Tame Impala ::: Currents



Tame Impala has a new album. Tame Impala has a new album. Tame Impala has a new album! 

When their first track, 'Cause I'm a Man', was released, my instant reaction was trepidation. I was excited that one of my favorite bands was making new work. That excitement was instantaneously eclipsed by fear that our Australian, psychedelic geniuses would not be able to outdo their 2012 brilliant, shining record 'Lonerism'. As I streamed the track, the fear subsided and I was back in 2012 -  flowing and getting lost in Kevin Parker's meticulous attention to detail; casually mixing and manipulating sounds to complement his sometimes enigmatic lyrics. Except this time, despite the bloops and blorps of producing, one thing was glaringly clear.

Father John Misty ::: I Love You, Honeybear




Dear Diary,

Over the past 24 hours I’ve listened to a man completely expose himself; the good, the bad, the ugly. Father John Misty’s newest album ‘I Love You, Honeybear’ is a true and honest approach about his experience with falling in love with his wife. It isn’t intentionally gushy and is very raw. Love is a beautiful thing but it hasn’t been pretty.

Check out the concert list complete with links to each artists' facebook page as well as direct links to ticket pages and the corresponding Atlanta or Athens concert venue.  We've also added in our recommendation rating for each live show based on artist, ticket price, venue, and other variables!


Friday 01/02/15
Atlanta, GA
Tickets $10 ($13)
Recommendation Rating: 7.5
Surfer Blood changed it up somewhat with their 2013 release of Python. A good album, but it went more towards beachy Blink 182 vibe, but the better version of it. We were able to catch them last year at the Goat Farm opening up for Foals and they put on a good show. I think the gem of this show is catching Nashville mellow noise rockers
Turbo Fruits.
