We’re at the San Jose Hotel on South Congress for their SXSJ performances. While we gather our coverage and cut some more audio, here are a few songs. We’ll definitely have more by tomorrow.

Merge Records said, “Their music can be classified as 21st-century folk music, imbued with dense shoegaze guitars, nearly melodic rhythms, and impeccable splashes of electronic color.” It’s a pretty spot on description of Baltimore band Wye Oak. After receiving vast critical acclaim for their last album, Civilian (2011), the dynamic duo is coming out with a fresh new sound in their upcoming record, Shriek, set to debut April 29. It contains no guitar, and instead features keyboard covering upper register (guitar-like) parts and bass guitar. The feel has been described as a strange mashup of Mercy-era St. Vincent mixed with a frightening alternative of Annie Lennox’s band, Eurthymics. Wye Oak on Facebook. Wye Oak on Twitter.

Wye Oak graced us with six great songs including tracks from their upcoming release. We have a few pictures too on Flickr.

The Bright Light Social Hour #FSRocks 3.13.14

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014

You might think 9 a.m. is too early to dance, and you might think again when Austin band Bright Light Social Hour takes the stage. Part straight up rock n’ roll, part psychedelic-rock, retro-soul, and electro-dance music, the southern rock foursome will at the very least get your feet a’tappin’ and your head a’bobbin’. Bandmates Curtis Roush (guitar, vocals), Jack O’Brien (bass, guitar, vocals) and Joseph Mirasole (percussion) rocked our world at The Four Seasons during SXSW 2014. TBLSH on Facebook.

All six tracks from Thursday’s KUTX showcase are below. They were going to play a 5-song set, but we’re glad they asked and added on “Detroit.” Watch their performance of “Sweet Madeline.” We have a few pictures too on Flickr.

Phox #FSRocks 3.13.14

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014

Six high school friends out of Baraboo, WI is how the band Phox began. But as it goes, life got in the way–college, careers, and significant others drove them each in different directions. Until it didn’t. As if by divine intervention, they all ended up back home, and eventually, cohabitating in Madison and making music. Bedroom-recorded tunes and documentary-like footage of the band surfaced garnering them quite a fan base. Their music is whimsical, bohemian, and youthful, with quirky touches like whistling and kazoo. Monica Martin’s voice is airy and dream-like, making you wonder if your feet have left the ground. It’s a perfect fit for the fresh, offbeat background instrumentation. Phox on Facebook. Phox on Twitter.

Their five tracks from Thursday’s KUTX showcase at The Four Seasons are below. Our YT video is their performance of 1936. We have a few pictures too on Flickr. Great stuff … all of it!
