Scott Collins: “Sink”

By: Jack Anderson

What started off a decade back with Suicide Pistols and Southbound Drive has since changed course almost entirely for Austin’s Scott Collins. The guitarist’s raw talent had already taken him on national tours and landed him major commercial spots as well as local awards, all before founding his very own Chicken Run Studios in 2015. Shortly afterwards, Collins formed his very own backing band and capitalized on his longstanding, fruitful friendship with Grammy-Nominee Chris “Frenchie” Smith to produce the 2018 EP Roadmaps. And while Roadmaps charted a path of raw alt-rock, his upcoming sophomore album headed north travels in a decidedly more polished manner.

True to its name, headed north experiments with tones near-polar opposite of his early work with Southbound Drive, and you’ll be able to check out the full thing at the very end of May. You’ll have to wait a bit longer to catch Collins in concert (literally, thanks to his signature “trust fall” stage gimmick) but today you can enjoy the second of five new tracks off headed north, “Sink”!

Their unique placement of feminine falsettos over seductive, sample-and-synth-heavy soundscapes still inspires acts today, not just in the […]

We’re so over the moon from yesterday’s Lunar Gold premiere that we’re not ready to descend quite yet. 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 […]
