Street Sects Previews Sophomore Release With "Still Between Lovers"

 Street Sects combine electronic samples with a gail-force catharsis of frustration and pain that leaves listeners entranced. Vocalist, Leo Ashline, and instrumentalist, Shaun Ringsmuth, have been playing together since 2013 but maintain a unique and individualist approach to creating a post-industrial catalogue. Deft mixing that combines frenetic sampling with melodic breakdowns, would give Reznor a raised eyebrow. Street Sects have tantalized fans with the release of their first single, "Still Between Lovers" before they drop their sophomore album, The Kicking Mule, on October 26. The duo will be going on a comprehensive American tour beginning in late October.  Pre-order the album here.


Much 2 Much brings angelic indie-folk to Mohawk 09.12

Watch out, Austin - Much 2 Much is coming out to play. Originally born as a duo, Erin Thelen and Angie Holliday formed the band in 2015 during a trip to Asia, and has since taken Austin by storm as a four-piece. Their music is soulful and ethereal, full of evocative, intricate harmonies and fluid songwriting that hearkens to R&B, folk and jazz. The full band's musicianship is a force to be reckoned with, and they're guaranteed to move you. Don't miss Much 2 Much at Mohawk on September 12th, with support from Pauline and The Seventh Circuit.

Culture Wars invokes futuristic wild-west themes in new video, "Bones"

The electro-pop trio of Culture Wars has released a new music video, "Bones." Although the band's based out of Austin, the video was shot in Los Angeles. Directed by Phillip Lopez (Kygo, Cold War Kids), the video for "Bones" is vaguely post-apocalyptic, with much of it set in and around an abandoned bowling alley. The characters alternatingly wear gas masks, futuristic-looking helmets and cowboy attire (yes, sawed-off shotguns and pistols included). The video is several homages blended into one - "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Westworld" come to mind - and it effectively syncs up well with the doom-laced, electro-pop feel of the song itself. Check out the video for "Bones" below! - Ethan Ames



Beth // James Appear on Blackkklansman With "Lion Eyes"

There are so many music artists in Austin that tirelessly plod away at expanding their audience, and some never catch a break. It might be cliche, but defining 'luck' as when preparation meets opportunity, actually seems to prove itself over and over again. Long-time Austin electronic band, SURVIVE, found success with the Stranger Things soundtrack and countless other bands have found success through national TV spots. Local indie folk duo, Beth // James, got their thunderbolt through an open submission to Spike Lee for his new movie, Blackkklansman. Their song "Lion Eyes" was picked up and thrust into one of the best movies of the year, and also one of the best soundtracks. Mikaela Beth Kahn and Jordan James Burchill pick up where the band the Civil Wars left off and do a good job injecting an indie pop sensibility into their folk exoskeleton. The duo have their debut EP, New In Life, currently available and just released a single called "Wasted on Sundays".
