Atlanta’s Subsonics have released their eighth full- length album, Flesh Colored Paint, via Slovenly Recordings. It’s available digitally and on CD & vinyl, and is streaming on Spotify.
Called “the best band in Atlanta” by fellow Georgians Black Lips, Subsonics have been crafting their own brand of minimal, off-kilter rock since 1992.
The band is led by the playful vocals of frontman Clay Reed, whose wry and often surreal lyrics are accompanied by straightforward instrumentation: simple guitar lines, drummer Buffi Aguero’s minimalist percussion, and a solid foundation provided by bassist Rob DelBueno (of Man Or Astro-man?). Their new album draws from various decades of pop culture and literature — the band cites everything from Chucky Berry, Richard, and Johansen to Magazine, kung fu flicks, advertising jingles, and The Bible as inspiration.
Subsonics will perform at this year’s Burger Boogaloo (6/30- 7/1.)
Stay tuned for tour dates and all updates.
