Idol Frontier is a fitting title for the dusky Americana of Austin locals Altamesa. With intricately interwoven guitars and an emphasis on vocal harmony, Altamesa provide a sonic journey through a country Western-inspired soundscape with a decidedly modern edge. Celebrate the release of Idol Frontier with Altamesa’s album release show at Cheer Up Charlie’s on February 8th. You can find live tracks and interview from Altamesa’s Studio 1A session below.
