Alan Paloma, aka VEGA, aka Ghosthustler, has a new album coming out under the Neon Indian moniker called Era Extrana. No stranger to the Austin scene Alan has been crafting his sound amongst us for several years. My first encounter came at Beauty Bar in early 09 for VEGA’s CD release party. After that epic danceparty I was hooked until a few mediocre Neon Indian performances, most notably at FFFFest 4. Since then he has definitely found his sound and stage presence to live up to his potential and the new single off his album (Polish Girl) is owning the top spot on Hype Machine.

Having recently released their debut self-titled album Gardens & Villa have been touring heavily supporting it, most recently opening for Foster the People. These friends from Santa Barbara apparently camped outside the studio in Oregon where they recorded this album. They have a refreshingly synthesized sound with the highlight being Black Hills and Star Fire Power. You can catch them at Mohawk on the 10th and it will be a show not to miss.
San Marcos post-rock goodness This Will Destroy You kick things off Friday night at Mohawk. Their facemelting sound never upsets just make sure you keep your shit together.

Multi Genre weekend coming up. Dance Party Friday @ Mohawk The Field and The Juan Maclean will be stopping by. I’ve recently come to love The Field and especially one track off his new album Yesterday and Today and on top of that there is a Foals remix which actually turned me on to this Swedish minimilist in the first place. Download it and go see them.
