Joe Smyth help us keep our Austin theme today, as he’s one of the folks helping get Austin acts (and others) out on the road. But, more importantly, he’s a scavenger of music news, so he’s given us a couple of great lists…one a shout out to the blogs that turned him onto great music…and the other just a general best of list. Peruse as you must, and if you have touring needs…check out Nine Mile Touring.

More New Music From Field Mouse


Already this year I’ve shared two incredible songs with you by Brooklyn based dream/haze pop upstart band Field Mouse and I hope you’re enjoyed those two as much as I have.  They have a really great style that’s reminiscent of bands like School of Seven Bells or even a less somber Beach House.  Today they band are offering up yet another great single found below called “Tomorrow is Yesterday” that throws in some hints of Metric along with those other bands previously mentioned.  Of course I dig all those bands so I’m on board with this new project as well.

New Jam From Field Mouse

We’re clearly a little late on this new jam from Field Mouse so let’s just get that out of the way and move about our business.  The new song at hand is called “How Do You Know” and is a nice little number that fits into the shoe gaze pop genre.  Sultry vocals here from lovely lady Rachel Browne are what really intrigue me about the track and help it to stand out from others in the genre.  This sweet new jam is available on a 7″ single coming your way from Lefse Records on October 16th.  Pre-Order here.

New Music From Field Mouse

Here’s a new track from hazy dream pop outfit Field Mouse called “Glass”.  The newish group definitely have a knack for creating entrancing pop music.  This new song has just been released in support of a new 7″ from the band entitled SPROO8 due out February 28th on Small Plates Records.  The tune below isn’t actually on that single so just enjoy and maybe pre-order their new release if you dig.
