Austin Spotlight: Small Circles

10516600_577338272388271_5118767778977189528_nHere’s a fun little diddy from Austin based band Small Circles.  The track is called “Maybe in the Long Run” and features a catchy vocal delivery with a pop/rock vibe sound.  Though I knew nothing about the band prior to today, I’m already digging this more than a lot of the popular music currently coming out of Austin.  Keep it up boys.

Small Circles have an EP coming out very soon.  Stay tuned here for updates.

Incredible New Track From The Rentals

I06_the-rentals know that you may have seen this tune elsewhere last week, but when a song is as sweet as this one, I will post it despite my tardiness.  To keep this brief, The Rentals have always been a big favorite of mine and I’m super excited that they are returning this year with their much delayed 3rd LP.  This track called “Thought of Sound” is a preview of the new album and it’s proving that the wait for new music was well worth it.  Seriously, these guys have a distinct sound that is just like no other.  YES.

New album, Lost in Aplhaville, is due out August 26th on Polyvinyl Records.

Free Tunes from Mars Field

Mars Field is an old Irish group who never seem to have reached a lot of acclaim over in the United States, which is kind of a bummer.  Their sound is sort of that melodramatic slow-core that we adored in the late 90s.  It’s heartfelt, sometimes tragic, but always beautiful.  The good news is that you can now get all three of the band’s albums: The Blue Buildings are Burning, Upwards Like a Well and Talking Makes Things Worse.  You’ll want to do this immediately, as they’re all FREE!  Just visit the band HERE.
