Austin Favorites Holiday Mountain Want to Know Your Name in New J-Poptastic Music Video

Reigning Austin odd pop champions and 2014’s Deli Austin Artist of the Year Holiday Mountain are back to whack you upside the brain with a new and ultra-colorful music video that’ll get your summer party going. The vid, for new hard-dancing quirky ass pop song ‘Cómo Te Llamas,’ is all future fashion, exaggerated butts ‘n boobs and Holiday Mountain lead Laura Patiño using her trademark voice to ask what your name is while heading a troupe of brightly bedecked dancers (clothes designed by up-and-coming Austin fashion house Witchxxdoctor) through a surreal J-pop infused world of fun that has been put together by director Brittany Reeber. Holiday Mountain has been cemented as one of Austin’s groups most willing to flirt with pure pop music, while also being one of the acts most willing to push creative boundaries, and as you’ll see below, they’re still driving hard in that lane here in the middle of 2016. Get your weird on below, y’all.





Oaktown Indie Mayhem Releases TV Heads Debut EP - Total Fvcker

The Oakland based record label, Oaktown Indie Mayhem has released the new EP from the experimental band, TV Heads.

After soaking up the creative influences of the Bay Area for many years previous, and marinating in Los Angeles’ vibrant scene of grungy post-punk and garage rock, ambient electronic experimentation, and cross-pollinating performance art mediums, TV Heads was ripe to begin recording Total Fvcker. The band finds it's sound in the collective experiences of the trio; arching guitar lines, gritty synths, and raw drums and bass. Galloway and Tavella mix their distinctive voices together to create lush vocal harmonies that launch into wild choruses, a'la a Jeff Buckley and Annie Clark fronted Smashing Pumpkins.

Half Waif tours with Pinegrove + plays Market Hotel on 08.06

With her latest project, Half Waif's Nandi Rose Plunkett has successfully bridged the ever-growing chasm between "avant" and pop, taking Radiohead's lesson to a more intimate and less pretentious place. The band's sophomore album 'Probable Depths" is an intriguing blend of synth and orchestral pop full of texture and otherworldly melodies. Half Waif will be back in Brooklyn performing as a trio on June 6th at the Market Hotel, to the end of their ongoing tour throughout the US. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Earth Heart to release debut LP on 8/5

While the two are often correlated, it's not always necessary for music that's catchy to be pristine as well. Boston band Earth Heart is a prime example of this: with their shout-sung vocals, swampy drums and lo-fi guitars, they do their darn best to produce a sound that's abrasive, but thanks to the great songwriting, their music is still very satisfying. While mostly sticking to this garage pop sound on their previous tracks, such as recent single "Homesick" (streaming below), the Boston trio has shown the ability to pull off more "avant" stuff as well, like in their nearly nine minute track "BURN" from 2014. This versatility and talent should make their debut LP, due on 8/5, interesting to say the least. Earth Heart also made an appearance on WEMF radio's Sticky Hits program on 5/28, and will be performing live at the pin Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery on July 13th. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber
