Apropos to their name, Austin indie synthpop quintet Scenery has comfortably spaced out their live shows and studio releases since the premiere of their debut single “Radio Beach” back in 2015. While guitarist and vocalist Richard Kentopp takes charge of the lyrics, his four fellow bandmates share plenty of responsibility in composing, recording and mixing Scenery’s unique tones. Following the release of the eleven-song LP Two Stares at the beginning of last year, Scenery has scaled it down for intimate brand new material in the form of a four-track cassette tape.
Scenery puts a mark on your musical map with said cassette tape, entitled Lady Bird, this Friday night at the Mohawk along with Black Books, Kay Odyssey, and Ramesh. Scenery last joined us in Studio 1A back in 2016 and this afternoon’s taped Studio 1A session airs tonight at 9pm. No need to wait several hours to hear some of the new stuff; enjoy the title track from Lady Bird right now and its lyrical ode to finding and losing love in the 1990s Austin music scene.
