Recorded partially in Pennsylvania and partially here in Athens at Japanski Studios, “Guts” is T Stamp’s new album coming out this week via Quality Faucet Records. Quality Faucet is made up of a gaggle of local artists (Reptar, Wyatt, Co Co Ri Co, etc.) all leaning towards that more experimental sound that’s taken hold of Athens lately.
Tumbleweed Stampede fit right in with QFR, bringing a combination of light-hearted frivolity and delightful harmonies along with them. You can take a sneak peek of the album over on the band’s bandcamp page. If you find some of Tumbleweed’s label mates a bit hard to swallow, you needn’t worry about these guys. They resemble the finer E6 bands instrumentation wise. There’s a bit of Reptar in there too but it’s more lyric and less dance than that. A pretty nicely balanced band I’d say. Give ’em a try at Tumbleweed Stampede’s cd release show is this Thursday at Caledonia.
