Black Tusk bassist Jonathan Athon has passed away. He was 32.
It is with deep regret and saddened hearts that we must tell you that Athon passed away this morning from injuries sustained from his motorcycle accident. Doctors told us that he suffered irreparable brain damage shortly after the accident. He has been in a coma and sustained by life support until now. As per his wishes, we removed Athon from his life support systems and his organs will be donated. His body will be cremated and a memorial is being planned for family and friends in Savannah. He was 32 years old and will be forever missed. Thank you all for your support during this devastating time for us, it would have made...

I often find myself listening to a lot of indie/folk this time of year, so now is perfect time to share yellowbirddd's new single, "Thinking Out Loud," with you. The singer-songwriter will release his fourth album, CENTINELA, digitally and on vinyl via flower/flour records on December 2nd; you can pre-order it now on bandcamp. If you enjoy the reflective stylings of Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst, you're not going to want to miss this one.
If you take a look at record grooves at around 1000x magnification -- you can see the waveforms of the music itself. You can also check the replies for a video of a record playing under a microscope. Happy Friday everyone!
