Nemegata: “Te Vi”

By: Jack Anderson

Houston trio Khruangbin’s been getting a lot of kudos for their blend of world music and ’70s-style psychedelia, but Austin three-piece Nemegata and their own timeless sound may very well become their nemesis. Nemegata makes extensive use of Spanish and Muisca in their tracks and effortlessly alternates between neo-traditional rhythmsand effects-drenched psych-prog-rock, as heard on their 2020 debut LPHycha Wy, produced by Beto Martinez. The banddropped their live album Changua Sessions, Vol. 1 last year andjust played at Empire Control Room with Superf├│nicos, but as Nemegata climbs the ranks of must-see Austin acts, their latest achievement is landing inAustin Music Foundation’s Artist Development Program. Nemegata’s shared two new singles for ATX Gen Next: Adventures in Person, so celebrate Love Austin Music Month with the truly eclectic ingenuity of “Te Vi”.
