Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Lowin, Riders Against The Storm @ Float Fest 2016

Seems like I am always trying to catch up on all the cool and awesome music that keeps on rolling in.  So here is one of couple of blitz posts that should bring us back up to speed.

Lowin –  members Sara Houser, Chris DeGeorge, Michael David Sanders and Nathan Ribner put on a great show. This band’s sound is tight, energetic and compliments Sara Houser’s magnificent vocals. I would love to catch Lowin on a smaller venue but watching them at Float Fest was a ton of fun. Super happy I got to see them!

Riders Against The Storm – What can I say about this group but that they are fucking great! Wow! Energetic, awesome musicianship that connects with the audience. I had a chance to hang out with Qi Dada(vocals) for a couple of minutes before she took the stage, she is a super cool lady with a ton of talent, what am I saying they are all talented!

I recommend watching out for any of these groups and you won’t be disappointed.

San Antonio, TX – Jared Putnam, the main man behind the The March Divide, will launch a string of fall tour dates in Austin, Texas on Friday, November 4th, the same day he releases the five-song “Bribing Jace,” which represents the prolific songwriter’s fourth EP, in addition three full-length releases, in just over three years.

Saturdays, the most recent album by The March Divide album, arrived in May, 2016.  The upcoming run of dates will take Putnam throughout Texas (including shows with Texas Is The Reason’s, Garrett Klahn) and out west to California.

“There’s an untapped type of pop music that I’ve been on a quest to make,” Putnam says, explaining the sound of “Bribing Jace,” and going on to further describe it as, “not redefined, just redesigned.” Putnamcontinues, saying, “While I’ve never really been willing to sacrifice a song to an experiment, I went as close to all-in as I could this time. Chasing this white whale was a lot of fun!”

“Bribing Jace” contains three songs recorded during the Saturdayssessions that Putnam loved, but felt didn’t quite fit the feel of the album, and two brand-new tracks, including the single, “I Might.”

‘I Might’ is a very different song for me,” Putnam says. “When I initially came up with the riff, I had several changes that worked, but for whatever reason, just playing that one riff over and over was the thing that felt right.” Listen to “I Might” from “Bribing Jace” via Austin Town Hall now.

“Bribing Jace,” the latest EP from The March Divide arrives on Nov. 4th, 2016. It is available for pre-order here. Saturdays, the latest album from The March Divide is out now. Jared Putnam is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.

The Sour Notes, Hidden Ritual, and Kay Odyssey @ Hotel Vegas

July 29th, 2016 was a night for psychedelic lights, betrayed romance and drowning sound waves.



It’s been a couple of years since I have seen The Sour Notes. The last time was at a 2014 or 15 SXSW show. Festivals all seem to blend together after a while, with too many bands and not enough memory. It was cool to catch them at Hotel Vegas and like always, their performance was captivating. This band needs to be included in your repertoire of live bands.

One of my personal favorites, Hidden Ritual, never ceases to amaze me. The first time I heard of Hidden Ritual was off of a compilation on Bandcamp called Lo-Fi Compilation 2 from Valencia, Spain. I must have played that track for 3 days straight! Without knowing that they were from Austin, I met Jaime, and Ryan of Hidden Ritual at a backyard hangout at my friend Oliver’s (Horse Plus Donkey) house.  Hidden Ritual’s psych rock totally bridges gaps to the experimental side of music.

Kay Odyssey is like a mix of post punk aggression mixed with a touch of broken hearted fuck you’s. Kristina Boswell’s performance is mesmerizing along with the driving rhythms of Kelsey Wickliffe (bass) and Vajaja Valejo (drums) driving the heavy emotions. It is always cool to catch the one and only Liz Burrito on guitar, that girl just spills out toughness.
