In February of 2011, Fantasy Rolodex was released as a free download from the band’s website, www.texasmicrophonemassacre.com. With only a guerilla marketing and promotional effort, the project achieved a number of successes, including rave reviews in the Austin Post, Austin Independent Music, The Yay or Nay, and total:spec; a featured remix contest on Sony’s AcidPlanet; inclusion in Substream’s Substream Likes Vol. 2 and Substream Likes Vol. 3 indie artist compilations; airplay on BBC’s RadioOne; regular rotation on Austin, TX-area radio stations KROX 101.5 and KOOP 91.7; and airplay on various internet radio stations and podcasts across the globe.
Building on the foundation of Fantasy Rolodex and follow-up EP, Lovers, Texas Microphone Massacre released the project’s second full-length, Saturn’s in Retrograde, on September 22, 2014. Recorded entirely at Gerron Music in Austin, Texas, the album crystallizes TMM’s signature take on electronic music – soaring vocals, dance-worthy drums, and driving guitars – while offering unique dynamics as-yet unheard in TMM creative efforts.
