"...More than ever, Boyfrndz occupy the gap between prog and pop. Musically left-brained, lyrically right hemisphere, the Austin quartet fuses mathematics and passion on teaser track “Gone,” twisting a minor post-rock waltz into a tonal avalanche as Scott Martin’s golden falsetto fantasizes about breaking away...."
"...Like a fusion soundcheck by Thundercat at 11:30am on a hillside an hour outside of town in a medieval city; a 4-6pm back-to-back at BookPeople with Keith Morris and Waterloo Records with Alejandro Escovedo; all crowned by Adele herself on Red River. Boyfrndz included...."

"...Hip-hop duo Riders Against the Storm uplifted Auditorium Shores as direct support for Friday's Prince tribute; Austin country queen Sunny Sweeney warmed up for Garth Brooks by generating fan-girl excitement, debuting ace new disc Trophy, and generally poking fun at her genre by instructing fans to edit pictures making her look extra tan and thin; and Shakey Graves got backed by Questlove and company at the annual Roots & Friends Jam on Saturday.

"...Filling out the bill are different lineups each night, handpicked by the band, including one special, surprise guest. This night: the noisy bashing pop of Boyfrndz; Big Big Love, tuneful youths who prove the indie rock revolution has reached deep into Mexico City; the Bright Light Social Hour, one of Austin's most seasoned psychedelic offerings; and Daniel's (and hipper Austin's) favorite punk band, A Giant Dog..."
