Basketball Shorts was born out of a passion for rocking hard and drinking lots of Lone Star.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call the makings of a true Austin party band.
Basketball Shorts come alive on stage with head-banging anthems designed for having a sweaty ball. Inspired by everything from hard partying to pizza to Forrest Gump, the trio’s songs are peppered with quips, adding to those good time party vibes.
A band that doesn’t take themselves too seriously? That’s a band you can really get down with.

If you love rocking hard and Lone Star, then check out Basketball Shorts’ saccharine new single “Candy Boys” via Austin label, Fleeting Youth Records. - Gillian Driscoll

 Twin Vision sounds like a modest blend of The Strokes and The White Stripes. Being that Twin Vision was only formed last year, we speculate whether the band has something new to incorporate into the ever transforming sound of garage rock. Labeled as "manic-psych," this band is definitely one to keep an eye on as they evolve their aesthetic. After listening to their two albums on band camp, the diversity in style is already evident.  Their first release in particular, Three Songs to Tickle Your Fantasy, but also their recent release called, Ice Cream, a nonstop powerhouse of anthemic blues to grunge rock songs. Catch their raucous show on July 23rd at Holy Mountain featuring Black Pussy and stream Ice Cream below. -Rebecca Blandon

Risa Elledge and William Wong are Tocca, a genre-defying project unafraid of sharing premature works; unmastered and raw, their songs promise much potential. Elledge's vocals are undoubtedly enticing and easy on the ears. Accompanied by bright and uplifting guitar riffs on "What You Need to Get By", her slight husk and powerful emotional projections seem effortless. Each track is completely different from the next, and yet flows seamlessly due to Elledge's consistently distinct and breathy vocals. Stream "What You Need To Get By" below. -Rebecca Glandon

I Am The Albatross' most recent and self-titled album is quite a successful interpretation of gypsey/blues rock; a sound that describes the south well, paying homage with a tasteful reimagination.  The songs all contain a surly and hung-over haze, personified perfectly in "Strugglin": "Well, it's whiskey in the morning/Gin and tonic at noon/Pulling down the blinds in a motel room."  for a preview of what could only be a vivacious performance hit up the Empire Control Room & Garage tomorrow.  Stream the album below. -Rebecca Blandon
