Seeing as Psych Fest is going to be taking over Austin this weekend it seems only fitting thta we rep one of the many great Austin bands: The Ripe. This week the group just released their album, Into Your Ears, on Get Hip Records, and we’ve had a lot of fun spinning it for ourselves over here at ATH. Just one look at the album’s cover and you might think these guys play on the darker side of the Psych realm, but you’d be asboslutely wrong. There’s a light-hearted garage feel to what they’re working on, and fans of both modern indie rock and classic tunes will enjoy themselves. These dudes have gotten some great press from all over the world, so it’s about time people in Austin pay attention, and that means you!
The Ripe will take over the stages at Psych Fest on Sunday, April 28th at Emos at 4:00 PM. See you there!
Here’s an MP3, plus you can sample the band’s whole album right HERE.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/drawning-sound-june-2011.mp3]
