Eight Gigs: Tele Novella
Sat., August 6, 8:30 p.m., The Hideaway Bar & Grill, $8
Austin, Texas-based band Tele Novella’s forthcoming album, House of Souls, is set for release in September, and its single, “Heavy Balloon,” is a dreamy, pop-driven gem. Vocalist Natalie Gordon also happens to be a Sacramento native and former member of the garage-rock duo Agent Ribbons, while members Jason Chronis and Matt Simon bring the indie-rock influence from their time spent in Voxtrot. The result is a sound that dances along the lines of psych with a ’60s Nancy Sinatra appeal sprinkled with grim undertones and laced-in reverb. 2565 Franklin Boulevard, www.facebook.com/telenovellamusic.
