WHIRR

Bay Area post-shoegaze sextet WHIRR releases its debut full length Pipe Dreams on March 13 via Tee Pee Records. WHIRR's celestial sound has been described as "if My Bloody Valentine decided to cooperate with Sonic Youth" and has drawn comparison to influential acts such as Slowdive, Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins. WHIRR's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance.  The sound of WHIRR is a totalizing crush when texture and volume hit perfect balance and bright pop melodies wander through dark, dense guitar noise. 


     "shoegazey gorgeousness" - BROOKLYN VEGAN 

 

     "Although barely a year old, Californian six-piece Whirl seem as if they've been playing together most of their lives, cocooned away honing their sound waiting for the right time to unleash their carefully orchestrated wares." - DROWNED IN SOUND

        

Catch WHIRR’s performance at SXSW on Saturday, March 17 at the Iron Bear.

The St. James Society


Austin, TX psychedelic garage rockers THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY has released its self-titled debut on Tee Pee Records.  Recorded at ATX's Cacophony Recorders (The Black Angels, Explosions in the Sky, Roky Erickson), the four song EP delivers electric rock music that brilliantly connects the dots between the late '60s British blues-based bands and the brooding atmospheres of early '80s post punk resulting in a hypnotically powerful sound the fabulous five-piece has coined "Pentecostal Desert Glam".  When the heavy swagger of vocalist / bassist Brandon Burkart aligns with the band's heavy-footed rhythms, ticking-time-bomb beat and stunning twin vocal tandem of rebel queens Elza Burkart and Candice Bertalan, the resulting musical statement mainlines the thrill of defiance straight to the listener's heart.  Meet your new favorite band.

 

      "three-mile-wide psych rock...When Jim Morrison said “the West is the best,” he'd never been to East Austin." – AUSTIN CHRONICLE

      

      “Austin, Texas mystical-garage quintet The Saint James Society inflict a sound that instantly announces their influences—the Doors, Roky Erickson, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Sabbath...the band destroys in a    live setting." – VEGAS SEVEN
