Solitary Framework Ashtray emerged in 2000 from the spare elements of two imploding Austin, TX, indie rock combos. Nearly instantly, Brendan Reilly, Henry Dent, and Jason Schleter appeared to be creating something people wished to talk about. Issue was, all of the typical labels had been fuzzy. Indie rock and roll? Dance punk? Cut’n’paste pop static? It wasn’t very clear just what Solitary Framework Ashtray was producing, nonetheless it was influencing enough to create the chatterboxes a-buzzing. In 2002, the self-released Wetheads Arrive Running LP produced several tastemakers’ faves lists; by 2003’s a lot more ambitious Burn off Radio Airtest (released with the Austin upstart Currently Gone), it had been clear Solitary Framework — having fallen the “Ashtray” — had been more focused than ever before on the chop sockey not-pop. And acclaim cleaned downstream like a lot floating booty.
