Review for New Madrid:

The Athens, Ga. quartet New Madrid is rightfully considered one of the brightest groups emerging from Athens' storied scene, with compelling music that mixes elements of post-punk, psychedelic rock, pop and grunge, all with a Southern sensibility. Drawing heavy influence from alt-country and noise-rock alike, these four young performers (originally from Chattanooga and Nashville) create captivating soundscapes that are simultaneously dense and expansive. With reverb-drenched vocal harmonies that soar over a lush and textured musical patchwork, New Madrid evolved seamlessly from bedroom project to polished product, exploring the depths of psychedelia and noise. 

In their music mecca hometown, their acclaimed 2012 independent debut album Yardboat garnered "2013 Album of the Year," and the band's formula of consistent touring and creative restlessness earned them "Artist of the Year" at the Flagpole Music Awards in both 2013 and 2014.  

New Madrid’s third and latest album released last year on Normaltown Records, magnetkingmagnetqueen, takes a wide swath of influences ranging from the guitar tangle of Television and the tripped-out introspection of Yo La Tengo, to the angular experimentation of Can and the harmonic bath of Magical Mystery Tour; and combines them into something entirely unique.
