Ringo Deathstarr
Ringo Deathstarr
Ringo Deathstarr were originally formed in 2005 by singer and guitarist Elliott Frazier in his hometown of Beaumont, TX, but after moving to the more musically happening climes of Austin, he stabilized a final lineup with guitarist Renan McFarland, bassist Alex Gehring, and drummer Dustin Gaudet. Ringo Deathstarr's self-titled debut, a five-song EP, was released by the British label SVC Records in the fall of 2007. After a few more years of playing shows, shuffling members before settling on Gehring and drummer Daniel Coborn, and honing their sound, the band was signed by the U.K. label AC30 after making a big splash at their Reverence festival in 2010. The band's first album, Colour Trip, was released by AC30 in the winter of 2010, then was licensed by Sonic Unyon for release in Canada.
The Bad Signs
What's love without a little camp? That's what bands like Nashville country-garage outfit The Bad Signs are for. The trio's Black Magic Moments EP pays tribute to 60s fringe culture with oozy steel guitars and singer Samantha Harlow's noir purr, knocking around in the seediness and hyperbole of love's darker corners.
Hazy soundscapes, ringing guitar, icy synth, feather-light vocals, and actual compelling tunes, Lightfoils use Hierarchy to serve notice: their EP was no fluke, and they will no longer be ignored. If you’re new to Lightfoils, drop the needle on “Diastolic”, “Last One”, or the strangely compelling “alovetodestroy” and you’ll begin to understand what all the fuss is about. But there’s more than just three tracks to this album. Once you get inside, it’s a beautifully rich and textured world to explore.
