What Moon Things - self-titled

Sometimes, Monday mornings ain't so bad. Sometimes, you wake up to a text from Bambara letting you know that your client What Moon Things' Pitchfork review just went live (a thorough, positive 7.3), and your publicist heart starts the day on a good foot.

CLOSED: GIVEAWAY: Wildwood Revival :: July 19

Stay with me til the bottom of the post for entry rules, and ready your camping gear. If you don't want to leave it up to chance, tickets are still available here, but going fast!

Bone music: Soviet-era bootleg X-ray pressings

Around 1946-1961 in the USSR when certain records, say, rock n roll or jazz were banned sounds, resourceful audiophiles salvaged used x-rays from hospital waste bins and pressed the contraband music into the thick exposed film.

CLOSED: GIVEAWAY :: Ice Cream Social by People Who Like To Eat :: June 14

Photo found here

A few months back, some friends and I assembled a little group to put on some fun food events around Athens. We love to eat and explore what our city has to offer, so we three non-chefs formed an organization built on curiosity and enthusiasm. Pressed for a name, we selected People Who Like To Eat.  Our ramen competition was a success, (we raised $1400 for United Way) so we wanted to do something summery, and take a little break from competitive nature. It's too hot outside for that. 

This Saturday, we'll host a good ol' ice cream social on the porch at Five & Ten. All proceeds will go to  one of our favorite non-profits, Wholesome Wave Georgia's SNAP Program. 

A $10 ticket gets you a smattering of interesting ice cream flavors and house-made toppings from Mike Sutton of 5&10, Whitney Otawka of Cinco y Diez, Josh Aaron of Savory Spoon, Gaby Lindsey of Viva! Argentine and Matt Palmerlee and Eddie Russell of Coterie & Tie, all on Hugh Acheson's cozy Milledge restaurant's porch and lawn. Bring dad, and call it early Father's Day. I won't even tell him if you win the free pair of tickets from Arrowhead. 

You may not want to leave things up to chance, though. The last event sold out in advance! Order tickets here.

k i d s - "Take Forever"

Stream k i d s new album, Take Forever, below. The title is a clever continuation on the joke running through their other releases, k i d s "are US" and k i d s "These Days." Psychedelic, dreamy pop, this is the soundtrack to a hip happening you wish you were at, but your parents probably hadn't even met yet, and you were at least 20 years from showing up on the scene.

Casette is available now, and vinyl lands this summer.
