Organically formed by fellow musicians when they were students at UTSA in 2013, Parallelephants create synth and soul-infused R&B grooves to dance or just chill out to. The aesthetic brainchild of producer and multi-instrumentalist Thom Sykes, Parallelephants’ soulful ballads and slow jams reference the heart of early funk and soul with a modern twist.

“Death is eternal, as is rock.” So says Austin psych-rock outfit Being Dead. Formed in an alternate universe a little over a year ago, the band has been entertaining fans in Austin with electric live shows and a recently released 5 song EP, Fame Money Death by Drive-By. Headed up by Juli Keller and Cody Dosier, Being Dead throws everything from bouncy surf rock to fat fuzzed-out guitars and animal sounds into a single song. Just take a look at their recent pop-up session filmed in KUTX producer Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon’s East Austin home and we’re pretty sure you’ll be howling along by the end of the song.

Fresh off of a July residency with Jesse Woods at the Continental Club,  Austin’s Odessa creates hypnotic tracks combining vocal harmonies and atmospheric indie-pop instrumentation reminiscent of the oceans she grew up by. Finding her voice for songwriting after playing the violin for most of her life, her songs evoke the sensibilities of fellow modern folk-pop artists Joseph and Lucius. Odessa played a few songs for us ahead of her upcoming second album release this fall produced by Jonathan Wilson and mixed by Brian Eno.

Sir Woman is a new project from Wild Child vocalist, violinist, and songwriter, Kelsey Wilson. In her own words, “Sir Woman became an outlet for me to work through my own shit going on while I was touring and making music with all of the insanely talented people I get to create with.” While the seed for this new music might have been planted while on tour with Wild Child, Kelsey’s new songs are a pretty big departure from that band’s bright indie-folk sound. Sir Woman’s two recently released singles, “Highroad” and “Making Love” find Kelsey’s crystal clear vocals bouncing along with some seriously funky organs, soaring string arrangements, and a silky smooth horn section. For this stripped-down pop-up session, Kelsey left the orchestra at home and gave us a beautiful version of “Highroad.” Peep the pop-up session above and follow Sir Woman with the links below!
