Your Austin Music Minute maven has had the pleasure of experiencing a live performance of Little Mazarn‘s excellent rendition of Springsteen‘s “Dancing In the Dark.” Little Mazarn’s version thoughtfully forges its own modest pathway, stirring the heart in ways one wouldn’t think possible with a song often associated with an infamous dance scene in its music video.

Little Mazarn releases their second album this week, IO, on the Austin-based Self Sabotage Records label, which includes this lovely track and five original pieces. Vocalist, banjoist and songwriter Lindsey Verrill and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Johnston have this uncanny way of capturing what feel like specific moments in time, made even richer and more intimate through Mazarn’s poetic observation.

Little Mazarn’s album release show is tonight at the Cactus Café, featuring special guest, and one of the new album’s contributors, Will Johnson. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 8:30 p.m. Very recommended.
