The Ginger EnvelopeInvitation Air One Percent By Eileen Tilson Athens-based Ginger Envelope returns with its second full-length, Invitation Air (One Percent). Recorded to a 16-track analog tape, this album turns up the twang factor, showcasing Matt Stoessel’s pedal steel and Patrick Carey’s delicate, lazy, Bob Dylan-esque voice.
Review and photos by Julia Reidy If there had been wires running from the instruments Megafaun (pictured below) and Bowerbirds (three shots, above) played onstage, from their faces and hands to the eyes and ears of everyone in the crowd, you would’ve seen bursts of green light, energy snapping and crackling along the lines all […]

fun.Aim & IgniteNettwerk by Micah McLain Fans of The Format were no doubt devastated when the band announced a hiatus in early 2008. The Phoenix, Ariz. band is known for some of the most melodious, harmonious and downright happy indie pop ever made. Well, it's time to turn that frown upside down, because Nate Ruess […]
Review and photos by Micah Mclain The Drive-By Truckers brought the rock show to the Capital Theatre in Macon Thursday night. Opener Tift Merritt played a great set, although her acoustic-leaning alt-country tunes struggled to find the volume necessary to drown out the loud, rowdy (and borderline rude) crowd that DBT shows have become known […]
The Whiskey Gentry The Whiskey Gentry Self-released By Al Kaufman Yee-Haw!! Only a few months old, and created from the ashes of Missy Gossip, The Whiskey Gentry is here to make you remember how music ought to be. Imagine old time country and gospel meeting punk with just a dash of Vaudevillian flourish, and you start […]
I spent almost nine years of my life working for 99X radio here in Atlanta. It was a great gig. The majority of that time was spent as music director (MD) for the station, which means that I, along with the program director (PD) would, among other things, choose which songs made it to the air, […]
Rhett MillerRhett MillerShout Factory By Al Kaufman One need look no further than the first line of his new self-titled CD to know that Rhett Miller likes playing with words. "Keyboards and keystrokes and keystones and keys," he sings on "Nobody Says I Love You Anymore." The song also includes the clever turn of phrase, […]

The White RabbitsIt's FrighteningTBD Records By Eileen Tilson The White Rabbits must be exhausted. After extensive touring with the likes of Spoon, The Walkmen and Tokyo Police Club, and festival stops at Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Sasquatch, and signing with TBD Records (U.S. home to Radiohead, Other Lives and Hatcham Social) the Brooklyn based six-piece returned to […]
Colin HayAmerican SunshineCompass Records By Al Kaufman Anyone over the age of 30 knows Colin Hay. He was the guy with the lazy eye fronting the reggae influenced pop band Men at Work, who invaded America from Australia with songs such as “Who Can It Be Now?” and “Down Under,” and had us wondering what […]
The Fiery FurnacesI'm Going AwayThrill Jockey By Ben Grad What do The Fiery Furnaces play on I'm Going Away? They play a lot that you've heard on their previous albums, but dulled, continuing the progression towards a more accessible, less challenging, sound that they began with Bitter Tea in 2006. Within minutes, you're reintroduced to […]
Sister Hazel ReleaseRock Ridge Music By Eileen Tilson It has been a decade since Sister Hazel was “happy, happy;” from divorce, to birth and death, every member of the band seems to have dealt with some sort of personal tragedy in the past few years. This turmoil provided plenty to write about for their seventh […]
