Holy Wave have been applying a lysergic varnish to Austin’s airwaves ever since they landed in town over 5 years ago. Like their forefathers Spacemen 3 and 13th Floor Elevators, Holy Wave conjure viscous clouds of fuzzy, reverby, droney, spirt-quest-friendly garage-psyche.
Our song of the day today comes from Holy Wave’s new LP, Freaks of Nurture, which drops on March 11th. Check out their Studio 1A performance at the bottom of the page and see their tour kickoff show at the Barracuda this Friday, February 26th. And, of course, you can see them at Levitation (Austin Psyche Fest) in May while perhaps accompanied by the appropriate “accouterments” for such an occasion.
