The Wolf

Artist bio

It's alive and well in Austin. Psych rock never truly left, actually. The roots here in Texas are particularly deep: 13th Floor Elevators, Vulcan Gas Company, and Shivas Headband are a few standouts. Psych might have experienced a dormancy period, but it returned with a vengeance, slightly reshaped by todays artists from a modern standpoint, but remaining true to the original ragas and drones for the most part. The Wolf is one stand-out example, leaning more toward the garage-rock end of the spectrum. These psych bandidos from hell work the classic vibes on their album Strange Flowers, their first full-length release following their self-titled 2011 EP, with plenty of guitar fuzz and waves of heavy sound engulfing your ears and your mind.
