Yeast By Sweet Beast
    Sunday March 11, 2012 9:30pm - 2:00am @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)

    Yeast by Sweet Beast 2012, presented by Anne Heller of Aurora Plastics Company and Church of the Friendly Ghost, is a three-day experimental improvisation and outsider music festival, now in its 12th year. Poet, musician and filmmaker Anne Heller (of the experimental improv band Aurora Plastics Company) began the fest in the year 2000 to celebrate still being alive and to return a bit of happiness to the community by creating a manifestation of “flying the freak flag.” She organizes and funds the fest herself, paying the performing bands equally from the profits, if any. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s legendary “Exploding Plastic Inevitable” happenings, this showcase of up-and-coming tonal artists is accompanied by the film installations of video artist Paul Baker and others, creating a hypnotic ambiance throughout. 

    Experimental improvisational music is “art for art’s sake,” creation as a means of intense personal expression. The bands featured in Yeast by Sweet Beast are all experienced improvisers who feel comfortable and relish the magic which is creativity in the moment. Many also perform in other musical genres. Each band gets a 30-minute set with 8 or 9 bands performing each night of the fest.


    Yeast by Sweet Beast 2012 will feature Louisville, Kentucky’s Bosco Stravinsky and Houston’s Future Blondes, as well as such Austin-based experimental stalwarts as ST-37, Plutonium Farmers, Attic Ted, Book of Shadows and organic-electric soundtrack conjurers Aurora Plastics Company. Paul Baker of Sub Oslo and others will visually accompany the musical performances, in traditional Yeast by Sweet Beast fashion.

Union Specific
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 9:00pm - 9:40pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)
    Union Specific began in the summer of 2008 in Sherman TX,
    where singers/songwriters Tyler Wallace and Gregg Maher
    attended Austin College, a small liberal arts university. The two
    had long known of each other's songwriting endeavors, but they would not begin making music together until late in their junior year, when Tyler approached Gregg to play with him in a talent show. The two soon realized that they had a palpable combination when they put their talents together. What came out was a medley of hard driving roots country mixed with thoughtful indie melodies, a combination resulting in bona fide Americana. The boys got together a group of friends and were soon playing every dive in North Texas. The joints were rough, but, through these experiences, the two developed a love for the informality of the grungy, smoke-filled venues and wished to incorporate that into their sound as well as their live show.

Ian Moore and the Lossy Coils
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 10:00pm - 10:50pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)

    Ian Moore is a singer/guitarist/songwriter who has released 10 full length records. He has opened for the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul Weller, and countless others. He has appeared in films such as Billy Bob Thorton's movie Slingblade, and crisscrossed the world many times in support of his releases. In the last years he has also moonlit as a sideman for artists as diverse Jason Mraz and Roky Erickson, while starting a company, Madrona music, that focuses on film scoring.
    Ian's music is rare in its scope and diversity, and he has reinvented himself with every release.
    Well known in his early years for his fiery, bluesy guitar playing, and soulful singing, he was anointed at a young age as an Austin legend
    His inquisitive and ambitious spirit has led him to greatly eclipse the songwriting and musical latitude of his early release.
    His latest release, El Sonido, Nuevo, finds him digging deeper into the realms of power pop/psych rock, while maintaining his core musical values. 'El Sonido' is a collaborative release, written with Matt Harris(Posies, Oranger) and the music reflects their collective musical visions. The current show is visceral, tight, laden with harmony and taut musical arrangement. Guitar is featured, but borrowing equally from the likes of Richard Thompson and Tom Verlaine, and the songs borrow but never steal. The music doesn't surf the wave of desperate modern trends, but swims freely beyond the waves, imbued with the music of deep record collections, but maintaining a musical vision of now

