In my never ending quest to find quality music with a rocking sound, I came across this incredible new track “Drink You Dry” from Michigan based group minihorse. It reminds me a great deal of the later work offered by Nada Surf if they added some droning, loud guitars to their repertoire. The repetitive nature of the song with the beautiful compliment of harmonies provided by Anna Burch, create a track that’s sure to warrant multiple plays.
Minihorse will release debut album Living Room Art on April 3rd via Park the Van Records.
As per usual for this time of the year, there’s a powerhouse of rock n’ roll shows in Austin. Some featuring great local acts, others featuring great touring bills. Check out our suggestions.
