Stream Pick: The Eastern Leaves

By: Laurie Gallardo

This is an AMM fave that’s also been a perfect addition to the coziest of quarantine moments. Give a spin to The Eastern LeavesLight Of The Lantern, and you can very well picture yourself in the lush, peaceful surroundings of the Colorado landscapes that the Austin-based duo keep in their hearts.

The Eastern Leaves features songwriter and musician Chris Brecht – also the founder of nonprofit Project ATX6, and songwriter, musician and photographer Megan LaPrelle. On a typical Wednesday evening, The Eastern Leaves would be sharing a bill at Hole In the Wall with Ethan Azarian and Little Mazarn. But, these being the most atypical of times, The Eastern Leaves made a new kind of residency. See them perform Wednesday nights at 7:30 p.m. (Central) (and on Sunday nights at 7:30 p.m.) on their Twitch channel. Donations are welcome via Venmo @theeasternleaves.
