Welcome to our first New Music Monday. We’ve struggled here at hissing lawns to keep up with everything we’d like to cover, especially new releases by Savannah acts and by some of our out-of-town faves. Album reviews are time-consuming, and, as a blog totally staffed by volunteers, we just don’t have the resources to do it all.
So today we begin an experiment. Every Monday, similar to many other sites, we hope to have a post with embedded music that seems relevant to our readers. Down the road, we might include more mini-reviews and specify which of our contributors are listening to what, but for this first post, we’re just presenting an unsorted list of some top new releases from the Savannah area and beyond.
Many new records come out on Fridays, so Monday seems like a good day for this weekly post. For the first few weeks, we’re likely to include some “new-ish” music — records that have dropped in recent weeks — but as time goes on we hope to get rid of the backlog.
As you sample some of the music here, please take a moment to click on through to the linked sites — like the bands on Facebook, consider purchases via a website or Bandcamp, add artists to your Spotify playlists. In other words, show your support.
If you’ve got a suggestion for an album, song, or video that we should include in future posts, the best way to reach us is generally via message on the hissing lawns Facebook page.
So let’s get on with it:
Adia Victoria: “Dead Eyes” video from debut album Beyond the Bloodhounds
The Anxiety Junkies: Gentrified Homicide
We’ve got a review in the works.
Car Seat Headrest: Teens of Denial
Night School: “These Times”
New track from upcoming album on the Savannah-based Graveface label.
The Kills: Ash & Ice
Sweden/Bermuda/NJ (with Savannah ties)
