All Girl Bands: Planets

"Their “Love Song” is reminiscent of early Sonics style Garage Rock. The melody is catchy."

Planets is, most briefly, a Rock N’ Roll band that happens to be all girls. They say that their personal interests include “playing shows with you”, and that is exactly what the Austin music scene is about.

Foreign Mothers

Punk rock! This is the kind of music that was made for house shows. These beautiful ladies draw cute pictures, cut their dresses short, and produce rock and roll cassette tapes. This is the kind of thing that happens in college towns across the country, and none know it better than Austin.

Shakey Graves - 'Roll the Bones'

The sparse, haunted alt-country on Shakey Graves's one and only album ought to fill your skull with scenes of animal skeletons under bald desert moonlight. Stream the LP's title track below.
