Akina Adderley and the Vintage Playboys stopped by the Palm Door last month to bring their good time funk to the second ever Austin Chronicle Paper Cuts. If you missed the set from the Chronicle cover star, here is her performance of 'Attitude' (courtesy of our friends over at Austin Music Weekly.)
Gary Clark Jr, "When My Train Pulls In"
Good time to have the Blues: Before his July 16 show at Antone's and his new live EP Bright Lights dropping in August, the local guitar man hit LA's Bardot Hollywood for this crunchy grind through his classic from 2008's Worry No More.
Quiet Company, "Fear and Fallacy, Sitting in a Tree"
The first video from the rock quartet's upcoming full-length We Are All Where We Belong features Taylor Muse and company taking advantage of the Play me, I'm Yours pianos deployed around Donwtown earlier in the year. The album is due out Oct. 4, but the band are offering a free house party performance for one lucky winner: Visit www.quietcompanymusic.com for more info.
Bill Callahan, "America"
Fresh off the release of his new LP Apocalypse, the Maryland lo-fi icon turn Austin transplant got the Okay Mountain art collective to provide this animated gem for his new single.
Hospital Ships, "I Do Not Understand"
Last night David Bazan taped the latest in the ACL Presents Satellite Sets series at KLRU's Studio 6A. Expect that to be online soon, but in the mean time, here's the May set from Kansas' down-tempo indie pop crew Hospital Ships. Check out the rest of the set www.klru.org/satellitesets before their show at Mohawk on August 20 with The Appleseed Cast.
