WEEK END ROUND UP: 7/25 - 7/31 July 31 2015, 0 Comments

  • FIRST THING’S FIRST. We’re super stoked to announce Faux Ferocious as the next band in our cassette series, curated by Pizza Casey. FF has been one of our favorite bands in town for years now and despite their name they’re truly ferocious. Get the scoop & listen to “Nowhere to Go” on the Nashville Cream!!
  • Noisey called JEFF the “gnarly ringleaders” of the “New Nashville” (read: non-country) scene. They also called DP “one of the best rock bands to come out of the city— and arguably the rowdiest.” No arguments here! Check out the rest of their scene report here.
  • That Ed Schrader keeps popping up with new talents. The first episode of his new cartoon “A Family Affair” (starring David Bowie as your bum neighbor” debuted on Adult Swim last week and it’s just as crazy and great as you’re imagining. Watch the absurdity over here.
  • The dads behind USA Today’s Dad Rock podcast interviewed DP at Forecastle and returned with the greatest name-origin story yet. Listen to that here!
  • Speaking of Forecastle, both JEFF and DP made Consequence of Sound’s Top 10 Sets list!! Check out the rest here.

  • The Cathouse is slowly turning into a jungle thanks to Amanda Leadman and her “Jungle Cat” art exhibit, debuting tomorrow night during the Wedgewood/Houston Art Crawl. Join us for art, friendship, alcohol, cheetos, and more!
  • Hits from the Street alums Fox Fun dropped a new track from their upcoming OSR Tapes release and it’s brilliant. Stream “Mystery Bones” on Unruly Factions now, gotta wait til January for that tape though!
  • JEFF made a killer road trip mix for Ford, which you can read about here and stream on Spotify. WARNING: Things get FUNKY.
  • Jake also did this great interview with The Seventh Hex in which he mostly talks about how much JTB loves wine and synthesizers. Respect. Read that here!
  • We leave you with these amazing stock photos from SXSW. Recording Artists Music Band living that Gevalia life!!
