The Black And White Years
2012 NPR Band to Watch and SXSW veterans, The Black And White Years, will be showcasing their latest release “Strange Figurines”. Discovered by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads, these Austin Natives have crafted their own blend of art rock.
Tele Novella is a fresh strain of sugar-crash dream-psych popsicle punch out of Austin, TX with members of Agent Ribbons and Voxtrot.
“…Influenced by equal parts Nancy Sinatra and The Virgin Suicides, combining classic ’60s rhythms with macabre undertones.” -SPIN
“If the Austin-based band Tele Novella isn’t on your radar yet, it should be.” -USA TODAY
“The group is pretty sensational, creating some of the best pop music to come out of city, and dare I say, the world as a whole.” Austin Town Hall
Nic Armstrong & The Thieves
“Jumping out of the speakers…Nic Armstrong brings the fuzz and bubblegum in spades…the songwriting is so strong…A welcome castaway”
– Paste Magazine
“Noel Gallagher became a fan and invited [on tours with] Oasis…toured Europe and the UK with Paul Weller…did several weeks with the Pretenders, catching the ear of Rolling Stone’s David Fricke.”
– Christopher Gray, Austin Chronicle
“Check him out: It’s no lie…
his debut album… is great”
– David Fricke, Rolling Stone
