Bob Schneider - “Metal and Steel”
Austinite Bob Schneider has been making music for more than twenty years with bands like the Scabs, the Ugly Americans, and Joe Rockhead, though he has received more acclaim for his solo work of the last decade. Drifting in and out of major label deals, Schneider’s genre-bending sound has made him hard to classify, but his talent is undeniable. This song, from his 2001 release Lonelyland, is one of his more popular tracks, along with “Big Blue Sea” from the same record.
Sarah Jarosz - “I Can’t Love You Now”
Austin native Sarah Jarosz, not yet 20 years old, is a multi-instrumentalist (mandolin, clawhammer banjo, guitar) whose voice and overall sound have been compared to Gillian Welch. She made quite a splash in 2009 with the release of her bluegrass-tinged debut, Song Up In Her Head, from which this track comes. Another song off the record, “Manssinneedof”, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Country Instrumental Performance; Jarosz has also been nominated for New/Emerging Artist of the Year in the 2010 Americana Music Awards. You may have also heard her intense cover version of the Decemberists’ “Shankill Butchers” on KXT 91.7 in recent weeks.
Bob Schneider - “The Bringdown”
Hot off the heels of his dizzying single “40 Dogs (Romeo and Juliet)”, Austin’s Bob Schneider brings a more relaxed mood with this song from his latest, Lovely Creatures. After gaining steam with his early releases Lonelyland and I’m Good Now, Bob signed with Dallas’ Kirtland Records to expand his horizons on a national level.
