Last week was one of those weeks where I wanted to write about all the songs; Ryan crushed it with tons of SXSW interviews, letting you get to know the likes of Best Move, Coyle Girelli, No Swoon and more. So, we’ve got to go back and give you a quick list of all the jams, and there were tons! You had new stuff from Austinites Friday Boys, Bright Light Social Hour and Wiretree, then Neutrals and Mick Love made my weekend with hits at the end of the week. There’s tons to browse through here, so go check it out.
Mo Dotti‘s been bouncing around in our small circle for a few days now, and it’s definitely something we’d like on your radar. Plus, it’s got a personal touch with our old friend Joey Oaxaca doing the recording here; he executes the perfect balance between the two guitar lines allowing the rhythm to maintain the song’s gravitational pull while the other guitar sputters off into space-age dissonance. Throughout, Gina Negrini’s sweet voice serves as the sun, with everything orbiting around it; I do love when they peel back the noise to hit at a more traditional 90s guitar sound around the 3 minute mark, which is my sweet spot! The band drop their Guided Imagery EP on March 18th via Smoking Room.
