Last weekend–while shamelessly feeding my curiosity and hunger for new discoveries in the Austin music scene–in the midst of my nocturnal haze, I came across blues and rock ‘n’ roll band Cause In Effect.
“We are a very new group but are weathered
young musicians with what we believe to be a great formula.”
The 8-month-old, Austin-based trio–composed of Josh Googins (guitar, vocals), Z Lynch (bass), Spencer Garland (percussion)–cleverly fed my curiosity with one of their tweets that read, “existentialism is our name, and music is our game. ” Everyone knows existentialism is the only thing I like, so they got my attention. I proceeded to listening closely, I plummeted into absolute fascination. I was impressed, which, quite frankly, never happens.
“The name Cause In Effect is a play on, Cause and Effect,
referring to the eastern philosophical concept of non-duality.”
I instantly fell in love with their blues/rock ‘n’ roll/ progressive-pop-rock influenced mastered sound, which I eventually discovered was recorded in Chris “Frenchie” Smith‘s recording studio, The Bubble. I can always trust that everything that comes out of Frenchie’s studio. Their sound is very together, very complex–a gourmet meal of sounds–; they sound so mastered that I’d even consider them radio quality. Without a doubt, however, they’re going somewhere, and it is only a matter of time. I have the full intention to figuring out more on them. Brace yourself.
This post is the first of a series that I’ve been meaning to partake in for about 2,000 years. Enjoy and agree that I’m right about everything.
