Earshot 

Last week, Pitchfork Media, the popular and controversial online music magazine, posted an update on Athens indie-rock band Maserati. The brief story reported that the group has been without a label since Kindercore Records collapsed in 2004.

But that hasn't stopped Maserati from writing new songs for a follow-up to its critically acclaimed debut, The Language of Cities. "We're about two-thirds of the way done," says lead singer Coley Dennis during a phone interview.

Maserati plans to record the album at local engineer Andy Baker's (Japancakes, Mercury Program) home studio in May. After that, the band will shop around the as-yet-untitled album to different indie labels. In the meantime, Athens imprint Hello Sir is reissuing the group's old material, which includes two EPs and a 7-inch single, as well as The Language of Cities, which has sold 5,000 copies to date, according to Dennis. Maserati's next show is March 11 at Caledonia Lounge in Athens, where Dennis works as a booking agent and bartender.

Mastodon recently filmed a video for "Seabeast," the third single from the ever-popular Leviathan album, at the Madison Theater in East Atlanta Village. The clip, which thematically (and metaphorically, I presume) takes a cue from Herman Melville's Moby Dick, is currently being submitted to various video channels for review and should make its worldwide premiere soon.

In CD release parties this week, the good folks at Decatur's New Street Gallery and Recordings are celebrating their New Street Live compilation with a party Fri., Feb. 3, at Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery. Several bands are slated to perform, including Hope for Agoldensummer, Inceptdate, Brian Montero, JuJu B Solomon, Siamese Self, and the Marsh. ... The Roy Owens Jr. celebrates Good Times with a concert Sat., Feb. 4, at Lenny's. Other acts on the bill include Pardner and the Bouldercrest Singing Group.
