Love Austin Music: Berkshire Hounds

By: Laurie Gallardo

The Austin Music Minute is celebrating Love Austin Music Month with this badass gem, brandishing a magnetic hook that gets you right at the start, then keeps you charged with an animated Sparks-esque quirk/Roxy Music flair. Leave it to Berkshire Hounds‘ songwriter and vocalist Spencer Garland (PR Newman) to work up the pop-rock magic with AMM-featured track “Isn’t It Great?”, released on the first day of this year.
