The Distant Seconds
It’s said that much can be drawn by observing the company someone keeps. So what does being consistently hand-picked to perform with artists like Death Cab for Cutie, The Bravery, Cursive, The Rapture and Ted Leo & the Pharmacists say about New Roman Times? It shows that they’re the next generation in the great American indie rock tradition. The husband-wife combination of Owens and Fluri provide the band’s vocal dynamics, allowing them to stroke vulnerability from all angles. Between the tortured wail of Owens and the intimate coo of Fluri, their smart indie rock soars as much as it digs. They’ve performed with The Raveonettes, Autolux, Enon, and VHS or Beta, among others.
The members of local rock quintet STEREO IS A LIE have each played in other bands throughout the years. Most notably, frontman Glynn Wedgewood spent time curating his former band IV Thieves. Here’s what Launch787 says: “STEREO IS A LIE are Austin’s latest effort in forceful, modernistic rock ‘n’ roll. The quintet crafts a dynamic sound with one foot in smoky bars and another foot in a packed stadium, despite having only made its presence felt in Austin less than a year ago. STEREO IS A LIE has an ominous weight underlining its rock-heavy chords. It’s Jet without the cocky, superficial appeal, Queens of the Stone Age with more range, or Muse without the whole pre-apocalyptic fear-mongering thing, aiming more comfortably for a hybrid of alternative rock and snarling Brit-rock.”
On Sad Accordions, Austin Sound says: "...the new songs that they have shown off recently pack both more power and intricacy, polishing their polar extremes into delicate and haunting folk and slowly crescendoing anthems"
