It’s Friday, and while you gaze towards the weekend, maybe you need some musical recommendations to get your day started. I’ll try not to wax philosophically on these, as we’ve covered singles and what not heading into the album releases…so without further ado.
Swansea Sound – Twentieth Century (Skep Wax Records)
Members of Pooh Sticks, Heavenly return with another great collection of pop rock with a subtle political bent.
Echo Ladies – Lilies (Rama Lama Records)
Dark, noisy and beautiful. One of my favorite releases this year I wish more people could put their ears upon.
Friday Boys – Depressed Gang (Self-Released)
Good old fashioned punk rock from here in Austin. Now with more hooks! Friday’s jams from Friday Boys.
Kath Bloom – Finally (Chapter Music)
Chapter Music celebrate the 1990s recordings of Kath Bloom with the first ever vinyl release of Finally.
Sharp Pins – Turtle Rock (Tall Texan Records)
Another “first ever” release for the solo-project of Kai Slater of current Lifeguard fame, courtesy of Tall Texan Records.
DAIISTAR – Good Time (Fuzz Club)
New up-and-coming Austin act drops their debut LP. Sweetness amidst walls of noise.
