Exclusive Austin Deli Premiere: Blood Pumps release 'Long Gossip' off new EP

Blood Pumps comfortably blends smart song craft with interesting, accessible angularity; subtle counter points rhythmically and melodically with intelligent, almost-too-smart-for-pop lyricism delivered with Bill Stevenson's elastic tenor. The marriage of Black Joe Lewis' gut bucket guitar with Mike Brinley's dry-cleaned guitar stands in direct contrast to the washed out reverb and effects heavy sound of many contemporaries in the rock'n'roll scene. All of these ingredients and brush strokes are tied together by an analog beat machine that Stevenson used to record material in between tours of his normal gig backing up Joe.

The five songs on Blood Pump's EP display the prowess of three individuals applying themselves outside their comfort zone. Their new release,"Long Gossip", comes out in a stratling cacophany then cracks into a mid-tempo 3/4 groove then slyly resets int a 4/4 groove right as the guitar's quick-cat-lash vertical intro lines delve into Ric Ocasek territory.

The Two Lips serve up garage rock vibes on latest single "Repeat"

What if you spun your dial to the left and accidentally picked up a radio transmission from Mars? I'd like to think it'd sound something like The Two Lip's latest release "Repeat," a blitzed out garage rock track whose screeching opening sounds like it was snatched from a 1950's outer-space B-movie. Despite the extraterrestrial leanings, the Austin-based three piece's music is definitely of this earth--grounded primarily by heavy, fuzzy guitar riffs that cut the listener down with a visceral force. Though the track deals in garage hooks, the band blends in strong psych rock elements keeping things weird and oddly compelling. If music for funky martians is maybe your thing, check out "Repeat" streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

The Novella unveils Sci Fi video for 'Heavy Balloon' + announces new album

This super fun video by The Novella for single "Heavy Balloon" caught our attention today. Somewhat disavowing their own name, the Austin based pop quartet looks for visual inspiration in the cheesy Sci Fi movies of the '70s. The song strikes a perfect balance between catchiness and sophistication, in a vein not too dissimilar from Camera Obscura's most memorable singles. The song will be included in their upcoming album House of Souls out 9/23.
