J Halp Goes Solo
If you’ve been around the Austin music scene in the past few years, you’ve likely seen Josh Halpern behind the drum kit in many of your favorite bands; he drums in Marmalakes, whose debut we put out on ATH Records. Now, he’s stepping out on his own, under the name J Halp. It’s a subdued little number, kind of hopping along on the back of a piano line as it entrances you with its subtlety. The twist comes in just after the 1 minute mark where Josh kind of gives you glimpses of the direction he’s going, combing chilled loops with a little R&B inflection. The Ahlen EP will be out on July 24th, so congrats to Josh on his new endeavor!
