The Young
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 10:00pm - 10:40pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    From Austin Powell, The Austin Chronicle:

    Sometimes Hans Zimmerman wakes up in a cold sweat, gasping for air. In his recurring dream, he's struggling against some unknown force – suffocating.

    "I can't really explain it," says the 27-year-old singer/guitarist, who believes the episodes are a form of sleep apnea. "It's been happening these last couple of years. I didn't realize what was going on until someone saw me one night. It turns out I was holding my breath the whole time."

    That sensation of being trapped between states of consciousness is a central theme of the Young's highly anticipated debut for Matador Records, Dub Egg.

    "I was thinking about places like that," adds Zimmerman, "the gaps in life, between good times and bad times, collapsed into one moment."

    To capture that vibe, the band – Zimmerman, bassist Jason Costanszo, second guitarist Kyle Edwards, and drummer Ryan Maloney – encamped to a cabin in Vanderpool, out in western Bandera County. Zimmerman, having previously recorded local contemporaries including Cruddy, Women in Prison, and the Zoltars for 12XU compilation Casual Victim Pile II, rolled tape into the early mornings.

    "It's off the grid, no cell phone service," he says. "We borrowed a van, loaded the tape machine and our gear, and lived with that record. It was just the four of us, hanging out and recording. There was a little creek so we were fishing, and throwing horseshoes. We would just wake up and turn on the amps."

    The setting pierces the LP like barbed wire. Judging from first track "Livin' Free," Dub Egg's a fiercely rustic work with classic rock undertones and a dark, deserted mystique. In contrast to the Young's Super Secret singles and Voyagers of Legend, a 2010 full-length for Mexican Summer, Matador co-founder Gerard Cosloy called the new disc "The sort of expansive guitar master class (never at the expense of terrific songs, mind you) they've only hinted at previously."

    "Matador gave us a pretty incredible opportunity," says Zimmerman. "Most people would probably have gone into a nicer studio, but for us it was an opportunity to withdraw even further into our own stuff. It was a dream come true to be out there."

Screaming Females
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 11:00pm - 11:40pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)
    Screaming Females' seven years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America's punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Fittingly, for Screaming Females' 5th album 'Ugly', the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. The album's 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn't end there. The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. 'Ugly' has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with

Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues
    Thursday March 15, 2012 7:30pm - 8:10pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    Raised by Nanjing intellectuals, Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues frontman Hua Dong was exposed to rock music at an early age and began writing songs and playing instruments in his teens. After a few years spent studying abroad in Germany, he returned to Nanjing where he began drumming for seminal Chinese rockers PK14. It was in the Nanjing underground music scene that Hua Dong met bassist Liu Min, who had been playing in bands around town. The pair eventually drifted to Beijing in 2003, where they were introduced to drummer Ma Hui - Hua Dong switched to guitar, and Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues was born. The trio soon began electrifying Beijing audiences with their darkly riveting, explosive performances. In the Fall of 2005, the band signed to Modern Sky Records and recorded their debut EP "Cut Off!", released later that year. During recording sessions, Rebuilding attracted the attention of legendary composer/producer and all-round nice guy Brian Eno, who was using the same studio to record some of his Afternoon Ambient Works. Eno sat down with the band and contributed guest keyboards on several tracks. Rebuilding's catalogue of influences are combed from internet piracy, black market CDs, and mix tapes worn thin. Hua Dong credits bands like Gang of Four,Bauhaus,Television,and Pere Ubu among his greatest influences. In March 2007, Rebuilding toured the United States around the renowned South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, which garnered a good amount of attention from US press outlets including The New York Times, Village Voice, The Onion NY/ Chicago, Fader, Time Out NY, The Austin Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, and others. While in New York City for a handful of shows, the band was invited to the ABC News studios for an appearance on "The Mix", and were a few months later featured on NPR (National Public Radio). 2009,they published their first LP "Watch out! The climate has changed, fat mum rises...". 2010,the band join in CMJ, NewYork. 2011,tour with Gang of Four in Australia; join in the Summer Sonic Music Festival as headliner on Asia Stage; toured with Health around China.

