The Rotten Mangoes have done their rock ‘n’ roll homework, studying up on the guitar hook basics and tambourine adornments for their self-titled 2014 EP. Like A Hard Day’s Night Fab Four through a filter of bong-ripped air, the Austin duo cuts through three-minute tunes with an appreciation for simple and loose-collar pop. In their tight lyrical structures, singer Cristian Sigler waxes on the typical fare of contemporary psych (see the bedroom bummer of “I Left My Room”) to more whacked-out questions on the use of leafy greens (“What’s all the lettuce for?” he wonders on “Jools Sharé”). To offset these compact rhymes, The Rotten Mangoes
dig into DMT-short and equally intense instrumental sections.

Originally from Louisiana, The Lochness Mobsters made the hajj over to the garage rock holy land of Austin, where they fit in quite snugly into the busy scene. On tunes like “She Bit Meh,” the trio can’t quite shake their roots, retaining the welcome sloppiness of a strong Cajun accent. With Flower Jesus, Fish Brain, DJ Proper Yarn. $3, 9pm, Hi-Tones, 621 E. Dewey, 785-8777
