Black Pistol Fire splits their time between Toronto and Austin, bringing their jamming cross between southern blues and garage rock both north and south.  There's no doubt that these guys could probably be mistaken for The Black Keys; singer Kevin McKeown's vocals sound like an uncanny mix between Jack White and Dan Aurbach, but there's something to be said about the two person band that really brings it.  Anyways, this genre of music is too enjoyable not to shrug off their similarities to any other band.  Besides, they're doing the blues right so what more can a music lover ask for?  BPF takes us back, and reminds us that every rock band we hear today came from blues in some shape or form, and thank god there are those who continue to carry out the tradition. -Jake Saunders

Austin's punk rockers, Carl Sagan's Skate Shoes, describe themselves as "two dudes who play loud". Right they are; their new EP, Demoage, is just four songs; it's heavy-handed and ear-pummeling. For an all-out punk-thrashing moment for grown-ups, listen to "Hot Shoes". While hardcore at heart, "Under the Continental Divide" is the most melodic, and thoughtful of the songs. With only four songs to prove themselves at the heart of the Austin punk scene, Carl Sagan's Skate Shoes demonstrates a diverse showcase of sounds to add to the genre, as well as some traditional punk fun. -Sammie Spector

 Caroline Says recently put forth 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong, a new album where the only mystery lies in the title. That doesn't mean that the album is not subtle. It is perfect for the coming Autumn atmosphere, especially "Winter Is Cold", emanating the desire to curl up with a book and cup of tea, watching the world from the comfort of your seat. "My Fiance's Pets" and the mildly upbeat "Ghost Pokes" share this intimacy and effervescent quality. That is the warmth and homespun quality felt from the album, making listening an enchantingly subdued and peaceful moment in time.

Mother Falcon's presence is creative, it's assertive and it's tight.  They're an orchestral indie band with enough technique for them to have their own band camp for kids, where kids can learn about writing songs, orchestrating bands and practicing their instruments; sounds like a sweet alternative to School of Rock.  Their sound is incredibly rich, combining rock n roll energies with orchestral instruments and structures.  Particularly worth listening to is their live album of their performance of Radiohead's, OK Computer, in it's entirety which they appropriately titled MF Computer.  It's a successful re-imagination; the closing of Paranoid Android in particular gave me goose pimples.  You can catch Mother Falcon live on August 27th at the long Center Concert Club and then again on the 30th at The Mohawk.  Don't miss it.  -Jake Saunders

Otis the Destroyer are packing serious punches with the psych rock sound that they've managed to masterfully wield on their latest EP, Dark Arts, which was out this past May. It's four songs of wonderfully crafted psychadelic jams. Their recent video for their track "You're The Wealth" tells a story of a guy whose world becomes a trippy, surreal reality as soon as he puts on a pair of 3-D glasses. The video is an excellent depiction of their style, as the band takes after 1960's and 70's rock with incredible taste.  Check them out tonight at Hole In The Wall.  -Jake Saunders
