Philadelphia based, Athensville, release their modern rock debut LP, "Undressing Minds For Show"




“Athensville blends indie rock musicality with brilliantly addictive and passionate songwriting. ‘Undressing Minds For Show’ is a powerful full-length album, with an air of familiarity but a clear edge of fresh identity as well." - Stereo Stickman “Easy Enough” Featured on WHYY’s House Concert Series



Philadelphia, PA – Indie alt-rock outfit, Athensville, announce the release of their debut modern rock LP, Undressing Minds For Show, the follow up to their 2018 EP, Proper. The authentic and evocative eleven original songs were recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 by producer DerekChafin at Newtown Square’s BarnSound Studios. The album highlights the layered sonic textures of Dave Perry’s modern guitar tones, the fervent, melodic performance of vocalist and guitarist, Matthew Taglang and the driving rhythms of bassist Mark S. Walsh and drummer James Farrell. Thematically, the songs address political angst, the band’s world view and embracing what’s right in front of you, in contrast to gazing into the distance and the inevitable unknown.


The acoustic guitar driven, “Easy Enough” was recorded live, in studio at BarnSound and featured on WHYY’s House Concert Series.


“If you have to go through a pandemic, you really should be recording a rock and roll album (or whatever your version of the most exciting thing you can do is,)” says Taglang. “It really gave us all something fun and positive to focus on during those early months where it seemed like the world was ending. It truly kept me going.”
