It’s crazy that Sub Pop just released this track by their newest signee, King Tuff, because I just bought the 3 7″ singles collection from Suicide Squeeze yesterday afternoon. KT used to jam with Happy Birthday, and he’s been banging around on his own for a long time as well. The label will be releasing his self-titled debut on May 29th of this year, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to have a lot of fun jamming out to this. Garage rock with hooks galore, just like the track we’ve got featured for you below!

Okay, you have to go to this. First, The Hex Dispensers are one of the great bands in Austin, and I think they’ve been vastly overlooked. It’s cool, you totally have the chance to make up for it. Then, you can also catch opening act King Tuff, who’s been around for a bit kicking out the garage-y jams. He recently put out a record with some friends as Happy Birthday, so if you remember that, you remember it being pretty solid. And, you want the icing on your cupcake? It’s absolutely FREE, all you have to do is RSVP. So, to recap, you get awesome tunes, and you don’t have to free. No excuses. Here’s a track from Happy Birthday to get you in the mood.
