While my tastes this week have been dominated by some rocking tunes, there’s still a few spots left for moving pieces of careful composition. Enter Musee Mecanique. They’ve just released this sprawling piece of orchestral pop, and it’s the perfect thing to help put your spirit at east. Whether it’s the gentle quality of the vocals or the burst of the horns before the song cuts short, there’s something special that makes the song repeatedly appealing. The band will release Shores of Sleep on August 25th, which is perfect timing for my return to the real world.
Jason Chronis spends a good deal of his time in Austin band Voxtrot, but this Tuesday night he’ll be gettin’ down solo like at Mohawk. Jason will partner with other up and coming local acts Low Line Caller & Musse Mecanique. Tickets for the show will be sold at the door for $6 if you’re over 21 and $8 for you underage types. Doors open up at 10pm.
