Fourteen ATL Records to Listen for in May

Dasher - RamboMay might be my favorite month of the year. The rain storms have settled down, the pollen count is mercifully in recession and the temperature is as close to perfect as you can get. Spring is in full swing and I just want to drive around town with the windows down and the music cranked (yeah, I’m that guy, what of it?), and milk as much sun and patio time as humanly possible.

May is also the time when I start picking out my summer jams, when I dig through crates and scour online for those records and songs that are going to provide the soundtrack for all my aimless cruising and any-excuse-for-day-drinking. Luckily for me, Atlanta has me covered, as usual, with an assortment of new music from the likes of noise-punks Dasher and rowdy rockers Concord America. There’s also an opportunity to play catch-up with the Difference Machine digitally releasing last month’s cassette-only remix LP, The Psychedelic Sounds of the Remix Machine, and DIE INDY Records unveiling a split cassette of previously released material from Twin Trances and pigfuck bruisers Pretty Please. All in all it’s a pretty solid list, with plenty more to come, I’m sure.
