Team ATH has been covering Austin Psych Fest/Levitation since its early inception, probably in the second year at Radio Room (sorry we missed the first year!), so we’ve seen the ups and downs twists and turns. Despite the various venues and changes, Levitation 2019 finally felt like it was home again.
I’ve always been a fan of Lauren Green’s songwriting, whether that was as part of Mirror Travel or some of her solo work; she’s now teamed up with friend Marissa Macias to form Tan Cologne. The two met while hanging out in Taos, New Mexico, which fits into the narrative of this song in particular; it feels like driving through the roads of New Mexico, almost blurring the lines between the track’s sonic and visual approaches, drifting about with the ebbs and flows. The duo will be releasing their debut album, Cave Vaults on the Moon in New Mexico via Labrador Records (which, to me, is huge!). They’ve got a handful of shows in November, including a few Austin dates for Levitation.
