Best Work of Art

2022-08-1502:18

Today’s AMM featured artist made their debut with the breathtaking “Isn’t It Enough,” an incredible voice ringing out from the mountaintop while simultaneously conveying an uncertainty of the future. “But what if this is all we’ve got? / We might not make it big, but we could have love. / And isn’t that enough?” And […]
Not Asking Too Much

Not Asking Too Much

2022-08-1302:10

It was the ultimate catharsis for Paige Renèe Berry, purging a lifetime of emotions from personal trauma into her songwriting. It was mostly to release and heal. But some of Berry’s writing coalesced into the debut album of Half Dream, Monster of Needing (2020), every word leading to a revelation of strength moving beyond mere […]
Perhaps there are a few noticeable stylistic differences in Father John Misty‘s fifth studio release, Chloë and The Next 20th Century, compared to previous FJM albums, but is it so removed from that magic spun by Josh Tillman? For example, “I Love You, Honeybear” (2015), is a swooning ballad with enough lush arrangements to make […]
Golden

Golden

2022-08-1102:10

It’s sumptuous the way these grooves rock. Hedonistic, even. The dazzling extra-terrestrial ensembles of ATX outfit Golden Dawn Arkestra may amp the vibe up several notches, but let there be no doubt about the electro-funky grooves of these Sun Ra disciples. Unleash “Phenomenal” into the skate rink.“Golden Limousine” is the sexiest backseat party on the […]
Mirroring The Vortex

Mirroring The Vortex

2022-08-1002:04

By definition, borders are meant to contain and define certain areas. But Dos Santos reveals what borders actually embody. They encapsulate the struggles, the triumphs, the endless ironies, the millions of stories of individuals and families coming to terms with their everyday realities. In the throes of the pandemic, within the turmoil and heartache of […]
We Need The Funk

We Need The Funk

2022-07-2302:19

Whether you grew up with Parliament’s music, or your favorite artist(s) served as a gateway through samples or covers, your life has undoubtedly been touched by the greatness of George Clinton. Those first parts of “Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)” set you off and before you know it, you’re singing […]
Nobody’s Home

Nobody’s Home

2022-07-2202:17

There were many changes afoot when singer/songwriter Caelin moved to Austin in 2015 from the Bay Area. Though she didn’t immediately immerse herself in her musical career or the local scene, she took to heart the encouragement given to her by Jimmy LaFave. Though he passed away before they could work together, Caelin never forgot […]
Summer Sessions

Summer Sessions

2022-07-2102:16

It’s as if the Austin Music Minute booked this one! But seriously, what a great way to kick off Jester King Brewery‘s music series Summer Sessions. Welcome to a double dose of AMM faves to start out the weekend: It all began in 2018, when rap artists ZEALE and Phranchyze got together with Gary Clark, […]
Shooks Up

Shooks Up

2022-07-2002:04

It’s all in the family. But if you ask, Marlon Sexton will tell you he got his love of music from both parents, though most folks are inclined to remember his father. It’s cool either way. Mom had tons of CDs that Sexton listened to when he was a kid, and dad’s life is pretty […]
A San Padre Trip

A San Padre Trip

2022-07-1902:23

You never know what’s boiling beneath the surface. On A. Sinclair‘s fifth studio LP San Padre, start with“Lean Into It,” the intense opener pairing songwriter/vocalist Aaron Sinclair with Sean Murphy that lures you in with an eerily soft build, compelling one to…well, lean into it. And lean closer. But mind the headphones. The acoustic traversing […]
Though the pandemic put most things on hold, The Belle Sounds‘ Noëlle Hampton could not take a break from music. Instead, Hampton and husband/musical partner André Moran kicked up the songwriting momentum and released several tracks, some of which became part of Stay Alive – The 2020 Singles LP compilation (2021). That was followed by […]
So, a funny thing happened this past weekend. Well, not terribly funny, but Urban Heat‘s Jonathan Horstmann lives to tell the tale on his band’s social media, and it looks as though some physical therapy may be in the not-so-distant future. Horstmann threw his back out (“…like a genius,” he says, in quiet exasperation) while […]
Run to the hills! Who knows what havoc these intergalactic fiends will wreak?! Though really, it’s pointless to resist the ruthless energy of Burger Babes…FROM OUT SPACE! as the gravitational beam draws you in. And by “ruthless,” the AMM means the beefy feast unleashed by Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol on their full length debut – […]
Whether you’re a Hole In the Wall regular or you’ve done your fair share of shows there, you’re gonna know the damn bathroom(s). It’s a living (mostly crude) monument to everybody who’s passed through, played there, drank there, partied there, all the things you may – or may not – remember. If you haven’t left […]
Today is one of those best-laid-plans scenarios, apparently. If you scroll down a bit to play today’s Austin Music Minute, you’ll hear all about Big Bill‘s release show for Public Freakout Compilation, originally set for tonight at Hotel Vegas. Calliope Musicals and BÖNDBREAKR made it the perfect line-up. Then, stupid COVID threw Big Bill a […]
KUTX’s The Breaks co-host Fresh Knight recently presented an awesome performance by ATX hip-hop MC/producer duo Magna Carda in Studio 1A, and you may have also heard KUTX morning host Taylor Wallace’s Pride Month feature on Megz Kelli. What could possibly inspire you more to catch Magna Carda’s set tonight, Thursday June 30, at Antone’s?? […]
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

2022-06-2702:17

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 […]
