Dance into the 4th of July weekend with new stuff from 4 of Austin’s best dance-electronic bands. [FREE MUSIC DOWNLOADS]

2010 July 2

It’s the 4th of July weekend, and it’s time to celebrate freedom and beer! And nothing goes with fireworks like some good booty shaking music. So to help you get into the groove, we wanted to share new music videos from 2 of Austin-area dance acts PLUS new tracks from 2 more Austin-based dance acts. Get it: 2 + 2 = 4th of July!!

On a side note: This lil’ dillo is proud that the Austin dance-electro scene is going off like fireworks!!

Freshmillions - “The Helicopter”

Austin’s dance roots band Freshmillions is pretty impressive. [Check out Freshmillions' Geoff Earle on RoA] This video was shot on the Electronic Aquatic Club‘s boat party last month.

Candi and the Stangers - “Tetsu”

This is a great psychedelic/electro-pop band that I think we will hear more of in 2010! Sophisticated sounds. Ethereal vocals. Great video:

Auto Body - “Evil Kneivel”

Auto Body is by far, one of the best big-beat, electronic bands in Austin. [Check out Auto Body's Tibaut Bowman on RoA]

We got this in our InBox last night-it’s that fresh:

Paperthreat - “Conveyor”

These guys just popped up on our radar about two weeks ago. Their vocalist kinda reminds me of Antony from Hercules and Love Affair with a strong early 80′s New York Noise/Post-Punk type sound. Love it.
