Quin Galavis Track Premiere
Dark songwriter lets a little light in
DAILY Music  June 12, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...Less than 10 months after releasing his melancholic magnum opus, My Life in Steel and Concrete, emotionally intense songwriter Quin Galavis returns with The Battery Line, his personal pop apex. Don’t worry, it’s not as uplifting as it sounds...."

Quin Galavis Turns Darkness Into His Magnum Opus
Obfuscating the narrative between fiction and lived experience on My Life in Steel and Concrete
Music Story  August 25, 2016, by Greg Beets
"...Even so, when the doors close and the lights go down inside the Eastside DIY venue, the temperature of the repurposed warehouse quickly becomes stultifying. As Quin Galavis begins a three-part multimedia presentation of his new double album, My Life in Steel and Concrete, the sensation of drowning in hot, stale air only adds to the weight of his emotional broadsides...."

Record Review: Quin Galavis
My Life in Steel and Concrete (Super Secret)
Music Story  August 25, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...On his ambitious, wide-release sophomore solo album, Quin Galavis lays bare his insecurities, fears, and existential ponderings through 20 thematic shards of literature. While varied in plot, the emotionally raw vignettes stack into a spirit quest about understanding the golden moments of life and death, dream and reality, and boldly facing it all without excuse..."

Quin Galavis
Music Review  June 22, 2017, by Tim Stegall
"...A dead-eyed visage staring out grimly from the cover of last year's triumphant double album My Life in Steel and Concrete quick-sketched an instant portrait of Quin Galavis, Dead Space/False Idol member and young, tortured artist. The Battery Line opener "Garden Wall" churns grimier than anything on Steel and Concrete or the lo-fi twang of solo bow Should Have Known You in 2011, dirty guitars punctuated by fuzz bursts that quickly indulge a Nineties alt-rock manic depression built on a muted, minor key verse with a louder, major key chorus..."

Music Column  February 25, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Quin Galavis completes his episodic Beerland residency, "Four Cycles of Atrophy," this Friday with a final chapter: "Desultory." Each week, the Dead Space/False Idol frontman performs new solo songs intertwined with scripted drama performed by actress Cassie Fitzgerald – who worshiped a candlelit altar and taunted Galavis' artistic aspirations during last week's gutsy performance...."

"...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. Meanwhile, Spoon piled locals onto their three-night stand at the old Emo's, including A Giant Dog, Quin Galavis, Boyfrndz, Walker Lukens, and Sweet Spirit...."

Playback: Grohl Call
Nirvana drummer, Foo Fighter, and documentarian Dave Grohl passes it on
Music Column  November 20, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Without warning, elusive local trio Nazi Gold ambushed Austin with another blighted slab of teeth-grinding doom-punk last week. That release, a four-song vinyl entitled Climbing the Tower, occasioned recent appearances at Trailer Space and Cheer Up Charlie's, where the triad of Swans percussionist Thor Harris, Dead Space singer Quin Galavis, and Flesh Lights bassist Jeremy Steen converged in a flash of avant-garde pounding, polluted distortion, and blood-drunk poetry...."
