Austin’s music scene isn’t the easiest to break into, let alone stick around in, but Marmalakes have been holding their own for some time. What bodes well for the group is this ridiculously great new single that they just released over the weekend. It starts with this bouncing bass line that gives great tempo to the group’s blend of folk and pop. Personally, I like the changing in tempo that comes in and out of the song, especially the quick to soft to quicker that closes this jam out. One of Austin’s best acts just keeps getting better. Get in on it now.

Man it seems like it’s been a hot minute since we posted a new tune from local ATH favorite band The Sour Notes. We were big fans of their recent record Last Looks, as it appeared on our year end Texas albums list, so we try to make a point to post their music when it’s sent our way. This new song “Two Hands Wait” appears on a new split 7″ the band just put out with fellow local band Marmalakes. Enjoy.
