Seattle based band The Night Beats mine as well change their address and move down to Austin, because their sound truly evokes images of some of our favorite psych rockers in town. Ironically enough, the band will be making their way into town next weekend for the annual Psych Fest at the Seaholm Power Plant. This new song “Ain’t Dumbo” will appear on the upcoming debut self-titled LP from The Night Beats due out June 28th on Trouble in Mind Records.

The incestuous punk rock scene in Texas is alive and well, and I’m grateful for that fact. Wax Museums returns to the forefront of the movement with their latest release, Eye Times, after a three year hiatus, which will be in stores June 28th via Trouble in Mind Records. Lyrically, you’ll probably find the track to be a touch on the simple side, but it’s such a quick power-driven number that you can’t help but get attached from the moment those drums clash with the guitars in a cacophonous moment of energy and melody. With members from Bad Sports, Silver Shampoo and Mind Spiders, there’s not a reason in the world why this won’t be super awesome.

The Paperhead is a Nashville based band comprised of 3 friends who are mere 18 years of age. These 3 teens apparently got together last summer, recorded a record, and are now ready to share their style with the music world. A first sample of what these guys are all about can be found below in first single from the band “Back to Those Days”. It wields a very old school type feel harking back to the days of fuzz pop and pysch rock. Fans of the style can pick up a copy of the group’s debut self-titled LP on March 22nd via Trouble in Mind Records.

I was sent this new song “Summer’s Gone” from San Francisco based outfit The Wrong Words yesterday and have been playing it on repeat ever since. It’s a pretty simple song, but oh so catchy in all it’s pop goodness. The tune is set to appear on the band’s self-titled debut LP out March 22nd on Trouble in Mind Records.
