The leaves are falling, the Philadelphia air is getting a bit colder, and T.J. Kong & the Atomic Bomb are back with a new  single. The Philly-based folk-rock group drops the new “Mullholland Drive” two weeks before the release of their next LP, Dancing Out the Door, due out October 13th via Good Behavior Records.

The new jam sounds like it could be heard coming from a Cajun steamboat chugging along through the swamps of Louisiana, between its twangy guitar sound and waltzing tempo. The upright bass line adds a strong bottom layer to the track and aids the guitar in incorporating happier country-style major chords to a song that is really about homesickness and the feeling of displacement. The band’s lyrics have been described as “post-apocalyptic” or “haunting” and this record continues the trend in a highly effective way.

The group comes back home to Philly on October 28th for their 8th annual T.J. Kong Halloween Costume Ball Rock N Roll Murdershow. The weirdly raucous event features six bands on two different stages at Underground Arts. The lineup for this year’s “Murdershow” includes Levee Drivers, Tutlie, and more. Check out this Halloween extravaganza by picking up your tickets here.
