Lake of Fire Music Video Premiere: Crater

Lake of Fire Music Video Premiere: Crater

Bandcamp || Facebook || Instagram   Delving deep into experimental territory with rock and psych influences, Austin’s very own Lake of Fire have crafted an amalgam of sounds into one solid debut LP, Crater, released today on Fishbum Records. Their official video (citing the same title as their LP) was shot in Texas’ expansive landscape...
Stonefield Takeover!

Stonefield Takeover!

  It all started in a shed. More specifically, it started in a shed on a family hobby farm in a tiny rural township in Victoria, Australia. The four Findlay sisters, who’d go on to become the earthen psych-rock opal that is Stonefield, had been granted their wish of a drum kit by their parents,...

An Answer For Us All: Sweet Spirit's "The Power"

An Answer For Us All: Sweet Spirit’s “The Power”

Photography by David Brendan Hall   Amidst the saturation of bands and fledgling acts cropping up in Austin, Texas, it’s not often that a group seizes the spotlight and successfully continues to hone in on a committed and growing audience. Initially formed as a solo project, vocalist Sabrina Ellis (A Giant Dog, Glad Girls) started...
The Bolos: Today San Antonio...Tomorrow The World

The Bolos: Today San Antonio…Tomorrow The World

  Two years ago as Austin’s complacency felt saturated by the overall stagnation of rock n roll, I came across The Bolos. They were young, hungry, and most importantly not just another band jumping shark and attempting to poorly play psyche. From the very beginning they stood out as a band with grit, shaping music...
Pookie and the Poodlez - Young Adult

Pookie and the Poodlez – Young Adult

Living in Oakland there might seem to be far more bands than necessary swinging from the same complacent rock ‘n’ roll vine, for the rest of us around the world though, our thirst cannot be quenched for the talent and sound that area consistently offers up to us. Pookie and the Poodlez has remained strictly...
When the Beach Boys Say Forever, They Mean FOREVER: Still America's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band 50 Years Later

When the Beach Boys Say Forever, They Mean FOREVER: Still America’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band 50 Years Later

Words by: Merri Palmer Photographer: Ismael Quintanilla III   I thought I knew what rock ‘n’ roll was until I saw The Beach Boys. My generation grew up on Beach Boys’ surf rock, a sound so familiar and quintessential to American life that it may as well have been baseball, or apple pie, or stars...
Heavy Times' "Psychic Punk"

Heavy Times’ “Psychic Punk”

  Progress has such negative connotations, the mere idea of it being attached to some band we are stoked for makes us cringe. More often than not “progress” is a term used as a shield by those who value self-gain over integrity when justifying why the album they are now promoting sounds like a desperate...
Persistence Pays: The Rich Hands

Persistence Pays: The Rich Hands

  Finally moving out of the shadows of Black Lips and The Bad Lovers, stepping off in their own definitive direction, The Rich Hands are all grown up and killin’ it better than ever.   There is always a timidness when you play something from a band you have been geeking over for so long...

Born Bad Seeds: Gross Pointe

Born Bad Seeds: Gross Pointe

  Be it from age or simple cosmic awareness, somewhere along the path we become less a reflection of the external, our own tiny voices finding strength in some collective subconscious of US, we close our eyes in true Jordan Catalano fashion to open them with a rift unfathomable between what we have become and...

Happy Birthday, Vivienne Westwood!

Happy Birthday to the one and only queen of punk, Dame Vivienne Westwood! You know how to drape a dress, that’s for damn sure, but you also inspire us to stack our plaid, rip every t-shirt we’ve ever owned, and never underestimate the power of a solid mohawk. This punk goddess has ripped through the...

Indie Radar: Tera Melos

Indie Radar: Tera Melos

Holy Jesus, this math rock band, Tera Melos, is so god damn good.  I have difficulty starting off this article, because this band is seriously unlike anything I’ve ever heard, so I’ll probably just make up for by swearing too much, BECAUSE THEY ARE FUCKING AMAZING. FUCKING. AMAZING.  It’s also summer now, and I don’t...
Indie Radar - SKATERS

Indie Radar – SKATERS

Quite possibly the greatest thing out of the New York scene since The Strokes, SKATERS capture an addictive, garage-pop sound that fuses elements of punk and indie dreaminess into a glorious combination of sounds. These sounds cannot simply be categorized into just one genre of music. I fell in love with this band during my...

Japandroids – Celebration Rock (Review)

  So even though it’s coming sort of late seeing as the album was released last May, I felt compelled to write this review because Celebration Rock just kicks so much ass. Two years ago when the two-piece, Vancouver-born outfit released their first LP, Post Nothing, it took off. Nearly 3 years, and over 200...
