Girl in a Coma
Girl in a Coma
San Antonio’s Girl In A Coma have left a permanent tattoo on the hearts of music lovers with their piercing songs and nuclear performances. They’ve blazed a singular trail since Nina Diaz joined the band at age 13 and have found champions and comrades along the way including Joan Jett who signed them, Morrissey, Sia, Tegan and Sara, The Pogues and Amanda Palmer who have hand selected them for tours. In addition, Robert Rodriguez asked them to compose one of the key songs for his film Machete last year. All the while, they have been building one of the most impassioned and diverse fan bases in music. Girl in a Coma are that rare feral band, unaffected by trends, that has managed to stay wild and thrill us at every turn. Their latest album, Exits & All the Rest, was released in late 2011 on Blackheart Records, and is the most heart-stopping turn yet. Last year the album was named to NPR's list of Top 50 Albums of they year and won the Independent Music Award for Best Indie/Alt. Rock Album in 2012.
Young Tongue
Young Tongue
Austin TX's indie rock fivesome, Young Tongue (previously The Baker Family), consists of husband and wife Stu and Liz Baker along with Nathan Ribner, Darryl Schomberg II, and Travis Larrew. Founded in 2014 after six years of performing and releasing music as The Baker Family, the group released the single 'Cat Calls' along with three other songs in February, 2014, and plans to debut their freshman album 'Death Rattle' in the Summer of 2014.

Young Tongue complicates the earthy momentum of their percussion-driven sound with surprising touches—an airy omnichord melody or a jagged guitar solo. Their sound generally ranges from progressive indie rock to dance-infused dream pop. It’s this range of lightness of sound and force of rhythm that stirs their audiences to dance. Their lyrics move associatively, stringing along images to reveal stories. If a new language is born out of a necessity to communicate, Young Tongue captures that same sense of urgency to expose narrative.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Stu Baker presents a magnetic and mysterious live show. He oscillates between calculated subdued stillness and less-controlled fits that underscore the music’s rawness. Their show highlights the complexity of their drum parts—at times three members playing percussion at once. Liz Baker brings the same lightness and bright energy as her vocals and omnichord parts bring the songs. She moves everywhere, weaving between the other members, connecting them, bringing their music to life. But perhaps the best part of their show is the element of surprise. You never know what strange object will be used as a drum, which instrument Stu will play next, what moment Liz will hop off stage and ask you to dance.
