The warm tones and gold hues emanating from Marshall Anderson‘s second full-length release, Beautiful Infinite Wonderful, are a reflection of everything the Austin-based songwriter embraces across the folk spectrum, from pop elements to jazz-influenced sounds. And his sun-soaked poetic folk owes a lot to the inspiration of iconic artists like Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, as well as the phenomenal talent of Adrianne Lenker, songwriter and vocalist of Big Thief. It’s as if Anderson’s contemporary style is connected to memories from another age, a quite natural flow of well-crafted Americana with a powerful nostalgic draw.
Don’t miss Marshall Anderson’s performance tomorrow night at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the inside stage. Anderson shares the bill with another stellar Austin Music Minute fave, Carson McHone, and funky folk-grass trio Steel Betty. Doors at 8 p.m. This one comes very recommended.
