Austin’s Brazos Unveil Cover Art and Tracklisting For “Phosphorescent Blues”

23 09 2009

Delivering vocals as sweet as sugar sprinkled over delicate rhythms and soothing melodies, Austin’s latest indie sensation, Brazos, are trotting their way to our hearts with their delicious sound.

Brazos began as the solo recording project of songwriter Martin Crane, who debuted his smart, lyrical songs in late 2007 with the acclaimed EPs “Feeding Frenzy” and “A City Just as Tall.” While “Feeding Frenzy,” written and recorded in one feverish weekend, emerged as a delirious brand of catchy, multi-layered minimalist folk, “A City Just as Tall” came just as quickly but sharper, both lyrically and musically, and proved that Mr. Crane was up to an intriguing start. Crane tapped friends, guitarist Nathan Stein and bassist Paul Price, and after rolling through a few drummers including White Denim’s Josh Block, finally selected local drum-maestro Andy Beaudoin, whose credits include a Master’s in Jazz Studies from the New England Conservatory in Boston, to play the new material, and Brazos was born.
