’re damn right that’s Death On Two Wheels, themselves no strangers to the purifying strength of heavy grooves and a grimy six-string assault.

Want more? How about a new single from psych-gaze conjurers Spirits and Melchizedek Children featuring a remix from experimental artist and producer Magicicada? Still not satisfied? There’s always the new full length from atmospheric rockers the Romenz looming, or perhaps better yet, some dirty, deconstructed nose-pop jams courtesy of deadCAT. The point is there’s a lot out there to hear and explore—all you need to do is look and listen, capiche?
