Those of you living in Austin, or who picked up the Casual Victim Pile compilation, might be wondering what happened to Follow That Bird. Well, they opted for a name change, going with Mirror Travel. This doesn’t mean the band’s sound has changed that much, still churning out rock and roll with a tinge of garage sound pushing things along. You’ll be able to find this tune on the band’s new record, Mexico, which is being released by Modern Outsider on October 15th of this year. History points towards a record filled with allusions to the Southwest, and fueled by hard work: can’t get here fast enough.
Bands have a hard time making it all the way overseas, but I’ll gladly share with you this recent tune from TRAAMS. The Chichester group drops in influences from bands like Mclusky, with pummeling drum lines and jagged guitar licks. The vocals are a little bit muddy, but they step in line with the guitars and drums, adding an extra bit of force to the energetic number. The group has just unleashed their Ladders EP via Fat Cat Records, and it’s chock-full of songs that are going to get you out of your chair. Happy Tuesday folks.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/07-Mexico-1.mp3]
