RAT BABIES Live from Ellijay for October release!

RAT BABIES are a dark psychedelic, bass-heavy, guttural screaming, foamy-slobber spitting, sweat-stained, drum-n-bass, swamp noise, two-piece sludge/doom band out of Athens GA. Rat Babies have been around since early 2005. The current lineup features original members Mux Blank on bass/vocals/noise and T. Chodd on drums/percussion.  

Side A:
Drunk on Dreams
Side B:
Bury a Friend
I Know

You can listen AND watch RAT BABIES Live from Ellijay right now on New Ellijay TV.

What have others said about RAT BABIES?

“slow-churning, anxiously abrasive… self-described as “psychedelic-doom-noise,” and that’s pretty accurate, although I’d argue there’s a solid sense of melody in most of their stuff, even if it’s not laying right there on the surface.

Gordon Lamb, Flagpole Magazine

“sludgy bayou animosity in the vein of Melvins with a Halloween Town, stumbling from the graveyard with an armload of shovels, feel. The rhythm is slow and the lyrics are dark and repetitive battles with depression and substance addiction– driven home with a plodding and brutal momentum and a bass distorted to Jackson Pollock fog. Think of Atrayu pulling futilely at the reins of Artax as he sinks ever lower into a Swamp Of Sadness where lilly pads sprout hypodermic needles and the sun falls brown through soot stained clouds. A personal apocalypse with every track”

David – The Athens Secret Admirer

And the First Cassette Headed Your Way Is…

Put on a Show – Live at the Gilmer County Playhouse from Spirits Republic!

March also marks the one-year anniversary of Put on a Show, our live monthly variety show at The Gilmer County Playhouse.

We figured the perfect way to celebrate is by releasing some exclusive music from that initial show, and Spirits Republic’s awesome blend of styles is a great complement to the creativity and craft Cassettes for Me looks to offer.

If you haven’t signed up, you’ll have until March 15 to get your order in. Sign up soon, because the sooner you do, the sooner we can send your cassette!
