Your Valentines

By: Laurie Gallardo

The swoon started over Bedroom Demos (2018). Now, with the release of their EP Green, there’s more gorgeousness to swoon over.

The Love Austin Music Month celebrations continue at KUTX with the Austin Music Minute giving extra love to all-local artists, and that includes today’s AMM featured band, dreamy surf-psych, synth-pop outfit Sasha and The Valentines. Mind you, there’s no actual Sasha in the band, but an impressive collective talent (Sarah Addi, John Bergin, Billy Hickey, Alex Whitelaw, and Tim Zoidis) weaving a unique texture and depth for their sound.

Hearts in your AMM host’s eyes. Sasha and The Valentines plays tonight at Hotel Vegas, 1501 E. 6th St., sharing the bill with Austin-based pop duo Emme and psych/garage-pop band Brother Sports. The music kicks off just after 10 p.m. Very recommended.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
