mp3 :: ATM > Bad Blood
Mr. Ted McGrath of the now hiatused Antimagic (and ex-These Are Powers) has put together an album under his solo moniker ATM. The EP is called The Slow Fade, and is being released by Temple South (cassette) and Creative Capitalism (digital).
McGrath has fused together numerous influences from punk, no wave, glam, postpunk, art rock and experimental pop to form these sometimes-gritty, sometimes-scary, sometimes-bleak sounds. Two floor toms (one treated, one normal), a snare, an Alesis SR-16 drum machine, a Boss SP 202 sampler, a Fender Jazzmaster, a borrowed bass and other “sundry electronics” are in use here. This is side one, track one.
Downloadable: Bad Blood (mp3)
