Black Before Red - Belgrave to Kings Circle

Reviewed by: Russ Hockenbury (06/29/07)
Black Before RedBelgrave to Kings Circle
Label: I Eat Records
Release Date: August 14, 2007


Who:

Austin vagabond musicians who are friends with other Austin vagabond musicians in more popular bands like Okkervil River and The Lemurs.


How is it?:

Everything out of Austin in the past few years has had an underlying gloom to it and Belgrave to Kings Circle is certainly no exception. From the weary opening ballad of “Waiting for the Bang” to the laid back (but still decidedly gloomy) knee-patter “Spilt Milk Mistake” they work within the town’s infamous framework, occasionally borrowing from the west coast pop of decades earlier. It’s still an overwhelmingly Austin sound that Black Before Red possesses though. Which not surprisingly means this disc is very, very good.


Multi-instrumentalists love to play with themselves: “Spilt Milk Mistake”, “Teenage America”

I want to SX you up: Okkervil River, Sea & Cake, The Morning Benders
