We can’t wait to get to Austin, and we bet you can’t either. In preparation for next week’s festivities, we’re previewing tracks from a few of the artists set to play the Billy Reid/Third Man Records Shindig, which kicks off at 11:30 at Weather Up on March 18. Check out these tracks from Seattle four-piece La Luz and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Steve Gunn. And be sure to RSVP to the party here.
La Luz’s “Big Big Blood” is a sparkling surf-rock jam full of jangling guitars and vocal harmonies. If you catch their set, be prepared to dance.
Steve Gunn, who most recently made his name as a guitarist for Kurt Vile’s backing band the Violators, dishes up some smooth, straightforward Americana on “Wildwood,” well-suited for heavy rotation on your road trip to Austin.
