    On Being an Angel, Stab, Clear Acid, Palefade., Nothing After Death [inside]

    Texasgaze night at Mohawk covers all ends of the pedalboard spectrum, stuffing heavy riffs (locals Stab, celebrating debut Quarter Life Crisis) alongside throat-tearing vocals (PaleFade.), electronic beats (Fort Worth’s Clear Acid), and noise-pop (Houston’s Nothing After Death). One-time tourmates of the Lemonheads and Juliana Hatfield, headliners On Being an Angel skew more melodic, offering circa-1992 power-pop deliverance served with a healthy dose of distortion. “You Say” is deceptively cheery and “Britt Boy” slows into a wistful dirge, but when Nick Flitton’s guitar soars above Paige Applin’s monotone in “Favorite Doll,” the band lock in for five minutes of guitar bliss.

    Night Drive (EP release), Haunt Me, Holy Wire

    New Order crushed South by Southwest in March, while German synth pioneers Tangerine Dream packed this same venue four nights later. Someone should have snuck local trio Night Drive onto both bills. Rodney Connell, Nick Dudek, and Brandon Duhon identify as a filmic, “post-punk blend of synth-pop” via new extended-play Position II. A banging drive to “Vultures” and “White Lights,” cinematic in tempo – quick cuts and car chases – and heavy emotional resonance, evince the three-dimensional steeliness of the former genre and the lush vocals of the latter. Slicker than preceding 2013 beat ball-peen Position I, Night Drive’s latest matches their eponymous 2017 full-length and hails Survive-like ear-phoria.
