Roxi Copland: “House of the Rising Sun”

By: Jack Anderson

Under the Covers weekend is well underway and with only a few days left of Love Austin Music Month we’ve found a perfect intersection among those overlapping circles. Classically trained pianist-vocalist Roxi Copland has shown off her Americana-jazz-pop chops across town since 2012’s Pretty Lies and now – a full decade later – this Austinite’s announced a new five-song EP. I Come From Crazy was recorded at Austin’s King Electric Recording and is set for an April release. If you’re the jet-setting type you may very well catch Copland performing at Austin Bergstrom International Airport before then. But going back Under the Covers, today Copland’s treated us to a fresh take on a traditional folk song. Copland’s version of “House of the Rising Sun” may veer far from The Animals rendition we’re all familiar with but its tightrope walk between revision and familiarity (including lyricsmore faithful to the original) is a great reminder why this Austin artist should never be overlooked.

So before touching down to the terrestrial for the weekend, let’s heed a far out beacon from Dallas duo Beekeeper Spaceman. The skeleton crew consists of guitarist-singer-songwriter Greg Brownderville and producer/multi-instrumentalist Spencer Kenney, who named themselves after […]

Lunar Gold: “Low Light”

Even though it’ll always be a nightly main attraction, the moon’s also been a hot topic thanks to recent international missions, both successes or failures. But of course, for every state-funded effort, there’s a private space venture in the hands of a billionaire. Which begs a question. Once corporations capitalize the moon, how much of […]
