Black Joe Lewis Is Back With New Single "Culture Vulture"

 It's always uplifting news when some new Black Joe Lewis songs begin to trickle out in anticipation of a new album and tour. Joe and the sextet of musicians that make up his backing band, the Honeybears, are purveyors of down-home blues rock that has working class appeal, but also deftly colaesces with awe-inspiring technical musicianship.  The upcoming album features producer, Stuart Sikes, who is no stranger to Joe's music but also claims an impressive resume that includes past relationships with the White Stripes, Cat Power, and Modest Mouse. The upcoming album will be supported by a five week Fall tour that kicks off in September and will hit all of the major markets in the US and Canada. Unlike Gary Clark Jr, who rocketed into the stratosphere of the music world relatively quickly, Joe has been on a steady grind building his fan base outside of Austin. While there are plethora of music acts in Austin that come in a myriad of different genres and styles; Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears stand apart having a distinct Austin blues flavor that pays tribute to Stevie Ray, WC Clark, Albert King and other forefathers.  Though Austin is a growing town with a deluge of talent, there may not be another band that is as accurate of a representative of the city's charm and as deserving of success, as Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears.

Synth-pop artist VÉRITÉ to play unique show at National Sawdust 08.28

Kelsey Byrne, the Brooklyn based artist behind VÉRITÉ, worked as a waitress at the Times Square Applebee’s, (a position feared by most), for three years to foster her career in music. After receiving praise for her first single “Strange Enough” in 2014, she has gone on to record 2 EPs and a full-length album Somewhere in Between in 2017. The standout from that album, “Nothing” is a melancholic, electronic gem that includes all the elements of a great pop song. Her voice is airy yet commanding, the synths behind it powerful but not overwhelming. She will be performing on August 28th at National Sawdust as part of the Hum Series, a showcase that celebrates female and non-binary artists. This particular show will feature custom arrangements for an all-female pop chamber orchestra. - Lily Crandall

From the submissions: alt soul quintet Star the Moonlight plays the Knit on August 28

Star the Moonlight’s debut single “Don’t You Think You Wanna” is a groovy jazz/soul song you won’t be able to get out of your head. Hattie Smith’s timeless caramel-smooth vocals overlay the band’s funky rhythms as she pleads “Don’t you think you wanna slow down?” while Maximillian Zooi’s funk-inspired clarinet interludes give it a kick. Their first single is a promising sign of good things to come from the band; their debut album is set to come out later this summer. You can see Star the Moonlight live at the Knitting Factory on August 28. - Lily Crandall

Cape Francis, Hannah Sumner and Bonomo play The Revolution, #Vol. 29 on 07.28

National Sawdust’s monthly premiere of emerging local artists called The Revolution is set for its 29th iteration on Saturday, July 28 with a variety of new bands. The three local acts juxtapose each other in genre and songwriting, yet their sounds are engaging in their own distinctive way. Bonomo’s laid-back, silky jazz compositions are wonderfully playful and find grooves that slither around without becoming monotonous, and his somewhat subtle music contrasts his two contemporaries. Cape Francis brings subdued indie folk that transforms murmuring guitars into a roar of organic energy, whereas Hannah Sumner’s ethereal walls of synth pop wrestle with her restrained yet impassioned voice in a combination of natural and synthetic energies. These artists offer wildly different appeals and styles, doubling down on The Revolution’s commitment to diversity in sonic palettes. The show begins at 10 p.m. and you can listen to The Deli’s playlist featuring these acts below. -Tucker Pennington
