Being Dead Blesses the Family "Apostle's Prom"

 Juli Kellerand and Cody Dosier would like you to think that they've let Satan into their heart, but the the truth is much darker - they're conducting LSD-fueled experiments of friendship and musicianship under the guise of Being Dead. The early experimental data is showing a synergistic reaction that has led to the emission of druggy psych rock and hazed surf punk vapors, that are highly addictive. Idolatry, horses, twerking and medieval weaponry are themes that all flow seamlessly into the duo's video for "Apostle's Prom" which is a corrosive agent on the minds of our youth - but a positive delight for those already sporting a warped world view. The duo has released a new EP on Austin Town Hall records and will be playing on April 20th at Hole in the Wall with Duncan Fellows, The Oysters, Magic Rockers of Texas and Hi, Gene.

Parcels Push the Envelope on Disco Hooks

 Aussies, Austinites, and enough funk bass lines to light up Studio 54 in its prime,  Parcels brought peak positivity to the Mohawk on Monday night. Daft Punk-produced and brimming with youthful exuberance, Parcels is riding a wave of musical momentum on their first American tour. The Aussie male quintet’s sound emanates from around a core sample of Beegees and KC and the Sunshine band melodies with the effervescence of contemporary synthpop and nu-disco. A cappella harmonies, great hair and a synthesized audio elixir guaranteed to make audiences dance – Parcels brought the goods from down under.

Getting the ball rolling with the slow-build of “Comedown”, Parcels introduced themselves to the crowd, and then promptly launched into the Chic-esque hit “Lightenup”. Patrick Hetherington and Jules Crommelin sat front and center onstage, orchestrating boyish smiles and head nods while crooning with soulful dexterity. “Gamesofluck” dropped suave synths over a disco-laden sea of funk with catchy vocals that accentuated the groove masterpiece.

A mid-set a cappella rendition of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” unveiled the remarkable singing talents of the entire quintet before getting back to the dance electronica at hand. “Tieduprightnow” brought chucking guitars and jazz flutes into a tropical nirvana that had the audience twisting like Uma in Pulp Fiction, while “Everyroad” took its time to build through spoken word and rising harmonies for an orgasmic pinnacle of the Italo-disco variety.

Even during some of the more introspective tracks, the Mohawk audience was vibing along, giving the band spontaneous applause and involuntary hand claps. The sheepish grins of the quintet and genuine surprise on hearing roars of approval, exposed a band that had yet to be calloused over with expectation and road weariness.  Ending the night with their discovery song “Overnight” along with “Iknowhowifeel” and “Withorwithout” left a ravenous audience standing around for more music, long after the band had left the stage.

Vision Arcade Lay Down Southern Feel-Good Rock Riffs

 A psych inspired quartet that doesn't mind embracing a Southern styled grit, Vision Arcade channels a blend of Audioslave, the Black Keys and Rival Sons. The young rock group has already scored shows at venues such as the Mohawk, Come and Take It Live!, and Emos but the release of their debut single "Afterglow", soon to be accompanied by a music video, will continue to raise their profile. The band purveys 70's influenced alt-rock with bluesy undertones and the four piece consisting of Max Robison, Rory Kendall, Connor Torres and Evan Brock are on a steady track to a larger fan base.
