“Echotone” would’ve impressed me 15 years ago. I used to be super into music scenes and how they explore local cultures. Now, a mix of age and disinterest in underground sounds has caused me to shrug at something like this. I appreciate a serious documentary look at the Austin music scene, but I don’t feel the oomph of their fight. While economic factors continue to take a raging dump on artists, I find it super hard to be concerned about the struggle in art-rich cities. Smaller areas have my sympathy, not collectives of people doing this thing for decades.
