FlecHaus: “Betelgeuse”

By: Jack Anderson

Singer Megan Flechaus kicked off her songwriting career at age fifteen and released her solo LP New back in 2014…but that was just the beginning. See, Megan moved to Austin shortly after gaining recognition based on the vigor of New and quickly formed her eponymous five-piece FlecHaus with a roster of musicians coming from diverse backgrounds.

Since then FlecHaus has accrued an admirable following and a few awards under their belt, thanks to the quintet’s smattering of indie, folk, soul, R&B, country, jazz, blues, and even a little bit of classical, all woven together with complex and infectious arrangements. Just last Friday FlecHaus shared a new single, one that ponders over the existential implications behind the star Betelgeuse and its potential supernova, and frankly…it’s out of this world.

Passiflora: “Backyard Birds”

Feeling the heat and humidity outside for just thirty seconds confirms it: we’re well past the season of birds and bees. Yet even as cicadas steal the atmospheric spotlight with that iconic, steamy soundscape of theirs, birdsongs never really go out of style – Cindy, ornithological vocalizations, or otherwise. So let’s talk Passiflora. Having only […]

Amy Annelle: “East Texas Son”

When you look past the vast sea of love lyrics out there, songs inspired by natural phenomena are just about the greatest equalizer across music’s history. And it makes sense; there’s something so primal and timeless about evoking the rumble of thunder, the whip of wind, or the roar of the ocean. Sure, you can […]

Karima Santi: “Arizona”

Short attention spans and TikTok sensations. That’s one of the biggest pairings in modern media today. So you can’t really blame younger creators for taking the quantity-over-quality approach and just cranking out singles, essentially playing a numbers game for potential traction. But let’s be honest. You’d rather hear something from a patient perfectionist than an […]
