Technicolor Hearts

Chamber Wave quartet Inner Ecstasy performs tomorrow with Young Lovers and more

Musicans have always strived to capture the primacy of human experience — some using tried and true approaches while others play with the strange and eccentric. But for the chamber group Inner Ecstasy, communicating felt truths often involves balancing the classical with the experimental, harnessing the provocative spirits of music's golden age and its avant-garde. Isaac Takeuchi, Vicki Scotto, and brothers Steve and Gabriel Armenta pull from influences spanning centuries apart — from Johann Sebastian Bach and Philip Glass to The Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth — wielding the harmonious and the dissonant to chronicle the voyage of raw emotion.

After a first show at the inaugural LAB•FEST in 2013, Inner Ecstasy signed to DIY label Noise Met Sound, where they released their first EP and went on to play with acts like Liphemra and Bür Gür. The group has been strong advocates of the DIY music/arts community, supporting venues like the LA Fort and LAST Projects in the past years.

Inner Ecstasy plays an all-ages show tomorrow at the Ave. 50 Studio in Highland Park with Sean Pineda, Voice on Tape, Austin's dream pop noir duo Technicolor Hearts, and Los Angeles post-rock Young Lovers. Listen to the haunting "Ascension" below and come to the show tomorrow; doors open at 6 PM. - Ryan Mo

Church and Walker

Maybe you don't go there much, but we recommend a trip to Central Presbyterian Church tomorrow night at 8, where you can check out Chelsea Wolfe and Technicolor Hearts.  Heavenly music at a sacred venue, what's not to like?  Find out more here.

Well, we can't be everywhere at once, so good thing the good folks at T. Cannon pointed out the waaay cool Walker Lukens vid for "Dear Someone", a cut off his latest LP, "Devoted", due out April 2.

You may ask yourself: Howdidtheydothat?

"The film was provided by a company called The Impossible Project, a group of former Polaroid employees in the Netherlands who saved the last Polaroid production plant from being shut down and now produce film for vintage cameras that would otherwise have been obsolete. "

Artist of the Month Nominee Technicolor Hearts at the Beauty Ballroom June 30th

Corpus Christi, a song with some Texas love in its title by Texas electro-rockers Technicolor Hearts, starts off with a juicy, thumping bass which is quickly accompanied by a duo of dissonant piano and spacy female vocals. The simple but tight drums come in a bar later to help the bass hold this one down, but it those airy, attention-grabbing vocals and keys layered on top that make this song what it is, and these guys what they are for that matter. Not afraid to experiment, and to do it big. Saturday June 30th they will be bringing their talents to Austin’s Beauty Ballroom for a can’t miss night.
