All this week, Rocks Off's daily MP3 will spotlight the best and brightest of the local bands gracing this weekend's two-day Free Press Summer Fest indie blowout at Eleanor Tinsley Park. Free Press Houston
has assembled quite the lineup, with out-of-towners like Of Montreal, Broken Social Scene and Prince Paul headlining the weekend.
After a national mini-summer tour this past June and July, Houston's own prize-fighting Muhammidali (one name intact) came home to lay down a few demo tracks while they were still fresh from the road. The band then resumed its weekly gigging schedule around town.
The other night at Rudyard's, MA lead singer/guitarist John Zambrano informed Rocks Off that the night before, the band logged time with producer Chris Ryan at Dead City Sound with an eye toward a possible early-fall release - a release that Rocks Off will no doubt wear out. We could even wear out an MP3's for this band. Wait? Not possible? Try us...
Muhammadali is set to hit the Summer Fest stage at 2 p.m. Saturday. For now, dig into this demo track, called "Someday Sunday."
No doubt it will sound even juicier in Ryan's able production hands.
