Otis the Destroyer / 2pm / Sunday

With a name like Otis the Destroyer, you might expect this ascendant Austin four-piece to brandish a punishing and desolating sound. The band however, is actually a refreshing presentation of crunchy riffs, big drums and damn-near-pretty pop singing. This is a rowdy, loud garage rock band, but without an over-abundance of fuzz or confoundingly drowned vocals. Otis the Destroyer's music is loose and delivers a liberating sensation of aimlessness without ever feeling sloppy or disposable. In other words, the group has managed to find the sweet spot, elusive to so many, between creative abandon and purposeful precision. — James Courtney
