The staff at the Boston Phoenix
sure seems to think so. They chose San Antonio's own all-ladyfied power trio as top "new" act in the Lone Star State in their annual Independents Day: Best New Bands in America
feature. According to the article, GIAC
answers the question, “What would it sound like if Lush caroused with Patsy Cline in a West Texas saloon?”
The Phoenix's taste in Texas music (not to mention their knowledge of state geography) is up for debate â?? they chose the 13th Floor Elevators and Roy Orbison as Texas' best acts ever â?? but their choice in last year's poll was kick ass ATX band White Denim, so they obviously know something.
Suck it Austin. Suck it dry.
