Click-Clack
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 8:00pm - 8:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    Eric Mikulak, also known as Click-Clack, is a 21 year old self produced hip-hop and r&b vocalist. Growing up in Austin, Texas, Eric was exposed to and submerged in all different styles of music from an early age. As years passed listening became an obsession and eventually was no longer satisfactory. At the age of 12 he began experimenting with beat production and vocal sampling. Soon after, the age of Macintosh arose, and garage band swiftly became the apple of his eye. As producing beats and recording ate in to his study time, it quickly transitioned from a hobby into an infatuation. At 17, Click-Clack attended Mediatech Institute of Recording Arts and began working with professional producing/recording tools. Presently, he uses a combination of Reason, Recycle and Protools and is entirely self sufficient is his creation process. Eric's driving beats provide the canvas for his emotional, opinionated lyrics. As the front man for several local bands, he has performed at many of Austin's most renown venues, including Stubb’s, The Mohawk, and The Parish. Now hitting the stage solo, his energy and stage presence combine to create a intense experience for viewers and listeners. GET YOU SUM.

Marmalakes
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 10:00pm - 10:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    Doug Freeman, The Austin Chronicle:

    Amid the nascent pop scene emerging in Austin over the past few years, Marmalakes has found its music at an ideal intersection, balancing exuberant live shows and contemplative, intelligent songwriting. The local trio of Chase Weinacht, Josh Halpern, and Max Colonna, all in their early 20s, delivers folk pop with both a youthful restlessness and eye for detail.

    "We're certainly surrounded by an energetic and enthusiastic group of creative folks," offers Weinacht. "As far as impressions, I honestly don't believe that anyone in our community of bands would say their No. 1 goal is 'I want to be famous.' I think the general feeling of all these folks is 'Let's make the best music we know how to make.'

    "These bands – Mother Falcon, Little Lo, Hello Wheels, the Sour Notes – we're all playing with pop structures unabashedly. We're all working hard. As far as how Marmalakes fit it into it musically, I think we're wordier than most."

    That focus on the live experience and investment in nurturing a scene has helped build an impressive community of both musical collaboration and fans, capped lastmonth at the Mohawk with Marmalakes' split 7-inch release with fellow locals the Sour Notes. With an eye toward releasing its third EP in April, Marmalakes continues to hone its sound, building on 2010's impressive debut Wonder Winds and last year's more adventurous arrangements of Even Clothed.

    "The reason our second EP is a bit more exploratory is because we had a better idea of what it means to put together a record," Weinacht surmises. "Since we'd been a live-oriented band for a good while, with Wonder Winds we wanted to try to present our live energy while at the same time keeping it interesting enough for some replay value.

    "With Even Clothed, we were able to play around a bit more. I think we felt more adapted to the studio environment altogether, and due to the opportunities we've been given to play lots of different kinds of shows, we've made a handful of different arrangements of each song, and with the Even Clothed version we felt we had to be definitive."

Lex Land
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 11:00pm - 11:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    • When you think “singer songwriter,” fierce is not a word that often comes to mind. But there is something slightly fierce about the opening seconds of Lex Land’s new album “Were My Sweetheart To Go”. It’s the track “Oh My!” and it just reaches out and grabs you, then descends into a sweet sing song chorus complete with a chipper hand clap beat. Music Director Jason Bentley is a big fan, saying he likes that you can hear her operatic training, her focus before pursuing a life of pop. “She’s a great songwriter. She makes herself very vulnerable and her lyrics are revealing about relationships and all those universal themes we love.” “She really separates herself from the pack with her demeanor and her lyrics. She’s got attitude, she’s cool.”

Kissy Sell Out
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 10:00pm - 11:00pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)
    Whether Kissy Sell Out is DJing to a packed out crowd, mixing avant garde new sounds on his weekly Radio One radio show, producing his own material or remixing for others, the results are always the same: Exhilarating. In the talent rich genre of electro, one name has always stood out as more forward thinking than the rest. Colchester-native Kissy Sell Out first exploded on to the scene with a series of technically ambitious remixes in 2006. His rework of Mark Ronson’s take on The Smith’s ‘Stop Me’, gained him particular kudos and was included in numerous compilations. It was enough to bring him to the attention of radio bosses, who offered the twenty-something design student a weekly slot on Radio One. Now over one hundred shows in, he has used it as an opportunity to showcase his own technical abilities, presenting a new Kissy Klub mix each week, a section of the show made entirely of his exclusive remixes made especially for that week. Along with his fresh attitude to mixing records, his amiable persona continues to draw thousands upon thousands of new listeners to his late night slot week on week. Fans not only want to hear what at Kissy has made, but also what he has found; he is a champion of new talent, and regularly plays tracks sent to him by bedroom producers along with tracks from more established artists and record labels.

