KNIFIGHT is a strange beast. Influences of 80s synth are potent but they maintain a modern indie rock backbeat. Think Depeche Mode mixed with a  strange Modest Mouse dance vibe. Hipster dance party for sure. The five piece band - Patrick Marshall, John Hetherington, John Gable, Nick Cogdill and Nick Garrison - know how to keep the 80s vibes alive. This past year they released, "Now We're Invisible Revisited," a remake of their 2010 debut EP. KNIFIGHT plays Holy Mountain this Friday Dec. 12 where a portion of the proceeds benefit local Austin charities. So go get your synth on…it’s for a good cause.

It’s something about the end of the year months that make you desire nostalgia. Maybe it’s the holiday/family overload or just the fact that another year has drifted pass so quickly. Slomo Drags should be on your soundtrack for nights of red wine and memories. A mix of Big Star and Spoon, their Slomo Drags EP released this past March is indie pop perfect for any decade. Comprised of Jackson Albracht, Raul Alvarez, Adam Mason and Marcus Rubio they know how to package reverb, jangle pop and melancholy vocals into a delightful punch. They play tonight at Red 7 or catch them Dec. 6 at Holy Mountain.

It’s been cold in Austin. Like the blast of frigid temps in your face make you almost miss the hot humid summer of 2014. Get your summer day vibes via the crisp indie rock of Comforter. These four guys - Ryan Curtis, Hunter Thompson, BJ Thomas and Russell Cole - know how to make you yearn for the days of 8 p.m. sunsets and cold beer. They are hosting their tape release show this Thursday at Holy Mountain. Dust off your Walkman and warm up with Comforter. -Allison Mayoral

Danny Malone is a young singer/songwriter who is ready for his next phase. His new release SpeedDreamer sounds like it will be a low key compilation than previous endeavors of lighthearted folk-rock. A lullaby rather than a get out of bed and start the day kinda vibe that shined on his album Balloons. Where you rather just chill with headphones and a zone out to Malone’s hazy vocals. Yes, you need a soundtrack to zone out and I presume this album will be a top contender. SpeedDreamer will be released next Tuesday Nov. 18. Check out Malone's album release show at Cheer Up Charlies this Friday Nov. 14.
