Up and comers The Couch are a band we feel everyone should really be paying attention to right now in Austin.  They’re a great band with loads of talent, not to mention a great new single “Kaiser” that’s creating all kinds of buzz in town.  Joining the group are fellow talented locals The Sour Notes and relatively unknown Summer Swells.  If anyone has a link for SS, holler.

Dudes, you gotta go to this.  I know it’s in the non-traditional part of the music scene, but sometimes that’s where the best stuff goes down. Friday night is a huge bash featuring tons of local acts on three different stages, so you can bounce around and see what you dig.  Me, well, I’ll definitely be checking out our friends Young Girls and Shivery Shakes; Sour Notes will also be on my list! Of course, some of these bands I haven’t seen yet, so I’m going to try to get in as many bands as possible. Come out and have a blast with us!

New Music From The Sour Notes

Man it seems like it’s been a hot minute since we posted a new tune from local ATH favorite band The Sour Notes.  We were big fans of their recent record Last Looks, as it appeared on our year end Texas albums list, so we try to make a point to post their music when it’s sent our way.  This new song “Two Hands Wait” appears on a new split 7″ the band just put out with fellow local band Marmalakes.  Enjoy.

The Sour Notes have slowly become one of the most talked about bands in Austin as they continue to pump out solid tunes and play the local scene.  Well now the guys are prepping the release of their upcoming album Last Looks on February 17th with a release show at the Mohawk, which we’ll tell you more about closer to the date.  For now we’d like to share this new song with you called “Hot Pink Flares”.  The catchy new number recently appeared on a 7″ self-released by the Sour Notes and will also be track #2 on the new album.  Also for a limited time, the band is offering up their entire discography for free download on their bandcamp page. Keep up the rock guys.
