Hot Band Alert: Vinyl Williams – Lemniscate – Album Review

Hot Band Alert: Vinyl Williams – Lemniscate – Album Review While the Los Angels-based Viny Williams, led by the 22-year-old Lionel Williams, offer some trippy motives — I prefer to let the sound speak for itself. Falling into the shoegaze and psyche pop genres, Vinyl Williams carves out a much more primal niche with their debut […]

Hot Band Alert: Check Out Reptar at the Echoplex – Sept. 23, 2012

Hot Band Alert: Gary Clark Jr. (Playing It’s A School Night at Bardot on Jan. 24)

A couple moths ago while surfing the Internets I came across a real gem: Gary Clark Jr. Native to Austin, he sounds a whole lot like the almighty Dan Auerbach, but with a lil more soul and flair. For fans of the early Black Keys, Clark exudes all that raw, foot-stompin’ rock and blues that […]
