Lomelda (Waco, TX)

Lomelda is an art rock band from Waco, TX. Their sound features strong female vocals, loose spacey guitars, and intricate emotional percussion. Lead by the songwriting of Hannah Read, the group creates music that is both accessible and exploratory, nostalgic and challenging. Read’s simple guitar stylings range from mellow, woody rhythmic patterns to heavy droning textures, while the dynamic drumming of Zach Daniel adds weight to the subtleties of the songs.

Their live show lifts and lowers and invites you to lean in close. Feel something. Be patient. Get together. Take a heavy breath. Remember when you found a photo of your grandpa, your dad’s dad, the one you never met. He leans against the doorframe of the family cabin deep in the piney woods, a camera hanging around his neck, waiting to capture the kids’ model rocket launch but instead being captured himself, all denim and swagger at age 36, a year before his death. It’s gone — all of it. But you can still hold it in your hand. Or tear it up or burn it. Or frame it.

It’s nostalgic, heavy, and personal.
It’s pop­sensitive, soul drone, sentimental space rock.

Golden Sombrero (Houston, TX)

"These recent Houston transplants make really really smart bar rock& roll with hints of honky tonk, classic rock bombast and ground zero NYC art-punk." - B/CS Loud!Fest

Golden Sombrero originally formed during the summer of 2012 in Bryan/College Station as a new collaboration between members of other area bands such as Mike The Engineer, Pearl Light Specials, and The Ex-Optimists. From the beginning it has been a songwriter based project to make good tunes in loud garage rock setting. Original influences of the band included Deer Tick, The Replacements, and Neil Young’s work with Crazy Horse.

In 2013 the majority of the band moved to Houston and its sound further transformed. Bands like Superchunk, Love as Laughter, and Television started to influence the newer material, and country-rock vibes gave a bit of ground to pop hooks. The lineup went down to a 3-piece and then back to its original 4-piece, two guitar setup, but throughout the band has always been populated by friends.
