Heaven Is Humming

By: Laurie Gallardo

Another instant favorite of the Austin Music Minute, immersed in brushstrokes of twilight hues… This is the golden hour in music form.

L.A.-based band Goon‘s debut LP, Heaven is Humming, was three years in the making. Front man and visual artist Kenny Becker took great care in constructing something simultaneously striking and odd, a bizarrely beautiful presence, an eerie soundtrack with elements of ’90s grunge reverberating in the dusk.

Goon is in Austin for a show tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, sharing a bill with Austin bands Ama and Spirit Ghost on Mohawk’s indoor stage. Doors at 8 p.m. Recommended.
