Blissful, Down-tempo Beats Fill Hovvdy's New Video For "Petals"

Local favorites, Hovvdy, are the slacker music aficionados whose music embodies Austin's soul. Gearing up for its Feburary 5th release, Cranberry, is Hovvdy's sophomore album that is being released on Double Double Whammy Records. Having described their own music as Pillowcore, Charlie and Will are choose to dive into a solipsistic dream, that shimmers with shoegaze, and simmers with Sonic Youth. "Petals" is a suburban love letter, chock full of neighborhood imagery, family bonds, and everyday beauty. The music video is a near carbon copy of every 90's MTV alternative rock video that which portrays the group jamming in their seemingly childhood home. While the over-saturation of indie music in Austin continues, Hovvdy differentiates their music by savoring the moment rather than rushing to the chorus. Pre-order, Cranberry, now available here: https://hovvdy.bandcamp.com

Wonderbitch Enters Another Reality On "Run Ya"

After two EPs, Oceansoft is Wonderbitch's first full length LP.  True to their unique sound, Oceansoft is a stylish, adventurous throwback to the clean sophistication and calculated funk of yacht rock and 80s RnB/Pop, but with modern sensibility and production in mind.  A couple new members and new influences bring new facets to the smart, the smooth, and the shiny.

"Run Ya" is the first single off the new album which is loosely based around a wild story Wonderbitch dreamed up: 

A group of rich folks out on a yacht in the 1980s hit a storm and get warped to an alternate dimension where money doesn't matter and nature is taking over civilization. A type of Waterworld/American Psycho hybrid that influences a nuanced and experimental sound.

 

Check Wonderbitch perform for their vinyl release tonight at the Mohawk.  More info can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1534300743327195

Big Bill Releases New Video For "Pharmacy"

The high falsetto warble of Big Bill's nonsensical punk is as energizing as it is entertaining. Formed in 2011 by the Braden brothers, Big Bill continues on Austin's punk legacy with local bands like the Big Boys clearly influencing their sound. The band's debut LP, Stand By Your Bill, comes out on November 17 and "Pharmacy" is one of their first singles. The video, which is directed by Andy Ray Lemon, channels elements of Asian karaoke videos and 80's era elemental video effect. Four random punker girls mime the song's lyrics in one of Big Bill's suprisingly more normal videos with a catchy but morbid lyrics togoalong with it. Big Bill is a perfect mix of humor, anti-establishmentism, musical talent, and the absurd - so support them by buying their debut LP, Stand By Your Bill, when it comes out next Friday.
