Lizzy Lehman: “Technicolor Love”

By: Jack Anderson

This past year our airwaves have been kind to Benjamin Violet (better known as Pelvis Wrestley) and S.L. Houser. We only mention that because this upcoming weekend, we’ll get a chance to hear an album with imprints from both, one that comes from Lizzy Lehman. This Austin-based singer/guitarist/synth player first popped up on streaming a whopping decade back, on their 2013 debut eight-track A Place I Know You’ll Love. Lehman’s been a live mainstay ever since, but with the exception of a turn-of-the-pandemic team-up with Jinx McGee and a contribution to Project Traction last May, their studio output’s been relatively sparse. However, in the spirit of collaboration that surged throughout those last two standalone singles, soon Lizzy Lehman returns bolder than ever before with the help of a few friends. This Friday Lizzy Lehman unleashes a collection of eight outspoken queer anthems, featuring instrumental and vocal contributions from the likes of Benjamin Violet and S.L. Houser (the latter of which handles production as well). As such, Technicolor Love makes itself accessible to a full spectrum of orientations with a real rally for resilience, meaning all are welcome to attend the release listening party 7-9:30PM Friday night at BLK Vinyl. Today, Lehman kindly lent us a vibrant first look at Technicolor Love with the LP’s title track and lead single. Even if you identify as a surly boy or a dainty girl, you’ll appreciate the succinct two-minute strive for variety on “Technicolor Love”. Because with a chorus as catchy as this one, inclusion has never sounded better.

Felt Out: “Crash Inside It”

When we last geeked out over Austin’s Felt Out, we broke down their foundation as that of auto-tune innovators on the cutting edge of alt-pop. And following the first anniversary of their second full-length Until I’m Light, that’s clearly still the case for these multi-instrumentalist-producers. They still sound like a next generation Imogen Heap. Their […]

Tagua Tagua: “4AM (Acústico)”

Feliz sexta! Today we’re talking about Tagua Tagua, the passion project of São Paulo songwriter-producer Felipe Puperi. Now, Brazil is an enormous country, full of fervent creators; it takes a ton of traction to get towards the top. But in the seven years since Puperi launched off, Tagua Tagua’s become one of the nation’s most […]

Faaris: “Taken Not Given”

As our ever-evolving hip-hop scene steadily expands, so does the representation of nations, cultures, and identities from its contributors. And for some truly refreshing cross-cultural flavors that have made their way into the ATX hip-hop melting pot, look no further than Faaris. Brought up in a Pakistani household right here in Austin, Faaris brings a […]

Adam Sultan: “The Great Divide”

They say, “write what you know”. And in music, if you know something well enough to perfect its performance, that usually means you’ve absorbed the material enough to build upon it and make it your own. So let’s talk about Austin’s Adam Sultan. Sultan started off a singer-guitarist in the ’90s with Poi Dog Pondering […]

Flicker Vertigo: “Midnight Fantasies Upon Prospect Hill”

As an unabashed Pink Floyd fan, I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to firing up the Atmos mix of Animals on my home theater setup when the BluRay drops next month. Sure, the full record’s been etched in my memory forever now, but through the lens of the latest mix an full […]

Mountains in Stars: “Hazards of Loving Creatures”

You’ve heard it a million times before: a picture is worth a thousand words. But go ahead and try it out if you dare. Pick a picture and start verbalizing. Yeah…you’ll give up far before you get anywhere close to a four-digit word count. Music on the other hand? Each chord carries various connotations, which […]

Nané: “Always On My Mind” (Live in Studio 1A)

As with any active artistic community, the Austin music scene has suffered its share of too-soon tragedies. And the passing of Daniel Sahad – the flamboyant frontman of Austin sextet Nané who left us in April ’22 – still feels especially fresh in our memory. Thankfully Daniel’s legacy still lives on through his music, Nané’s […]

The Watters: “Set to Cruise”

Prayers for rain resonate all throughout the Lone Star State year-round…even in April with a once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse on the horizon. So without wanting to entice a cosmically inconvenient drench, let’s dip our toes into The Watters. This Americana soul love affair is teeing up to hit the two-decade mark, but the bond between husband […]
