Slack Capital 2 is a compilation of music by 27 of the coolest bands in Austin. All proceeds go to SafePlace, which provides support for victims of domestic and sexual violence. To make sure every one of these bands gets the attention they deserve, we’re unveiling one song per day.
Song of the day: Kay Odyssey – “Slipstream”
For a band with “odyssey” in their name, it’s fitting that “Slipstream” feels like a journey. The guitar-heavy track is psychedelic and mysterious, with swirling sounds that evoke a heavy trip, across a desert or in one’s own head. Band leader Kristina Boswell sings in a Roy Orbison-meets-Corin Tucker wail, gliding upward as the song reaches epic guitar god heights. That’s where they shine the most, when, as cymbals crash ecstatically, the dense and fearful atmosphere succumbs to the will of one who has found their voice.
