Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the Austin music scene, you are familiar with Orville Bateman’s musical project known as OBN III’s.  He is of course involved in tons of other bands in town, but this one is a personal favorite of mine.  Today we’ve gotten news that the group has recently finished a new album and is spreading the word with this great new track called “No Time For the Blues”.  It’s of course in the punk rock genre, and I’m down for that.  You can also hear some hints of another famous front man by the name of King Khan in there too, and I can’t see how anyone wouldn’t be down for that as well.

Pick up new album, Third Time to Harm, on May 27th via Tic Tac Totally Records.

Austin Spotlight: Tele Novella Release New 7″

teleIf you’ve been watching these pages you’ve surely noticed our coverage for Tele Novella before, and we’re right back at it to celebrate their newest 7″.  The band offers up a more sultry vocal here, with a bit of a gentle vocal caress backing the main part.  It’s like a polished cut off your favorite B-movie, once again illustrating the group’s ability to wrap their own personal tastes within a pop-centric gem.  The band returns to Austin on April 5th to Cheer Up Charlies in order to celebrate the release of Trouble in Paradise.  We’ll see you there.

Austin Spotlight: Another Ghetto Ghouls Jam

ggThe last month or so has seen a slew of excellent Ghetto Ghouls tracks come our way, and I’ll happily keep harping on about the Austin four-piece.  This track will be featured on the group’s self-titled album, being released by Monofonuss Press on April 8th.  It’s a quick jaunt, but a reminder of the pleasant abrasiveness offered up by the band.  There’s a sharpness to the musicianship, yet a rough quality that embodies the live aspect of the group.  Get yourself another taste of one of our cities great exports, and catch them at one of their 5 SXSW shows.

ATH Interview: Andrew Stevens

Andrew Stephens BannerOver the last year or so, I’ve had several conversations with people in town about the community aspect of the Austin music landscape.  I realize, of course, this isn’t always the most important question to ask, but it’s still a great conversation to have, especially when one considers the varying opinions.  I caught up with the hard-working Andrew Stevens while he was out on tour with Jess Williamson (just one of his many projects, as you’ll see below). Read on for Andrew’s insightful comments about the way he sees things working in Austin.  Read More
