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

Another two-piece pop punk-esque band. Wait, are there really several two-piece pop punky bands - no. MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR somehow manages to not only record but play a tight set. Upbeat hooks are paired with semi-disturbing lyrics of scream queens, surviving life and overall rowdiness. Front man, Adrian Sebastian exercises every part of the stage, with an occasional stumble into Andrew Torrey’s drum set, always having the crowd moving and thinking. If you feel like dressing up and getting down, you can catch their set for RawPaw’s Rawlloween show on October 31st at Cheer Up Charlie’s. -Halie Davis

Rob Kelly and Maggie Foy are singer-songwriters originally from the East Coast. They made the Texas move and now call Austin their home. They have put their acoustic folk talents together and formed Man Called War.  Influences of Americana and vulnerable indie rock are abundant. Their description on their Facebook says it all, “We think our music sounds like if The National and Damien Rice's lovechild was backed by the Lumineers.” You can be the judge of that. Check out their three-song demo “The Eastern Seaboard Demo” via their bandcamp page. -Allison Mayoral

Sometimes you just need feel good music to take you away from the realities of the world. Songs that will make you bounce up and down and let out the occasional “woo.” La Migra is a recommended listen when you wanna shove your troubles to the side and focus on rocking.  “Feels Like Summer” is a surf-punk gem that you want to last longer...just like summer. The under three minute romp sets up the energy of the band – carefree happy dudes – and that’s always a combination for a good time. -Allison Mayoral
