Last Week’s Jams (2.20 – 2.24)

Even after taking off Monday, we managed to get tons of coverage out there. I was stoked to hear that new Cindy song that I had been promised late last year. RayRay started pushing some of our SXSW introductions out with Pendant and Orions Belte. A handful of Austin acts tossed out new tunes, so check in on Hallo, Space Tan and Transy Warhol…a few who will be playing our just announced ATH vs SOTO SXSW Party. Plus, I got a bonus add by getting an excuse to post a little Braid to this site, on top of including my favorite releases of the week for streaming purposes. Get at it below.

K. Campbell Releases Brand New Single

Sitting here on Wednesday, I feel like we could all be friends. I want to make your day better with a few sweet tunes, which is why I’m bringing you this new tune from Houston’s K. Campbell! The artist dropped this new single, with this refreshing blend of power and indie pop; it’s got this remarkably charming vocal delivery, with just enough bite to really keep you coming back time and time again. Plus, if you’re willing to indulge, there’s a nice little horn solo waiting for you in the middle, which is the perfect sign of a great pop song giving you that little bit extra.

K. Campbell Shares Every Little Thing

We’ve gotta rep the Texas scene, even beyond Austin, so when I heard this new track from K. Campbell drop the other day, I knew I had to share it with you immediately. It’s solid piece of power pop, falling somewhere between the landscape of Nada Surf and Teenage Fanclub, which doesn’t seem a bad place to find yourself. Soft melodic vocals glue the track together nicely, and the noisier bits get sanded along the edges, really polishing off the pop sensibility in the perfect way. If this is your style, as it should be, there’s a wonderful 7″ that features this track available HERE.
