Stewards of Shoegaze, Blushing, Release "The Truth" In Advance of Debut Album

Momentum is the elusive ingredient that local Austin bands crave going into a new release or kicking off a new tour. Thankfully that crucial element is directly correlated to the amount of effort put forth, and local shoegaze quartet, Blushing, are generating awareness with a slew of live shows on a variety of stages. The two husband and wife duos have been playing together since 2015, and their chemisty is uniquely cohesive and powerful for obvious reasons. Bassist/vocalist, Christina Carmona, is a classically trained singer who elevates each track into a celestial soundscape while guitarist/vocalist, Michelle Soto, reverberates an ethereal passion that blends perfectly into each heavenly track. "The Truth" is the first single off of their upcoming debut album, which  is scheduled to be released in early 2019. The single demonstrates a deft mix of distortion, melodic swings and jangled guitars that create a beautiful volute of shoegazed bliss. The female-fronted quartet does not hide in a fugue state of druggy reverb like other shoegazers but, instead opts to slice through the fuzzy pedal effects with dynamic guitar riffs and pounding percussion that proves more epic than meandering. The band's dedication to getting in as many shows as possible before the new album release gives you the opportunity to see Blushing play with Holy Golden at Hotel Vegas on November 14th or you can catch them at Cheer Up Charlies on December 7th!

Andy Macintyre Breaks Through With Melomania

 Andy Macintyre moved to Austin from Chicago when he was 18, and has brought together both city's music influences throughout his development. Having cut his teeth early on Nirvana and Stones riffs, Andy has found his home under the influence of Muddy Waters, Albert Collins and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Playing around Austin blues haunts, Andy has made a name for himself as a versatile guitarist and frontman that moves effortlessly between no-frills rock, bone marrow blues, and country storytelling. The EP, Melomania, is the direct result of years of hard work and has a notable team including mixing engineer, Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam) and producer, Stuart Sullivan (Sublime, Meat Puppets). Andy Macintyre hasn't taken any shortcuts in his music journey and a hard-hitting EP like Melomania is proof that hard work has a rewarding payoff.

Meg Myers Inspires at Sold Out Show

 In a city with endless music venues, there is no place where your name shines brighter than the billboard at Antones Nightclub.  “Meg Myers – Sold Out” blared out over 5th street on Sunday night and the crowd begin to mass at the doorway.  Since the original scheduled date had been rescheduled from weeks ago due to Meg’s vocal surgery, fans were anticipatory and fervent.

Meg Myers has been releasing music for six years now and with the help of her writing partner, Doctor Rosen Rosen, has created a deep body of work that is potent as it is eclectic. The release of her second and latest album, Take Me To The Disco, has brought a second wave of earworms that have been added to the hit-laden debut album, Sorry.

 Local electro-pop artist, Dossey, opened for Meg and brought an upbeat and 80’s-inspired energy that galvanized the audience while priming them for the main act. Meg Myers is 32 years old, her youthful appearance leads you to think she could be fresh out of college, and then she begins to sing and you hear a voice that is as powerful as it is timeless. The show kicked off the show with new songs like “Jealous Sea”, “The Death of Me” and “Take Me to the Disco” which were received well.

 Older hits like “Motel”, “Sorry” and “Monster” all came out as well and served as red meat for Meg’s most vehement fans. The audience was an interesting mix of various age groups with teenagers, middle-aged people and older folk all present and equally fixated, albeit some shrieking more than others.

 Onstage Meg engages in witty banter with the crowd while bearing her soul on each and every song. Her encore would prove to be the tipping point with her biggest hit to date, “Desire”, and her first single off the latest album, “Numb”. The crowd loosed their love upon Meg and her band and the only question that lingered, was how big the next venue would have to be to facilitate Meg Myer’s next visit to Austin.

Thanks Light releases new stop-motion music video, "Little Pink Fluffy Clouds"

Austin's Thanks Light has released a charming new music video for "Little Pink Fluffy Clouds." It's a colorful and creative compliment to the song's jangly, indie-rock vibe, with chord structures and tones reminiscent of bands like Wilco, Why? and Pavement. The video is entirely composed of DIY stop-motion animation: figurines and shaving cream dance and swirl around the screen, while fridge-magnet letters and Lite-Brite spell out the song's lyrics. It's clear the indie quartet had fun with the video, and the fun is contagious. Check out the video below! - Ethan Ames

Pauline Releases "Life Away" In Anticipation of Debut Full-Length

Preparing for the release of their debut album, Little Blue, the Austin-based quartet, Pauline, has rolled out a new single called "Life Away". The single blends 80's styled analog synths with heartfelt songwriting that drips with introspective melancholy. Vocalist, Ethan Ames, gives an understated but deft vocal performance that matches the instrumentation perfectly. The lyrics are rife with frustrated prose on addiction and shame that give the song depth. Pauline has released two other singles; "When You're Out There" and "Say Goodbye" but the latest single seems to be building momentum towards the full-length release. Keep any eye on Pauline as they gear up for their debut release.
