We can’t wait to get to Austin, and we bet you can’t either. In preparation for next week’s festivities, we’re previewing tracks from a few of the artists set to play the Billy Reid/Third Man Records Shindig, which kicks off at 11:30 at Weather Up on March 18. Check out these cuts from Third Man Records artist Olivia Jean and Oklahoma indie-rock outfit Broncho. And be sure to RSVP to the party here.
With a heavy bass intro and crunchy guitar, Olivia Jean tells a third-person story about the cliched damsel in distress — putting a spin on the old story in a way only she can.
Broncho is sure to add some high-octane sizzle to the afternoon’s festivities. “It’s On” is a muzzled and fast garage-rock tune that’s over before you even know you want more.
