November 2, 2015


Music!  Enjoy.

:A Sunny Day In Glasgow – Hey, You’re Mine:  If you’re feeling bleary-eyed this morning, this pleasant pop tune from A Sunny Day In Glasgow should help.  The Planning Weed Like It’s Acid/Life Is Loss EP is due out November 13 via and Mis Ojos Discos.

:Martin Crane – Gunk Of Stars:  I’m really excited about Martin Crane’s upcoming solo debut.  His band Brazos (formerly of Austin) has always been a favorite of mine, and I think it’s great he’s switching things up a bit.  Physical Therapy is due out November 20 via Inscape.

:Karen O – I Shall Rise:  Here’s one that Karen O cut specifically for the upcoming Tomb Raider game. It’s smokey and dramatic, and I love it.  Rise Of The Tomb Raider will be out on November 10.

:Cymbals Eat Guitars – Aerobed:  This track is Cymbals Eat Guitars’ contribution to the 7″ series that Kevin Devine has been rolling out.  I’m all about how epic it is.  Devinyl Splits No. 4 is due out November 13 via Bad Timing Records.

:Pujol – Designer Feelings:  I don’t believe Pujol could write a non-hooky song if he tried.  This is the latest track of his that I can’t seem to take off of repeat.  The Kisses EP is due out November 27 via Bartertown Co-Op.

Well look at that, Martin Crane is still out there alive and kicking.  Once upon a time, Crane and his compatriots in Brazos were one of my favorite Austin acts.  Then Crane left town, put out an album on Dead Oceans (2013′s Saltwater) and that was that.  Now he’s emerged with some solo stuff, and I’m quickly being reminded why I was a fan to begin with – he’s got one of those voices that’s as endearing as can be.  Enjoy.
