DOWNLOAD: Residual Kid - "Friend" (MP3)
Residual Kid @ Frontier Bar - 8/18/2012
Austin's Residual Kid (who we covered a few weeks back at Frontier Bar) just released an MP3 (download above) and video (watch below) for their song 'Friend'. Their EP Faces is set for release on October 9 which is three days after they play North Door to celebrate its arrival.
You don't need to wait that long to see them though. Their next Austin appearance is on September 18 at Stubb's. They'll be on the inside stage after Devo and Blondie's show outside. You can also catch them at Fun Fun Fun Fest in November.

DOWNLOAD: Tycho - "Dive" (Keep Shelly in Athens Remix) (MP3)
Tycho (aka Scott Hansen) released the very solid Dive LP last year and has been touring in support of it. On April 3, he'll release a 12" single for the album's title track which includes remixes of the song by Memoryhouse and Keep Shelly in Athens. KSiA's remix, which you can download above or stream below, replaces the song's late night highway driving feel with a skittering beat similar to their work on "Campus Martius."
Tycho is currently finishing up a tour in Europe but he'll make his way back over to North America for SXSW, where he's currently got 4 shows scheduled (though more be announced). He'll play a Terrorbird/Force Field party on March 14 at Red 7, an IODA party at Red Eyed Fly on 3/14 with The Wedding Present, Thee Oh Sees, Polica, and others, and the Ghostly International Official Showcase at Club Deville on 3/14 with Matthew Dear, Mux Mool, Shigeto, Com Truise, and Choir of Young Believers (that's three shows in one day if you're following along), and a FILTER party at Clive Bar on 3/16 with Grimes, YACHT, New Build, and MNDR. You can view those dates in list format below.

DOWNLOAD: Boy Friend - Egyptian Wrinkle (MP3)
Local duo Boy Friend's debut album, Egyptian Wrinkle, is out March 5 on the Hell Yes! label, but the band are throwing an early record release party this Sunday (2/12) 29th St. Ballroom at the Spider House, a show that also features labelmates Love Inks (who played Beauty Bar last week), plus darkwavers Missions. Boy Friend, who Tim caught at Beauty Bar in December, will then hit the road with San Francisco shoegazers Young Prisms, a tour that will wrap up in time for both bands to be back in Austin for you-know-what.
Christa Palazzolo and Sarah Brown formed Boy Friend after leaving their previous group, Sleep ∞ Over (which Stefanie Franciotti continued on her own). Like that group, Boy Friend are warm and hazy with Palazzolo and Brown's ethereal vocals floating above, but with more melodic hooks to latch onto. It's like a nice bath, but no pruny hands.
You can download Egyptian Wrinkle's title track at the top of this post, or stream it below. Click through for the record release show flyer and Boy Friend/Young Prisms tour dates as well.

IODA SXSW Opening Day Bash @ Red Eyed Fly on 3/14
Happy February 1st! A little more than a month out from SXSW 2012, it still feels early to talk about all of the many goings-on at South By for 2012 - but IODA (Independent Online Distribution Alliance) has announced their 8th annual opening day showcase (RSVP here), and released an mp3 sampler as a preview to the event (featuring tracks by The Wedding Present, Thee Oh Sees (who play 35 Denton right before this), Polica and many others). This year's IODA kickoff to SXSW Music will be at The Red Eyed Fly on March 14th.
