¿Qué Pasa? has become are newest favorite band to come out of Austin. Blending Surf, Pop, Punk and whatever mood striking riff they conjur up all under a bitter-sweet lyrical palette. ¿Qué Pasa? work without pretension or genre attachtment, rather crafting short songs that put together in a 10 song debut album serve as the summer that isn’t always perfect soundtrack; where your bed sounds better than a party, where the beer is semi-warm and guitar riffs are the only worth-while currency.

¿Qué Pasa? will release their debut album “Big Mistake” on Cassette this weekend at The Mix. The show is FREE. Check the FB Link for more info..

The Young Maths Release A Final Album

By / April 1, 2015

Far-wells a never easy, especially in music when the farewells only seem temporary and transitory. Bands come and go, side-projects sweep in and leave a unsatisfying taste on our music palette’s. Did that band really exist if you can’t find them on Sound-cloud under a massive clutter of advertising? What if their word-press domain has run out? Even in the age of digital musical anthropology(where all is accessible), when bands break up or quit; it sucks.

The Young Maths were undoubtedly a staff favorite here. The band’s razor-sharp guitar riffs, angsty lyrics and frenzied vocals made them one of the most critically praised and fan-loved bands in the state. Their live shows were forever a raw intersection of dance and punk dynamics. Bred from the the far corner of Tejas, The  Valley-the part of the state that has secretly produced some of the best indie-rock bands in past decade. The Young Maths three releases were a snap-shot of overlooked region full of artistic prowess and original product. I still hold “Thank You Good We Are” as one of the most urgent and exciting EPs around.

About a year after their final show the group released their final release “Quiet”, we haven’t got time to give it a spin but knowing what these guys track record we expect nothing but goodness. Check the release below and RIP The Young Maths
