Editorial Review

Austin-based La Snacks sound like they might be slackers. That's not a bad thing, mind you. The band's casual songs aren't packed with effects or a bevy of sounds to try to convince you of its members' extremely diverse record collections. Some clever turns of phrase and a slinky guitar line with just the right amount of distortion is enough to make the songs memorable. Sometimes the best way to show off is to show that you don't need to show off. Typefighter, the Ionosphere Club and Transmography make it a full night at the Velvet Lounge.
