The Yawpers
The Yawpers
Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter/guitarist Nate Cook, young Boulder trio The Yawpers (named after Walt Whitman's promise to "sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world") recall a grittier version of Wilco, with as much raw country sensibility as twisted indie imagination. Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of indie-country and rock 'n' roll. The band's debut CD, Savage Blue, is due 11/29/2011 on Adventure Records.

The partnership between Adventure Records and the Yawpers aims to bring soulful, Southern-tinged rock 'n' roll from the Front Range to the larger music world. Savage Blue was recorded in three locations - with former Smashing Pumpkins engineer Bill Douglas in Colorado Springs, with talented young engineer Tira Neal at tastefully lo-fi studio in Broomfield, and at Yawpers guitarist Jesse Parmet's apartment/studio in Boulder. Highlighting the simultaneous romance and ravage of singer/guitarist Nate Cook, Savage Blue alternates between sinister indie dirge ala The Black Angels; poignant, off-the-rails Exile On Main St.-style rock; and desolate, dusty balladry.

Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of alt-country and rock 'n' roll. And they're playing in your town very soon.

The Blind Pets
The Blind Pets
Rock 'n' roll faith-healers the Blind Pets, known for their show-stopping live gigs where frontman Joshua Logan jumps into the crowd wrestles his Gibson SG into sonic oblivion, have long been a spark plug in the engine of Austin's underground music scene. Their working-class sound, recalling both the frantic guitar pop of Thee Oh Sees and the classic rock hooliganism of the Eagles of Death Metal, demonstrates conviction to the holy trinity of heavy guitar, bass, and drums that'll make you a believer again.

While they've received consistent critical acclaim since forming in 2007—the Austin Chronicle calling their 2011 LP Sweet Tooth "One of the better Saturday night rock LPs in recent memory" and being repeatedly heralded as a must-see band by KUTX—2013 has proved a watershed year for the trio. They successfully completed three west coast tours, received prominent placement on the soundtrack for Showtime hit Californication, and had their He Said She Said 7-inch released by local trendsetters Pau Wau Records.

In Austin, you can find the Blind Pets detonating speakers at eastside honky-tonk the White Horse or laying down supped-up stoner rock on Stubb's intimate inside stage, but more often than not, they're out beating up the road and making their name the old fashioned way: playing shows and selling records.
