Make way for The Awesomelies


I’m not sure if they waited for The Besties to break up before revealing their true magnificence, but the Awesomelies are… awesome, as they say in that there America.

They’re from Athens, Georgia, and are Becky Lovell and Ian Rickert, who, between them have been in Bands That I’ve Never Heard Of like Folklore, Fairmount Fair and New Socks (which is actually a really nice name for a band, isn’t it?)

The reason I’m telling you all this is that the Awesomelies have a free album to download called ‘Make Way’, and it’s full of bouncy, primitive, hypnotic synth-pop songs that you can download for no money at all. Well, what you should do, of course, is donate at their band camp website, but I bet you don’t.

“We'll definitely have more new music later this year after I move back to Athens,” Becky told me. Can’t wait.

I love this album - I must have listened to it about a 378 times since Monday morning.
