Seems like just yesterday that Ty Richards was releasing his debut Zillion, yet here he is this week with a brand new record on the way in April. This track is a synth driven pop number, with bleeps, bloops and electronic beats serving as the song’s background. What I really love is the way Ty switches up his vocal approach, at times its sharp and to the point, yet he’s able to draw it out to a round melody at other points. Even more impressive is the work on Welcome to Flat Earth was done all analog, sans computer invasion. Look for the new LP on Tremolo Records on April 20th.
I’ve backed the ladies in the Coathangers for some time, and as their star continues to rise, the group only seems to get better and better. Suicide Squeeze just announced today that they’ll be releasing a new split 7″ with the band and label mates, Heavy Cream. This is my first listen, and it’s as bratty and catchy as I remember the group from when they came into Austin just a short bit ago. Really stoked to see what these ladies can pull off on their next full-length, so stay tuned![audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Merry_Go_Round.mp3]
