Austin Music We’re Loving – April 2024

Four new songs from Austin artists that we can’t get enough of.

Night Cap – “Glimpse”

The name fits. Creating pop anthems for the end of an epic night out, Night Cap is a five piece composed of childhood friends and college jam buddies, Ryan King, Jake Bomgaars, Alex Alfonso, Adrian Ayala and Stijn Dobbelaere. “Glimpse” is the latest single off the band’s eponymous debut album, released Friday, April 19th. They celebrate the release with a show at Stubb’s on May 1.


Alejandro Escovedo – “Castanuelas”

Coming in like a static-y signal from one of the pirate radio stations that used to operate on the Texas/Mexico border, “Castanuelas” shimmers with the heat waves radiating from the south Texas desert. Unapologetically sensual, complete with heavy breathing and Escovedo’s suggestive description of a dancer playing the castanets, the song is a standout on his newest album, Echo Dancing, which reimagines tracks from across his 30 year solo career.   


Wonder Women of Country – “Another Broken Heart”

Texas country fans will recognize the voices behind Austin’s newest supergroup, Wonder Women of Country Music. Kelly Willis (rhythm guitar), Melissa Carper (upright bass) and Brennen Leigh (lead guitar and mandolin) decided to team up after regularly sharing bills and swapping songs. Joining a long tradition of tear in your beer barroom ballads, “Another Broken Heart” features Willis’ aching vocals alongside a melancholy steel guitar. It’s an instant country classic.   


Harry Edohoukwa – “Found Me”

With just two singles available on Spotify, R&B singer Harry Edohoukwa is one of the more elusive musicians to call Austin home. Lucky for us, what we do have more than makes up for the small catalog. Edohoukwa’s newest, “Found Me,” continues his penchant for theatrical vocals that swirl in and out of stellar production that straddles hip hop, indie rock, and R&B.
