The Watters Let the Soul Flow on Great Unknown

Hailing from Sedona, the Watters came to Austin with lofty aspirations and their latest full-length album, Great Unknown, proves they're on their way. Jenna Watters sings with a delicate fortitude that weakens one knees while her husband, Dan, provides deft guitar melodies that are complimented by a bold brass backing section. Production on Great Unknown is unabashedly expansive and the big band sound packs a whallop, but the songwriting is also intimate, striking a balance that draws comparisons to Fleetwood Mac. The Watters have incredible range and a surplus of talent, which is no surprise that they have a headlining show at the Mohawk on Thursday, December 15th. Dan and Jenna have unmistakeable chemistry and with talented group of musicians around them, there doesn't seem to be anything holding them back.

Tangina Stone releases new single, plays National Sawdust on 12/10

Based off the latest single, "Ride Off," off her upcoming debut LP ELEVATETangina Stone is adding additional musical and emotional layers to her already rich RnB sound. While "Wasn't Love Cafe" offered much of the same catchy, guitar-driven goodness found on much of her The Fall EP, "Ride Off," shows a different side of Stone and her music. Written in response to the passing of a loved one, Stone's vocals cast a sad shadow over the listener with long-held notes and echoing backing vocals. The instrumental, crafted by CJ The Great, provides the perfect paltform with its haunting synths and sparse guitar licks. An assist from emcee Crystal Caines brings the track to close with a different perspective about a different person. ELEVATE is a record to watch out for, and you can catch Stone live at The National Sawdust on 12/10. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Rodney Tennor celebretaes release of debut EP 'Smother' at Rough Trade on 12.05

Rodney Tenor's music embodies the same personality as Vince Vaughn's character in the indy-comedy classic "Swingers." His two tracks to date emit that same cool, suave confidence that approaces the line but never crosses over into offputting arrogance. On "Prognosos Hypnosis," Tenor sings sweetly over a funky, Neptunes-inspired beat, displaying the kind of range and poise requisite for any true RnB artist. His lyrics don't embody any sort of deep meaning, but contain vibrant emotional undertones that will resonate with all those who have suddenly found themselves "glowing up," as the kids say these days. Tenor has exhibited all the indicators of talent and potential on his limited offerings to date, and he will hopefully deliver on them with the release of his debut EP 'Smother' on 12/5, whose release will be celebrated that same day at Rough Trade. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
