Peter Blackstock’s picks
1 p.m. Sir Female (Tito’s): A few of many years into the operate of this band that began as Kelsey Wilson’s aspect-job to the beloved indie team Wild Little one, we’re acquiring the perception that Sir Female may possibly be pulling a Shinyribs, akin to when Kevin Russell’s recent band in the long run overshadowed and outlasted his lengthy-jogging outfit the Gourds. It is as well early to tell for positive, but for now, just revel in the soulful pop vein she’s mining with this sprawling ensemble.
2:20 p.m. Surfaces (Honda): Probably the major band at any time to occur out of University Station, the duo of Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki delivers social gathering-hearty pop grooves that have linked sufficient for the band to sell out a current Stubb’s demonstrate. They bought so a great deal focus for their early music “24/7/365” and “Sunday Ideal” that no much less than Elton John joined them on very last year’s solitary “Find out to Fly.”
3:30 p.m. Katie Pruitt (BMI): The Nashville-by means of-Atlanta Americana singer-songwriter had just produced her acclaimed debut album “Expectations” in early 2020 when the pandemic hit. But she’d by now turned heads in Austin with are living performances all through South by Southwest and in other places. Hope Pruitt to be a stable draw at the smaller BMI phase, which commonly features worthy up-and-coming acts.
4:30 p.m. Phoebe Bridgers (Lady Fowl): Nominated for finest new artist at the Grammys before this year (she dropped to fellow ACL Fest act Megan Thee Stallion), the Los Angeles indie singer-songwriter is a single of the festival’s best mounting stars. She’s unveiled just two albums, but both are of a high quality that suggests Bridgers is a prolonged-term job artist. She’ll also tape the “Austin City Limits” Tv set show on Oct. 7.
5:20 p.m. Missio (VRBO): After breaking massive out of the gate with the one “Middle Fingers” a few decades ago, the Austin electronica duo of Matthew Brue and David Butler rapidly broadened their horizons with the spectacular album “The Darker the Weather / The Improved the Man” in 2019. This year’s “Skeletons,” the third in a series of EPs, contains an abbreviated recast of the Flaming Lips’ “Do You Recognize.”
6:20 p.m. Modest Mouse (Honda): One particular of the Pacific Northwest’s best-acknowledged indie-rock bands for nearly three decades, Modest Mouse returned this summer season with “The Golden Casket,” its to start with album in six many years. The lineup has shuffled a bit across the a long time, but singer-guitarist Isaac Brock stays the band’s guiding resourceful pressure.
7:30 p.m. Dayglow (VRBO): It appears to be substantial to me that among the the a few of us who generate regularly about a broad range of music for the Statesman/Austin360, all of us enjoy Dayglow. Sloan Struble’s pop explorations even though at the University of Texas have exploded into a full-blown occupation that has brought him from a little-phase overall look at ACL Fest 2019 to this a great deal better-profile slot.
Deborah Sengupta Stith’s picks
12:50 p.m. Amber Mark (Lady Chicken): A smoky voice, smooth R&B grooves seasoned with splashes of bossa nova and hints of disco, and the most sensual cover of “Thong Song” you will ever listen to. Appears like every little thing you require to get started your Saturday correct.
1:35 p.m. Yendry (BMI): With sly sexiness and a voice that aches with emotion, the Dominican Italian singer is on the verge of a world breakout.
2 p.m. Moziah (Tito’s): Sunny hip-hop and R&B abundant with unexpected thrives and soaring soulful vocals.
3:20 p.m. AG Club (Miller Lite): The Bay Spot hip-hop group flexes their crew power with models that operate the gamut from melodic and introspective to vaguely menacing.
4:20 p.m. Phoebe Bridgers (Girl Fowl): The folk-rock standout’s established falls smack dab in the center of a comprehensive day of female artists on the skyline stage. What a time to be alive.
5:20 p.m. Gina Chavez (BMI): A jubilant Latin pop interlude.
6:20 p.m. Doja Cat (Lady Chicken): Soaring from the bovine basement of the internet to come to be a chart-topping pop star, the singer/rapper’s fantastic 2021 release “Planet Her” is a Lil Nas X-amount argument for the prolonged-phrase viability of viral sensations.
7:20 p.m. Dayglow (Vrbo): The genial pop wunderkind and Fred Rogers superfan can make the upbeat therapy pop your pandemic-battered soul wants.
8:30 p.m. Billie Eilish (Woman Hen): The defiant wordplay of “Therefore I Am” and the rage releasing climax of “Happier Than Ever” will overshadow the downtempo, introspective tunes on the pop superstar’s new album in an ACL Fest set for the ages.
Eric Webb’s picks
12:05 p.m. Sun Space (BMI): Beach-rock vibes for your Friday night time hangover. A small Best Coastline meets Hunx & His Punx meets Parquet Courts, but on muscle mass relaxers. Weekend 1 only.
12:50 p.m. Frances Forever (Honda): Speaking of solar, listening to the dreamy Massachusetts mind powering the viral strike “Space Girl” is a excellent way to hold easing into Saturday.
2:20 p.m. girl in red (Girl Hen): In the immortal words and phrases of Billy Eichner, let’s go lesbians! Norwegian singer-songwriter Marie Ulven Ringheim’s lush tunes have become synonymous on the world wide web with queer romance (and heartache), and they go much tougher than they seem to at to start with blush.
3:20 p.m. Remi Wolf (T-Mobile): Liiiterally dare you to hear to any song by this California funk-pop trickster and not smile from ear to ear and then again to the other ear again. (Sorry, gross.) Listen to “Monte Carlo” for a flavor of the funky-funny sauce.
4:20 p.m. Phoebe Bridgers (Lady Hen): We all know what 4:20 signifies … time to openly sob in a park, proper. With a dedicated fan army of “Pharbz” supporting her, Bridgers has scaled the indie-rock heap in a short get. “Motion Sickness” and “Kyoto” are the bangers, but the slower album cuts kinda make the circumstance that Bridgers is her generation’s Joni Mitchell. (Is that Ok to say? We’ll say it.)
5:20 p.m. Gina Chavez (BMI): Spend your early night with a fearless expertise from correct listed here in Austin. Weekend 1 only.
6:20 p.m. Doja Cat (Woman Chicken): Does any one generate with the variety of spectacularly unhinged wit that Doja does these days? Almost certainly, but they are not chart-toppers who consider over TikTok each individual time they breathe, like Ms. Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini.
7:20 p.m. Dayglow (Vrbo): What else can I say about Sloan Struble’s sunny, good indie pop that we haven’t by now created in these internet pages? The hometown hero’s “Fuzzybrain” created him a increasing star, and this year’s “Harmony House” is a single of the greatest albums of the calendar year, an effervescent and clever-prior to-his-time collection of tracks that go away you crying on the dancefloor.
8:30 p.m. Billie Eilish (Girl Bird): Observing the reigning empress of all preferred music at ACL Fest in 2019 was like viewing a snake charmer in action, besides the snakes had been all sweaty kids in a park. Honestly, type of fearful to see how substantially her electric power has grown by now.
