Join Football, Etc. in releasing their “CORNER LP” on Community Records and Ruiners “Plebeian” on Miss Champagne Records.
Football, Etc. (Houston, TX)
“The Houston trio’s third album, Corner, shows a band getting more comfortable in the studio, taking full advantage of J. Robbins’ ears and expertise, who also recorded and mixed the band’s Disappear EP from 2015. But it also shows a band maturing like late-period Rainer Maria — the raw emotion has evolved with long hindsight and subtle dynamics that shift in muted hues instead of broad brushstrokes. Football, etc. is particularly thoughtful about its backwards glance, balancing twinkly guitar ballads and moody pop songs, staking its own identity in a genre that’s still discovering newness.” – NPR
Ruiners (Houston, TX)
“There aren’t too many times when you can watch a room full of people be just as excited as the band that’s performing, but that’s what happens when Houston’s Ruiners performs. Mixing elements of punk and post punk, the four piece has been described as a mix of The Wipers and Television. Keeping on a tireless pace of recording and booking D.I.Y. charity shows since releasing the 2016 EP Wasted Years, while being respected as one of the most pure and integrity based punk bands coming out of the Houston punk scene.” – David Garrick, Free Press Houston
Yorick (Austin, TX)
Austin based Screamo band.
Greg Cote & The Real Life Friends (Houston, TX)
“There’s a pretty good chance that you might not know the name Greg Cote, but if you’re an artist who he’s proclaimed love for, then you’ve definitely seen him at one of your shows. Cote doesn’t perform as much as I wished he did, but he’s always been a welcomed change in the world of acoustic music. His emo-tinged sound is a thousand times better than when you see a legendary emo lead singer tour your favorite band’s tracks in a cheap solo effort. Cote is definitely the real deal and it’s never more obvious than on his latest release, this year’s HTX. Though just a five song release, the album is definitely a catchy, thoughtful love letter from one of the best unheard artists in Houston today.” – David Garrick, Free Press Houston
