Aisha Burns Video Premiere!

It’s interesting when you stumble across an artist who you think you know, such as Aisha Burns of Balmorhea.  As the multi-instrumentalist for the band, I fully expected the music on her album, Life in the Midwater, to be incredible, but it was her voice on the album that won us over, earning her one of the coveted spots on our Top 15 of Austin list.  Today we bring you the premiere of her new video for the single, courtesy of her label, Western Vinyl.

If you like what you hear, and we know you will, you need to hurry out to Holy Mountain this evening to catch Aisha playing a set that will surely remind you of why she’s got one of the great voices in Austin at the moment.  The doors are at 9 PM, and you’ll be able to catch other acts like Easy Tiger and Hikes, so be sure to get there early and support all the great music.

New Gritty Pop From Royal Forest

Royal Forest is a band that’s been on the ATH radar for a long time now and we try to give them as much coverage as we can when the chance arises.  The band has been relatively quiet, as far as recorded material goes, but still seem to play around town on a regular basis.  Lucky for us, the band just passed over this new gritty number called “Ambulance”.  It has a solid backing beat behind some interesting hushed vocals that compliment the track quite nicely.

The band is planning on releasing a new EP of material for free on bandcamp sometime real soon.  We’ll be sure to let you know when that goes down.

Premiere: New Rocker from Woollen Kits

It’s about time for Woollen Kits to take over the US, completely.  After releasing their self-titled album on RIP Society, the band is back with a fresh new 7″, this time on the great American label, Trouble In Mind Records. The A-Side is titled “Shelley and it encompasses everything I love about the band.  There’s an effortless bit of swagger that has me imagining the band swinging their guitars about the stage; the usage of gang vocals gives the track a raucous feel—and then a sharp-edged guitar solo cuts through. One listen to this jam and you’ll be stomping your feet, begging for the release to come your way.  You won’t have to wait too long, as the single hits streets (with B-Side “Down Your Street”) on August 7th..so hold your horses; good things come to those who wait.
