Red Sea, Mood Rings, the Clap 

When: Mon., Aug. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
Atlanta's Red Sea celebrates the digital release of its latest single, "Tandem Stye.” In the time between releasing the Weird Problem EP in November 2010, it’s clear that the group has been listening to a lot less Ariel Pink and a lot more This Heat, Gary Numan, and old Genesis records, and it’s all being filtered into a darker, noisier sound. The reverb has been substantially stripped away, and the group has placed an emphasis on fleshing out its melodic sensibilities. They even make an earnest attempt at singing three-part harmonies, but remember, it’s just a demo. The sound is dreary, and nowhere as dreamy as the older numbers, and if you listen to it through and through, you'll notice that the song functions as a sonic palindrome of sorts, dropping you off right where it picked you up. Mood Rings and the Clap also perform.
