Band finds therapeutic benefits of making music Multiplexor releases expressive new album

By Bradley Hartsell

Allowing music to aid in releasing tension is a concept commonly applied in life. This notion is what brings many local musical groups together to kick around old tunes for a good time. More often than not, though, the “garage band” or the yetto-be-discovered grouping, has little inclination to pursue the cathartic hobby as anything more than just that — a hobby. Occasionally, however, the part-time interest becomes much more. Multiplexor, a band formed by Newnan local Kyle Coleman, has continued to build momentum — and passion — since 2011. Kyle Coleman, PJ Elias and Nathan Stone actually began playing music together after meeting at Northgate High School. In fact, Coleman had been writing Multiplexor songs years before Stone and Elias ever even k new t he ba nd existed. Coleman would record every instrument onto his laptop, starting with guitar, then drums. Eventually, he created his first album, “If I Told You Everything,” and with a

full album to present, Coleman recruited his close friends and frequent collaborators. “I went to high school with PJ. We played in a church band way back then,” Coleman said. “I actually joined PJ’s band in 2007, with Nathan on drums.” “I didn’t know how Multiplexor [as a full band] was going to go,” Coleman added, “There is some technicality to my music, which I thought might be difficult to recreate with other people. Ultimately, though, it’s important we had the feel of a band, not just recreating what was in my head.” PJ Elias recalls a little less apprehension regarding the music being originally created by Coleman alone. “I think the fact that we’re all best friends supplements Kyle’s having written all the music. That’s what makes it a band,” said Elias. “We all love the music and have a close connection. As a group, we miss out on the writing process, but we’ve been playing together since high school in one form or another, so it’s kind of a family thing. It completes the band aspect.” “If I Told You Everything” came out in May 2011, and by June, Multiplexor had booked its first show. The band iden-

tified with the Atlanta punk scene and continues to play the majority of its shows within city limits. T he members of Mu lt iplexor consider themselves “emo revivalists,” the music harkening back to an era of high energy music with confessional lyrics. The height of popularity spanned the late ‘90s through the mid 2000s, before tapering out into a forgotten fad. Recently, bands like Multiplexor have resuscitated the sounds of their heroes. The band unites with Coleman’s vision, thriving off his writing and collaborating on an overall sound. “Kyle’s been the nervous system for us,” explained Elias. “It’s not always easy but it’s fun. Whenever there’s a new song, I can’t wait to listen to it and learn it.” “I’ll write the shell of the songs and the ideas, but I like f leshing out the songs with other people. By now, the guys know what I like. We can work together now and be more fluid,” said Coleman. As for goals for the new year, Coleman wants to be “more of a band.” “I want to take it seriously

Moreland to host annual Good Luck Dinner

Chunky Chicken, Vegetable and Rosemary Stew Kaiya Hill, left, and Clair Lynn Kight put up a poster promoting Chillabration, which will be held at the Moreland Mill on Jan. 18.

Chillabration to blend pork, greens, fun Pork, greens and peas are part of the “good luck” traditions practiced on New Year’s — and now are the fare for a new event in Moreland. Chillabration will be held Jan. 18 at the Moreland Mill. The menu for the Good Luck Dinner will include smoked pork, fresh greens, blackeyed peas and cornbread. Tickets for plates are $8 and can be purchased in advance from the Historic Moreland Mill, the Huddle House at Exit 41 on I-85, Moreland Surplus Sales and Auction House and the Coweta County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Tickets will also be sold at the mill the day of the event. The meal will be served from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Chillabra-

tion will include live music, hayrides and a bonfire. Proceeds will benefit Team Georgia, Transplant Games of America and the Moreland Cultural Arts Alliance. The ticket price will include the meal, a drink and entertainment and activities. There also will be a dessert bar prepared by members from AllenLee Memorial United Methodist Church in Lone Oak. “We’re featuring greens because that’s the traditional New Year’s good luck food,” said Carol Chancey of MCAA. Dick Ford, Moreland’s new mayor, has had a heart transpla nt a nd is a Tra nspla nt Ga mes at h lete. He joi ned forces w it h Ch a ncey a nd other MCAA volunteers to put

together the idea for a January event. Volunteers are getting out the word to “encourage all organ recipients and donors to come,” Ford said. “There are a lot of recipients — and donors. I run into them all the time.” Ford said mid-January is a good time for an event like Chillabration. People have gotten over the Christmas rush. They have been indoors because of the cold, and they are ready for something to do. “We want to make this an annual event where you can come and meet your family and friends,” he said. “It will be a fun thing for us just to get together.”

