At Rock the Block, you’ll find three things that are crucial to surviving college: food, music and alcohol. The acre of grass occupied by food trucks and picnic tables was bustling with “Block Heads” enjoying their cuisine of choice while listening to the eight-band lineup.

I caught up with one of the acts – San Antonio’s own Matt Adler and his band, David Hernandez (keys), Dave Brent (drums), Tony Neely (bass), Katie Boyd (cello; yes, cello!) – after their amazing set. Their cool indie vibe makes any music lover instantly fall in love with them.

From Dubstep intros to eloquent lyrics, Matt Adler definitely brings something that fits in anywhere. Their new album, “Stages”, is available for free download on their website mattadlermusic.com. It’s definitely a must-listen.

Paisano: Do you have a favorite song to perform?

Matt Adler: I would say, for me, it’s “This is the Last Time”. It’s very just…it gets so big at the end. It’s very unexpected. I like the genre. I like the chord progressions. I like the loudness.
Dave Brent: For me, it’s kind of a tie between “Love Will Find Me”, “This is the Last Time” and “BTW” because of all the drumming I get to do in “BTW”.

P: What bands or artists have inspired you?

Tony Neely: Probably Gungor, Volcano Choir, Muse.
MA: Imagine Dragons.

TN: Yeah, we listened to a lot of Imagine Dragons and Volcano Choir while working on the new album.
