VOTD: Shitty/Awesome, 'Hang Up'

‘That’s the waaaaayyyy we becaaaaaaaame the Shitty/Awesome Bunch!’


Local noise-rock/record store dudes Shitty/Awesome go all “Brady Bunch” on us with this one. I can’t remember if it was Jan or Marcia I developed a crush for when I was a kid and addicted to Nick at Nite.

Gotta be Marcia.—Matt Carney

Balkans — Balkans

Buzzy, noisy Atlanta band shows promise, guitar chops.


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Musically, I’m a sucker for many things. Chief among them is anything related to post-punk and garage rock. Bloc Party was my off-ramp from Linkin Park, while No Age and Wavves have dominated my total plays on iTunes for about two years now.

Big Boi — Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors


Hip Hop/Rap

Ryan Querbach
Atlanta rapper and one-half the legendary duo Outkast, Big Boi has released his new solo project, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. It’s far from a typical hip-hop album; every song has a different feel to it, sometimes even stepping outside of the genre.
