Secretly-Important Gave a Thoughtful Review of The Mama Rags' Brand New EP, 'Hectic Electric'

“I went into Hectic Electric mostly blind and excited, what I got was an album that produced a nostalgic and visceral experience that recalled a music style that seemed so firmly forgotten in the past that for a modern band to harness and experiment with that sound feels like something totally new and amazing.”

+Aziz's RMDN Goes Global with the Start of Ramadhan

+Aziz is a Kuwaiti songwriter residing in New Orleans.

His first work SoHo Spirit, is a collaborative work synthesizing the experience of becoming immersed in the energy of Manhattan’s West SoHo neighborhood, which is accentuated by the presence of high-end brands like La Colombe and Rick Owens. Although trips to the Arabian Peninsula (Khaleej) region were frequent, the bulk of the album was performed and recorded in 250 Hudson St. where +Aziz built a near-idyllic lifestyle for a period of time stretching between 2011 and 2013.

He interweaves alternative rock guitar tones inspired by southern folk music against a backdrop of contemporary Middle Eastern percussion and beats. With an identity that oscillates between Arab-American and native Khaleeji, +Aziz is working across vocabulary from 90’s alternative rock and folk music.

His debut EP offers a uniquely textured voice, robust melodies, boisterous rhythms, and a variety of musical styles. He sings in English, Kuwaiti dialect and formal Arabic.

Kicking off with the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan, his debut single “RMDN” is in English and will be released June 17th. The single is inspired by the feeling of fasting alone and comes across as an ode to the inherent hierarchy of social media.

Nooga included The Mama Rags' Brand New EP, 'Hectic Electric' in Their List of "Four Records You Should Hear This Week"

““Hectic Electric” mixes the best of what we think of when we talk about hard rock’s origins and mixes it with a modern sense of rhythmic production.”

Dead Confederate by Jason Thrasher

AthFest Artist Spotlight: Dead Confederate

The Georgia Theatre will be rocking hard into the wee hours of the morning this AthFest with local favorites Dead Confederate playing a 12:45 AM set. Since 2006, Dead Confederate has been serving up a local brew of alternative, alt-country, grunge, and psych rock all over the country. The band, an old school five piece rock outfit, has toured extensively as headliners, with acts like REM and Dinosaur JR and on stages such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, and The Late Show With Conan O’Brien. They’ve consistently drawn positive comparisons to Nirvana and My Morning Jacket, while being celebrated for their uniquely sprawling Southern Gothic style.

Since their inception, Dead Confederate has released three EPs and three full length albums, the latest being 2013’s In The Marrow. Paste Magazine described the album as a “testament to how tortured souls often write the sweetest hooks” and praised the haunting quality of Hardy Morris‘s vocals. In their review, PopMatters described the album as evoking “the dark, murky swamps of the American South and all the doom they entail”. Since releasing In The Marrow, Dead Confederate has stayed busy playing festival and tour dates, as well as branching off into multiple solo/independent projects.

Check out the band performing “Guns” here:

Head down to the Georgia Theatre on Friday, 6/26 to catch Dead Confederate at AthFest 2015
