"...This weekend, Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs cram into Beerland for local imprint Super Secret Records’ Austin Jukebox series. Dubbed the Coed Jail tour, the pairing of Cleveland rock legends marks the return of Rocket after an incendiary Emo’s show in 2003, and the first time Ubu’s graced a Lone Star stage in two decades...."
"...Exactly one year after their arrival on the scene, Plax, an Austin quartet spewing a revolutionary mixture of post-punk, basement hardcore, and outsider rock, unleashes debut full-length Clean Feeling on Aug. 11 through local imprint Super Secret Records...."
"...I guess I like the chaos and the thrill of it. Where you just go blind into something, full speed, as fast as you can go." Spontaneous Records..."
"...In 2007, Richard Lynn, Super Secret Records CEO, told me: "You know how sometimes you see a show and it makes you happy to be exactly where you are? You don't want to be anywhere else or doing anything else; you're convinced there's no better place in the world than where you are at that very moment?..."
"...At this juncture in January, his local psych trio Evil Triplet readies the release of its molten, double-album debut Otherworld on homegrown Super Secret Records. Co-produced by the bandleader and Austin's longtime audio midwife Rob Halverson at Sonic Ranch Studios outside of El Paso a year ago, its dense acid shriek gained international buzz via internet-leaked tracks "Star Ladder" and "Get a Job," the latter a fleshed-out leftover from Marsh's Eighties/Nineties industrial outfit Miracle Room..."

"...For the first time in its 30-year history, Encore Records looks spotless: clean floors, bright lights, no casual smudges or debris coating the racks and registers. At its new East Sixth location, its been reborn, reupholstered, and reclaimed..."
"..."I've got zero musical talent myself, but I've always loved music and had friends in the scene since '95 -- the Motards, Chumps, et cetera," notes Lynn, founder of Super Secret Records. "I saw Manikin that night, realized that they'd never put out a record on their own, and decided this would be a way to get into the middle of the scene."..."
"...The slow, dusty back-porch blues of the title track and "Happily in Disbelief" crackle and pop like Smithsonian Folkways recordings from the 1950s. "We Both Know" adds woozy organ, guitarist Ryan Sambol's slurred vocals consistently in the red, but the real nugget here is the scorching, garage-bopper "Art for Art's Sake." Yellow Fever trades in the simplistic K Records bounce of its infectious debut for the psychedelic sounds of Jefferson Airplane on the local trio's "Culver City" candy-yellow 7-inch..."
"...How cool was it witnessing the author of "7 & 7 Is" Arthur Lee snarl his supreme Love song at S.F.'s Great American Music Hall last month? As Joe Cool as the white-wedding vinyl of the Ends' "New Rome" 45 on Dirtnap Records, which only pressed 100 copies. The Austin punk quintet's debut disc last year, Sorry, XOXOXO, was essentially a singles gather-all, and it had teeth thanks to jagged edges like this one..."
"...On one hand, Petro, bassist Kana Harris, and drummer Jay Dilick attack their instruments with brutality. The result resembles the chain-drive power assault of Black Flag's SST Records roster..."

"...Four-song, red vinyl 7-inch on local singles flagship Super Secret Records introduces Iowa's Dominic Rabalais, one of three non-ATX acts released by the locally loyal label, who explodes like a Matador Records compilation that's corralled lo-fi Elephant Six euphoria ("So Long Silly Rabbit"), MBV sheen ("A Song for Revenge"), and strum/stomp ("F.T.W.")...."
"...Technical ecstasy, and it's already a collector's item. Colored vinyl has that effect on us, so the antique, tulip-lamp orange of the Kodiak's new 45 on local label Super Secret Records was a winner even before the spin cycle..."
