Catch One of the Last Great 2015 Austin Indie Releases- Darkbird's "I Remember Feeling My Fingers Slip"

So there you are, sitting around in your bathrobe, feeling like a lost dog, thumbing through NYE photos and wondering, “What the hell happened to 2015?” Well, that shit’s gone. Time to deal with it and accept that we’ve seen the last of that year...at least, that is, for the most part.

It just so happens that one fine thing that emerged at the tail end of last year was a fantastic EP release from the folks of the band Darkbird, one of our co-winners for December’s Artist of the Month Poll. Darkbird released their first EP early December 2015 entitled “I Remember Feeling My Fingers Slip,” and with the alluring voice of front woman Kelly Barnes, and the dark tantalizing sound from guitarist Brian Cole, a listen or two to this new moody record from one of Austin’s best emerging indie rock bands is definitely something to pencil in your 2016 schedule.

You can also catch their next show January 3rd (tomorrow, for those reading this at posting) at The Sidewinder- a free show as part of our city’s very badass “Free Week”. If you can’t catch that show, don’t worry; they have a very busy schedule for free week and are playing multiple shows, so go and check out their Facebook page to see which one of their next shows you can attend. While you’re at it, how about throw them a like so you can keep up and support another great local Austin band, and one that you (that being our dear readers) have voted into glory and fame (or something like that) on this very site.

Entangled in the sounds of People With Accents

An interesting name for a band that produces an interesting sound, People With Accents call to both the "90's indie" and "math rocker" in us all. Their music is so easy to get lost in, complexly blending the technicality of progressive math rock with the soft yet forceful delight of 90's indie (think Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Sunny Day Real Estate and at times, Cursive). The two facets of People With Accents, Jacob Saulsbury and Alex McEntee, released their self titled debut back in 2012, and dropped You Could Be Wrong last year. Revel in their track "Abandon All Hope/Hope Springs Etenal," below.

Providence rock quartet The Attending plays The Met on January 8th

Bookended by the guitar-strummed memory songs “Picking Up Speed” and “Cash” (about the titular musician and his brother) and including the drum-surged track “Not the Books to Read” (streaming below), ‘Deep Peace of the Singing Earth’ by Providence rock quartet The Attending is a piercingly moving album. As The Antlers did on ‘Hospice,’ The Attending bravely unburies pain on this March-released effort but also allows for a catharsis that perhaps only music can provide. The Attending plays at The Met in Providence on January 8th. - Zach Weg





Get post-holiday happy with Sad Horse

It's been a wet holiday so far, so if you weren't able to make it out to that free Sad Horse show with Haunted Head and Warm Trash a couple nights ago, you're actually in luck. New Years night, they'll be playing their latest album, start to finish, at Mississippi Records. Their Greatest Hits LP is comprised of just that, a grandiose collection of singles from the last almost eight years of their existence. The 26 track long LP of pleasant familiarity is also now available on vinyl. If you're just now getting into Sad Horse (or SH, as they now like to be referred to as), then check out their Greatest Hits record release set for a crash course in the delight that is SH.
