101X Homegrown Live

The Mole People

"The Mole People describe themselves as 'psych punk,' and it's a fitting label for a band that mixes 'Nuggets' melodies with hardcore energy served on stage with a generous dose of sweat. A rhythm section with equal parts swing and fuzz gives them the forward drive of a sweet hot-rod, but there's also an odd romanticism to their greasy crooning that lends a demented 50's doo-wop element. They could play the house band in a drive-in movie about nuclear teenagers attacking the prom. Equally at home covering the Misfits as a 60's flower-power side, they're a rare Austin garage band that brings other elements to the table."
—Austin Music Weekly

"Fantastic, just energetic and soulful and absolutely insane"
—Laurie Gallardo, KUT Austin

"Go see them live and you'll pretty much have the best time ever."
—KVRX Austin 91.7 FM
