Austin A2W: The Black

theblackWe’ve  been following Austin band The Black after fellow Ausinites Trail of Dead recommended them to us so we thought they’d be perfect for our artist to watch this week.  The band has been in and around Austin for quite some time now and have been playing everywhere in town that will have them.  Their sound mixes some old school rockabilly with a bit more modern pop sounds and fits in well with dive bars in small town Texas.  Expect a proper full length from the boys sometime in the next few months but for now check out this jam “Little Hits” from The Black’s last 45 single.  If you want to see what they’re all about live, head to the Stubbs indoor stage on Saturday evening shortly after Spoon finishes their 3rd show outside.  That one’s free if you have a Spoon ticket and $8 if not.
