Hundred Visions’ 2012 debut Permanent Basement was the perfect descriptor for the Austin band. Their scuzzy garage rock sounds like it was conceived in a basement, but there’s a freedom and looseness that many similar-minded acts sorely lack. In 2011, Hundred Visions introduced itself with “Last Cab From Tunis,” a song that has more in common with LCD Soundsystem than the Velvet Underground. Even their full-on rockers are unhinged in a danceable way. “You’re Gonna Cut Me Loose” cuts loose with distortion and a driving beat, sounding like a Texas cousin to Ty Segall. And just like the first time, Hundred Visions accurately sum up the style with a simple album title: SPITE. Catch its release tomorrow night at Hotel Vegas.