Howler
    Thursday March 15, 2012 10:30pm - 11:10pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)
    Based in Minneapolis, Howler are Jordan Gatesmith (vocals / guitar), Ian Nygaard (guitar), France Camp (bass), Max Petrek (keyboard) and Brent Mayes (drums). What started as a side project for Jordan Gatesmith in 2010, quickly took off, catching the ear of the NME, which led to Rough Trade signing them up for a worldwide deal. The band are a straight forward rock band, in the tradition of the Modern Lovers but have a "surf thrash" edge that reminds one of the Cramps at times. Barely 19 years old, Jordan has already wrapped up his first US tour, and is currently in the studio finishing the full-length, and will be supporting The Vaccines' full UK tour in november.

Gardens & Villa
    Friday March 16, 2012 10:30pm - 11:10pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    In the year of the saxophone, Santa Barbara's Gardens & Villa give us the flute. And along the way, G&V effectively wipe clear the vaseline from the murky bedroom funk of recent days. G&V bang out instant classics -- each crystal clear and immaculate, but no less sweeping or languid. Their debut is a youthful exploration of just how opulent and pop starkness can go. It also leaves an impression of California in the way that Richard Diebenkorn's Ocean Park series or the pool party scene from The Graduate both do, always sensed more than stated outright.
    Gardens & Villa channel all the taut pop precisions of 90s Britpop of bands like Blur (borrowed from the 60s anyhow), and send it through an 80s synth filter both undeniably coastal and modern. It's Spoon's Kill The Moonlight lost in a daydream, but with that same hungry energy. Gardens & Villa may simultaneously pull from Gary Numan, The Kinks and odder prog within one composition. And like a fine sweet tea, it's made just that right kind of sugary -- though even the most upbeat tunes have an undercurrent of the bittersweet and the lost at heart.
    In 2010, Gardens & Villa traveled to Oregon to record their debut with visionary, vibemaster and labelmate Richard Swift. Together, they put some sand in the sheets of new wave ("Black Hills") and pop some translucent funk ("Orange Blossom"). There's also a level of effortless class maintained across the whole set. Each and every lush little gem explores the wonderful mystery between intuition and proficiency, between tension and repose.
    Gardens & Villa are Chris Lynch, Adam Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, Shane McKillop and Dusty Ineman.

Dinosaur Jr.
    Saturday March 17, 2012 12:30am - 2:00am @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    Dinosaur Jr. is widely recognized as one of the most significant American rock bands of all time. Preceding Nirvana by several years, Dinosaur Jr. was instrumental in bringing the crashing sounds of lead guitar back to indie rock. It wasn't just the band’s signature metallic haze that made an impression on listeners; front man J Mascis’ effects-laden guitars were wrapped around some of the best songwriting of the decade. The first three albums, Dinosaur, You're Living All Over Me and Bug, are now considered cult masterpieces.

Turbina
    Saturday March 17, 2012 8:00pm - 8:40pm @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    From Greg Beets, The Austin Chronicle:

    For more than 15 years, Mexico City's Intolerancia has documented the bleeding edge of progressive Latin American music. Saturday's eclectic showcase furthers that mission. Hailing from Xonacatlán, Mexico, Sonido San Francisco specializes in a techno-savvy reimagining of the traditional Latin American cumbia that combines synthesizers and accordions into fresh rhythmic bliss. Bass aficionados won't want to miss Mexico City composer Alonso Arreola, whose breakneck four-string fretwork electrifies the senses without devolving into gee-whiz thwackery. Mexico City-based prog-rock quartet Turbina bounces back and forth from start/stop paint-peelers to artful slowcore passages to psychoactive noise-pop on their ambitious three-part opus, Leti' Hum Eek' – Inda Jani – Mish Masadi. Acoustic strummer Juan Cirerol's musical background includes classical guitar and punk rock, but the Mexicali native's current sound taps elements of gritty ranch folk from both sides of the border. Medellín, Colombia's Panorama pumps a breathless mix of proto-techno and futuristic rock that's straight out of Ric Ocasek's 1979, while Bogotá, Colombia, fourpiece Planes buries its stuttering synth-folk under a pleasantly discombobulating bed of blips, bleeps, and related sundry garble.
