The Nothing They Need

As you may know, recent Studio 1A guests Dead Meadow left your Austin Music Minute host absolutely giddy with performances of “Keep Your Head” and “The Light,” tracks from their 2018 LP, The Nothing They Need – something you do need for your own collection. Of course, it’s exciting to hear a favorite band that’s been together now for over 20 years sounding as badass as ever. And, as guitarist/vocalist Jason Simon explained, the album was recorded and produced all by Dead Meadow, on bassist Steve Kille‘s label, with no one else in the mix.

So, check this out: Dead Meadow recently announced the first-time release of their first album in Indonesia, with special deluxe packaging (today’s AMM featured “Greensky, Greenlake”). The good news: Some of these specially-packaged releases are available on their current U.S. tour. You might find some at Dead Meadow’s show tonight at Barracuda, 611 E, 7th St. Saint Pé and Sailor Poon open the show. Doors at 8 p.m.

This one comes very recommended.
