Watch & Listen
There's no slowing Sweet Spirit singer Sabrina Ellis down. In
addition to fronting two extremely busy rock bands (Sweet Spirit and A
Giant Dog), she recently recorded and toured behind a new collaboration
with Har Mar Superstar called Heart Bones, and starred in a campy Austin
stage production of Batman Returns Returns as none other than the Dark
Having been less active in the past few months, it appears Sweet Spirit
will return to Ellis' forefront for 2019. The band recently completed
tracking a new full-length record with engineer Stuart Sikes (Modest
Mouse, Jack White) that will be mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips,
Spoon) and ready for release by year's end. The band is also hitting the
road hard, covering the entire U.S. this Spring with a batch of new
songs and the same high octane performances they've become known for.
Colfax Speed Queen
Once born out of the crystal clear Rocky Mountain water, Colfax Speed Queen quickly dirtied their bones with distortion, tremolo, and plenty of slap back reverb just like their heroes from the 60's and 70's. CSQ is far from a revival band though. They're an original breed of garage, punk, rock, and surf. CSQ is not about going fast. They're about being hopped up and strung out on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
GO FEVER is an Austin-based band fronted by Australian songwriter Acey Monaro with Benjamin Burdick, Keith Lough, Josh Merry and Jim Campo.
Their debut LP, engineered and produced by Danny Reisch (Shearwater, Other Lives, Delta Spirit) was released on February 24th 2017 and is now available for streaming or purchase through itunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.
The band is currently recording their sophomore album at Jim Eno’s home studio, Public Hifi.
"Go Fever's self-titled debut proves Acey Monaro isn't just one of Austin's best songwriters, but an heir to the likes of Elvis Costello" - OVLD
'Go Fever manages to form a niche within their genre. They evoke the qualities of established, beloved bands without ever sounding hackneyed. It feels like the middle ground between Courtney Barnett and the newest Tennis album." - WHWS 105.7fm
