Pocket Sounds is a project started by Austin-based multi-instrumentalist Mike St.Clair. He has worked for over a decade as a side man with numerous bands including Okkervil River, The Polyphonic Spree and White Denim. In addition to being an outlet for his songwriting, Mike uses Pocket Sounds (formerly Saint Clair) as a palette for exploring sonic textures and arranging techniques. As a session musician, he has created horn arrangements for many notable Texas artists including Okkervil River, Andy Pickett, PR Newman, My Jerusalem, Monk Parker and The Midnight Stroll. Sometimes performing solo or duo with live looping, Mike has begun collaborating with an ensemble of some of Austin’s finest musicians to create a more lush and interactive performance.

**** Mountain Time, 11:00 PM****

Mountain Time (formerly known as Zookeeper) is the home of Chris Simpson (formerly of Mineral, and The Gloria Record) and his songs.

**** Royal Forest, 9:00 PM****

Austin's Royal Forest are not big believers in static sound, though they do appreciate the sound of static. Experimental across media---using analog tape loops in recordings and live at shows, for example---the band strives to reinvent their songs in new ways.

Lately this experimentation manifests itself in field recordings. Royal Forest has made songs in a single-prop airplane above the Texas hill country, inside a WWII submarine in Galveston, and in a lightning storm among the Monahans sand dunes. Not content to be labeled a studio band or live act, the band pushes the limits of composition, using whim and on-the-fly audio manipulation as songwriting tools. Experimentation is their evolutionary engine.

For all the geeky shit, Royal Forest is awfully listenable. The loops and field recordings only enhance their memorable hooks and positive energy. The band's dedication to DIY is not only impressive, it imbues their records, videos, and live shows with infective charm.

Royal Forest's latest album, Spillway, casts a surreal shadow on Americana. It was recorded to tape by the band and mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Spillway is available July 9th via King Electric Record Company.
