    Favorite Austin Band - And You Can't Say SPOON!

    What's your favorite Austin band (other than the ubiquitous Spoon?)

    I really like this little alt country band called Mice and Rifles that plays at Stubb's a lot. The lead singer sounds a bit like Johnny Cash. :)

    okkervil river or ghostland observatory

  • I LOVE

    Voxtrot and Ghostland Observatory

  • The Octopus Project is slowly but surely becoming my favorite Austin band. Voxtrot used to be back in earlier days, but they've changed their sound a lot in my opinion. Not to say they aren't good though, I still like them, just not as much as I used to. What Made Milwaukee Famous is great too.

    okkervil river

    I like their acoustic album

  • Drake Tungsten. Wait... He's not a band... And it's just a cop-out answer because I was going to say Spoon.

    Besides Spoon? The Duckhills.

    Wait, you mean CURRENT bands, and not something from 17 years in the past? The Black and White Years and Belaire. A year ago I might have said Voxtrot, but to be honest I think I overplayed them and got tired. I may come back to them at a later date and think, "Man, what was I thinking not listening to them anymore?!"

  • {{{Sunset}}}'s new album is superb. Experimental Aircraft just put out a good one too.

    Explosions in the Sky is the only appropriate answer to this question. I suppose if Spoon are ruled out then they are too though.

    I'll go with Amplified Heat, My Education, and The Meat Purveyors. Haven't heard the first's new album yet though, and there are of course tons of local acts I haven't heard at all.
