Once in a blue moon (or about every 6-8 years) Austin produces a rock band that achieves national/international fame. The current cycle of famedom includes bands such as Ghostland Observatory and Spoon. Ghostland has a propensity for the dramatic on stage with lights, costumes and action. While Spoon's laidback sound seems to blend in more with the laidback nature of this town.

Groovy, funky, bluesy; call it what you will. However you characterize them, they are solid. "Don't You Evah" is a extremely melodic (borderline methodical) track with a very indie feel to it. It's good stuff. Diplo's mix puts a much darker edge to this somewhat drowsy track. The bassline added to the track gives it more of a dubstep feel if it weren't for the very club-sounding bass drum. Listen to both if you get a chance.
