Experimental Aircraft

Experimental Aircraft are yet another band from Austin that rocks. I've been making my way through a good amount of local music lately and it is a nice change of pace. If you don't stop and look around every once in a while you will miss out on a lot of stuff that is right in front of you. It's totally awesome that Austin attracts a plethora of the best touring acts on the planet, but it ain't like we're lacking in quality homegrown talent.

Experimental Aircraft have been creating music together for over ten years, playing spaced-out rock that is probably best described as psychedelic shoegaze. Their newest effort, aptly titled Third Transmission: Meet Me On Echo Terrace, was released in February via Graveface Records (Octopus Project, Black Moth Super Rainbow). The track "Agent 23" comes from that one, while "Seasick" is heard on 2002's Love For The Last Time.
If you're not busy tomorrow night and find yourself in the area, Experimental Aircraft are playing 101x's Homegrown Live at Mohawk with The Calm Blue Sea and Monuments. You can get into that show for just $2 with an RSVP at the link. You can buy me a shot with the money you save, if you want.
