The weather was beautiful in Austin on Saturday night and the setting was perfect for a much anticipated show by Seattle’s own Cave Singers. Though the crowd may have been a bit thin due to so many shows going on around town, it seemed like everyone in attendance agreed that the band killed it. Follow the jump for a few quick thoughts.
The Almighty Rhombus are a new band to me who hail from the great white north in a sort of small town called Sudbury (raise your hand if you had to look that up). Today I’m sharing with you a bright pop tune from the band called “She Didn’t Want Me” that’s the reason for my new found interest in the group. When I listen to the song, I can’t help but think of old friends, and fellow Canadians, Ruby Coast with their light and airy pop music. If you dig, check out more of their songs on bandcamp and say hello.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/The-Almighty-Rhombus-The-Almighty-Rhombus-EP-01-She-Didnt-Want-Me.mp3]

I mentioned awhile back how excited I was to hear that Saturday Looks Good to Me are back on the indie music scene with some tasty pop music. Already we’ve heard new song “Invisible Friend” and today we get this fun pop song “Break In”. I love that this band continues to make beautiful and catchy pop songs that anyone would be hard pressed to resist. I dare you to resist!
As previously mentioned, new album One Kiss Ends it All will be available on May 21st via Polyvinyl Records.
Painted Palms are a band that have played the opening role to numerous touring acts coming through town like Of Montreal and Starfucker, to name a few. To be honest, I’ve never paid much attention to the band until today when I found myself jamming along to this new song “Click”. It’s a bright and sunny pop song that could easily be compared to the aforementioned bands that they’ve toured with in Austin. However you want to describe or compare it, you can’t deny that you’re already bobbing your head with that catchy ass beat.
This tune is the B-side to the group’s new 7″ single Carousel which is available for shipping on March 22nd via Polyvinyl Records. You can also hear the A-side streaming via the Painted Palms bandcamp page.
