Listen: The Happen-Ins, "Work My Way Up Steady"


Southern indie rock enthusiasts breathed a collective sigh of relief on Tuesday when police found Phosphorescent’s once-stolen van and all of the band’s equipment – $40,000 worth of guitars, mics and picks – completely unharmed. But few could have been happier than 1970s-style boogie rockers The Happen-Ins. The Austin quartet shares a link with Phosphorescent through Ricky Ray Jackson, who’s usually slinging a Gretsch in the Lone Star State but plays pedal steel for Matt Houck’s Williamsburg troupe. To celebrate, the Happen-Ins released their cover of the Fats Domino favorite “Work My Way Up Steady,” a take that most definitely fires on the soul tip. Bangarang!
