What You Will: “Time Holds Her Tongue”

By: Jack Anderson

What You Will isn’t the easiest band to Google, so we’ll break down the basics for you here. Chris and Jenni Wiggins started the group in 2010 as a straightforward folk duo, and after cutting their teeth at the Kerrville Folk Festival, the band’s expanded into an alternative-indie-folk-rock sextet. For the past year, Jenni and Chris have tided over listeners by uploading intimate performances at NeWorlDeli to their YouTube channel. But despite the charm of those stripped-down renditions, What You Will deserves to be experienced in full, which brings us to Nothing To See Here. Engineered by Justin Douglas at King Electric Recording right here in Austin, Nothing To See Here serves as a perfect studio debut for What You Will. True to its name, it’ll captivate your senses (no visual enhancements required) with some really well-thought out folk fusion and fantastic instrumental interplay. Nothing To See Here drops this Friday, so do What You Will with that information. But your official recommendation comes courtesy of one of the record’s rowdiest – “Time Holds Her Tongue“.

Formerly the frontman of Austin rock outfit Not In The Face, we named Terrell our May 2020 Artist of the Month, right around the same time he […]

Kalu & The Electric Joint: “Garden of Eden”

For the better part of the past decade, we’ve kept a close eye on Nigerian-born, Austin-based singer-guitarist Kalu James. James first caught our attention with intimate solo acoustic gigs at venues like the Cactus Café right around the release of his 2013 full-length The Offering: Flesh. After linking up with guitarist JT Holt, James co-founded […]
