New Band Smell : Black Books

Austin’s Black Books is ramping up for the February 15th digital and vinyl release of their debut EP, An Introduction To… The quintet has already gained a pretty sizable hometown following in less than a year, and no less a source than The Austin Chronicle labeled Black Books one of “Ten Locals To Watch in 2011.” Now, I can’t speak for the entire Austin musical microcosm, but based An Introduction To…, I can easily imagine Black Books winning over audiences with their skilled musicianship and tasty arrangements. Highly recommended for anyone whose been petitioning for a Grandaddy reunion and those of you who love My Morning Jacket’s until they threaten to morph into Pink Floyd.

The band represents another branch on Austin’s cosmic cowboy family tree.” A.V. Club  “Top 10 Album of 2011.  It’s like listening to Band of Horses underwater… must be similar to that euphoric high portrayed in Tarantino films. “ SYFFAL “Pushes the experimental envelope a bit further than most ambient, gaze-y indie rock without losing that approachable southern charm.” QRO Magazine “Highly recommended for anyone whose been petitioning for a Grandaddy reunion and those of you who love My Morning Jacket’s until they threaten to morph into Pink Floyd.” My Old Kentucky Blog [...]
