Atlanta Sound Garden: Mix 3 The Female Voice

This edition of Atlanta Sound Garden is dedicated to the female voice of Atlanta music. The song selections feature female vocalists in tropical indie, ambient pop, punk-tinged experimental metal, and electronic dance.

Adron accomplishes a lush layering of chimerical atmosphere, including bird whistles, waves, and other textures, on “Timid Young Ones,” with her rich, intoxicating voice soaring above it all. Her latest release, Burdwurld is a five song escapade into enchantment and down rabbit holes. Download it for free from her website. http://adron.muxtape.com/

Vocalist, Lindsey Harbour, of Thy Mighty Contract, has the rare ability to sound sweet and sick, in the same song. I adore “Two Cities” for the deceitful bounciness at the start of the track, which soon gives way to quick, erratic drumming that leads into the angst-ridden screams of Harbour, who bleeds out with no remorse, over raging guitars, before the melody finds its way back. Get their self-titled album for free on BandCamp.

Atlanta Sound Garden: Mix 3 The Female Voice by themoonandpluto

The undertone of Nerdkween‘s song,”Let Me Go,” from Profitandloss, is equally melancholy and grievous, even as the lighthearted melody might suggest serenity, especially since Monica Arrington’s voice could soothe the grumpiest among us. The instrumentation on the track is minimal, featuring only a guitar and distant tambourine, heightening the magnificence of the vocals. Nerdkween will be playing at Carroll Street Cafe on Monday, February 7.

La Chansons recently released a remix of “X Marks The Spot” off their 2010 album, King and Queen of the Dance Floor via Stickfigure Recordings. Carson Keller seductively shapes the melody on the remix, called “Read the Map,” as the electronic beats and loops create a dismal  and penetrating dance track. Between the groove and sway of the rhythm and Carson’s enticing voice, you’ll be having fun.

“Tall Shoulders” is an airy little track from Lille, off of the 2010 debut release by the same name via Whale Heart Records. With sparse keyboard tinkles accentuating a mellow ukulele, Grace Bellury concocts a daydream in which her stunning crooning guides you deeper into tranquility. Having recently opened up for The Dresden Dolls at The Buckhead Theatre, Lille is set to mesmerize beyond the local sphere.

Atlanta is serving up something you’ll be craving after being home-bound by this week’s ice fiasco.

Otherwise, you might be happy at Wonderroot with the gypsy-folk nuances of Christ, Lord and the beautiful voice of Adron.

If you’re in the mood for some melodic rock in the vein of Death Cab For Cutie, hit up The Highland Inn Ballroom on Saturday for some New Terminus. Need a dose of dark atmosphere in your music, head to The Earl Sunday night to stare at A.Grimes.
