A Giant Dog / The Ripe / Street Dads

A Giant Dog 11
Imagine The Righteous Brothers abandoned their smooth, melodic crooning and screamed into the microphones like wild beasts. Imagine they hadn’t been laid in a while, couldn’t get dates to the high school dance, and lived in Spring, TX in 2003. This is how it looked when Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen got their start, under the moniker “Youth in Asia,” a cover band that played school functions.
The Ripe 10
The Ripe has sprung forth from it’s roots in power-pop, folk, garage, and psychedelia while still being nurtured by contemporary sounds and influences. Born in 2007, the Austin, Texas quartet consists of Jake Garcia on guitar and vocals, Gian Ortiz on bass and vocals, and Nick Yaklin on drums. Cultivated by the energy and hooks of power-pop favorites such as Big Star and The Nerves, and consciously trying to bring to real life the Beatles White Album, these guys also feed upon equal doses of Forever Changes era LOVE and The Kinks at their Village Green best. They are but saplings. But students of rock and roll will want to take a stroll through this forest.
