After All

By: Laurie Gallardo

After All: Episode One is the album by Austin-based songwriter Mélat. Love is the story she has to tell, and particularly now, the subject matter hits close to home when it comes to things taken for granted – gathering, socializing, human contact, something as simple as a hug. Even recently, Mélat posited the question: “If we had known in December how different our lives would look today, would we have done anything different?”

Mélat shared her thoughts following the premiere of the video for “No Promises,” the video itself a labor of love which involved friends coming together to create. “Reality takes no prisoners,” Mélat wrote, “The least we can do is seize the moment and realize the good times when they happen and honor those times with love, forgiveness, and respect.”

Mélat is the next featured artist at Lambert’s Dinner and A Show. Doors open at 7 p.m. tonight, Saturday November 14, at Lamberts, 401 W. 2nd St., in Downtown Austin. Guests are asked to arrive early for the socially-distanced show, and masks are required. Ticket info can be found on the Lamberts website.

What’s Yr Damage

Following the breakup of their previous psych-gaze band Creepoid, Anna and Patrick Troxell forged an electro post-punk dynamic as the duo Lovelorn. And now the ATX-by-way-of Philly outfit is ramping things up with two new additions to the line-up, guitarists Steve Pike and Kyle Harris. No doubt extra shreds will add even more discordant dimensions […]
