It’s a distinctive voice, as gentle as it is powerful. Aubrey Hays wields their power with the warmest, richest tones, from dramatic sweeps taking you to climactic moments in “Statue,” to the bright and hopeful shimmer of “I Wanna See This Through,” with only a slight quiver of uncertainty as they present a question from […]
Whittle it down to the basics, and here are the facts: Rakim stands out as a transformative figure in hip-hop, essentially known for expanding MC techniques and embracing complexity within rap lyrics, phrasing, and styles. Many proclaim Rakim as an innovator of “the flow” in rap, or it’s natural rhythms/cadence. Though today’s Austin Music Minute […]
Kraftwerk at ACL Live

Kraftwerk at ACL Live


Perhaps you were one of the lucky (and most well-informed, pre-internet) individuals to experience the brilliance of Kraftwerk in real time. Or, like most of us, your first exposure to the electronic soundscapes lightyears ahead of our time came to you thanks to Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force (“GO LADIES”). Since starting what […]
It took about fifty years, but Leo Nocentelli‘s solo LP Another Side finally arrived in 2021, via Light In the Attic Records. Surely longtime Meters fans, and even newbees just discovering the New Orleans funk originators, must know that this is a whole different trip for the Meters’ guitarist. It’s a genuine roots rock treasure […]
Angélica Rahe at 3Ten

Angélica Rahe at 3Ten


The message reigns on Angélica Rahe‘s powerful 2020 debut, the regal Reina. It’s crystal clear on Rahe’s latest release, autorretrato. And, in case you missed it and needed further clarification, Rahe gently reminded listeners during her recent KUTX Studio 1A performance: She writes songs that are unabashedly, unashamedly, about femininity (in all humanity), female empowerment, […]
MATTIE at The Parish

MATTIE at The Parish


You get the sensation that MATTIE is not of this world. Those wondrous vocals are like nebulae, luminous, mysterious, always in motion. Though a Dallas-based artist, MATTIE’s spirit is interstellar, and a wonderful introduction to her art can be experienced on her debut EP, Jupiter’s Purse, a journey of its narrator Mhuv (pronounced “move”) exploring […]
If you know, you know, and make no mistake, Margaret Moser was onto something with her dedicated support of this Austin-based sibling trio. The artists formerly known as The Tiarra Girls are confidently moving into the next chapter of their musical journey, boldly and proudly redefining their identities as songwriters, and as a band not […]
This is where the fire’s at. Wednesday night’s bill at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul presents a big part of your summertime soundtrack: Born in Miami, raised in Columbia, and bringing it all to Austin, Kiko Villamizar has cumbia in his blood and psych in his soul. Soak it all up when you spin Villamizar’s third […]
There’s something about Warm Chris, the fourth full-length release by New Zealand-based artist Aldous Harding (Hannah Sian Topp), that feels as though it’s gleefully defying genre, moving in multiple directions with sound and songwriting, in a kind of free form exercise. Perhaps on some levels its construction wouldn’t make sense, but therein lies its surrealistic […]
The Deer at The ABGB

The Deer at The ABGB


“Confetti To The Hurricane,” the gorgeous opener of The Deer‘s 2019 LP Do No Harm, recently reached one million listens on Spotify, just on the heels of the Austin’s band annual trek to Kerrville Folk Festival earlier this month. And this week, songwriter/vocalist Grace Rowland and her badass crew dropped the new track “I Wouldn’t […]
Calexico at Scoot Inn

Calexico at Scoot Inn


. ..Cuidado con El Mirador… Throughout their decades-long career, Calexico founders Joey Burns and John Convertino have remained true to their Southwestern roots, and that deep reverence burns throughout their tenth full-length studio release, El Mirador. The opening title track, and killer rips like “Cumbia del Polvo,” are layered with cumbia, conjunto and mariachi influences, […]
As KUTX celebrates Pride Month with features about LGBTQIA+ artists shaping Austin’s music scene, the AMM is also keeping an ear out for Pride music shows around town, like the Far Out and Proud series. Every Wednesday throughout June, South Austin venue Far Out Lounge and Stage puts the spotlight on area artists of various […]
Welcome to another excellent round of musical exploration with the Me Mer Mo music series, happening tonight, Monday June 13, at The Volstead on E. 6th. Doors open at 7 p.m., and this evening’s show begins with a set by Evil Triplet founder Steve Marsh performing with longtime collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and Bad Livers founding member […]
Dig the wild and racy ride of The Ghost Wolves‘ “Elsa” video, one of the scorchers on the Austin duo’s latest LP Never Die. Whips, chains and lobo-esque nuptials beguile in this wicked rocker, featuring fab appearances by video creative team Lord Friday the 13th, all within the rustic setting of Tiny T Ranch and […]
Since moving to Austin in the early aughts, your Austin Music Minute host got a lesson on what is actual “church” day, which is not Sunday but Saturday. Going to church on Saturday meant starting the day marveling over fascinating clips and blips about dead celebrities on DJ Harris’ Graveside Service; soaking in the fantastical […]
If you know, you know. To simply call this one a “show” is insufficient. Perhaps…a vibe, honoring all moods, styles, fashion, artistic expression from the darkest recesses of the spectrum. Live music and guest DJs are essential to the alchemy of NITE SCHOOL, but there’s more that emerges from this 2nd Thursday electronic dance soirée […]
Initially, when Madison Baker began writing songs a few years ago, the Austin-based artist set out to create music reflecting their personal experiences from a queer, non-binary perspective. But they found they were also intrigued by the extraordinary ways music brings people closer together, as well as the myriad of emotions that, while connecting all […]
If you got to see some of the Instagram video from last Wednesday’s blowout at the Magic Rockers of Texas residency kickoff at Hole In the Wall, you won’t need much convincing to go. Crocodile Tears and The Bad Lovers started things out with a bang, and now this week’s gang of hoodlums bring more […]
It’s a lot of music. As with many artists, songwriting didn’t stop for Jack White during lockdown. It’s not a faucet. You can’t shut it off. But as each song began to take form, White realized it would be too much for just one album. The flow felt interrupted when he tried to piece it […]
Writer. Poet. Hip-hop artist. Spoken word performer. All of these things. Austin-based artist Chucky Blk tackles racism and the illusion, the fallacy, of the “American dream” with unflinching honesty on his 2020 release, A Scathing Critique of Current Affairs. Today’s AMM featured track, “Top of My List,” unfolds as an ode to seizing life by […]
