Infinite Stories

By: Laurie Gallardo

It all boils down to a meeting of musical minds. Austin-based pop outfit The Infinites came into being not long after front man Jerod Leibowich heard some extraordinary guitar loops that bandmate Dan LeVine had been working on. LeVine hadn’t given much thought to doing anything with them, but Leibowich was struck by an intriguing emotional allure they had, something compelling enough to inspire Leibowich to add lyrics to the tracks and expand upon their distinctive pop sound.

The resulting awesomeness is what you experience on The Infinites’ new self-titled LP, which also features a cast of fictional characters dealing with their own emotional roller coasters. Who knows how their tales will end?? Hear their assorted stories at The Infinites’ album release show tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1501 E. 6th St., on a bill featuring Deep Time, Blank Hellscape, and Nevil. So good. Doors at 7 p.m. Recommended.

Both […]