Family Features Sports nutrition isn’t just the domain of professional athletes — for a good workout and quick recovery, every­day athletes need the right diet, too. “A good workout is draining and can lead to fatigue and sore muscles,” said Michele Macedonio, R.D., C.S.S.D.,

n Make

L.D. a veteran sports nutritionist and team dieti­tian for the Cincinnati Reds. “The right combination of foods helps restore energ y a nd nutrients used during exercise, and prepares your body for the next workout.” Dishes such as these from CanolaInfo provide complex carbohydrates, fiber and protein with nutrition-packed

ingredients including whole grains, beans, nuts, fruits and plenty of vegetables. Each delicious recipe contains less than 300 calories per serving and is prepared with heart-smart canola oil to supply healthy unsaturated fats, including monoun­s atu­ rated and omega-3 fats.

Know the Score

friends with fat: Fat is an important energy source for athletes, but it’s important to choose healthy fats. Canola oil, for example, provides a valuable source of unsaturated fats, including monounsaturated and omega-3 fats.

n Pump

up protein: Maximize muscle growth with a snack that contains carbo­hydrates plus 10 to 20 grams of protein consumed within 15 to 30 minutes after a workout, when muscle is most receptive to growing.

n Don’t

ignore complex carbs: Athletes need healthy carbohydrates, the pre­ferred source of energy for active muscles. Whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruit are good sources.

n Feed

the furnace: Running on empty? Your body needs consistent fuel to func­tion. A small preworkout snack may improve your workout performance. Liquid foods such as smoothies digest more quickly than solids, which makes them ideal pre- or post-workout for energy, hydration and restoring nutrients.

Community Connection

‘But we just got on’ There is some unwritten rule that columnists must address whatever big event is happening at the time. This is especially true with holidays. We have to write what we’re thankful for, or make fun of family in the Thanksgiving column, and so forth. As the Little Black Dress has pointed out on more than one occasion, I never met a rule I liked. This is more so for journalists in this country who thankfully have the First Amendment. We have freedom of the press and we should be able to write whatever we want to. Or as Admiral David Farragut said at the Battle of Mobile Bay during the Civil War, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” Or holidays, in this case. Sorry, I get carried away someti mes on t hat whole press freedom issue. Where was I? Oh yes, my New Year’s resolution column.

I have never been big on all those New Year year resolutions — especially right at the start of the new year. It ’s not li ke Ja n. 1 rolls around and you are suddenly — shazam! — a completely different person. Part of the problem is that new resolutions take time. You don’t just suddenly lose those 35 pounds, and the new stamp collection you’ve always wanted to start only has two stamps (and you pulled those out of the kitchen drawer.) You’ve yet to buy that bagpipe, much less know where to get one. And then there’s the problem of finding someone in America other than in Boston who can teach you how to play it. Personally, I don’t understand how you can only make changes in your lifestyle starting Jan. 1. Why can’t you start making changes on any of the other 364 days, or 365 days if

JOHN WINTERS it’s a Leap Year? For me, I like to go slow on any resolution. Ease into it, so to speak. It, whatever “it” resolution is, will happen. Eventually. More important for me, as dad to the SONS of Thunder, is to help them work on their resolutions. I brought this up with the SONS the other day. “I want you guys to work on not arguing as much, especially with your mom,” I said. “We don’t argue.” “Yes you do.” “No we don’t. Quit hitting me.” “You hit me first.” “Did not.” “Dad!!!!” And we’re off to a good start. I also suggested they spend a little less time in the virtual world and, instead, maybe visit reality a wee bit more. I am, of course, speaking

of the absurd amount of time the SONS have spent killing zombies, building castles in Minecraft, and a host of other games. Their excuse is that it’s the holidays and they are on break and we — or Santa — delivered them on Christmas and … “You don’t realize how long you guys play those games,” I try again. “But we just got on,” is the go-to response. If I had a quarter (I know it’s a nickel but we’re adjusting for inflation) every time I heard that phrase … “You’ve been on for four hou rs ,” I ’l l respond , a nd immediately get blasted from every corner with the aforementioned phrase. And with that, I have my New Year’s resolutions. I am banning the phrase “but we just got on” and any semblance of said phrase. And I’m going to get a timer and attach a very, very loud siren to it. Just so we all know when enough virtual time is enough.

