A2W: Yellow Fever
At the end of the year, we had a hard time keeping our heads above water, trying to grasp our end of the year lists and what not. In doing so, we missed the chance to alert you to the duo that is Yellow Fever. Sure, they’ve been running around Austin for several years, but recently, they’ve seen their star rising in their musical horoscope. Vivian Girls opted to release the groups self-titled debut album on their label Wild World. It’s an album full of simple ditty’s a la early K Records groups such as the Beat Happening, but instead of Calvin as the front man, you have the wonderful Jennifer Moore. It’s got enough hooks to grab the casual listener, and enough depth to instill true adoration from Austin fans. You’ll want to keep an eye on this group in 2010, especially on February 19th when they take the stage with Chain and the Gang and The Strange Boys. Sounds like a line-up of classic indie rock, and by that, I mean the stuff pre-Pitchfork. Do yourself a favor and head on out to grab a copy of Yellow Fever so you’ll know all the songs in time for the show.
