The Australian rockers Bandintexas are working towards the release of the ten track LP Pocket Full of Stone.

With a different sound to their regular fare Bandintexas demonstrate that there are often moments in life when music doesn’t need to provide deep cerebral thought process…
…Without a brightly coloured pair of brothel creepers on your feet before hitting play, you will only regret it part way through, as the rockabilly ring of Tea Time (available as stand alone single on bandcamp) steps through the room to an infectious double time, tautly tied, drum-skin that launches the listener on to the dance-floor.
The Australian rock quartet Bandintexas are due to release their début LP in September.
A long awaited follow up to the ABDC- EP release by the quartet who have revealed numerous tracks over the intervening years along with a plenitude of live appearances – Bandintexas is a band best enjoyed in lengthy session.
The most recent track to surface being Hey Daisy, which enters the room with a thumbed bass note, so there is little possibility it would escape my interest, with submerged pedals and hushed cymbal giving the opening phrases a ghostly presence prior to vocal joining in the bobbing thick string and it is only at a quarter of the way through the tad under four minutes that the song unfolds in to its full luminosity, yet were that opening to be extended even further the mind would not find itself wandering.
Having featured Bandintexas since mid 2014 I can with some confidence suggest this is their most impressive piece thus far in their journey as within Hey Daisy the quartet have been able to harness their raw energy, whilst not diluting any of the honesty, to deliver a soundtrack of emotional roller-coaster and I am looking forward to the album with considerable interest.
The Australian rock quartet Bandintexas last featured just over a year ago.
Within the past nine hours Bandintexas have made available one of their earlier tracks God Not God – which has not been previously released and it discovers a darker more confrontational style to their sound which has been tempered in the intervening years.
