On the show this time, it's the unsung legends of post-rock — Mexico City’s Austin TV.

Austin TV formed in 2001, influenced by post rock sounds like Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky. Unlike the former they are primarily instrumental with the only words you hear provided by samples. They are heavier than the latter, though equally saturnine. They have not released an album or really been performing live in over 12 years, but now that they are playing again — they rocked the 2023 Vive Latino festival — we are holding out hope for a new record. Their most recent full-length is Caballeros del Albedrío, available on Terrícolas Imbéciles Records and Bandcamp. They perform in masks — in accordance with the motto — “No importa tu cara, importas tú.” It’s not your face that’s important — it’s you.

Recorded 03/15/2023.
