It’s probably pretty clear that I’m obsessed with all things Tijuana Panthers, so when I realized that Coromandelles was a supergroup of sorts, fronted by Dan from TP, I of course got in on the party. However, there’s definitely a distinct difference, both stylistically and in the recording process. For me, it seems like the natural evolution of pop music in the last five or so years…taking on the garage/surf aesthetic and applying it to the swelling combination of harmonies and melody. It’s sort of like your favorite Cali garage bands doing their take on the Polyphonic Spree…minus the whole cult thing. The group release Late Bloomer’s Bloomers on October 20th via Porch Party Records.
Over here at ATH we’ve been raving about Tiger Waves for some time, but we hadn’t seen the young band in the live setting just yet. So, we jumped at the chance to catch the boys over at Frank, along with a few other local Austin acts, Milk Thistle and Gentleman Rogues.
Read on for our thoughts.
If you haven’t checked out the kid show Yo Gabba Gabba, you really should make a point to do so. Besides featuring some musical guests like Mates of State, The Shins, and MGMT, the show is fairly entertaining and goofy. The Nick Jr. show is also about to put out a soundtrack on October 2oth called Music is Awesome… which features some solid indie acts like The Roots, Chromeo, and this new track from Of Montreal. Also try searching Yo Gabba Gabba on youtube and watch some clips from the show. They are sure to get a laugh… or at least make you not want to grow up.[audio: http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/14-Brush-Brush-Brush.mp3]
