Rusty Dusty Brings Psychedelic Reassurement

 

Hailing from the depths of central Texas, Rusty Dusty brings to the table the familiar qualities of psychedelic rock but harmoniously paired with southern rock. With this particular sound that can't be mimicked, Rusty Dusty lets you drop out and take a step back to see where life has taken you and where you can go from here.
 
From your first listen to the album The No Good Serpentine Funtime Mosaic Experience, you find yourself diving into a headspace full of imagination and hope. There are a number of clear influences such as the likes of Dr. Dog and The Black Crowes. But, it would be wrong to simply say that they don’t hold their own. Rusty Dusty’s music has an individuality of its own. They present a different look at the way we approach music and the real benefit that comes from understanding the artist. It has a quality, a feeling as if you were being written about from their own perspective. 
 
Full of love and wonder, Rusty Dusty leaves us thinking about more than music. They have created a sound that remains true to the concepts of friendship, true love, heartbreak, and heartache. Feeling uplifted and joyful about the future, it allows us to take something more than a listener’s enjoyment from this band. With their opening track “Strange Strange Strange,” you can find yourself drifting into space to contemplate what you desire. Rusty Dusty not only connects to you, but welcomes you into their psychedelic world. If there were one simple message to be made out of their lyrics, it would be to never give up–keep pursuing everything and anything you love, no matter what life throws back at you. 
 
Even more, there's something that comes out of the dissonant guitar and thought-provoking lyrics. Rusty Dusty reminds us that though the answers may be in front of you, there is a subtlety of pain that must exist alongside it. Sadness is a mere reflection in the music. They've reached a certain level of life experience that brings light to understanding that it's not about the path you take, but the way you get there.
 
Overall, what might seem simple at surface layer for Rusty Dusty is actually more deeply entrenched in meaning. The atmosphere they create is a world you’d want to travel to. Their lyrics create a bridge where the artist and the listener can meet to have a mutual experience.

Indigo Bunting Conjures Upbeat Euphoria on "White Noise"

  In the city of eclectic talent, Austin Texas, Indigo Bunting is an art-pop trio that stands out to the crowd. They have a unique sound with calming vocals and upbeat instrumental, that fills your soul with euphoria and bliss. Giving us another dose of their music, the trio recently just dropped a new single.

“White Noise(Don’t be a Winner)”; giving off 60’s vibes and harmonic voices with new and modern sound effects. Perfect for soothing car rides no matter where one is at, or going. As if listeners could not get enough there is a side B to the new single with the same dreamy attitude.

“I don’t Mind”; will leave one happy and sad all at once. The lyrics are beautifully articulated and connected. Cannot help but notice how the vocals and instrumental counteract each other so well. These two tracks go along with Indigo Bunting’s new and upcoming album.

Be ready for the trio’s album coming out later this fall, as it will be just as interesting and enjoyable as “White Noise(Don’t be a Winner)/ I don’t Mind”. Lifting spirits with their old but new, experimental sounds. Even though the summer has come to an end, extend it with the sun soaked music brought to you by Indigo Bunting.

Foxtales Impresses with single "Save ya"

Foxtales released a new single “Save Ya” this past Friday. Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jonathan Fox, wrote the song while he was making sense of a broken heart. Given that Fox is naturally drawn towards a more upbeat style, “Save Ya” is full of glossy pop melodies interwoven with heavier lyrics dealing with the guilt and grief that comes after a difficult breakup.

The song captures how difficult it can be to process the end of a relationship. When discussing his creative process in writing “Save Ya,” Fox explained “The more I recognized the creative walls I'd put up, and looked to move past them, the less obstructed the story itself seemed to be in getting out. And then it started flowing out." The lyrics have a natural progression as they follow the song’s narrative, and the simple but impactful rhyme scheme flows easily alongside the beat.

The sadder lyrics don’t weigh down the songs uplifting soundscape. Fox bandages his heartbreak with layers of synth and dance music. It’s encouraging to listen to. Fox especially shines on the indie-pop inspired backdrop. The fast-paced layering of electropop loops and subtle bass drops make you want to dance. It’s the sort of song that’s gratifying to listen to when you need a pick-me-up.
