Upper Level Lows: “She Got Style”

By: Jack Anderson

Now I don’t want to jinx the elements, but with only one triple digit high in the forecast for this week, it seems like we might finally be cooling down just a bit. So if you’ve been in sweaty solitude and need to take advantage of this (presumably brief) seasonal respite, we’ve got a couple of live show recommendations for the funk rock enthusiasts out there. Austin quartet Upper Level Lows has only been around for a couple years, and released their debut EP The Void last September. Now, just under a year later, ULL’s feisty live performances have elevated considerably, with new material landing soon on the band’s upcoming sophomore album. If you want a sneak peak of the latest stuff, you can catch Upper Level Lows 9:15PM tonight at Far Out Lounge with openers Concrete Shoes, Space Trayn, and BChenz or 6PM this Saturday for a free show at Oskar Blues Brewery. And if you’re still not sure what to expect genre-wise…shred along with the psych-prog-disco-funk-rock shifts of “She Got Style”.

Daniel Fears: “Say Something”

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, […]
