Hmmhmmm yeah… We know Austin’s Speak from their Jukebox The Ghost remix from a year ago, but now we need to know them for their entrancing original jams like the slinky “Peaks”. Their Soundcloud is full of jams I have to get caught up and but this 2 day old track implies that there is more to come. Yes please!
As if Austin, TX, wasn’t musically famous enough for SXSW now Max Frost is bound to put his town on the map again. His slinking, funked up jams are crafted to burrow deep in your mind and pull out deep thoughts and even deeper dance moves. Get into “White Lies” to warm up and “Nice and Slow” to cool down. Two sides of a damn talented coin.

I hadn’t made the connection until I sat down to write this post but Ghostland Observatory really do remind me of what GMPD could have evolved into: Part Daft Punk, part Prince, part Queen. Freeheart Lover has the exact rock edge I am missing from GMPD’s now album. But enough lamenting, on with the music! Ghostland Observatory are from Austin, Texas and I definitely get a bit of social-misfit vibe from their photos. (I once lived with a dude that rocked the pigtail-braids and he was both socially and hygienically challenged) But fear not, you dont have to invite them in for dinner, just invite them into your heart. Oh, and let this track in too.
If you enjoy their company then pick up their latest, 2008’s Robotique Majestique.
