This week marks the release of ‘Free Radical’, the fourth full-length studio album from MammaBear, the music project led by Kyle Gordon, who wrote and sings lead on all seven of the tunes, in addition to contributing drums and percussion, guitars, and bass. ‘Free Radical’ was originally recorded at Gordon’s home on an 8-track recorder during the pandemic and later finished in the studio, supported by renown local allies Benjamin J. Davidow (Gas Hound, Phantom Electric, The Buzzards of Fuzz), Josh Longino (Disapyramids, Gringo Star), and Tony W. Belser (Bloodplums), whose talents give this record a real band vibe.
There is so much good music happening all around Atlanta this holiday weekend. One show to which you should treat yourself is on Saturday September 4 as Smith’s Old Bar hosts The Ladies Of…

Tomorrow Saturday August 21 at @smithsoldebar !

RAH is playing tomorrow Thursday August 19 at @wallerscoffeeshop. Real improvisational instrumental music. No show is the same. Each is a different ride. Mark Ross (Keys), Kent Aberle (Drums), and Will Hollifield (Sax) must have some mind-meld thing going on when they play because they can deliver the goods. Check out their show as well as some of their recorded gigs on Bandcamp.com
