Punctuated with heavy transitions that swell and fall with heavy guitar distortion, Brownsville’s Oh Broken Remedy are experts at composing epic movements of emotive, introspective songs. On the title track off their 2014 release Beggars, the singer’s voice is reminiscent of that familiar yearning tone heard from vocalists like...

Local Post-punkers The Ghost In The Machine to Release debut LP

Posted By on Fri, Jul 21, 2017 at 5:00 AM

Take some Joy Division and stir until frothy. Add a pinch (perhaps two, fuck it) of Velvet Underground and a dangerous dash of The Strokes. Combine with a fuzzy and patient take on post-punk and some lo-fi, mid-aughts indie pop for good measure. Bake (or rather: get baked) and enjoy....

Putting In Work: Elena Lopez's Journey to Elnuh

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2017 at 6:20 AM

Without even realizing it, I think audiences forget the time and effort a lot of our local SA musicians invest into the honing of their craft – as if the songs coming out of the speakers at any show on the St. Mary’s Strip didn’t require work, beer money, structure...

Indie Rockers St. Dukes to Release Debut EP

Posted By on Wed, Jul 19, 2017 at 5:45 AM

Without implying that it’s wholly derivative at all (because it’s not), young, talented, and local indie rock outfit St. Dukes reminds me a bit of Sunset Rubdown, the delirious and excellent side-project of Wolf Parade frontman Spencer Krug. There’s a delicate thread of chaos running through Inez Escobar Jr’s...
