Sotomayor is the dynamic brother-sister duo of Paulina and Raul Sotomayor. This past summer they embarked on their most intense and lengthiest tour across Europe and the U.S., including a night in El Paso, TX at the Lowbrow Palace.
Shannon Lay has risen to fame as a member of the band, Feels. But her heavy, building-shaking riffs also have a soft side. Lay’s solo work has made listeners far and wide come to calm and tears with simple and soft melodies. She ended summer with tour dates with indie artist, Dent May, including a stop in El Paso, TX at The Monarch.
The eclectic Austin band began the anniversary tour for their third album Hello, Avalanche in El Paso, TX, at the Lowbrow Palace. The Octopus Project are well-known for their unique sounds that sound like the music Nintendo plumber Mario would concoct if he gave us his pipe dreams and ditched Princess Peach to become a composer for sci-fi films. Hello, Avalanche is a prime example of the emotions of glee and wonder their music invokes. The high zipping sound that Yvonne Lambert’s theremin leads through the Octopus Project’s music is what it must feel like skipping through a field of sunflowers whilst being shocked by static; relaxing in a strangely metallic way.
