The Empress, Tonight

The Empress, Tonight

2021-07-2302:15

Be on the lookout for the new track “Gimme That” by Tameca Jones – and a new video – coming out next month. Mark your calendar for the official release party, happening Saturday August 21 at 3Ten. But first, the empress of Austin soul has a killer show coming up tonight, Friday July 23, at […]
The Juice Is Loose

The Juice Is Loose

2021-07-2202:11

It all began with a tall order – “Big Mac.” Doesn’t need fries, babe. But it leaves your heart pounding as the car skids off and sails right past the drive-thru window at 190 mph. Lord Friday the 13th makes it all Mc-happen with a wicked whirl of glam/ pop-punk verve. Naturally, that fabulous frenzy […]
A Big (Bill) Return

A Big (Bill) Return

2021-07-2102:15

It was rather a short press conference, after the band exploded. Or…evaporated into a vibrating conniption, it was difficult to tell. And in a field of dreams, no less. -Image of Big Bill from promo video, courtesy of the artist. Oh – em – gee, local party planner group Howdy Gals has done it again […]
Midnight

Midnight

2021-07-2002:07

Even just a brief listen to “Midnight,” Emily Herring‘s heart-aching torch tune featured on today’s AMM, should give you some idea of the power of Herring’s bold and crystalline vocals. They’ve even drawn a few comparisons to Patsy Cline. It’s a voice that belongs in the best honky-tonks, dance halls and dives, emitting a deep […]
C-Boy’s Monday Night

C-Boy’s Monday Night

2021-07-1902:10

Making Monday considerably better, here’s the line-up for tonight, Monday July 19, at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul, 2008 S. Congress Ave.: -No exaggeration. He’s a one-man cyclone, that Scott H. Biram, and he starts the evening with a happy hour set at 6:30 p.m. -There’s more ahead for the night with sets by Austin powerhouse […]
Back For More!

Back For More!

2021-07-1702:05

And the crowd goes WILD. They were ready for it. Judging by the action-packed shots shared on the band’s Instagram by super stoked fans, Tomar and The FC’s ruled the room last night at The Continental Club. But don’t worry if you missed it. Tomar and The FCs return for round two tonight, Saturday July […]
Despite the slightly ominous title of the forthcoming Music Is Dead, Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band clearly proves otherwise with an astoundingly mind-blowing collection of badassery all created during quarantine. Yes, it is that great. Check out today’s AMM track selection, the marvelous tapestry that is “Gregorian Chance” – just a sample of the vastness and […]

Summer Fest 2021

2021-07-1502:21

AMM friends, here’s the low down on a very cool three-day event kicking off tonight: Summer Fest 2021 features an awesome exhibit of works by artists in the atxGALS arts collective, as well live music performances, all taking place at The Cathedral, 2403 E. 16th St. Proceeds benefit local nonprofit Creative Action, providing community programs […]
Your Sweethearts

Your Sweethearts

2021-07-1402:22

Your Austin Music Minute host knows that this is one not to miss. Two dreamboats on the same bill, baby, both superb songwriters and performers, and it’s all in one night – including a few surprises. Here are your show stars: Josh T. Pearson, former vocalist of the enigmatic Lift To Experience, now tearing it […]
Voice Box

Voice Box

2021-07-1302:20

It’s alluring. And it belongs on your soundtrack, on repeat, when you can’t quite put that agonizing ache into words. Why Bonnie‘s Voice Box (Fat Possum Records) is the multi-layered, dreamy pop embodiment of catharsis. There’s an undeniable emotional release of Blair Howerton’s lyricism and luminous vocals. -Photo of Blair Howerton by John Bergin. Howerton […]
Hycha Wy

Hycha Wy

2021-07-1202:18

What a killer premiere for Nemegata. Last year’s fiery debut LP Hycha Wy earned the Austin-based band rave reviews by none other than Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke in a review he did for MOJO, praising the “power-trance trio” for their multifaceted roots grooves. Recorded by producer Beto Martinez (Prince, Brownout, Grupo Fantasma) and […]
Lunar R.A.E. (née AbstractAmb, borne of musician Amber Baker) is the badass behind the drum set with Austin-based band Sir Woman. Her work also includes performing with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and collaborating with bassist MonoNeon – no small coincidence he was one of the last musicians to work with Prince, FYI. Badass attracts badass. But […]
More Good Vibes

More Good Vibes

2021-07-0702:17

This is how you do it. Keep the streams going with a winning bill. The summer edition of The Long Center’s Good Vibes Only music series presents yet another stellar performance, this time by perpetually dreamy pop masters Star Parks, recorded in the Rollins Studio Theater. -Photo courtesy of The Long Center’s Good Vibes Only […]
Laying It Down

Laying It Down

2021-07-0602:10

Since your Austin Music Minute host instantly became a big fan, the excitement is palpable. A couple of months ago on the ol’ Instagram, Adrian Quesada‘s Electric Deluxe Recorders posted a couple of behind-the-scenes shots of  Buffalo Nichols (Carl Nichols) recording some tracks with drummer Brannen Temple and engineer Aaron Glemboski (Redbeard Productions). This is […]
The AMM has a couple of (very abridged) definitions to give you some perspective on today’s featured artist. First, there’s archeology, stories from the excavation and analysis of various objects; and surrealism, creativity stemming from the unconscious mind. In a way, renown cellist and songwriter Helen Gillet applies both to her work as a self-described […]

Pull Up

Pull Up

2021-07-0202:30

The delivery is as raw and unabashed as the emotion you’re getting in the music. J Soulja has the fire and the drive keeping him on point, weaving lyricism that shows no mercy. But J Soulja also uses his unique platform to uplift his fellow artists. Supporting the community is at the top of his […]
-Artwork by Chase Maclaskey Harmeier. Mike and The Moonpies‘ latest Texas boogie shakedown “Paycheck To Paycheck” is undeniably a major tip o’ the cowboy hat to an OG badass known for creating a chorus of the ages that folks might’ve fantasized about singing to their employers. Yes, most people hold dear a very special 1980 […]
Counter Jams

Counter Jams

2021-06-3002:01

Your Austin Music Minute host has mentioned this before: You can’t shut off the creative flow in your brain like a faucet. The music keeps grinding the gears. Any spot will serve as an impromptu music space to get those notes out, even if it means recording on your phone. So, it’s badass to see […]
