    Sue Foley (live recording)

    When Sue Foley moved back to Austin in 2018, she helped reignite the local blues scene behind her fiery LP The Ice Queen. Since then, she’s captured two Blues Music Awards (including this year’s Traditional Blues Female Artist) and, on the heels of last year’s blistering, low-down Pinky’s Blues, a double shot of Austin Music Awards for Best Guitarist and Best Blues. Foley’s next album will capture the Telecaster master as she’s best experienced: with two sets recorded live at the Continental Club.

    Bridge Farmers (vinyl release), Deep Cross, Slumbering Sun

    Vinyl color variants in metal prompt colorful descriptions. Bridge Farmers’ third LP Cosmic Trigger comes in creamy purple. Say … violet séance, or lavender smoke! “Haha, you’re right,” drummer Kyle Rice, who laid out the new orchid stomper, messages via Instagram. “Some metalcore band has Seafood Allergy-colored vinyl. I dig on ‘Lavender Smoke,’ personally.” Produced by the Austin fourpiece – Rice, bassist Garett Carr, guitarist Pete Brown, and bandleader Tyler Hautala – and mastered by the Tad Doyle, Cosmic Trigger fires universal doom. Voidless coagulation to astral ascension, Bridge Farmers’ earthen grandeur forges a crushing inevitability that plunges down, down, down into Hautala’s anguished vocal exorcism, like side-A leveler “Street Needles.” “[That’s] a difficult song to explain because it involves the pain of mental illness and the propensity to ease that pain with substance abuse,” emails Hautala. “I wrote it for someone very close to me.” Pandemic pulled this Cosmic Trigger. “We waited a year and a half for the vinyl,” details the singer-songwriter/guitar fiend. “We could’ve released it digitally, but it was important to have it come out on vinyl so the sound and artwork could be experienced the way [we] intended. Life is too short for compromise.”
