Psych Fest Preview: The Paperhead (+ New Song)
Psych Fest is going down this weekend over on the East Side of town, and I wanted to give you a few bands I think you should check out. The first band I’ve got for you is Nashville’s The Paperhead. After releasing a wonderful self-titled record last year, they’ve got a new 7″ on Trouble in Mind Records this year; this new jam displays their blossoming maturity in regards to their songwriting. You will find that it’s a lot less psychedelic than the last effort, almost coming off as the second coming of the Kinks or the Beatles (neither of which is a bad thing). There’s still hints of darkness in the sound, but the writing’s lacks some of the frills. Regardless, this a band that many have taken notice of in the last couple of years, and you should add your name to the list.
You can catch their set at 3:15 at Emo’s East on Saturday! And here’s one of their new tracks off that aforementioned 7″.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/The-Paperhead-She-Is-Above-Me.mp3]