The Mastersons
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 10:00pm - 10:40pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)
    The Mastersons.
    Husband and wife, singing and playing together.
    And they’re each deft instrumentalists, and they’ve spent years playing in others’ bands before coming together as a unit. They’re bound by music and an uncommon depth of companionship, they’re good enough to make Steve Earle swoon, and all of that sounds quite nice.
    Until 16 and a half seconds into track one, when Eleanor Whitmore begins singing, “The twitch in my left eye came back today.”
    “Yeah, we’re not exactly gazing lovingly at each other while we’re playing these songs,” says guitarist Chris Masterson. “Sometimes the ‘couple’ thing can seem a bit schmaltzy. We’re more a band than a duo, and we’re not going to be George and Tammy. We might not even be John and Exene.”
    That’s not to say that these folks don’t love each other, or that they aren’t of a piece. It’s just that listening to The Mastersons - either live or on their immediately engaging, musically expansive debut album, Birds Fly South (due out April 10 on New West Records) - isn’t akin to eavesdropping on two soulmates’ impossibly intimate conversation. This is more fun than that, with bright melodies that lead to dark lyrics, inventive harmonies and enough sparkle and twang to fashion a Porter Wagoner suit. Together, Whitmore (who plays guitar, violin, mandolin and most anything else with strings) and Masterson arrive at a singular blend that Emmylou Harris speaks of as “the third voice,” one distinct from its individual elements.
    “Eleanor on her own has a beautiful voice, far better than mine,” Masterson says. “But when we come together, something bigger happens.”
    That “something bigger” is captured in full on Birds Fly South, an album with soul and groove and teeth and not an ounce of schmaltz. Like the Jayhawks or Buddy & Julie Miller, it exists in an expansive territory that encompasses rock, pop, blues and country, but this is not an “If you like x, then you’ll like y” kind of record. It’s an unexpected and frequently astonishing melding of sensibilities, from two unique yet perfectly-matched artists.
    Both the Denton, Texas-born Whitmore and Houston-reared Masterson have been musicians for as long as they can recall. Whitmore’s parents were both musicians, her mother an opera singer and her dad a folksinger who piloted Delta airplanes for a living. She began playing fiddle at age four, and she and sister Bonnie (now a touring songwriter) played in the family band as kids, and she studied fiddle with Texas swing master Johnny Gimble. Masterson was playing searing blues in Houston clubs at age 13, and he spent his adolescence as a disciple of blues greats Big Walter Price and T- Bone Walker.
    “We were both doomed from the start,” Whitmore laughs. “Actually, we were lucky. It’s rare to have supportive parents that believed and expected we would play music and be successful. Most people that have a passion for music aren’t that fortunate.”
    Whitmore and Masterson apprenticed for years with other musicians, she with Regina Spektor, Susan Gibson, Kelly Willis, Diana Ross, Will Hoge and others, he in the bands of Jack Ingram, Son Volt, Bobby Bare Jr. and more. They met in 2005 and each
    released solo debuts (hers was 2008’s Airplanes and his was an EP called The Late Great Chris Masterson), but found themselves compelled to write and sing together. “It all started coming together organically,” Whitmore says. “And the songs started to sound like a band, not like a song swap.”
    To capture that sound, The Mastersons headed from their Brooklyn home back down to Texas, where they worked with a core group of close friends (Grammy-winning engineer Steve Chrisensen, bass man George Reiff and drummer Falcon Valdez) to co-produce Birds Fly South. To capture the harmonies, Whitmore and Masterson sang together, into one microphone. That didn’t mean the proceedings were free from arguments or eye- twitching.
    “It’s weird working with someone you love,” Masterson says. “The highs are higher, and the lows are lower. The way Eleanor and I treat each other, you’d never treat someone else on a session or gig. There’s a candor there that’s insane sometimes, and we both believe in what we’re doing so much and neither is willing to back down.”
    With the album complete, Whitmore and Masterson headed back to New York, and in May of 2011 they joined Earle’s group, The Dukes and Duchesses. Each night on the world tour, Earle moved aside to let his spotlight shine on The Mastersons, whose efforts were met with reviews like “scintillating” (London’s The Telegraph). Whitmore and Masterson remain integral players in Earle’s band.
    “Playing with Steve has been so great for us,” Masterson says. “We’ve both learned so much from working with other people. We’ve learned to have something succinct to say onstage and learned a whole lot about work ethic. And we’ve learned to handle so many many different scenarios.”
    The release of Birds Fly South should provide for some more of those scenarios, though The Mastersons aren’t making any predictions.
    “I’m not in the outcomes business,” says Masterson. He and Whitmore are more concerned with the action than the consequence, more about the offering than the reception.
    Eye-twitching or no, Birds Fly South is a lovely offering. The Mastersons.
    Husband and wife, singing and playing together.
    And it sounds quite nice.
    Delightful, even.

