So, no Autolux tonight. A friend of mine needed to jet out of town for a few days so I'm taking care of her kid.
Next week, two local Austin bands, Balmorhea and Mother Falcon will be playing a show together at the Mohawk.
I saw Balmorhea a few months back at Emo's. I had never listened to their music before the show, and was pleasantly surprised at what I heard that night. Their music has a way of slowly creeping in under your skin and becoming something so much bigger than what you expected. Their most recent album, Constellations, released in February, can be found on iTunes.
Mother Falcon is pretty new to the scene, but they've been creating a lot of local buzz with their debut EP, Still Life. The band was recently featured in the Austin Chronicle article about their July 17th show with fellow Austin musicians The Octopus Project:
"Under darkening skies the motif to "Her Radiant Limb" emerges. This is the arrangement from the group's Austin Music Awards performance during South by Southwest this year, the mass introduction to Austin and the world beyond that Mother Falcon had practiced for two years."
Honestly, I can't wait to see what else these bands come up with. If you're in town and not doing anything on the 15th, you should definitely check them out at Mohawk on Red River.
