These Are Words

These Are Words. That's the band. They're a garage rock trio from Austin. Corey Anderson sings and plays guitar. Dan LeVine plays drums. Ian Rundell slaps the bass. The band recorded a self-titled cassette In March of 2011, and this thing rattles like a loose wheel at 1oo miles per hour. It's fuzzy, lo-fi, ramshackle, surf-blues-punk and roll.

The self-recorded tape contains four songs, which you can download for free at bandcamp. According to this, the band's most prominent influence is a fairly recent discovery of the 13th Floor Elevators. You can't go wrong there. These Are Words play around town quite a bit, namely at Beerland and Trailer Space Records. Keep track on facebook.
