Super Robot Party (Houston, TX)

I hadn’t seen Super Robot Party, but I know the guys from 10 years ago. Matt Crow was in mytwilightpilot, and there’s a definite mtp stamp on their sound, but the vocals take the band in a decidedly britpop direction, so it comes out a little like if you slowed down and then Americanized the sound of Doves. in other words, beautiful!- Jason Smith –

Super Robot Party: This new reverb-laden five piece crafts ethereal shoegaze drones, touched with tidbits of folk. The experimental mixture sounds a lot like someone’s garage in 1991, heck even a blend of several garages on the street, full of kids and guitars. The Pasadena group has nearly three dozen tracks available on Soundcloud, or for the full experience, catch them tonight at Dean’s with Jealous Creatures and A Sundae Drive.-Marc Brubaker – The Houston Press

Cornish Game Hen (Houston, TX)

Cornish Game Hen: Houston's premier post -punk, power metal, alt country, neo folk, dub step, chillwave, minimal/dark wave band. You figure it out.

The Escatones (Houston,TX)

The Escatones are a 3 piece rock and roll band. Formed in the summer of 2010 in Galveston, TX, they play a blend of psychedelic surf garage punk country folk rock and roll. Connor Purcell (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Bass/Keys) meet JT Popiel (Bass/Guitar/Keys) during the winter of 2009 while jamming at a friend’s house. Connor had already had a band going known as the Jimson Jolly Vagrants. After playing a few shows under that name they decided to start fresh with a new name and new material.

The name comes from the word eschatology, which is the study of the end of times. Combine that with tones and you got yourself a 60′s sounding garage/surf name. Influenced by The Butthole Surfers, The Judy’s, 13th Floor Elevators, The Byrds, Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Stooges, The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth, Prince, and just about everything else they try to not get stuck in one genre of music. 2011 was a busy year for them. They self released a spilt EP with fellow Houston rockers Darwin’s Finches called Owls in the Headlights of the Sulfur Digging Bulldozer. Released two full length live albums called Live from High Island and The Ghost of High Island, also a live album, on Houston label Homeskool Recordz. Relocating to Oklahoma for half the year after a disaster transport tour they were able to rock 55 shows
throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Louisana.

They are looking to end the last year on Earth with a bang. They are getting to release a 7″ under Artificial Head Records and are currently recording their first full length studio album. Oh and they are fat and hairy and when they come to your town you might see more of them then you want to.
