"The Resentments are not a band, yet they are exactly what a band should be:
five guys playing together for the sake of the song, the music."
Rob Patterson, Dallas Observer

The Resentments are what happens when no one is watching in a very visible music scene. Most observe that The Resentments remind them of what is best about music in Austin, what the scene was like before it became a bit self-conscious and a point of international focus.

Started 8 years ago as something to do on a Sunday night at a favorite South Austin bar, The Resentments are all seasoned musicians who front their own bands but enjoy the dynamic of being a sideman as well. Using an eclectic acoustic/electric format, they're free to try anything, newly written songs, old favorites, various styles and tunes unavailable to them in their respective bands, switching instruments like it's no big deal. A healthy disregard for each other plus an open door policy for any other friends that happen by, makes the Sunday Evening service at The Saxon Pub a uniquely Austin event.

Their only guarantee is that tonight's show will be different from last night's show, and that's about the only promise they'll make!

"On My Way To See You"
Latest release from The Resentments, recorded in one feverish week in July 2006 (in between tours) at Wire Studios in Austin Texas, they all brought new material to the forge to be hammered into shape, and with the expert help of their friend and engineer, Stuart Sullivan (Sublime, James McMurtry, Willie Nelson, Meat Puppets), mixed it in another week in August.
From the Muscle Shoals rhythm of 'Sole Satisfaction' to the New Orleans funk of 'Tip Me Over', from the Texas roadhouse meets T-Rex sounds of 'Jesse Taylor' to the cinematic storm of 'Ricebirds', this record is full of rave ups, shakedowns and heartbreaks, and these guys hit it like their lives depended on it.
Jud Newcomb's 'State of Dist
