If it seems like I post a lot about artists from Austin, TX, it's because I do. I'm genuinely excited by all of the amazing music emanating from the vibrant, no-longer-sleepy college town. My friend Jared introduced me to yet another great musician from Austin, and his name is Martin Crane.
Martin Crane On an Evening mp3
This track is from his Ocean Colors release, and side one can be downloaded (along with cover art) here. Martin's new demos, which will hopefully see release later this year once they are re-worked with a full band, are some of the best I've heard from Austin, or anywhere else, in quite some time.
Be Martin's friend on Myspace, and drop him a line to let him know what you think
