Austin Texas is a Southern metropolis for new music, but you don’t have to drive far outside the city limits to find miles of eerie Texas desert. That’s where Cross Record’s ranch is situated, where their stunning album Wabi-Sabi was conceptualized and brought to life. The album reflects its environment, its sun-charred drones and thunderous storms of noise animated by Emily Cross’ restless whisper. Chicago post-rock is in the mix too, nodding to the band’s pre-Austin history, but those sounds have been transported to a foreign realm and converted into something utterly haunting and unique the guitar burst in this song is awesome.

Already signed to prosperous indie rock label Team Love Records, Texan band Cross Record rather aptly live in a place called Dripping Springs. Sounding as sadly rejected as their hometown’s name suggests, husband and wife duo Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski create haunting, atmospheric lullabies to wet your pants to. Like Daughter with an aggressive bite , this is sure to satisfy brooding weirdo-folk and subtly-progressive rock fans alike. Their debut Wabi-Sabi is due out in January 2016, so they’ll perhaps defy my two year rule. “Steady Waves” off Cross Record’s Wabi-Sabi, out January 29th, 2016 on Ba Da Bing Records
