EFG bring their psych rock to The Echo on 5.5

Psychedelic rockers EFG boldly embrace a heavily-textured array of driving, over-amped guitars that brings back a certain bravado to the genre. It serves to mention that all of its members are veterans in this kind of setting, as Imaad Wasif (lowercase, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Josh Garza (Secret Machines) and Tom Biller (Liars, Warpaint) all have a steady track record within the modern noise/experimental persuasion. Their most recent single, Outlier”, seamlessly merges reverbed guitars and pounding drums with a strong sense of pop melody that falls somewhere between classic Detroit rock and cosmic krautrock.

The band is opening for Swedish psych-rock institution Dungen at the Echo tomorrow, May 5th. The “Outlier" 7’’ is currently available for purchase via bodankuma.com. - Juan Rodríguez

New Youth Debuts with Perfect Spring Romance Single "Soft Eyes"

Looks like there's a new voice on the Austin synthpop scene, and boy is it a dreamy one. Solo artist New Youth, also known as Silas Acosta, has released his first single "Soft Eyes" this month, and it is a beautiful bit of lazy-day summer pop. Acosta is obviously a big fan of 80s pop, especially of the British synths and jangle guitars variety, and he layers airy elements of that lovely era on one another and over his breathy voice in the track in a way that speaks perfectly to the easy, carefree romance that the song's title calls to mind.

It's a song that will immediately appeal to the fan of 80s indie pop, as it will to anyone with a taste for the dreamy, and it's a very nice debut for this young artist. We're looking forward to seeing what else New Youth will bring to the table, hopefully soon, but until then, get a listen below to the song that well might be the soundtrack for a whole lot of Austin spring lovers this year.





New Track: "The Dead Are Dumb" - Nothing

May 13, the release date for Tired of Tomorrow (Relapse Records) is rapidly approaching. And while we wait for it to drop, Nothing has issued another single, “The Dead Are Dumb,” which you may recognized from the second episode of Nothing's documentary. The song stews in a reserved, reflective, somber state, slowly sinking into the senses. The band’s hometown record release show will be held at Union Transfer on Friday, July 8 with additional support from Citizen and Culture Abuse, as well as Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler.
