my time spent in atlanta spewed forth a ton of life changes aka the kids, and career change, but sadly only gave me one artist/band that i would consider myself a fan of. to be fair, i didnt see many shows, thus not seeing catching the local talent, but i did check out a lot of atlanta bands. sure there are some good ones, dont make me name em, but none of em really clicked with me. that one special guy? mr ben trickey. saw him a few years ago open up for patterson hood, i believe it was, and automatically dug his wares. those wares being a collection of slow, foreboding and sparse songs that even given there often grim exterior, are not total bum-outs and are actually quite the opposite if you just take the time to scratch. his new one come on, hold on is out now, and its definitely one of the best records i’ve heard thus far this year.
new stuff from ben trickey
