New Album From Social Studies

Local experimental hip-hop duo Social Studies just released a new album, “At Arms Length,” which combines hip-hop with heavy doses of psychedelia.

Check out the album on Social Studies’ Bandcamp page, where the band is offering the album on a “name your price” basis.

Maroon 5 Rules in Atlanta Radio

One song by Maroon 5, “One More Night,” has been the most popular song on Atlanta radio for the fourth straight week, according to data from Mediabase 24/7.

Maroon 5’s current tour is set to hit Atlanta next March at the Phillips Arena. The band is currently touring with two other pop groups: Neon Trees and Owl City.

Check It! Pick of the Week

Of Monsters and Men, the Icelandic indie-folk band behind the catchy radio hit “Little Talks,” will be at the Tabernacle this Thursday. The group released its debut album only last year, but has already made appearances at music festivals like Lollapooza and the Newport Folk Festival.

Of Monsters and Men will be supported by Soley, a fellow Icelandic musician known for being in the band Seabear, and Elle King, a guitarist and banjoist and the daughter of actor Rob Schneider.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
