Singles Going Single #125 - Sixteen Deluxe 7" (2000, Speakerphone)

Austin's Sixteen Deluxe were a coed indie quartet with a decent local following, but despite signing to Warner Brothers in the late '90s for their sophomore album Emits Showers of Sparks, they never translated to a nationwide audience. Their zesty stripe of guitar-pop will appeal to those appreciating the sonic sprawl of Silversun Pickups, with a distortion-inflected wink and a nod to such female fronted alt-rawkers as Magnapop and the Primitives. I believe "To Find What's Waitin' For" was rerecorded for their 2000 album, Vision Take Me Make Me Never Forsake Me, while the sharp-as-a-tack flipside, "Burning Leaves" is proprietary to this single.

A. To Find What's Waitin' For
B. Burning Leaves
