Wake Party: “Awful Good”

After just two short years of playing together as a trio, the sole three studio singles from Austin’s Wake Party are still plenty to keep us close to the casket. Wake Party’s bold take on the rock n roll genre puts their sound right up there with The Black Keys, alt-J, Alabama Shakes, Arctic Monkeys and more, while retaining the humility that makes them a must-see local act.

Late last year Wake Party put their debut EP Awful Good on display, and alongside hints of a bigger release in the near future, they’ll be joining Favor and Ain’t Nothins this Thursday at Hole in the Wall. So before Thursday, take ten minutes to burn through the raw power chords and high octane energy on the record, whose quality definitely stays true to its title track, “Awful Good”!
