Music

GRIP

He’s been called Atlanta’s Next Great Storyteller, and the name couldn’t be more fitting. GRIP has consistently carved a niche for himself within Hip-Hop, starting with his breakout project Porch in 2017, where the East Atlanta native first planted the seed of being known for unclassifiable game-changing music. In 2019, GRIP released Snubnose, a project that changed it all, as his knack for creating concept projects was taken to the next level. His music reached the ears of none other than Eminem, who added the upstart to his Shady Records roster.

His upcoming release I Died For This!? presents an evolved sound, while maintaining GRIP’s love of conceptual themes.

I Died For This!? is an idyllic introduction to those just learning about GRIP and a reminder for existing fans that the musician doesn’t fit a cookie cutter sound and that’s just the way he likes it.

DESERTA

As experimental as it is enthralling, Deserta’s Black Aura My Sun applies the vapor-trailed production values and sublime dynamics of Doty’s previous group projects (including post-rock band Saxon Shore and the synth-laced post-punk of Midnight Faces) to a shoegaze-y sound that splits the difference between Slowdive and Sigur Rós. Deserta expands and contracts in that environment, with chords that drift like clouds, drums that drag and dissipate, and hooks that hang in the air for what feels like forever.

“A dreamy guitar record that you’ll want to turn way up.” – Bob Boilen, NPR

“A modern shoegaze classic.” – Rough Trade

“Likely to be one of the best shoegaze releases of the coming year.” – Post-punk.com

EXPO SEVENTY

Expo Seventy is a heavy psychedelic trio which evolved out of Justin Wright’s solo project Expo ’70 that he conjured in 2003 while living in Los Angeles, California. Wright moved to in Kansas City, Missouri in 2005 and continues to produces music that is sought after by people all over the world. Expo ’70 started out as an experimental outlet and platform for collaborative improvisations and grew into a psychedelic Krautrock-inspired trio, now known as Expo Seventy. Taking cues from obscure 70’s underground music such as Tangerine Dream and Hawkwind, the music projects the listener into other worlds and allows the listener to take their own journey…if they desire.
