Show Preview: Austra @ The Mohawk (9/13)
We last saw Austra opening for The XX at ACL Live. Their set kind of took us by surprise. Gone were the headdress veils and theatrical makeup, replaced by genuine interaction ans a strong presence from front-woman Katie Stelmanis. That and her really locked down vocal; I am looking forward to hearing new tracks from the new album Olympia come to life.
I expect more of the same tonight, so join me before I head over the Red7 for Dent May. Double up. Diana opens.
You can hear the latest single “Home” that is very grounded and a little less digital, if you will, by clicking here, but I’m gonna give you my fave jam to get you in the mood…[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Austra-The-Beat-and-the-Pulse.mp3]
