Recommended Tracks: Black Willow, Joy, Who Is Speaking
3. TC Superstar - Masc
Seriously, they might be the hottest synth-pop group based out of Austin, ever. If you still have never listened to TC Superstar, their debut album is a fantastic place to get familiar with their sound.
Recommended Tracks: I Don't Mind, Something, Don't Wanna Be
4. Sad Cops – Transition Songs
Sad Cops, a Denton based suburban rock quintet, has struck gold with their Transition Songs EP. With unique elements pulled from pop, emo, and rock, the buzzing band will soon break out of their local roots.
Recommended Tracks: Honey, Flashback
5. Triathalon - Online
There are a few artists that seem to never leave our top ten, and Triathalon is one of them. The cute and groovy instrumentals that sit under the poppy lyrics culminate into tunes that you just can’t stop listening to.
Recommended Tracks: Hard To Move, Bad Mood, Butter
6. Harrison Lemke – More Postcards From Purgatory
Returning to our top ten this week is Harrison Lemke with More Postcards From Purgatory, an album that discusses life, death, God, and myth.
Recommended Tracks: The Dry Places, Fiery Sword, Moving Blues
7. The Nightowls – We Are The Nightowls
Currently on tour, the stacked soul group with a roster of ten musicians that define the Austin soul scene impeccably. Since 2011, the group has played SXSW multiple years in a row, with many more electrifying live performances to come.
Recommended Tracks: Don’t It Feel Weird (Falling in Love), Lift Me Up
8. The Cactus Channel – Stay A While
The Melbourne collective’s third album represents a new turning point for the group. Focusing on a darker instrumental soul and funk sound, Stay A While sounds like a dreamlike soundtrack.
Recommended Tracks: Stay A While, Storefront, About Time
9. TC Superstar - Heat Death
Oh, would you look who’s on the top ten again... looks like TC Superstar. Maybe there’s a bug in our top charts, or maybe they’re just actually really sick and you should listen to them right now.
Recommended Tracks: Acceptance, Denial
10. Beams – Teach Me to Love
Teach Me To Love makes its way into the top ten with lovely alt-folk from Toronto based Beams. With a varied tracklist of gentle and dreamy, to hard and twangy, there’s a reason why we have Teach Me To Love on repeat.
Recommended Tracks: Berlin, Teach Me to Love, Same Old Exit, You Are an Ocean
