New albums from The Selmanaires, Anna Kramer & Lost Cause
The record from The Selmanaires will be called The Air Salesman, and follows their 2005 debut that was a local sensation. If you've been reading here long, you probably know this post-punk quartet is my favorite from Atlanta. They've just wrapped up a tour with Black Lips, and have upcoming shows with those gents as well as Pylon, 63 Crayons, Deerhunter, New Sound of Numbers, and The Coathangers.
The Selmanaires - Reason and Chance [from The Air Salesman]
I'm sooooo looking forward to this record...
The album from Anna Kramer & Lost Cause will be their first under that name, and Anna's second full-length along with a successful 7" on Rob's House Records. This outfit includes Shannon Mulvaney (bass; ex-Magnapop) and Adam Renshaw (drums; ex-Forty Fives) along with the diminutive Kramer. While Anna can work the delicate side of country and R&B all day, I'm told the new record will mostly feature the band's hard rockin' side that makes their live shows kick ass. The first track released indicates that just might be the case:
Anna Kramer & Lost Cause - When You See Him [from The Rustic Contemporary Sounds of Anna Kramer & Lost Cause]
Can't wait to get my hands on this one either. January 22 is going to be sweet.
International Hits is currently selling limited edition 7" releases from each act -- it's $10 for the pair, and I put my order in just minutes ago.
