Kaiti Jones: “Gettin Around to It”

Posted by on Jan 15, 2021

As is the case with many songwriters, storytelling is core to Boston singer Kaiti Jones‘ character. And for Jones, her story began to be told back in 2009 with her first EP, Arise Child, followed by the 2013 four-track Growing Things, and eventually the Vows LP in 2017, offering a substantial amount of material to listeners who drew affectionate comparisons to the flawed, human rock of Sharon Van Etten and Julia Jacklin.

Today Jones has shared a sneak peek of her next record, Tossed, out March 5th, throwing us fans a bit of pre-weekend pep and post-workweek chill in its earnest-yet-light sophomore single (and music video), “Gettin Around to It”!

Click Music: “Surprises”

Posted by on Jan 14, 2021

Though he’s originally from Chicago, multi-instrumentalist David Click has decidedly snapped into place here in Austin. As a publisher, producer, engineer, and of course, singer-songwriter, Click founded his recording studio The Oven not too long ago and has fittingly recorded his material as Click Music there.

Yesterday Click Music commenced his 2021 with a bittersweet title, Cheated on Me, a three-song EP that expands out from the sound of Click’s typical discography to incorporate trip-hop, UK two-step, and pop-R&B. It seems like no matter what genre you throw at him, Click continues to navigate his affectionate arrangements with ease and incite ecstasy in listeners, statements that at this point shouldn’t come too much as, “Surprises”.

Julietta: “Not Today”

Posted by on Jan 13, 2021

It feels like just yesterday that then-New Yorker Julietta was being hailed in the indie pop-ulace for her 2018 debut album Smooth Sailing. But now that she’s well acclimated to a new coast out in L.A., this singer’s spirits are ascending even further with each bold new single.

Julietta’s set to share six new tracks within the next month, forming a cube of indie-pop audacity with her upcoming EP, LevitateLevitate reaches its optimal altitude on February 5th, and get her listeners’ heads pointed skyward, today Julietta dropped the record’s infectious first offering, “Not Today”!

King Air: “Last of a Breed”

Posted by on Jan 12, 2021

As the city continues to change, a comparatively few amount of veterans from the old school scene have stuck around to release new stuff in 2021. But for four talented musicians that’ve performed in Austin since the ’90s, they’ve merely adopted a new handle and begun to share fresh material at this turn of a decade.

Channeling the likes of alternative pioneers Velvet Underground and R.E.M., King Air cast forth their debut EP Tracks Made in Dust on Christmas Day, staking their claim of atmospheric royalty with just as many songs as members and rounding out the record with a real trance-inducer, “Last of a Breed”!

Luke and the Lonely: “My Baby Loves Heavy Metal”

Posted by on Jan 11, 2021

What with quarantine, cabin fever, and yesterday’s surprise amount of snow in the Lone Star State, you might’ve developed a need for company over the weekend. That’s why we’re easing you back into the workweek with Austin four-piece Luke and the Lonely. First sparked in 2017 and finalized in the summer of 2018, this indie pop rock quartet dropped their debut EP The Age of Enlightenment just under two years ago, but’ve decided to hit 2021 running with one of several Chris “Frenchie” Smith-produced singles.

Their first-of-the-year “My Baby Loves Heavy Metal” came out on Friday, giving us all the refined but aggressive strength to help us coast through to see another weekend.