Charlie Shafter
    Thursday March 15, 2012 8:00pm - 8:40pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)
    Sometimes you encounter a musical artist for a first time and find yourself
    experiencing a warm sense of déjà vu – not a feeling that you’ve heard it all before, but a
    feeling that you’ve reunited with a person you’ve known for ages, someone with whom
    you share a connection. That’s the vibe conjured up by Charlie Shafter, a young singer-
    songwriter with an old soul – and a knack for forging a connection with just about anyone
    who crosses paths with his songs.
    On his self-titled debut album, the 26-year-old Shafter weaves ten richly-toned
    tales that recall iconic writers such as Townes Van Zandt and Elliott Smith, songs that
    range into acoustic blues and the grittier side of country-rock on a panoramic trek through
    blue-highway Americana. Shafter doesn’t write songs that grab you by the lapel and
    shake you into listening; they’re more likely to throw an arm around you and whisper
    their way into your consciousness.

    Friday March 16, 2012 7:20pm - 7:55pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)

    Rayland Baxter is a gentleman, a singer of song, a teller of tale, a picker of strings, a thinker of things. Born in the untamed hills of Bon Aqua, Tennessee, he tells a story unlike any other, a story that is true and full of unravelling emotion. No lines drawn, no box to be found in the world of Rayland Baxter. He is who he is and he tells the unmatched story. Whether it be the story of love, the story of struggle, or the story of joy, the road that he travels is full of dust and flowers, fire and ice, comets and dreams, and he walks with stars in his eyes, leaving the scent of wild magnolias for those on his trail...for us, we are fortunate to find him at the end, smilin. Tradition is a staple in Rayland's music. In any given song, one can hear the nuances of his favorites...from Dylan to Van Zandt, Johnson to Hopkins, or anyone else on the musical map that has tickled his fancy at one time or another. His reconstruction of song is mesmerizing in its own right...a true artist...a humble man...a dreamer.

    ABOUT LARKIN POE
    (“The Band For All Seasons” by: Rebecca & Megan Lovell)
    We are sisters. We are music lovers. We are storytellers.
    Every since we were little girls, we’ve been awed by the power of a story well told: from children’s books
    and bedtime yarns to figments and fairytales. Before we were able to read, we hounded our parents for
    “more stories!” and then, when at last we could; we began hounding the bookshelves.
    Now, nearly a decade later, at 21 and 22, we’re still doing the same thing.
    We’re still on the search for stories, and striving to learn how to tell them well. Now, we not only hound
    bookshelves, but also the people surrounding us. We search for stories of human experience, of love won
    and love lost, and of the million mundane things that make up everyday life. Larkin Poe: the name of our
    great-great-great-grandfather; a man who survives in the memories and hearts of succeeding generations;
    a legend, a tall tale, a truly everlasting story. Just the thing that we hope to become.
    Our musical journey, which began for us as children playing classical violin and piano at the ages of 5 and
    6, continued through our teenage years as we toured internationally from 2005 to 2010 as The Lovell
    Sisters. This incarnation, which included our eldest sister, Jessica, took us from the stage of the Grand Ole
    Opry to wonderful summer festivals such as Bonnaroo and Telluride, and even gave us the opportunity to
    collaborate with the likes of Elvis Costello. In January 2010, after saying ‘farewell’ to The Lovell Sisters, the
    musical story of our young adulthood has begun in the form of our new band, Larkin Poe.
    Larkin Poe released its debut EP, Spring, on February 17, 2010. As a brand new band, we were looking for
    a way to bring our friends, family and fans along with us on our musical journey as we discover who we are
    as Larkin Poe. Looking for an answer – and always looking to do things in our own way – we decided to
    embark upon the quest of recording and releasing four seasonally themed EPs in 2010: Spring, Summer,
    Fall and Winter. What better way to let folks be a part of our development as a band than to record and
    release our newest experimentations every few months? After 12 months of non-stop work, all four EPs
    were successfully released in 2010 (and additionally compiled into a box-set: “The Band For All Seasons”)
    and continue to garner attention and good reviews internationally. We continue to tour extensively in Europe and across the United States and are preparing to record and release a new project in 2012.
    Come join us on our journey.

