RF Shannon (Austin, TX)

Shane Renfro, RF Shannon's songwriter, was born in the Texas panhandle and raised in the pines of East Texas. This stark contrast of scenery would eventually come to inform the minimalist brand of hazy pastoral music that he and the band creates. What began in 2014 as an experiment in psychomagic with the intention of healing ancestral gaps (RF Shannon is the name Renfro would see on pieces of mail as a child addressed to his late grandfather) became an enduring expression of unique songwriting.  “I think we carry a lot of ghosts, individually and collectively, from a lack of connecting with the process of living and dying well, I think our individualistic tendencies have unintentionally orphaned us in some way,” Renfro says. “In our songs I am drawn to calling up oneiric images, symbols, unknown things, and wrapping them gently in a tapestry of my musical influences— namely country and old soul music.”
 

RF Shannon maintains an unnameable quality to their brand of Texas music, though some attempts have served apt at times: Desert Blues, Deconstructed Americana, Western Gothic. “I’ve never really cared to figure it out. I like the idea of a Southwestern sound. That’s my haunt. We’re too country for the indie world, not country enough for the Americana crowd. Too mellow for the psych scene, too Texas thunderstorm for the California sunshine.”
 

Hard on the heels of 2018’s Trickster BluesRF Shannon will release their new album on Keeled Scales on August 2, 2019

Birthday Club - (Houston, TX)
https://birthdayclub.bandcamp.com

 

Birthday Club is the music of Houston, TX based musician, songwriter & producer, Stephen Wells. Summoning an off-kilter incarnation of sun-drenched bedroom pop, Birthday Club swirls together dark and jangly guitars with a shimmering backdrop of brooding synthesizers. Birthday Club has produced several original scoring compositions for NPR radio and has been featured at festivals around the U.S. like SXSW Official, CMJ, Savannah Stopover and In Bloom Festival alongside bands like Beck, Grizzly Bear and Explosions in the Sky
 

Drawing upon swatches of psychedelia and New Wave, Houston's Birthday Club crafts eclectic pop tunes awash in faint allusions to L.A.'s mid-Eighties Paisley Underground. Guitarist/vocalist Stephen Wells cuts a commanding center stage persona on souped-up summer blasts like "Having Too Much Fun" from last year's Lighten Up EP - Austin Chronicle "Must See Pop Bands of SXSW
 

The synth lines on Birthday Club’s new single “Having Too Much Fun” sound like they were lifted straight from an “all killer” mixtape of only The Cure’s most body-moving hits. Meanwhile, the guitar plays along with a riff that could have slotted in nicely in any number of new wave comps. But rather than jump on the track with a morose, sad-boy delivery a la Robert Smith, this Houston band sets themselves apart with an uplifting, echo-y vocal worthy of the song’s title ... If the band can wrangle together a few more tracks that hit with this level of intensity, then their debut EP Lighten Up will be a force to be reckoned with - Consequence of Sound
