Andy Palmer

"So much of our lives is a roll of the die. We become saints or criminals, monks or defendants largely because of what has happened to us and around us. A lot of who we are is out of our control." Andy Palmer explains. The darkly poetic singer-songwriter explores blink-of-the-eye fate in the deeply compelling, Hazard of the Die. It’s a hauntingly beautiful storyteller album filled with intriguing characters and gorgeously moody musicality.

Piñata Protest

Punk rock like abuela used to make.

What do you get when you meld “fast/loud rules” with the Tex-Mex accordion? Piñata Protest and their invigorating and pointed “punk rock-y-roll.” The band “forcefully take the raw essence of conjunto into warp-speed tempos and punky aggression,” raves the San Antonio Current, which rates them as “one of the most original forces on the local music scene.” And now with their national debut album on Learn More

Los Pinche Gringos

The Pinche Gringos grew out of the compelling rhythms of the Texas-Mexico border: conjunto, cumbia and all their related offshoots, including the Ojinaga Sound. It is not only that the gringos who have have moved to the border during the last 30 years love the spirit of Latino music, we have found that our southern neighbors and Tejano friends also love classic rock and country. The Pinche Gringos have developed a unique synthesis between the music we heard and played as kids, and the music that…

PONG

Pong extends from the long and loud history of Ed Hall, one of Austin’s most popular post-punk bands. The band called it quits in 1996, but Pong takes the core trio of guitarist Gary Chester, bass player Larry Strub, and drummer Lyman Hardy, adds synthesizer player Shane Shelton and guitarist Jason Craig from such other Austin faves as the Pocket Fishrmen and ST-37. This makes Pong an Austin supergroup of sorts, but the hybrid band quickly developed its own distinct identity by splicing the punk…

Poor Dumb Bastards

Poor Dumb Bastards were formed in March 1991 by long time hetero life partners and musical collaborators, Mike Porterfield and Byron Dean. The initial interest was to form a band and a sound that captured the twisted and bizarre sense of humor of the two. Drawing on their collective influences and experiences from some of their earlier work, bands like Cretinoid, Plutonium Flatheads and the Byron Weird Group, Mike and Byron created a genre all their own, hence “Texas Drunk Rock” was born. The…
