Old School Rocker Sort from Zeus

A lot of bands have nostalgically hit back at the 80s, but that’s not the path that Zeus seems to take.  They’ve gone even further, hitting up on the AOR sounds of the 70s, using sharp guitar licks and Rod Stewart-esque vocals to kick out their jams. The group are about to release their new record, Busting Visions, on Arts and Crafts this March, and if you dig you’re rock n’ roll with a bit of old school swagger, then this is definitely the one for you.  I can see you jamming around the house, singing with your friends, just promise me not to spill the beer!

From the Closet: The Faces

faceThis week we bring you a tune you’ve all probably heard, at least for those of you who are fans of Wes Anderson. Or maybe you just like to go through Rod Stewart‘s entire catalog. Regardless, this is a pure gem. And, to top it all off, Austin is now home to one of The Faces founding members, Ian McLagan, who now fronts The Bump Band. Cheers.
