Matador Records co-owner and sports blogger Gerard Cosloy has assembled Casual Victim Pile, a great compilation of Austin bands that probably don't make much of a blip on the radar of Sixth Street blues-cover enthusiasts and Bob Schneider fans.
As Cosloy explains in the liner notes (which are hilarious and reason enough to buy the comp, by the way), they both "...play in Austin often enough that the self-imposed 'no ringers' rule was tossed in the trash." Cosloy chose Tre Orsi's "Engineer" and Bad Sports' "Can't Remember Your Name" for the compilation.
