Danny Golden just released his sophomore LP, Old Love, and is about to embark on a small tour supporting that record. To celebrate the album/tour, he’s put out a new video for the track, “Old Mate,” which features actor John Noble of Lord of the Rings and Fringe amongst other things. The track is a bluesy alt-country stomper, and is all about facing your past and reconciling regret with the present. Head over to PopMatters to read up on this video’s premiere.
The Lovely Sparrows, the longtime Austin area project of Shawn Jones, have made their return from a seven year hiatus from the pop music world to bring you this video for “A Light,” which just premiered on Billboard today! The video is done by Fantagraphics artist, Derek Van Gieson, and features in depth stylized animation of a character living in a post-apocalyptic world on a quest. Musically, “A Light” is soft indie rock, with frenetic riffs and a feeling of constant motion; kind of like a swirling undercurrent that pulls you in and holds you under. Take a peek at the video below and get excited for The Lovely Sparrows first LP in 7 years, Shake The Shadow, which will be out this Friday on Abandoned Love Records.
LA-based Lisa Papineau has announced her fourth solo record for release on February 15 and shared a video for the title track at Parade Magazine, who say, “Minimally produced with uber-present vocals underlying a contemplative and simple stop animation video, the song and video showcase Papineau’s lush and lovely vocals.” The video was created by longtime creative collaborator Betsy Kenyon and you can check it out below!
San Francisco’s Dire Wolves are celebrating the release of their new album, Paradisiacal Mind, tonight in their hometown, and they’ve shared with the world their whole trippy album in full ahead of its official Friday release over with the lovely folks at Treble. Treble had some nice words to say about the release:
“It’s a spacey, cosmic and spiritual set of psychedelic sounds, combining influences from krautrock, spiritual jazz, prog and more avant garde musical realms—at times sounding like Pharoah Sanders jamming with Ash Ra Tempel. It’s quite a trip, perhaps the sort of thing that’s necessary to give a spin during the chaos of a national election. It’s a weird and wonderful set of sounds from a band that’s always headed toward some new and unfamiliar realm”
Danny Golden is about to release his sophomore LP, Old Love, but before that happens this Friday, Nov. 2, he’s shared a new tune on KUTX. This track, “Window,” is a honky tonk rock and roll track, merging americana, country, and rock in one lovely little package. This song is just a example of how Danny Golden blends genres and his Austin influences on his new album. Head over to KUTX to read up on the new track, or take a listen below.
