Brazos - "Day Glo"

There's something to be said for a distinctive voice. One that peers far enough out of its crate of influences to make its own personal narrative rise to the forefront. Martin Crane of Austin band Brazos has that subtle talent. On the song "Day Glo"—off the band's November 10th release Phosphorescent Blues—Crane's words flow from his mouth as jumbles of phrases ("I got many people to thank, but I can't write letters," "I don't mind dying when I make love to her") laced together by strings of rhythm and a fleetingly delivered meaning. Catch Brazos on tour starting next week with fellow Austin trio White Denim.
