It shouldn’t take you too long to get sucked into the sounds of Sooner; I know I got hooked the minute those guitar lines jumped right on in to my life, as my toes were tapping and my head was a-bobbing. While the sound borders on the poppier side of post-punk, the band ramp up the sound into a more distorted pop rock sound for the chorus, with the vocals pushing themselves higher in tone, driving the hook right into your ears. It’s the perfect blend of some of my favorite vibes, so I’m definitely looking at Days and Nights to be a sure-fire hit; it drops via Good Eye Records on March 25th.
We’re a full week out from the incredible inaugural Sound on Sound Festival, and boy, has a lot happened since that blissful last weekend. What I thought would simply be a week of post-fest-depression turned into what I guess will be the next four years of depression and anxiety for the country and the people I love in it. Regardless of that, I’m going to take comfort in writing this recap of past Sunday and maybe I’ll can pretend I’m about tomake that drive out to McDade once more and let my body be cleansed by rain and punk rock…
Go back to happier times and read on for my recap of day 3 of Sound on Sound.
Since the announcement of founding fathers Graham Williams and James Moody breaking off from Transmission Entertainment to start their company Margin Walker, we’ve all been awaiting the lineup and location for their new festival Sound on Sound. Well the wait is over today, and I’ve gotta say, this thing is super impressive with how fast they put it together. We of course love Beach House, Descendents, Wild Nothing, METZ, etc. etc. etc. I’m personally crapping my pants for Thursday! Just like Fun Fest use to deliver, this lineup gives a little something for everyone to enjoy and rivals all other festival lineups in town. Full lineup is attached on poster or via Sound on Sound’s website.
As far as location goes, Sound on Sound will take place at Sherwood Forest Faire just East of Austin in McDade, Texas.
Three day tickets are currently on sale via soundonsoundfest.com.
There’s really only one show you NEED to go to. That’s the Ramesh album release over at the Belmont, which kicks off at 7 PM. I’ll be there, smiling, and hopefully selling LPs. But, for those of you who aren’t into Ramesh, which I completely respect, there’s tons going on tomorrow night, so here’s some places you might want to find yourself. Read more
