Yep…this week is the week. We’ve got just a few days before we spend our weekend with the folks over at Austin Psych Fest. I figured it’d be nice to do something a little different for previews this year, rather than just the traditional Top 5 Bands to See route. So today I decided I’d bring you a highlight of all the acts at the festival that are on Trouble In Mind Records, either past or present. I love the Chicago-based label, and while they definitely have a slew of psych bands, they’ve also got a reasonably diverse catalogue, all of which is pretty solid. So, check out below to see the Top 5 TIM bands at the festival. We’ll see you out there. Read more
This latest jam from Morgan Delt has been floating around for a week or so, but please excuse me, we were on a break! And during that break I was able to spend a lot of time with various upcoming records, including this gem self-titled effort from Morgan. It’s filled to the brim with all sorts of nods to California, both in the arena of psych and just traditional pop. It creates a listening experience that begs to have a listen from start to finish, and that’s the best way to take it all in. For now, however, you can just enjoy this little number until the album comes out via Trouble in Mind Records on January 28th.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/05-Obstacle-Eyes.mp3]
Trouble in Mind Records remains one of the most solid choices for a band looking to get signed. They’ve got a unique blend of artists, though the all have some sonic similarities. So, it’s no suprise that their latest signing, Morgan Delt, has his feet firmly planted in the history of California. There’s bits of classic Cali pop, yet you’ll also find this lurking psychadelia that courses throughout. He’ll be releasing his self-titled debut on January 28th, helping us keep things interesting to start off 2014. I’m interested to hear more from Morgan, and we wish him the best.
