Austinites Obscured by Echoes used to be know as the Hi-Tones but with a new sound came a new name, as well. The band wrote, recorded, engineered, produced and released their most recent album release, Black Matter Manifesto. These locals have a sound that takes you back a couple of decades. While they trigger memories of music from the late, colorful ’60s. Obscured by Echoes have a bit of a deeper psychedelic sound though.
Obscured Echoes, consisting of Johnny Flores, Aly Beaujon, Kyle Abrams, Gary Delgado, Daniel Hinojosa are all from and still based in our beloved Austin. Each person from this quintet bring something different and great to the table that has created this wickedly trippy band that makes you feel like you’re acid tripping. From Black Matter Manifesto, “Electric Funeral” is a track that stands out for it’s incredible guitar work from Gary Delgado and Kyle Abrams. A lot of their songs make you feel like you’re listening to a 2013 version of Pink Floyd; which in my book, means you’ve got to be doing something right.
