A week ago we dropped our Top Austin Albums, and one of the surprises was the debut from Stiletto Feels, The Big Fist. We had high expectations for Geoff Earle’s new project, but I honestly didn’t expect such a finished project. It’s a listen filled with all sorts of touches, be they electronic or indie rock…or even just great riffs. This week the band have unleashed their video for the super-hit, “Steel Your Guitar,” which is like a smoothed out R&B rock n’ roll jam. Check out the video below and grab the LP from GTZ Records.
When I heard Geoff Earle was working on a new project, I immediately had high expectations, knowing his capabilities from year’s of playing in the Austin scene. I didn’t expect the work to be so impressive so soon. They just released Big Fist, and it’s filled with danceable grooves and hits that should definitely put the rest of the music world on notice. “Steal Your Guitar” is definitely a standout track, but I’ve taken a liking to the softer track, “The Difference,” which shows the group isn’t just a one-trick pony. Whether you’re an Austinite or a someone who checks our site from time to time, I think you’ll be equally impressed with Stiletto Feels new album; it’s available now via GTZ Records!

Yesterday our friends over at RoA tossed up this great track from The Big Fist, which is the new project of Geoff Earle, who has been one of our long time Austin favorites. He’s a super talented dude, and after the disbanding of his last group, Freshmillions, he seems to have found his voice again (you know, in case he ever lost it). It’s a funky track with rad samples and a smooth vocal performance; it just goes to show that there’s hidden gems around every corner in Austin. We’ll keep you posted on the band when more news comes our way.
