The Offbeats Rock!

The Off Beats Standards Cover
Dig San Antonio's very own The OffBeats!

These guys have been around for a while, released a few singles, a few of which apprear on the latest "Standards", about as close as you can get to an Offbeats Greatest Hits (Vol 1, I hope!).

Press play and dig some pure homegrown power pop with a very clean and tight Albini inspired sonic vibe throughout.

I couldn't find any cover art so I made my own based on what it sounds like to me - kind of a head boppin', B grade, 4AD, Spoony and power-poppy with an energetic homegrown gritty and oh so soulful Taco Land vibe. Very nice and goes perfect with an ice cold 16 oz Lone Star on a hot and muggy San Antonio Saturday night...

Check out Pokeadot, Smoking Gun and the awesome Don't Leave Me Alone, all available for download right here: The OffBeats!

The Offbeats are just one more reason to be proud of our awesome San Antonio local music scene.

Make It Louder!
