Way back in January, I posted a sweet new single from local Austin boys Good Field called “These Dreams”. I haven’t really heard much from the band until they just sent out their brand new single “Tell Me Ida” found below. It appears on a new self-titled album from the band which is due out on February 12th. This is a great song from one of Austin’s most promising new band. Get with the program!

Wow, it’s been several years since we’ve heard even a peep from Austin band Belaire. We here at ATH always loved the band’s live performances and their limited number of physical releases available. Well now the band is back with a new LP entitled Resonating Symphony due out next week on April 21st via local label Indierect Records. Until that time, here’s the latest single from the group “This Could Take All Night” which features some tasty pop hooks and irresistible lead female vocals that remind us why we fell in love with this band many years ago.
Also on April 21st, the band are planning a record release show at 29th Street Ballroom in ATX. The show is only $10 at the door, music is at 10pm, and fellow locals Good Field and Deep Time will provide opening support.

It’s new band hype time here at ATH, and today we’re here to build some hype for newish Austin band Good Field. The band has an impressive resume featuring former members of Brazos, The Early Tapes, and even local legends Voxtrot. Paul Price originally started the band as a solo project but has since expanding to enlist the help of several friends and putting together a 4 track EP (Said EP is actually available to stream for free on the band’s website). At their core, the band is a shoegaze pop group, but they also offer a bit more with catchy hooks that can’t be denied.
Also of note, the band has an album release show planned for Saturday at Baby Blue Recording Studio with Jesse Woods and Sleep Good both offering support. Doors are at 8pm for that one. $5 cover and free keg beer.
