Austin's Spray Paint make scratchy animal beat garage, all arched eyebrows, shouty choruses and nervy guitar playing. If you like early Devo, The Fall and their sonic descendants The Intelligence and The Blind Shake, their splatter is of a similar ilk. The band put out two albums in 2013 and you can stream a few tracks off each below.
Spray Paint are currently on tour with Detroit's Protomartyr which makes for a pretty great double bill. That tour hits NYC this weekend at Death by Audio on Saturday (4/12) with The Mark Morgan Band and Palm, and then on Sunday (4/13) at Cake Shop with V.B.A.. The band also have a few dates after their run with Protomartyr and all are listed below.
