The Young Mothers, Little Mazarn, Food Group


The Young Mothers return to Beerland, Texas on Tuesday, 18 September — since their appearance earlier this year at Austin Jukebox #11 and the release of their sophomore album Morose (out now on Self Sabotage Records), they have toured Europe & Canada.

Joining them are the psychedelic Food Group and dream folk Little Mazarn.

• The Young Mothers •
"[O]n stage they appear like a gang I would not buy a used car from. But they act like a star team together. There is energy that is at the forefront of the music, both in Taylor's rap & pocket-trumpet games, Horne's guitar games, Gonzalez's vibraphone games and the entire package. [...] This band, with Håker Flaten's piss, as the whole concert through [he is] fighting an intense battle with both the electric and acoustic bass, became exactly what such a festival needed as a finishing touch. Tougher and more energetic jazz in close relation to indie rock, free improvisation and groove-based music, [something] you simply do not get in today's musical landscape." – from review of The Young Mothers live at Nattjazz 2018 by Salt peanuts

• Food Group •
"Austin psych-rock explorers Food Group blend genres and incorporate acoustic sounds to make reflective experimental music. Formed in 2013, the band consists of singer & guitarist Eric Lyday, keyboardist Wiley Greene, bassist Luis Rangel, and drummer Jeff Olson — with a rotating group of friends that provide additional instrumentation and fill in every now and then. Food Group’s sound has evolved since their early single-microphone demos, incorporating elements of chamber pop, folk & electronic music. Their more recent efforts have been sonically darker & more progressive while still touching on the themes of love, loss & spirituality that are present in their earlier work. " – Harold Urteaga, KUTX 98.9

• Little Mazarn •
"[A] linchpin to a number of local bands, [...] it wasn't until 2015 when she began performing her own songs at the encouragement of fellow alternative folk artists Ethan Azarian and Ralph White. Little Mazarn's eponymous EP last December captured the quiet, personal pull of Verrill's songwriting, opening meditative expanses in the patient space between her banjo and [Jeff] Johnston's saw." – Doug Freeman, Austin Chronicle
