Seventeen ATL Records to Listen for in July

Small Reactions - Hung From WireI feel unprepared and out of it this month. Like I’m missing way too much. Maybe it’s true, maybe not, but I just sense that there’s a lot more music bubbling beneath the surface and it’s getting ready to explode into the light of the world. I don’t know. I have this feeling a lot. Still, I can’t complain. Just look at what’s coming down the pike: for starters, there’t the much-anticipated new EP from Small Reactions, which just happens to come out on the same day as Lazer/Wulf’s debut effort for Retro Futurist, a burgeoning label run by members of Kylesa. Oh, and did I mention that Jason Howell’s sophomore LP comes out on that day as well? July 15, folks. Write it down. Meanwhile, other highlights include a new single from psych rockers the N.E.C. and a four-song EP from David Courtright’s experimental pop project, Suno Deko. But surely this won’t be all. So keep checking this post, as there’s undoubtedly more to come.