Looking ahead T he cha mpag ne bott les have hit the recycling bin, the resolutions are mostly intact, the Christmas trees are mulched, and the last chorus of “Auld Lang Syne” has been croaked. Say hallelujah, y’all. The year 2013 is finally in the history books. And some people couldn’t be happier. They’re the ones you see standing on the corner wringing their hands and clutching their insurance cancellation notices and whining that 2013 was “the worst one ever.” In some cases, that’s true. But history shows that the good years and bad have a way of balancing out over time. And even in “the worst one ever,” people found reasons to celebrate and smile. In 2013, many people lost loved ones. Only the passage of time can ease that pain. But in 2013, babies were born and couples were married and soldiers came home from war alive. The overhaul of America’s health care industry resulted in millions losing

their health insurance coverage or paying more to keep what they had. On the bright side, Russia didn’t invade anyone, no hurricanes hit the Gulf Coast, and Boston came back from a terrorist bombing to win the World Series. Face it, if the biggest problem anyone encountered in 2013 was the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, then 2013 wasn’t so bad after all. Don’t believe it? Let’s take a look at what happened during some other years that ended in the number three. A growing number of Americans are 100 years old or more. They were alive in 1913, when the 16th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified. Said amendment created the income tax. Today, it’s hard to understand why more tax money was needed since the entire 1913 federal budget was less than $1 billion. Today, the US spends $405 million per hour. In 1923, a young German fellow named Adolph Hitler started a five-year prison sen-

ALEX mcrae tence. Eight months later he was out of the clink with a new book called “Mein Kampf” and a taste for political power. Play “hunt the blessing” with that one. Today we complain — and rightly so — about unemployment hovering around 8 percent nationwide. In 1933, the worst year of the Great Depression, unemployment hit 25 percent. People had trouble saving seven pennies for a loaf of [unsliced] bread. By 1943, US soldiers were dying by the thousands in Europe and the Pacific, and bac k home , sho e s , me at , cheese, butter and cooking oil were rationed to keep supplies flowing to the troops. Good news? No one complained. In 1953, things were actually swell. The war was over, inflation was 1 percent, cars went for $1,500 bucks and Communist poster boy Joe Stalin died.

In 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. That was enough. Gas prices soared and lines at the pump stretched around the block following the first OPEC oil embargo of 1973. In 1983 noted playwright Ten nessee Wi llia ms rode “A Streetcar Named Desire” to his final stop and 237 US Marines were killed by a terrorist bomb in Beirut. We all remember that the Twin Towers fell on 9-11, 2001. But the World Trade Center was bombed for the first time in 1993. No one guessed that act was a preview of worse things to come. Just 10 years ago, in 2003, US forces invaded Iraq and Disney greenlighted development on a TV show called “Hannah Montana” starring a freshfaced lass named Miley Cyrus. By 2013, many people wished neither event had occurred. A new yea r ha s f i na l ly a r r ived f i l led w it h hope, excitement and, for some, dread. Just remember that how things turn out depends on you. Here’s hoping 2014 is your greatest year ever.

