Beshken & CLAVVS to play Day 2 of Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, 03.16

FREE Eventm RSVP here! Info about Day One here!

For our upcoming Austin Pedal & Synth Expo Showcase, we are excited to get to feature the music of a couple of NYC locals. The electronic music Beshken makes is meditative and complex, weaving between digital and acoustic instruments with dreamlike results. His latest track, “Cursed”, picks its way between honey smooth synths and dissonant vocal effects, reflecting on the mental revolutions between sleep and insomnia. On the other end, while their lyrics too reflect on sleepless thoughts, the music of CLAVVS is rather lucid. The production on their most recent single “Devils I Know” places the vocals at the forefront of a hypnotic and unexpectedly baroque electronic backdrop. The Expo will be held on March 16th at the Chugging Monkey - listen to CLAVVS, Beshken and the other artists who will appear below. - Sunny Betz 





Indie pop artist Struan opens at The End on 03.14

Struan Shields -- who performs music on a first-name basis as Struan -- takes the stage to open for Mike Mains & the Branches at The End on March 14th. The indie pop artist released two singles over the course the past several months which have been raking in the Spotify listens. The first track "Better" brings on the synth-pop of the early 2010s which might give listeners hints of The Naked And Famous or YouTube retrowave artists like FM-84 or The Midnight. The latest track, called "Always", slows things down to a tempo fans of The 1975 or CHVRCHES might find familiar. Struan gets the indie pop formula right, and it'll be worth your while to see him execute it live. Take a listen to "Always" below. - Will Sisskind

Stacey Randol releases mellow new LP "Songs in the Soil"

One of the fun parts of writing about the local music scene is that you get to discover new musicians, even if they're just new to you and have been around for an album or two. Stacey Randol's one of those musicians with a couple of records under her belt, but only with the release of Songs in the Soil, her sound brings in elements of legendary artists like Stevie Nicks or Kate Bush as she spins weaving melodies and mellow mood-rock instrumentals into timeless songs. A single listen to "Realize" or "Hammock Cat" will give you a burst of the vintage influence that Randol fuses into her music; you'll hear why her music has appeared on TV shows like Say Yes To The Dress or All My Children. Check out "Hammock Cat" below. - Will Sisskind

JD Simo releases bluesy new solo LP "Off At 11"

Blues rocker JD Simo has a busy spring ahead of him; having just wrapped up a tour of the States, he's headed out to Europe to take on the UK and the Netherlands with Tommy Emmanuel before he returns to our side of the pond to support the Allman Betts Band. Plus, Simo has just put out a new record called Off At 11, in which they channel the gritty sound of Clapton, Hendrix, Lightnin' Hopkins, and B.B. King. The songs retain all of the energy and drive of a live performance of the blues; you can hear the passion in Simo's guitar solo on the title track as if it's blistering your eardrums before your eyes. Simo says about the album: “There’s an underlying theme of LOVE that permeates the album. Both outward love but also inner and self love. These days, everything is so heavy, but I just want to point out some joy, love and deep passion; in this world, we all share that spirit. OFF AT 11 does that.” Take a listen to "Off At 11" below. - Will Sisskind
