Runaway Brother - Conscience in Tumult

| Keith

New Pocket from Cleveland's Runaway Brother is another fantastic release from the amazing Tiny Engines. I've been jamming it non-stop for a week now and can safely say it's an early favorite for 2018's best. If you give a casual listen, I'm pretty sure you'll easily understand why they're often compared to Built To Spill. Listen deeper and you'll see songs builds on each other and a lot of inventive, eclectic rock packed into each track. Ok, yeah, kind of like Built To Spill. :)

Upcoming Shows

Frank Turner - 1933

| Keith

Frank Turner is back with another happy-sounding, thought-provoking protest anthem. This one inspired by anger and frustration around the "the idea that Breitbart or Steve Bannon think they have anything to do with punk rock..."

He's coming to Austin for SXSW and then back again in June and I can't wait to be there singing along.

RIYL: Brian Fallon, Dave Hause, Hot Water Music, The Smith Street Band, Skinny Lister

Upcoming Shows

She-Devils - The World Laughs

| Kerri

Montreal duo She-Devils have a dreamy, U.S. 60's psychedelic-meets-80's U.K. shoegaze that is perfectly mid-oughts indie. I was hoping they'd pop up at SXSW but they're not on any official lists I've seen. Still, a lot of the states (and some of their native Cananda) can catch them on tour this spring. 

RIYL: Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls, Bleached, Slowdive
