Cross Record 2.6.16

Artist of the Month

Cross Record 2.6.16

Posted by on Feb 8, 2016

Our Artist of the Month Cross Record’s second album, Wabi Sabi, is named after the Japanese aesthetic which celebrates the beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. The album is the first recorded by songwriter Emily Cross and her husband Dan Duszynski since they relocated from Chicago to Dripping springs–and the change of scenery can be heard throughout the album. Wabi Sabi is a sparse and hypnotizing record which could have only been imagined outside of the crowded city. Emily Cross’ ethereal vocals and dreamy songwriting bring to mind the ambient dream pop of Grouper, with the fuzzy production style of Phil Elverum projects, Mount Eerie and the Microphones.

 

Listen to their Studio 1A session here, and you can also listen to their guest DJ set at 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 13th.

Studio 1A Sessions

P.T. Banks 1.28.16

Posted by on Feb 2, 2016

Formerly Paul Banks & the Carousels, AKA SUPERMOON, P.T. Banks is a dreamy soul pop group from Austin, TX led by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Paul Banks, with bassist/multi-instrumentalist Christopher Cox and percussionist Matthew Shepherd. Voices as hauntingly beautiful as Paul Banks’ are rare pleasures to hear. Like some spectral singers before him (Roy Orbison and Jeff Buckley come to mind), Banks’ spell casting vocals can transform any venue into a moonlit reverie.

P.T. Banks releases their LP, Moonlight is Sunlight, on February 5th, and their album release show is at Stubb’s indoors on Saturday, February 6th. If you can’t wait until the weekend to be enthralled by their music, check out their Studio 1A set here!

Delta Spirit @ KUTX 9.11.14

Delta Spirit released their fourth studio album today! “Into the Wide” does not break the band’s streak for a striking pulse, even though recording halted at the crash of Hurricane Sandy when their studio in Brooklyn flooded following the disaster. Originally from California, it’s back to sunnier weather because word on the street is that Delta Spirit has settled in Austin- for now. Reddit fans recently joined the group’s company as they participated in an AMA where Matt Vasquez (vocals/guitar) revealed that he may join up to write another Middle Brother album. You can find Delta Spirit at Emo’s or hear them live on Studio 1A RIGHT HERE!