    Formed in Austin, WHEELER BROTHERS have emerged as one of the most exciting bands breaking out of Texas. The five-piece act composed of Austin natives combines the gutsy indie vibe of the modern central Texas music scene with the longing strains of time-honored Texas folk. Brothers Nolan, Tyler and Patrick Wheeler met Danny Matthews at LSU where they spent their afternoons picking guitars and swapping stories in the bar rooms of Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Once back in Austin, the group rounded out their sound with the addition of a lifelong friend, guitarist A.J. Molyneaux. Each member brings his own musical direction and ideas to the group, and through precise vocal harmonies and a unique cast of instruments. Wheeler Brothers have created a sound that has put their name in the forefront of the Austin music scene.

The Pauses
    Saturday March 17, 2012 8:00pm - 8:40pm @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)

    The Pauses' (who prefer that their possessive noun-ing be spelled Pauseses) overall sound is one anchored in complexion and combination, a world where guitars are BFFs with synthesizers, horns, bells, and ukuleles. Tierney Tough's bright, fresh voice - which fits nicely between Metric's Emily Haines and Feist - glides just as easily atop the breathy sparkle and agile math of Rock Band track "Go North" as it does the indie-pop sway and post-hardcore torque of "Beyond Bianca." From the serious, atmospheric mood of "The Migration" and "Pull the Pin" to the lithe, glitchy charm of "Hands Up," The Pauses got mad range, often in the same song. Rooted in the dynamics and ethos of '90s indie rock, their sound is a balancing act between rock and electronics, airiness and heft, suppleness and angularity. And their debut album, "A Cautionary Tale" (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines) shows that you can explore without losing your core.

    New Roman Times lays out New Wave/post-punk hooks 'On the Sleeve'. It’s got that dancebeat of Radio 4. It’s got the brooding of the Psychedelic Furs. It’s music for arming yourself against the world’s attacks on you. It’s headphone music for introverts who need to have a soundtrack to propel them forward on their mission. It’s train music even if you’re commuting in an automobile. It’s atmospheric in a way you wouldn’t expect, so that you’re waving your arms around, dancing by yourself, listening to old things like the House of Love and the Railway Children. And it’s all worth every moment of being lost inside the wonderful parade of sound.

Dignan
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Skinny's Ballroom (115 San Jacinto Blvd. Austin, TX 78701)

    Starting out as a garage band in South Texas, Dignan was formed by friends Andy Pena, and Devin Garcia who loved to play music, and loved the music they played. Dignan's sound has evolved into a powerful, dreamy, washy indie pop sound, with the help of David Palomo, and Charlie Vela. Though South Texas has never been a playground for artist spotlight, Dignan has made a national name for themselves through relentless DIY touring. Since Dignan's formation in 2007 they have been invited to SXSW 3 times, CMJ '09, Pygmalion Music Festival, Next Big Nashville twice, and have earned their place as "road warriors" playing over 700 tour dates nationwide. The band was recently invited to perform for Daytrotter.com which showcased them as Artist of the Day. Dignan has also been featured in several music magazines such as Paste, Under The Radar, Relevant, and Spin. In Texas, Dignan has been approached by booking agencies such as Windish Agency, Agency Group, Paradigm, and High Road to lend support to their touring artists such as Cursive, Twin Sister, Colour Revolt, Miniature Tigers, Cloud Nothings, Baths, Gobble Gobble, Max Bemis (Say Anything), Twin Shadow, Anathallo, Facing New York, and many more. In an industry where artists and fads come and go, Dignan has stood the test of time, and stayed true to a sound all their own. Starting to write and record for a "TBA" full length record, Dignan is excited to see what these next years have in store for them.
