Good Fear to release album this fall 

Good Fear frontman Zach Holland puts late October or early November as a release date for “Dirty Lowdown Adventure,” the follow-up to the band's fantastic debut. Max Recordings will put it out. Holland says it's all over the board stylistically, but with lots of repeating themes and choruses. Dustin Kinsey (White Whale), Cory Branan, Rett Peek, David Slade (American Princes), the future Mrs. Zach Holland (Heather Salley) and several other folks will appear on a big singalong track. Thick Syrup Records has also agreed to release a 7-inch picture disc a month or so after the CD comes out. Holland says it'll likely feature one song by him and another by Todd Gill. Next up for the band in Central Arkansas: a Sept. 8 gig at the Little Rock Zoo with the Easys at 7 p.m.

Little Rock-native Matt Besser plays “Dave” in the forthcoming “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story,” the latest Judd Apatow production. In the mock rock biopic, John C. Reilly stars as Cox, with Besser as his guitarist and Tim Meadows on drums and Chris Parnell on bass. Besser is also slated to appear in the sitcom Kanye West is developing on HBO, in which Besser has been cast as rapper's chauffer. Until then, the video section on Besser's website, www.mattbesser.com, is a source of endless hilarity.

Burgeoning independent video director Jordan Atwater is staying busy. Later this month, she'll shoot a video for Kenny Kapone's “War.” Then in September she'll film Epiphany's “5 Dollas” live at the rapper's show at the Village, and tentatively, she plans to debut her H.A.P.S. (hip-hop, acoustic, pop and soul) TV show on Sept. 15. The launch of the show, which is likely to air late night or early morning on CW and on the web, will also mark the debut of new videos for Epiphany's “Can't Tell,” soulman Tim Anthony's “When They Want You,” acoustic singer/songwriter Elise Davis' “I'm the One,” and Atwater's “Move On.” Look for further details on the Rock Candy blog and in this space in the weeks to come.

Radio Ain't Ready. Volume 2,” the latest local rap compilation from the 4x4 crew, is out now and features most everyone in town.
