When the lyrics of an album open up with “Burn your Bibles and Torahs” you know shit’s probably about to get a little dark. And with the Austin-based gypsy punk band The Schisms, the vibe of their new album Moon isn’t so much dark like macabre, more mischievous and spooky and … a little sexy.
Vibes the group are able to articulate across nine tracks of rock ‘n’ roll that teeter across a spectrum of genres include straight-forward-bluesy American rock in the vein of Queens of the Stone Age and Misfits-inspired horror-punk and rockabilly. The record is pretty awesome and you can guarantee they’ll be playing a few of the new tracks at The Mix this Saturday.
Saturday, September 9, With Lloronas, Rivers Want, The Cold Tonys, Free, 9pm, The Mix, (210) 735-1313, themixsa.com.
