If you are nostalgic for college basement rock than Tilly Loom has got you covered. With the release a new LP Sighs Lord Cromus this past week, you’ve got nine tracks to let the memories flow. Shy lo-fi lyrics over the indie pop cadence of happy guitars and the occasional tambourine. “Cicadas” nails the spirit of Tilly Loom. A little unsureness mixed with the poise of a musician doing what he loves to do. Think Real Estate mixed with Ariel Pink, and that’s a good combination. -Allison Mayoral

Not many Austinites are familiar with Hispanic women musicians, unless it’s Selena or Ana Tijoux. However, Gina Chavez is one of those rare gems, with a Texas twang. “Miles De Millas” on Chavez’s sophomore album, Up.Rooted, brings in the Tejano-style beat accompanied by a dark, flamenco sound as she belts out English and Spanish lyrics in her polished, sweet-and-sour voice. Regardless of the obvious Latino influences, she still sticks to her southern roots in tracks like “Save Me” and “Maize” with rustic guitar strums. -Halie Davis

Hotel Vegas is a venue that welcomes local bands with open arms. The Bad Lovers will help them kickoff their second anniversary weekend. The Bad Lovers’ surf-garage rock sound is the perfect soundtrack for a Halloween Friday.  Like their name suggests they have a simple yet occasionally sloppy rock and roll sound. Nothing earthshaking but who really likes that anyways. There is nothing bad about taking it nice and easy. Released last October, their LP, Wild Times, does just that. The 15-song album is laid-back rock and roll listen that would pair well with any party. Grab a drink and check them out at Hotel Hot Burrito’s two-year anniversary weekend kickoff show at Hotel Vegas this Friday, Oct. 31

Garage rock should feel effortless. Guitar, drums and bass…that’s all you need. Ben Maddox, Wes Turner and Johnny Krueger of Hundred Visions get that simplicity is key. Their new track, “You’re Gonna Cut Me Loose,” has the indie-psych rock elements down. The scruffy guitars, distorted vocals and punk rock drum beat are enough to get you amped for their sophomore release. Thier new LP “SPITE” is out Oct. 28 via Pau Wau Records. Check them out this Saturday at Hotel Vegas. -Allison Mayoral

 Recently, the Scoot Inn threw a going away party for the true-to-heart indie folk band, Wild Child, as they departed for their European tour. Various stringed instruments - including the violin and cello - surround the sweet and sour vocals of Alexander Beggins and Kelsey Wilson. The dainty keys, perfectly toned bass and drum beats, when needed, balance the rest of the band. This six-piece band plays in true harmony to the beat of the music world. Wild Child has been recording their newest LP, The Runaround – which was just released on October 20th-Halie Davis

A classic sounding punk band has risen from the 21st century, and they are know as Crooked Bangs. The trio's sound is ripe with heavy bass and catchy surf-goth riffs you could hear in a Quentin Tarantino film. The rhythm of the fast-paced band originates from drummer, Phil Gonzalez’s hi-hat clashes and kick drum punches as guitarist, Samantha Wendel follows along. The cherry on top is vocalist, Leda Celeste Ginestra’s pitch mirroring Glen Danzig’s deep, melodies – with French lyrics.  Crooked Bangs will be playing with another female-fronted band, Screaming Females, at Red 7 on October 23.-Halie Davis
