Skull Practitioners

Where the genre of “psych rock” will usually refer to “psychedelic rock,” Skull Practitioners take it to a level where the meaning “psychosis rock” would be more appropriate, hurling harsh guitar tones and thumping bass haunts, along with an avalanche of drum fills, into a whirlwind of amplified delirium. The NYC trio produces a heavier and more diverse wall of sound than most five-piece bands out there, swelling and punching up and down scales and arpeggios, blasting through fuzz and decay, resulting in a bleakly intense look into a mind lost. With different vocalists featured on various tracks, it might be difficult to discern an established frontman, but does it matter? The sounds coming from Jason Victor and Ken Levine’s amps, back Alex Baker’s drums are the huge focus here. – JP Basileo

Check out Justin Sherburn's Montopolis Tonight at the North Door

 Justin Sherburn's compositions sound like incomplete stories; with enough detail to imagine a landscape, the pieces are tactfully designed to leave enough room for imaginary characters. Like vignettes, they are short, elegant, and timeless. Expect to become a part of the story when listening to these beautifully crafted soundtracks. Empathetically constructed, the pieces foster our human inclination to seek out foreign experiences and emotions. Listen to "Sparrows" from the Yakona soundtrack and you'll find yourself wandering an alternate reality. Sherburn's sextet, Montopolis, has performed live shows at SXSW and will debut his newest project inspired by the classic silent film, "Man with a Movie Camera" at the North Door TONIGHT July 25th at 8pm. -Rebecca Blandon

BUHU 4-Track Cinemat Releas

Releasing an EP is a classic step for new bands to get their name on the scene, but the electro-pop trio BUHU decided to up the ante. Each of the four tracks on their new release went through a lengthy creative process, with every part staged, recorded and filmed separately. What we get from their labor of love is a four-part audio-visual dance party.  They opted to spread the release out over their July residency at Swan Dive, bringing in other great local acts and releasing a video from the project with each week’s show. The fourth and final video is set to premier there this Friday, July 25th, along with performances from SIP SIP, Total Unicorn, and Slomo Drags. To put it simply (because BUHU won’t), you can expect a good time. –Written by: Marie Meyers

Basketball Shorts Are A Slam Dunk

Basketball Shorts was born out of a passion for rocking hard and drinking lots of Lone Star.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call the makings of a true Austin party band.
Basketball Shorts come alive on stage with head-banging anthems designed for having a sweaty ball. Inspired by everything from hard partying to pizza to Forrest Gump, the trio’s songs are peppered with quips, adding to those good time party vibes.
A band that doesn’t take themselves too seriously? That’s a band you can really get down with.

If you love rocking hard and Lone Star, then check out Basketball Shorts’ saccharine new single “Candy Boys” via Austin label, Fleeting Youth Records. - Gillian Driscoll

Recommended Show: Twin Vision at Holy Mountain, July 23rd

 Twin Vision sounds like a modest blend of The Strokes and The White Stripes. Being that Twin Vision was only formed last year, we speculate whether the band has something new to incorporate into the ever transforming sound of garage rock. Labeled as "manic-psych," this band is definitely one to keep an eye on as they evolve their aesthetic. After listening to their two albums on band camp, the diversity in style is already evident.  Their first release in particular, Three Songs to Tickle Your Fantasy, but also their recent release called, Ice Cream, a nonstop powerhouse of anthemic blues to grunge rock songs. Catch their raucous show on July 23rd at Holy Mountain featuring Black Pussy and stream Ice Cream below. -Rebecca Blandon

Tocca's Sound Has Us Gazing Into Space

Risa Elledge and William Wong are Tocca, a genre-defying project unafraid of sharing premature works; unmastered and raw, their songs promise much potential. Elledge's vocals are undoubtedly enticing and easy on the ears. Accompanied by bright and uplifting guitar riffs on "What You Need to Get By", her slight husk and powerful emotional projections seem effortless. Each track is completely different from the next, and yet flows seamlessly due to Elledge's consistently distinct and breathy vocals. Stream "What You Need To Get By" below. -Rebecca Glandon
