Austin music’s ambassador to the world, Alejandro Escovedo completely subverted the idea of “Austin singer-songwriter.” Credit a musical perspective equally Lou Reed and Ian Hunter as it is Townes Van Zandt. His next release comes courtesy of new supergroup the Fauntleroys, wherein he plays bass with an all-star cast featuring Richard Hell & the Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian, tunesmith Nicholas Tremulis, and drummer Linda Pitmon, all playing updated Seventies artpunk.
