"Following the Landslide," the new CD from Atlanta singer-songwriter Lucas Mire, accomplishes what can often be a difficult task: Many of the tunes deal with loss, but the album leaves listeners feeling more introspective than inconsolable.

"The album deals with loss and grief — mainly around the death of my mother when I was in my early 20s, but also about the end of my last serious relationship," says Mire, who marks the release of his third full-length album with a 7 p.m. show Saturday at Eddie's Attic in Decatur.

Girlyman performs at Eddie's Attic

If anyone is an expert in road traveling, it’s Doris Muramatsu.

On the road for two weeks at the time with her band Girlyman since early 2001, Muramatsu has seen hundred of thousands of miles of America’s asphalt maze — with bandmates Ty Greenstein, Nate Borofsky and newest member JJ Jones in tow.

“We certainly know how to find the best route, how to find good food, and how to Priceline 3.5- to 4-star hotels for $35,” Muramatsu says. “When you travel as much as we do, you learn how to make the road work for you in a more streamlined fashion.”
