Give a spin to Warm Sugar‘s self-titled release, and (especially for a 1970s kid, like your Austin Music Minute host) it conjures those smokey, wood-paneled barroom spirits of a distinctive ’70s-country/FM radio/Gilley’s era. The ATX band turns up the heat with their blend of classic country sounds and Southern soul, describing it as the kind of vibe that leaves Willie, Bobbie Gentry, Neil Young and Linda Ronstadt coursing through your veins.
Warm Sugar sings it sweet and sultry at their Tuesday night residency show tonight at The White Horse, 500 Comal. They play at midnight. Devan Jones & The Uptown Stomp start the evening out at 8 p.m., followed by Devin Jake at 10 p.m. Recommended.
