Tonight, the Mohawk will be graced by Kingdom of Suicide Lovers + Videoing (album release) + A Tiger Named Lovesick + The Diamond Age + and tunes from DJ Richard Henry. Look- here’s PROOF! Admission includes a KILLER CD with 10 tracks from the artists for FREE! PartyEnds has partnered with SlackElectric to spread the aural pleasures of these fine artists. Just like you dear reader- we’re always on the prowl for something ear catching to jam out to and these artists get the stamp of approval for being the newest in new, waxingist and milkingist performers around.
The CD, just like the show tonight, features:
Kingdom of Suicide Lovers- This Austin super post-punk group features a dude from Glorium, and two folks from Faceless Werewolves. Their garaged out tunes have been on another complication for some label called “Matador” that people seem to like. Be sure to pick up their 7inch at the show or at a local record store near you or else you run the risk of being a real jerk! The FREE comp that’s at the show tonight features some material from their forthcoming record!
Videoing- From the ashes of Single Frame comes Videoing, and tonight is the first night you can hold their record in your mitts. This arty Austin group has got smarts and I’m so excited that they are starting to play out more and more. Anytime a drummer can sing at the same time it’s impressive. But I’m not talking background vocals or the occasional contribution to a simple harmony- I’m talking full-on fronting a band while playing the weirdest time signatures out there. Videoing puppetmaster Adreon Henry makes audiences stop sipping Lonestars and say aloud in unison “NO WAY! HAVE MERCY!” The beats and vocals created by Henry are are aided by the piercing guitar work of Brendan Reilly and the dark fantasy keyboards/tart tart female vocals of Jen Bradley.
A Tiger Named Lovesick- This group is an Austin institution that’s been together longer than most marriages last. They never fail to astound me with their super tripped brand of out shoegaze. Get to know their giant wall of spacey sound if you don’t already!
The Diamond Age- Venturing down from Dallas, The Diamond Age sounds, tastes and smells scratchy and warm like a wool sweater…oh wait- since it’s summer in Texas, let’s roll with the simile a wool bathing suit. Looping organic sounds over and over and adding droning guitar effects makes for lovely tracks criss crossed with levels and loaded with textures that deliver an 8-armed one-man-band rockin’ good time.
Pick up the free CD sampler tonight at the Mohawk and play it for all your best amigos!
Long live physical media.
