Austin Spotlight: Friendly Savages

1016657_480126135399015_1655698993_nWe ran a nice little punk rock jam this morning, so I wanted to bring you all something from the opposite direction, Austin’s Friendly Savages. The group dropped their album, O, Joshua, a few months back, and it’s an album begging for a larger audience.  On this track, I like the way the structure unfolds, opening slowly then moving to a full folk sound, but they have a nice little breakdown near the end of the track that should surprise you.  Those of you looking about for a new folk-rock act might have just found exactly what you were looking for today, and in the very least, you’ve got a great song to enjoy today.
