La Snacks Plays Wednesday Night at Red 7
On the surface, when you check out the music of Austin band La Snacks, it might seem irregularly constructed and kind of frenzied. Dig deeper, and you discover a lot of thought goes into the arrangements. There’s a melody to the madness.
Their 2009 EP Newfangled reminded some reviewers of college radio circa mid- and late-90′s, in the vein of Archers of Loaf, maybe even early Weezer in some parts. There’s a sort of chaotic nature about their approach, but those moves are calculated more craftily than that, and in turn, that’s what makes it so cool. It’s all those erratic motions, with quirky, ever-shifting lyrics delivered by vocalist Robert Segovia, that bind it all together.
