Garner Sloan: “Bad Tidings”

Austin’s Garner Sloan is paving the way for a genre he refers to as “Americana Gothic” – a somber amalgamation of roots, rock, folk and blues. Originally from Coleman, Texas, Sloan’s songwriting draw as much influence from Cormac McCarthy and Edgar Allan Poe as it does Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt. Balancing a life of touring with his band and solitary songwriting, Sloan is set to release his full-length album, Liquid Sails & Bobcat Tales, on May 27th before hitting the road in June. For a sneak preview of his dark world, check out the second track from Liquid Sails, “Bad Tidings”.

Garner Sloan plays live in our Studio 1A on Thursday, May 25 at 3 p.m. and at Stay Gold on Saturday, May 27.

Palm Daze: “Controls”

Song of the Day

Palm Daze: “Controls”

Posted by on May 16, 2017

Veterans of the local music scene may have wondered during the past couple years, “what ever happened to Isaiah The Mosaic?” Well, with the exception of a single personnel change, they’re still alive and well, but performing as Palm DazeThe Austin-based psychedelic dream-pop four-piece had three releases under their previous moniker, with the last Isaiah The Mosaic single, “Heroin Island,” being released as recently as 2015. Featuring Eric McClung (lead vocals, synth, guitar), Ryan Heath (drums, samples), Tyler Delaune (bass guitar), and Gabriel Phoenix (replacing Phillip McClung on synth and vocals), the group reformed in early 2016, bearing the new name Palm Daze.

Incorporating sounds they describe as “oceanic”, “spiritual” and “strobing”, Palm Daze’s debut EP, Controls was released April 21st – and it really is like listening to Isaiah The Mosaic but with a fresh perspective. Just check out of the album’s title track- a spacey synth-soaked arrangement that demands listen after listen and highlights how much Palm Daze has come in the short time since they rose from the ashes of Isaiah.

TOMA: “A Certain Kind” (Live In Studio 1A)

Song of the Day

TOMA: “A Certain Kind” (Live In Studio 1A)

Posted by on May 9, 2017

Forget Soma. For all your neo-psych power-pop ailments, we prescribe a healthy dose of TOMA.

Constantly in pursuit of unique sounds to incorporate, Waldo Wittenmyer (keyboard/vocals), Willy Jay (guitar/vocals), Jake Hiebert (drums), and Neil Byers (bass) equally contribute their fair share of TOMA’s songwriting and arranging. Though the four have been making their name locally for a few years, their debut album, Aroma, recently came like manna from heaven to fans of TOMA’s live performances.

Released at the tail end of March and produced by White Denim’s James Petralli, Aroma‘s eight tracks combine the best of classic ’70s tunes with modern day neo-psychedelia for an electrifying effect. Check out “A Certain Kind,” recorded live in Studio 1A. Just don’t get TOMA-tose.
