On Friday July 8, Austin’s funky jam band called Resonant Frequency showcased their incredibly firm understanding of the physics behind music and reverberation, and used it to their advantage.
Resonant Frequency is a western nu-funk experience that paints an image of a rainy evening drive in 1983 Japan, or 1979 San Diego. Resonant Frequency is music to listen to when you’re watching the sun set on your camping trip.
Summer is here!

Austin is revered worldwide for it’s constant support and celebration of the art of music. Festivals like ACL, Euphoria and SXSW are the most obvious testament to the cities infatuation with live music and creation as a movement. Fortunately, these high profile music and arts festivals are only the tip of the iceberg in the city of weird. The more “established” collectives and aesthetic trailblazers, who reign at the top of the visionary hierarchy, possess an influence that kindly trickles down into the spirits of the millennial generation. With a firm understanding of the future and a dream of a brighter tomorrow, Austin’s Gen Y is manifesting innovation, inspiration and intellectuality into an artistic revolution. Despite battling a seemingly never ending “quarter life crisis,” Austin’s initiative youth is witnessing a major spike in success and recognition. This past Sunday (Dec. 4) at Scratchhouse, five young, local, creative collectives collaborated in efforts to shine a light on over 40 undiscovered musicians in the presence of already-established artists. The unification of Brodies Fault, New Waves, Weird City Entertainment, On Vinyl Music and Ben “McNasty” Buck resulted in an eclectic, groovy, 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. get down–One2One Fest.
Although Austin has only seen a handful of cold weather days this fall, the crisp air and shorter days validate the notion that winter is most definitely on its way. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for long winter nights full live music and clouds of singing breath fog filling the air.
A sincere thank-you letter from On Vinyl’s founder and sound guide for our loyal readership!

Simple tasks like using the restroom or getting water can become quite a spectacle at commercially operated music festivals.
