WOW! The new LP SUNBATHER from the 2-piece hardcore/post-rock band DEAFHEAVEN is incredible! The album is full of intense transitions! It will be heavy in-your-face metal, and then switch gears to a melodic soft soundscape. This album is pure artistic freedom! I love it! You have to listen to the entire album to get the full experience!

Check out their work here:

The Dig

Dig this. The Dig is an incredible band that everyone will be listening to really soon! This new EP Tired Hearts is pretty damn amazing! It follows their stellar 2012 Midnight Flowers album, and takes the band to another level! The shoegaze/pop sounds really come forward in this new EP, and complement the previous albums!  I was able to see this guys last year here in Austin, and I can't wait for them to come back!

Here is the title track off the new EP :

RITTZ!!!!! The Life and Time of Jonny Valiant

This cat straight raps!!!!

I'm from the South so I love Southern hip hop/rap  this is some of trillest stuff I've heard in a loooooooooong time. RITTZ's  debut is Doooooope I really don't know what  else to say.....I had to pause a couple songs like DAMN!!! Just go listen to it now please and thank you.


P.S. He's not from BK!!!

Atoms for Peace

WOW! I don't know how I missed this release! I must have been hit over the head with a blunt object!
This dream supergroup consisting of  Thom Yorke/Nigel Godrich/Flea/Joey Waronker/Mauro Refosco is mind blowing! I saw them live at Coachella 2010 listed under the name Thom Yorke, and didn't even realize what I witnessed! I really don't know when they changed their band name from ???????/Thom Yorke?????/Thom Yorke to Atoms for Peace, but I'm super stoked to see them again! The debut album AMOK is a beautiful composition of sound! Go give it a listen on Spotify or just buy the album because it's pretty damn good! Also, check out some of their live performances! Live performances the band really shines beyond the average band!  SUPER FUN afro/experimental/electronica/jam band!

Click this link to see them perform live!

Night Moves

I've wanted to post about this band for a while! I was just told they are coming to Austin, TX on July 19th! Thought I'd make a quick post about this kick ass band!

The sound of their album COLORED EMOTIONS is an incredible sensory overload!The album is full of psych-pop goodness!  This band is too good to pass up, and will be on my music radar for years to come!

Check out their album Colored Emotions here:  NIGHT MOVES-COLORED EMOTIONS

Royal Bangs

WOW! I stumbled across Royal Bangs (Knoxville, Tennessee)  on a random YouTube frenzy. I'm very surprised that I haven't heard d this band sooner! They have a crazy indie/experimental/rock sound that I just love! Its STUPID GOOD! :P  The use of synths and guitar fuzz blend together into a super fun mixture! I'm kicking myself for not seeing them during SXSW.  I have a strong feeling these guys will be back in Austin, and selling out  local venues soon. Their sound is an onslaught of sound that is to badass to be ignored! Keep an ear out for this talented group! 

Check out their music here :

The track Bad News, Strange Luck really demonstrates the versatility of Royal Bangs.

Pissed Jeans

I know these guys have been around for a while, but damn! I just now discovered Pissed Jeans right before SXSW 2013! These hardcore fucks from the the east , and are fueling the flame for hardcore/punk! They are the band that I needed in my life for sometime now! Their lyrics are just funny, intelligent and compliment the explosive sounds from full band!  They are for sure one of the front runners of the modern hardcore scene! I hope they will be around for years to come!  GO BUY THEIR ALBUMS!

Their video for False Jesii Part 2 is just fucking funny and amazing! The lyrics to this song just kick so much ass!

Also, buy their latest Honeys from the SUB POP records website ! You will not be disappointed if you are a fan of hardcore!

Please buy their album because I want these guys to be around for a while!

The Skins!!!

Yo What Up!!!!!

So I recently found out about a band called The Skins !!!! They were here in the fine city of Austin for SXSW this year and before that touring Europe. The band is made up of a  trio of siblings and two sounds like Black Sabbath with Zepplin guitar solos and a dash of funk. Can't wait to see what these guys do next. Oh! they also hail from the fine borough of  Brooklyn.


Wild Pack Of Canaries

Wild Pack Of Canaries is an obscure psy/prog/pop group from the land of Long Beach. They have such a stupid good sound :)! They have everything from melodic math-rock influenced guitar, to horns, and synthesizer. I can hear the De Facto/Mars Volta/Hella-ish  influences in their tracks! Also sprinkles of Beatles and Bowie over the entire album " In the Parian Flesh." They're full of creativity and paint awesome pictures with their sound. I'll be keeping up with this guys!

You can listen to their album In the Parian Flesh here :

ICEAGE - Your Nothing LP
A danish hardcore punk band that is tearing down the happy love

In a music market of over-saturated happy folk/pop tunes (which I love BTW) it's great to hear something raw and hardcore! I stumbled across Iceage randomly on Spotify a few days ago and they blew me away.Their music is like a sledgehammer to the face!

The first track on the LP is  ECSTASY and it's incredible! It feels liek a throw back to all the hardcore punk from the late 70s/early 80's. This track sets the stage for the onslaught of incredible tracks to follow! PLEASE GIVE THESE GUYS A LISTEN! I can't wait for them to come back to ATX!
Here is a link so you can purchase some swag and help them get back to AUSTIN!!!

Stupid Fruity Swag!!!!!!!

Like most of the music out of BK,Flatbush Zombies offer a little bit of everything, hip hop-wise anyways. Just LISTEN to it, it's DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You should be able to find it here

Dana Falconberry

Last nights Dana Falconberry show was stellar!  Her folk/pop tunes feels like a cross country road trip or walk through a forest. The vocal harmonies remind me of sweet song birds, and come together in a powerful way. :)

Please check out her tunes here: www.danafalconberry.

SXSW-Auditorium Shores

SXSW is a festival that's bigger than Christmas for me! I look forward to it every year, and count down the days until it's arrival! One main reason I love the festival is the amount of free gifts artist give. :) By gifts I mean FREE music for the public! I just want to give a huge THANK YOU to SXSW for providing Austin with great music. !

I just got a little excited with this announcement this morning!
Flaming Lips, Jim James, and Divine Fits  will be headlining the free shows at Auditorium Shores!

Foxygen – We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace & Magic
Figured my first post will be about a band I stumbled across on Spotify a few weeks ago! They are an amazing group from the SF Bay Area. They are a great experimental/classic rock/pop group that screams Rolling Stone's, and David Bowie. I highly recommend you give these guys a listen!!1

This is a blog for me and my friends to share our thoughts on the latest music we find.
