STREAM Mobilities' 'Time Hasn't Swallow Us Yet,' Out Now

If you couldn't already tell by their name, Mobilities is a band about free movement; fluidity in their instrumentation, production and genre influences is part of what makes Mobilities such an enjoyable and dynamic group. Their self-titled EP was one of the first tastes of their particular flavor they shared with the world, but their debut full-length Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet goes even further to showcase their spirited musicianship.

Most of the songs on Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet were written by lead vocalist/guitarist Eric McCauley and bassist/vox Brett Sparrey (though each member had a hand in writing their own parts) and recorded over about a five month span at Toadhouse Studios. Musically, you can hear the influence bands like Queens of the Stone Age, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and local phenoms Portugal. The Man have had on them, blurring lines between what's considered alternative, experimental rock, indie, garage and punk. But, Mobiliities takes their songs in their own direction lyrically and sonically. The album is thematically based on social issues, touching on political and philosophical issues as well. It's a journey from start to finish, and one that is worth taking with the band.

Catch Mobilities, along with Eugene's Childspeak and The Von Howlers, for the Time Hasn't Swallowed Us Yet album release show 2.24 at Kelly's Olympian. Dive into the album in its entirety below. You won't be disappointed.





Alt-rock trio FOXTRAX plays SXSW on 3/12 and 3/14

 FOXTRAX is waking up the alt rock scene with their tight, nuanced arrangements and excellent songwriting chops. The trio embraces their music's dark undertones but isn't afraid to make light of a rainy day- or in this case, a "Grey Morning." Churning out consistently excellent vocal performances, guitar lines and all around vibes, this band is one of the most solid and compelling that I've heard for a while in the alt-rock genre. Be sure to check them out when FOXTRAX heads to SXSW, playing showcases at the Convention Center on 3/12 and Javelina on 3/14. -Geena Kloeppel

New Track: "Devoted" - Exmaid

Miranda Taylor (Black Wine, Full of Fancy, Hunchback) unites with the trio of Psychic Teens to form Exmaid. On April 6, the quartet will release its debut LP Fair Sex via SRA Records and Don Giovanni. With its lead single, “Devoted,” Taylor sings of switching gears, as an enthusiastic, battering-ram riff clears an opening of possibility; it's bright with a brutal edge. And on Saturday, April 21, Long In the Tooth will be hosting the band’s record release show with Dialer.
