One of the most agonizing things about discovering a band during the album recording process is just how long you have to wait to hear the songs you grew to love. Since discovering Brooklyn-via-Austin indie rock trio Brazos in the summer, it's certainly been quite the wait. But with details of their forthcoming sophomore record now out (Saltwater out via Dead Oceans on May 28th), the band is getting out and about a lot more often. This is particularly great new because the new songs are pretty incredible and of a wholly different breed than those on their debut Phosphorescent Blues.
Don't believe me? Check out this live session the trio did at Braund Sound featuring Saltwater track "Charm". It's downright glorious. And a pretty fair indicator of how great the band is live so if you have the opportunity to see them live, do it. Whether that be at the slew of dates they have line up at this year's SXSW (frontman Martin Crane's triumphant return to his home-state) or at their upcoming April residency at Union Pool in Brooklyn. There's pretty much no excuse not too see them and believe me, it's certainly worth it.
