MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, Ohio
free, ages 21-up, 10pm

Tele Novella is sugar-crash dream-psych popsicle punch out of Austin, TX with members of Agent Ribbons and Voxtrot. Influenced by the nocturnal jungles of Os Mutantes and the lapeled, knee-socked smarts of Belle and Sebastian, the songwriting is sincere and evocative. In early 2014 they released the single version of ‘Trouble in Paradise’ on vinyl with American Laundromat Records right on the tail of the Wes Anderson tribute compilation, to which they contributed a contagious version of ‘Stephanie Says’ by the Velvet Underground. Now they’re releasing their first EP ‘Cosmic Dial Tone’ on Los Angeles Psych-Pop label Lolipop Records and will be logging a whole lot of tour dates this fall!

TELE NOVELLA in quotes:

“…Influenced by equal parts Nancy Sinatra and The Virgin Suicides, combining classic ’60s rhythms with macabre undertones.” -SPIN

“If the Austin-based band Tele Novella isn’t on your radar yet, it should be.” -USA TODAY

“The group is pretty sensational, creating some of the best pop music to come out of city, and dare I say, the world as a whole.” Austin Town Hall

“The delightful 60s pop sheen and head-bobbing, calliope-like rhythm lure the listener into a strange magical world, but by the end the merry-go-round starts to spin as the band slowly, and subtly, brings the full flower of the arrangement to bear.” KUTX making “Don’t Be A Stranger” their Song Of The Day

“…forges together the members vintage records together in one stylistic heap, for a real cool attitude sound.” IMPOSE

“Along with members of Agent Ribbons, the Austin-based group craft charming indie-pop — not unlike Voxtrot’s sunny 2007 self-titled LP — with an added hint of ’60s girl group pep.” Consequence Of Sound
