TeeVee: “Junk Driver” (Live in Studio 1A)

By: Taylor Wallace

To hear the studio version of any TeeVee song is to lose yourself in the deluge of psych rock dipped in shoegaze, but when you experience them live, their garage rock soul shines through. Started by drummer Will Rock in vocalist Alex Capistran’s garage, the two began jamming together and that jam evolved into the four-piece known as Austin’s TeeVee. 2 EP’s later, the group is set to release their debut full length later this year. “Junk Driver” turns the tempo down and lets the fuzz air out and stretch into the white space without sacrificing a modicum of garage rock attitude. One of their shoegaze-ier tracks, the momentum picks up as the songs trudge forward with Rock’s solid drum licks and fills to keep you oriented in the heavy-breathing beast inside the TeeVee.

“Junk Driver” appears on their Bask E.P., out now. Catch them TONIGHT at Hotel Vegas with SOAKED, Goldblooom, and the Sour Notes. If that’s too long to wait, check out the rest of their Studio 1A here.

Here at KUTX and Song of the Day, we try to be as dutiful as we can in providing both an accurate representation of the Austin Music Experience and great tunes. But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]

Nihiloxica: “Asidi”

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
