Barsuk's Newest Addition

Laura Gibson - Milk-Heavy, Pollen-Eyed from Mason Jar Music on Vimeo.

Barsuk recently added Laura Gibson to their roster and it looks like she will have an album out sometime in early 2012. Her last effort with Ethan Rose under the name Bridge Carols was tasty. You go girl! I can't wait to hear what's up next.

New Music from The Wandas

I kind of dig the Wandas but it looks like their two month tour is skipping over both Atlanta and Austin. Boo. If you're in the mood for a little Old 97s-flavor material, check out their new track "Longtime Running".

Emo's East

Believe it or not, Emo's is opening a new location in East Austin appropriately titled Emo's East. If you lived in Austin in the 90s you probably remember The Backroom. I had the pleasure of playing there once with my band and vaguely remember a stabbing occurring in the crowd while we were on stage. Moving along, Emo's has renovated the joint and opened it this week with a Butthole Surfers show. Yelpers are getting their mixed reviews on so I think I am going to have to investigate Emo's East for myself.

Father, Son, Holy Ghost

Today is Tuesday, the weekly national holiday for all music listeners. Yep. You guess it. Albums come out on Tuesday ;) Pick up a copy of Girls new album Father, Son, Holy Ghost. If you're into buying your music by the track, download "Vomit" or "Honey Bunny". The "Vomit" video is also on Myspace. You can thank me later.
