It’s been a good amount of time since Tea Leigh and Luke Reed have worked together, but both have kept fairly busy on their own. That being said, their reunion leaves listeners salivating for more. Tea Leigh works her voice carefully into the picture, softly stepping her toes into the pop pool crafted by Reed. There’s this light guitar bit that prominently pokes its head out, before slinking back to let Leigh take her place at the front of the mix, keeping you drifting along. Perhaps the line “it’s never too late, you will return to me” leaves us with a hint that the two will continue their songwriting partnership…we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
If you were living in Austin, you might (or should) have heard this brand new track from Big Bill on 101x Homegrown. But, in case you missed it, or you don’t live in Austin, then you should give a listen to some of our town’s best punks mixing things up with their latest hit. For the first 1.45 minutes, the band flesh out their sound by slowing things out, flexing the track with some saxophone. But, soon the tune erupts unmercifully in a rapturous closing that you’d only get from the Bills. Just another stop on the BB train while we wait for the group to release what we expect is a stellar new LP.
