On Vinyl recently sat down with one of Austin’s youngest old-school-feel-good jam bands, The Selfless Lovers. Fresh off a too short, but energetic set on the inside stage at Mohawk, lead singer Nik Parr gave us a deeper insight into his and the band’s dive into the Austin music scene. The soulful rock and roll group opened for Ripe, a touring funk band from Boston, on May 4, 2018 to a sold out venue.
Fans of CAPYAC can go back to sleeping soundly at night now that the band has revealed the identity of the mysterious Donny Flamingo.
The eccentric Austin native band released their highly anticipated fourth independent album Who is Donny Flamingo? to fans on February 23, 2018. To help celebrate in true CAPYAC fashion, Empire Control Room & Garage housed a mini-festival release party. There were DJs, decked out homemade headpieces for sale and, of course, hundreds of pink flamingos!
“Silly Alex, don’t think that way.” – (“Alex” / Expectations)
Austin’s family sized folk band, Wild Child, released their newest album, Expectations on February 9, 2018. Those sensible opening words above are appropriately offered up by a child in the opening track, “Alex”. Like the 7-piece band’s latest release, children are free from most limitations and social norms. Wild Child’s Expectations is a refreshing collection of the band’s musical ideas free of any hesitation due to societal norms and regulations as to how a record should be constructed. Expectations takes the various ideas the band wanted to explore and somehow simultaneously encompasses the band’s familiar sound adored by fans for the last seven years.
The mega six-piece band Edison Chair unleashed their newest video and single on February 6, 2018. “I Hope You Get Everything” is the upbeat rock and roll band’s newest single and latest release since their “Sí Se Puede” video release back in March 2017. It seems like a trend the band has created by not only surprising fans with new music, but with something they can treat their eyes to, as well. On Vinyl sat down with the young band a week prior to the video release to find out more about the now-a-days unheard of unicorn band all born and raised in Austin.
