Octopus Project 5.9.17

Octopus Project 5.9.17

Posted by on Jul 19, 2017

Austin’s favorite Avant-electro-pop quartet The Octopus Project is at it again, and they’ve brought their already profound and tightly crafted music to a new level. The most exciting thing about The Octopus Project has always been that they are absolutely fearless. No sound is off limits, no topic untouchable (they have a song called “Porno Disaster”), and no concept beyond their reach. The only limitation is the number of hands they have, which coincidentally is 8. Their recent album Memory Mirror stretches their already experimental sound to new heights with the help of notable producers Dave Fridmann and Danny Reisch. Enough talk. Let’s hear some music. Scroll down to check out the Studio 1A after hours session!

Fenech-Soler 5.11.17

Fenech-Soler 5.11.17

Posted by on May 12, 2017

UK based electro-pop group Fenech-Soler are storming the U.S. with their infectious grooves and earworm melodies. Coming strong off their recent release, Zilla, the group shows no signs of slowing down. The band’s sound is tight and well produced, thanks to brothers/band members Ross and Ben Duffy. They’ve created a sound like a more human Daft Punk, with some east coast (American east coast, that is) indie sensibilities. Fenech-Soler Stopped by Studio 1A to show us some of their tunes, check them out below!

Sondre Lerche 5.10.17

Sondre Lerche 5.10.17

Posted by on May 11, 2017

There’s something in the water (snow?) in the Nordic countries. From ABBA and A-Ha to Björk and Sigur Rós, it’s hard to call the sheer volume of amazing artists coming out of one small region a coincidence. So it’s no coincidence that Sondre Lerche is stealing our hearts, one song at a time. Sondre grew up in a suburb of Bergen, Norway in the heyday of synth-driven pop music: the 80’s. He started taking guitar lessons at the age of 8, and when classical music didn’t strike his fancy his teacher showed him some Brazillian bossa nova tunes, and he was hooked. Last March Sondre released his 8th studio album, Pleasure, and those influences are clear. The songs are glimmering, driving pop tunes featuring an arsenal of finely tuned synth sounds, but with a rhythmic, harmonic, and melodic complexity heavily reminiscent of Brazillian sambas and bossas that make for a unique and fascinating combination. Sondre stopped by Studio 1A on his world tour, check out his session below!

Joe Pug 5.10.17

Posted by on May 11, 2017

It’s so refreshing to hear a musician do something simple incredibly well. It’s the sign of a true musician; when your songs hold their own when paired down to just a voice and a guitar, without any fancy production or studio magic, you know you have somethings special. Joe Pug is something special. After dropping out of college the night before his senior year started, he packed up and drove straight to Chicago to pursue a career in songwriting. Since then he’s moved to Austin, and boy are we glad he did. His most recent album, Windfall, is his finest work to date. The songs are clean, it’s folk music at it’s finest. The lyrics weave these beautifully crafted narratives, and Joe pairs them with his attentive guitar playing with grace and ease. Joe stopped by Studio 1A
