    Something wicked this way comes. Reach for the black ensemble in your wardrobe and join the fiends.

    25/01/2021 Duration: 01min

    Tip o’ the hat to Corey Baum of Croy and the Boys for doing it no other way than keeping it real. Quite simply, he’s living the reality. An album like Howdy High Rise (released via Spaceflight Records) so accurately pinpoints how the very culture of Austin is being dissolved by exploitative, bourgeois elitism that […]

    San Gabriel, the awesome solo project of songwriter/musician James Bookert (Whiskey Shivers, Wild Child) dreamily sounds more like a full band than the one-man operation it actually is. Bookert does all the writing, recording and production – mostly during any spare moments he can catch during his day job out at J&J Spirits in East […]

    The Lovestream

    13/01/2021 Duration: 02min

    The message is love. The music is funk. And when your Austin Music Minute host declares that it’s Bootsy Collins-approved, you best believe it’s for real.
