Woven Bones has Record

Woven Bones is an Austin three-piece whose music is a psychedelic-shoegaze-rock and roll concoction filled with rumbling distortion, fuzzy vocal effects and thick reverb that can't help but draw comparisons to the sound of The Velvet Underground. You can read up on Woven Bones at the Fader, Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Austinist.
"Relocating to Austin from his roots in Florida in 2008, Andrew Burr slithered restlessly, reinventing Woven Bones from it’s primordial Spacemen 3-blues/psyche jangle into a hard driving, meaner, louder, and altogether more vicious band that’s turned into one of their city’s new shining lights of creative energy.

Crossing the dark drawl of the cramps ‘76 demo-era sludge with Jesus and Mary Chain’s demonic drum waves, and a dedication to simplicity as ravaging and throbbing as those buzzed out gospel recordings that Sonic Boom tried so desperately to recreate, Woven Bones are not here to put up a front. Their honest, neurotically-frayed, and manic songs conjure ominous impulses instantly on impact, and weave an intricate web of repetition that certainly carries them down the dark path to your soul."

The Debut LP from Woven Bones is dropping next week on Chicago's HoZac Records, and tonight they celebrate the release with a free show at Beerland. Prep yourself by taking "In and Out and Back Again" for a spin below:


Miami garage rockers Jacuzzi Boys will be in the house tonight too.
