Flounders Without Eyes—What’s the Rush—The Flounders put out their fourth album What’s the Rush produced by Lloyd Maines bringing magnetic jam-rock band straight up Austin style. This large rock ensemble origins go back to the 1990s with a relocation from Houston to Austin and regular gigs jamming at bars and clubs throughout town. The album is a natural melting pot of sounds Americana roots music, bluegrass, folk and country with bluesy rock to top it off. Soulful songs cross genres easily and skillful songwriting combined with innate instrumentation and harmonization make this an album that’s all Flounders. 4.5 McRiprock’s
Bocastria—Texicana—This is the first full-length album from Boscastria that takes you on a path from pure rock to Ranchera to Tejas Reggaeton all of which are in a Spanglish harmony. It is defining in Latin fusion sounds making for an interesting mix and a unique sound. Harmonization and instrumentation reign supreme and capture your ears even if you aren’t on the page of what’s being sung about. 4.5 McRiprock’s.
