AMG’s Top Atlanta Releases of 2010

Hey! It’s another Best of 2010 List! We almost chose to forgo the usual list-making duties that every writer/blogger/music-lover/mother-and-your-brother goes through at this time of year, but we just couldn’t stop ourselves from giving these locals another lil’ pat on the back for making us rock out, chill out, and groove on a bit more […]

CD Review: citizenGreen — Ulterior Motives

citizenGreen Ulterior Motives Nophi Record/dPulse By Eric Chavez With its distinct, haunting qualities, Ulterior Motives, the new EP by citizenGreen could be one of the best Atlanta-based produced records of the year. Not the typical southern sound of rap or indie rock, citizenGreen ventures off into a space of minimalist electronica. And even though the […]

CD Review: The Dirty Guv’ners — Youth Is in Our Blood; Playing Smith’s Olde Bar, January 15

CD Review: My Chemical Romance — Danger Days; Playing The Tabernacle, May 11

My Chemical Romance Danger Days: The True Lies of the Fabulous Killjoys Reprise By Al Kaufman It’s been four years and numerous personal problems since My Chemical Romance released their last studio CD, The Black Parade. During that time, My Chemical Romance have grown and matured. Guitarist Frank Iero said when the band started out […]

CD Review: Regina Spektor — Live in London

Regina Spektor Live in London Sire By Al Kaufman Regina Spektor is an acquired taste. While most often compared to that other weird piano playing diva, Tori Amos, Spektor comes across as more appealing, and possibly slightly wackier. Spektor’s CDs have always been a mix of sheer beauty, idiosyncrasies, and sometimes downright annoyances. Live, the […]
