    The The colloquialism "caddywhompus" is defined by such adjectives as "uneven," "crooked" and "out of whack"—a list which could, in some instances, allude to the mind-bending sounds of the experimental noise-pop band who bears said name but whom can otherwise be described thus: spot on.  Song structures alternate between sweet psychedelic indie ballads to the most intense, ear-splitting of noise-driven crescendos.

    They have two EPs worth of material under their belts, as well as a new full length, all of which—true to their D.I.Y. roots—were composed and recorded themselves, and can be downloaded for free at communityrecords.org Their full-length [Remainder], released on New Orleans-based Community Records, has proven itself a more focused and cohesive representation of their unique sound.

    Carrots is the debut album from Young Mammals. Recorded in their hometown with producer and Grammy Award-winner Steve Christensen, Carrots shows a real sophistication within the pop realm. Already featured on the Urban Outfitters blog, opener and single “Confetti” serves as the perfect initiation. The Daily Texan wrote, “The marriage of traditional pop with experimental noise makes for arrangements that always surprise.” 

    The Free Press proclaims, “This is one Houston band that – high gas prices or not – needs to get on the road, take it to the people, and show them how it’s done.”

    After his departure from Harvard Business School, Craig Hlavaty now spends his days tirelessly defending the merits of Lady Gaga and Slayer. The love child of Oliver Stone and Lester Bangs, Craig makes a living as the assistant music editor of the Houston Press, or does it make a living as him?

    Scott H. Biram, a self proclaimed ‘Dirty Old One Man Band’ successfully, and sometimes violently, lashes together blues, hillbilly and country precariously to raucous punk and godless metal. Biram ain’t no candy-ass singer/songwriter either, sweetly strumming songs about girls with big eyes and dusty highways. HELL NO!!! His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks from his 1959 Gibson guitar and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.Years of non-stop touring have honed his assault to a fine edge; his wide-eyed throw downs in the First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism routinely lead giddy followers to a fiery baptism.Scott H. Biram won’t die. On May 11th, 2003, one month after being hit head-on by an 18-wheeler at 75 MPH, he took the stage at The Continental Club in Austin, TX in a wheel chair – I.V. still dangling from his arm. With 2 broken legs, a broken foot, a broken arm and 1 foot less of his lower intestine, Biram unleashed his trademark musical wrath.

    Entertaining atypical audiences fits squarely into Nobunny’s career plan. “I originally wanted to be a rabbit Elvis impersonator, then wanted to be a children’s performer,” he explains. “I still might do both, though I kind of am both. We can play to any crowd, young or old, PG or R.” Which explains why one finds playful props like foam novelty ears and dolls at his merch table as well as lines in his lyrics like, “This little piggy wants to get an erection.” Though he now lives in Oakland on the rare occasions when he’s off tour, the mysterious self-dubbed “half-man, half-jackalope” grew up in Chicago’s Ravenswood.
