Massachusetts-born singer/songwriter Ted Hadji moved to Austin, Texas, for grad school but has settled into its music scene, creating odd and diverse music typified on his self-released debut, The Particles Don't Care. He blends slow-paced, gentle vocals that scream emo influence along with catchy folk/rock beats. On several tracks, raw emotional vocals and lyrics come together in dark and honest harmony. Free admission.
