HI, THERE. HELLO: New Athens label Avenue Noise and Sound had already distinguished itself with the cool Live in the Lobby release from The Pink Stones back in March, but there’s a new digital platter that just came out under the imprint that deserves some attention, too. It’s titled What’s Behind You, and is by Telemarket. Members include label founders Hunter Pinkston (The Pink Stones) and Adam Wayton, as well as Pink Stones member Jack Colclough. This EP is of twin, yet entirely mixed, personalities that blend quite well. First, there are softly strummed pop tunes like the title track—which also features a fuzzy wormhole of a wah-pedal midsection—and the second track “Wait (the Jordaan Hipster Song).” Then—and this is the only real example of this here—there’s the grunge/garage blast of “Dynamite Girl” and the mid-tempo and semi-submerged “Red Heron.” The only wishy-washy track is closer “Nothing At All,” which feels sloppy and half-finished, even though it has likely the most complicated arrangement of any of these songs. Quite honestly, if Sarah Records and Creation Records had ever agreed to do a split release, this would have been it.
