It’s been a hot minute since we’ve worked with our friends over at Guerilla Waltz to create one of our Lost in Austin videos. We typically wait around for the perfect band to fit our mold, and when former local residents Brazos were in town awhile back, it seemed like the right time to get back in the game. So we sat down with Martin Crane in his studio to perform “Always On” off his new album Saltwater out now on Dead Oceans. Follow the jump for video.
Nathan and I were just discussing the other day when it was that we really got into Brooklyn based experimental pop group Suckers. We think it was way back in 2009 when we sent out an email interview to the band for ACL fest and then left very impressed with an amazing live show from the upstart band. From that point, Suckers has landed on year end lists for music, appeared on award’s lists for performances during SXSW, and eventually played our SXSW show this year. All this culminated in a love affair with the band that has turned into a major bro-mance. All that being said, we of course had to ask these guys to take part in our lost in Austin takeaways while they were in town at Red 7 last Friday. The resulting video is a beautiful take on their new song “Chinese Brail” from the just released Candy Salad. Follow the jump for video and more info.
It’s been a minute or two since we ran a Lost in Austin Take Away feature, but we’re back today with one of our favorite local acts, Literature. Again, we’ve teamed up with the good folks over at GuerillaWaltz to coordinate the best in video and music, so we hope you like the coverage.
