2012 Most Underrated Band: The Rich Hands

The Rich Hands live at 35 Denton last month.


The Rich Hands

For a bunch of young bucks, the Rich Hands are a surprisingly mature, unified band that crank out absolutely infectious and tight rock 'n' roll jams that are over so quick that you're not ready to let go of them. That is, until the next track kicks in and pulls you up off your ass again. The band's songs are '60s garage rock concentrate with a heavy dose of white-boy soul: quick and to-the-point jams with no extraneous junk to get in the way.

It's perfect 45 rpm music and, appropriately, their debut 7-inch has recently been released by Fountain Records out of Detroit. The standout track, "Gypsy Woman," sounds like that gleaming obscure 45 single you found at Goodwill that all your hipster buddies hound you over, while another pair of tracks, "Heartbreaker" and "Girl," ensure that the cute chick with the thick-rimmed glasses you've been hanging out with will swoon for you later after you leave this wax at her house.

"It would be nice if our music was heard more locally," member Cody Mauser told the Current. The young band seems a bit ambivalent about their place in the San Antonio music community so far, and has found Austin's scene more welcoming. While they haven't found their audience in town yet, the group remains optimistic. "We're still such a small band with a lot to learn, but it seems like we're headed in the right direction."

So yeah, San Antonio: Do you want to dance?
