Sea Wolf and Paper Route, Albums of the Week

Lots of new music releases this week… Sea Wolf and Paper Route are two worth buying!

First… Old War Romance is the third studio album from Sea Wolf, an indie rock band from Los Angeles. You can preview the entire album at SeaWolfMusic.com.

Second… Nashville synthpop rockers, Paper Route, released their second studio album, The Peace of Wild Things.  They headline tonight at The Masquerade in Atlanta and open for Mutemath and Switchfoot on separate tours this fall.

New Music: Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics, Two Gallants and The Sheepdogs

This week’s top 3 new releases are also three artists from our top 9 local shows to see in Atlanta this month.

First… It’s About Time by Atlanta’s own Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics.  Ruby says she grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding and It’s About Time is obviously influenced by those same soulful sounds of the 50’s and 60’s.

Second…  The Blight and The Bloom by San Francisco’s Two Gallants.  Available on ATO Records, The Blight and The Bloom, is this folk-punk duo’s 4th studio album, offering a mix of mellow tunes and raw, scrappy blues rock.

Third…  The Sheepdogs by Saskatchewan, Canada’s The Sheepdogs.  Their 4th studio album, produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, has a sweet southern rock sound, reminiscent of the classic rock bands of the 60’s and 70’s.
