Moving Panoramas Share Texas Blues

With a new LP on the horizon, it would make sense that we’d be sharing one of those new tunes from Moving Panoramas. But, this world often makes little sense, so today you’re lucky to listen to “Texas Blues,” a brand new track the Austin outfit recorded for Walker Lukens Election Confessional and sponsored by Modern Outsider and the Texas Democratic Party; the project brings songwriters and politicians together, raising funds and awareness in the process; all tracks are being mixed by Jim Eno of Spoon. The group composed the song in a short hour after talking with Julie Nitsch (Board of Trustees Place 9) for an hour, then recording it all in an hour (3 hours tops!). Copies of the LP can be procured HERE, but let’s talk about the song. Of late, the band have filled the spaces with textured artistic flourishes, but on this number, the band allow for the track to mellow in its own vast expanse; it serves as a breeding ground for the vocal harmonies shared between Leslie Sisson and Cara Tillman. Lyrically, you get the sense that Leslie, and Julie, truly understand the plight of being a voter in Texas…apathy, anger and yet looking for that ray of hope on the distant horizon. Here’s to that, here’s to Tuesday and here’s to helping ‘us cure these Texas Blues.’
