From the southern wilds of Athens, GA comes young four-piece, New Madrid. Their music is a dynamic mixture of underwater-psych-rock that engages the listener in fully textured aural landscapes, both on record and live. Their acclaimed 2012 independent debut, Yardboat – engineered by David Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers) at Chase Park Transduction- displayed the band’s inherent talents and introduces a distinctive sound budding with sonic energy. In their ever-thriving music- mecca hometown, Yardboat garnered “Album of the Year,” and the band’s formula of constant touring and creative restlessness earned them “Artist of the Year” at the Flagpole Music Awards. In the summer of 2013, New Madrid signed to local start-up Normaltown Records, and entered the studio to record what would becomeSunswimmer. Their second full-length finds New Madrid further exploring depths of psychedelia and textured noise.
Plus support from Newton Country and Foreign Affairs.
