For a minute now, we’ve been sharing the music of Texas’ Blushing with you. After years of trying to figure out the industry, it seems that 2019 was quite the year for them. After their acclaimed new full length Blushing sold out of its first run and they went on two successful tours, they’ve found a way to end the year. Their new Audiotree session is it and it’s pretty glorious.
The energy of the band’s live shows gets fairly well captured here. The way in which the members let the music take them over is the sweet spot to this session. The searing guitar tones that fall across “So Many,” the way the bass lines cut underneath the vocals on “Last Time;” there’s plenty of weight to the set.
Of course the band brings it like they always have. On “Pressure” the band’s mixture of floating vocals and distorted tones create an energy that isn’t always on these sessions. With “Control,” you see how the band builds tones before exploding in sound. There’s also glimpses into how the band got to where they are and explanations about them.
The video can be viewed above, on the Audiotree website or on YouTube. The session is available to stream on all platforms. Blushing is available to stream on all streaming sites or it can be purchased wherever you download music. It can also be purchased physically directly from Wallflower Records. Blushing will be appearing at Cheer Up Charlie’s in Austin, TX as part of Free Week on January 02 and at Stubb’s in Austin, TX on February 08.
