Wonderbitch (Austin, TX)

Wonderbitch harnesses the transportive power of rock to take listeners on sophisticated flights of fancy. Citing psychedelic and 80s pop influence on their sound, they enchant with the visual aspects of their intriguing music videos and spirited live performances.

Traces of Bowie, Steely Dan, and Talking Heads decorate their tunes. Lyrically, their offerings wax New Age, yet the sound is mixed in the charred, weirder edges of alternative. Their whimsical songs explore starkly rendered feelings and subjects that allow them to resonate with an introspective but universal vibe.

Wonderbitch currently writes, records and performs in Austin as they continue to cultivate their show into a lovingly explosive and enveloping experience to bring to stages large and medium.

“SXSW ended at the Austin Roller Rink, a suburban venue that became Saturday night’s most fun after-hours spot. [...] Wonderbitch soundtracked some great moves and a few spectacular falls.” — Rolling Stone

“Wonderbitch has created a fascinating little hybrid for themselves, blending the sleek jazz rock of Steely Dan, the effervescent indie pop of Phoenix, along with a big, wonderfully garish helping of ‘80s R&B.”— PopMatters

Ganesha (Houston, TX)

“This band from Houston, Texas has nailed the lost art of 90’s alternative rock and sprinkled it with a littler flavor of classic rock. Ricky Dee brings brings out a noisy tone from his guitar and sings in a mixture of their influences. Noe Kimes has excellent fills pouring out of his bass which many bassists don’t succeed in. Sammy Reyna bring a very tight and organic feel to the band, he is trained in afro cuban and jazz rhythms so playing this type of rock&roll is a very enjoyable experience for him. On their Reverbnation account there’s a song Three, Listen to it to understand how amazing the drummer really is. “Brief Conclusions” has a strong “Velvet Underground” influence especially in the laid back vocal melody sung in the style of Lou Reed. “Wake Up” is a noisy Mudhoney inspired jam. The song is layered completely with a loud fuzzy bass. “Kocaine” starts with a subtle bass line and then it’s thrown into a fast current of a wild river. There’s a solo that might melt your ears. “That Day Long” is a really catchy 80’s punk rock like gem. The vocals are sung in a “Hendrix” manner. The bassist really shines on this track. “Downer” has found a way to pay tribute to their influence and make original music at the same time. They don’t fall pray into sounding like a copycat band. If you feel nostalgic of the rock music of the 90’s this is the band to check out. “~The Musical Junkie~