Recipe/Community Connection

Chunky Chicken, Vegetable and Rosemary Stew Yield: 6 servings Serving size: 1 cup • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided • 12 ounces boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces • 1 medium onion, cut in 8 wedges • 3 medium carrots, quartered lengthwise and cut into thirds • 1 medium celery stalk, cut into 1-inch pieces • 2 cups water • 2 dried bay leaves • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • 1 can (15 ounces) reducedsodium navy beans, rinsed and drained • 1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered • 1/2 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary • 3/4 teaspoon salt

In Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 3 minutes per side or until it begins to brown (center will still be slightly pink). Remove from oven and set aside. Add remaining canola oil, onion, carrot and celery. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until vegetables just begin to lightly brown on edges. Add water, bay leaves and pepper flakes. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer covered for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in chicken, beans, tomatoes, Italian parsley, rosemary and salt. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until tomatoes are tender and chicken is cooked. Serve immediately or let stew stand 30 minutes to develop flavors and texture.

this year, because we have a new record and if there was ever a time to do it, it seems like it would be now,” said Coleman. Understanding Coleman’s passion is easy when you consider his band has made two albums on no budget and plays shows frequently in Atlanta. “It’s hard to remember with something you love so passionately and have been doing so long, if you want to do it full-time and support yourself, you have to think about it as a small business,” said Elias. “You’re an entrepreneur. It’s hard to remember to wear all those hats.” The band has its sights set on eventually doing an East Coast tour, though Coleman ack nowledges even more work has to be done to get to that level, especially as they promote their new album, “Some New Air,” released in December. Colema n a lso ack nowledges the music only gets them so far; promotion, marketing and social media presence are how connections are made. “I’m not a people person and I don’t have the drive to go out and market myself,” ad m it ted Colem a n . “O u r music is our strongest asset. It’s built on the hope the

music will speak for itself.” When it comes to doing promotion, Multiplexor wriggles its way into something creative rather than the typical self-marketing. Last year, the band made a music video for a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Back to December.” The response exceeded Coleman’s expectations and reaffirmed the band’s belief in creative marketing. “I think the best thing that we can do is to keep pushing as much as we can, promoting and playing shows,” said Elias. “It really is connections and playing shows. If [recording labels] see that you’re hardworking and good, that’s your best way to get exposure.” “Hopefully a label looks at where we are and sees t h at we’ve a l ready m ade

t wo a lbu ms, w it hout a regional following,” Coleman explained. “It shows we’re not waiting to be on a label. It’s just what we do. We’re gonna do it anyway, whether there’s a label or not.” We’re going to do it anyway. That ethos is what separates Multiplexor from a lot of small-time bands who need instant gratif ication. Multiplexor is a form of therapy for Coleman — whether they are playing in his basement or to 300 people in Atlanta, he’s self-medicating. “It’s the most cathartic thing, if I’m going through something, to write it all out and structure it to make a musical statement and defeat the sadness,” Coleman said. “If I can create something and make it really good, it’s like I

Skillet Quinoa with Black Beans, Cilantro and Feta Yield: 6 servings Serving size: 1 cup • 1 tablespoon canola oil • 1 cup onions, diced • 2 cups red bell pepper, diced • 1-1/2 cups water • 3/4 cup quinoa, uncooked • 1 can (15 ounces) reduced sodium black beans, rinsed and drained • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts • 2 teaspoons chili powder • 1/3 cup crumbled, reduced-fat feta cheese* • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped • 1 medium garlic clove, minced • 1/2 teaspoon salt

In large skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper. Sauté 5 minutes or until onions begin to brown on edges, stirring occasion­ally. Add water and quinoa. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, cover and cook on medium-low for 12 minutes or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in beans, walnuts, chili powder, feta, cilantro, garlic and salt. Cover and let stand 2 min­utes to heat through and absorb flavors. *Vegetarian option: Replace feta with vegan cheese or tofu.

Powerhouse Green Smoothie Yield: 1 serving Serving size: 1, 2/3 cups • 3/4 cup seedless green grapes • 1/2 cup ripe banana slices • 1/4 cup chopped kale • 2/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil • 1/2 cup ice cubes

overcame what it was.” Musical careers are scarce in 2014, in the era where nobody pays for music anymore. It’s constantly an uphill battle, especially when emo revivalism goes against the current trends happening with electronic and dance music. But, for Multiplexor, the constant battle, in many w ay s , f uel s t h e mu sic a l expression. “It does get me down that it’s not easy to break into and there’s no guarantee we’ll ever find success or for how long, but it’s my favorite thing to do, and it’s even better when my friends love it, too, and we can work on it together,” Coleman said. “It’s just that much more of a payoff.”
