The Zoltars (Austin, TX)
“he amount of garage rock flooding a hungry market is a Caligula sized feast. Much of it is fast food quick; a lot of cheap, easy food with little taste that never satiates. Austin based The Zoltars have always been fine dining by comparison. But please don’t wear your tuxedo or expect to keep elbows off the table while enjoy the band’s latest. Garage rock’s ragged catchiness is paired nicely with clean, crisp production. A note isn’t missed and the tempo’s neat. There’s not a hint of image or concern for true authenticity. Like the best…well, anything…imitation is flattering but it should never be out-right theft. The Zoltars are their own Michelin star-rated greatness; inventive by completely skewing a trendy version of garage rock that will come and go with every new generational tweak.” – Tiny Mix Tapes
The Wiggins (Houston, TX)
“Jon Read is an artist and a musician. With his band, the Wiggins, he makes the kind of music that they’ll play on oldies stations fifty years from now after the plug gets pulled, the blood gets spilled, the power returns, and people get back to partying like they party right now. The Wiggins’ music is a loud, hissing mix of idiosyncratic garage and punk, and Blues..” – Tex Kershcen, Indian Jewelry