Bass Drum of Death
    Thursday March 15, 2012 9:00pm - 9:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    Bass Drum of Death is a band from Mississippi. John plays guitar and sings and Colin plays the drums. Together they make blown-out, blazing songs. John was Fat Possum’s worst employee 3 years ago. He wrote and recorded the whole record himself using just a drumset, a guitar, a usb microphone, a computer, and a shitload of talent. The songs are about drugs, trying to make it with religious girls, panic attacks, stealing stuff, mild to severe depression, Elvis appearing in your dreams and giving you advice, gravity bongs and the devil living inside your brain. This record is the soundtrack playing in your head when you’re fucked up and walking home in the middle of the night.

Two Gallants
    Thursday March 15, 2012 10:00pm - 10:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    After a two and a half year break, the San Francisco guitar-drum duo TWO GALLANTS began touring again which took them across North America, through Europe and even to East Asia for their first ever shows in South Korea and China. The well needed time off came after 6 years of incessant touring and the release of 3 full length studio albums and an acoustic EP. The band consists of childhood friends Tyson Vogel and Adam Stephens who met on their elementary school playground at the age of 5. Despite an initial disagreement and ensuing scuffle over the supremacy of White Lion vs. White Snake, the two have been best friends ever since. They have been playing music together in some capacity since 1994, when their parents made the mistake of giving them both electric guitars for Christmas. Around 2002, the two college dropouts found themselves with some time on their hands and silence to kill; and so with an acoustic guitar and a trap set they formed TWO GALLANTS in the basement of the Vogel residence. In an ongoing unspoken competition to out do one another, the intervening years have seen the two-piece increase their volume and gear ten-fold. The bands' sound is somewhat of a syncretism of American old-timey roots music with the grunge and east bay punk of Tyson and Adam's formative years. In the two years since, both have released solo material under The Devotionals and Adam Haworth Stephens, respectively. Now with a new batch of songs in hand TWO GALLANTS are getting back to the haranguing strident noise that fuelled them across the world and a new album is in the works.

Clock Opera
    Friday March 16, 2012 9:45pm - 10:25pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)
    Clock Opera, I remember thinking, have this wonderful tendency to sound like their music combines real memories and made up memories, strong memories and shredded memories, and some sense of the mental and physical reality of a classic surprising pop song. They begin a piece of music with exquisite care and end it, just like that, with battle commencing in between, and a dynamic round the bend sense of time. Sound like a group I never remember hearing who decided to imagine what would happen if they sounded like an original pop group whose members consisted of Steve Reich, Scott Walker, Peter Gabriel, Flo and Eddie and To Rococo Rot. That good.

Soft Metals
    Saturday March 17, 2012 10:00pm - 10:40pm @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    Soft Metals is a multi-disciplinary electronic duo from Portland, Oregon now residing in Los Angeles, California. Its members Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall were brought together through a common love of 1970s and 80s synthesizer music and began writing and recording songs together in the spring of 2009. Inspiration came to them by way of experimental electronic sounds, film soundtracks, early industrial music, minimal synth, house, techno, synth pop, krautrock, psychedelic rock, and shoegaze. Ian and Patricia share songwriting duties and compose the music together before writing lyrics and adding vocals. Their songs are built from moody, improvised sessions together using exclusively electronic instruments. The meaning of the raw music they make is explored and interpreted afterwards with lyrical themes ranging from life experience, films, literature, history, science, love, conflict, and death. Soft Metals prefer to express themselves freely rather than adhere to a particular genre. This freedom gives them a diverse sound somewhere between dance music, austere synthetic pop, and experimental electronic composition. Their two best known songs, "The Cold World Melts" and "Psychic Driving" are demonstrations of this varied sound. "The Cold World Melts" is driving, assertive, and passionate. "Psychic Driving" is delicate, introverted, and vulnerable. Some of their songs remain in their unpolished improvised form to pay homage to authenticity, spontaneity, the joy of sound, and experimentation while others are studio based exercises, fusing new and old production technologies.

Craft Spells
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ The Parish (214 E Sixth St Austin, TX)

    In the cold and dreary winter of 2009, alone in his bedroom and hidden from the darkness of the world outside Justin Paul Vallesteros had begun working on something that would change his life forever. What began as a couple notes played in experimentation soon transformed into vibrant melodies that soon shook Vallesteros' musical foundation to the core. Guitar chords laced over pulse sating synth melodies and drum rhythms was a departure from Justin's previous work; he began to create the dreamy nostalgic pop music that is Craft Spells. Joined by Jack Smith (bass), Javier Suarez (lead guitar) and Peter Michel (drums), they recently returned from a European tour and plan on releasing a new ep February 2012.
