I played Are You A Hypnotist?? by The Flaming Lips over in Memorial Park in Providence. My favorite Flaming Lips song. Check this video out but then you gotta go listen to the original track if you haven’t yet. It’s mindblowing. Have a good weekend.
This song was originally a banjo tune before I recorded it for my first album. Hope ya dig it
Did a keyboard rendition of my song “Repeating” from my 2nd album. Seems a fitting tune for quarantine life!
Episode 12 of busking with austin is up on youtube. I had Lauren come bang on some buckets and tambourines over by Canal Street in Providence with me. We did an impromptu blues jam and followed it up with the song Inside from my first album Step 1 Explode. Throw the video on while you “work from home” and enjoy the tunes. Thanks for watching
QUARANTINE JAM! I’m working on incorporating this funky keyboard into future performances (with myself on guitar and Lauren on drums of course). Hope ya like it.
Also, here are some new reviews of my latest album Wasted 8 from the past week.
Guitar-pop, tinged with psyche and fuzz, whilst always being able to bounce out a tune with pop-rock melodies. Austin Bullock is just about the best new version of yesterday’s sound around right now.
Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, the American Austin Bullock has been perfecting his DIY rock proposal both on stage and in his home studio since 2018, in addition to being co-founder and guitarist of the band Binge Magick. In 2020 the artist acts as a duo with Lauren Boucher on drums and they have announced three albums over the course of the year. The first of them, Wasted 8 (2020), has just been released with songs as appetizing as Don’t Be Like That, a song that combines country and grunge with a playful lyric, contagious guitar riffs, and a spacey atmosphere. An interesting proposal full of talent…
(Translate from French) We really liked the very DIY sound and the garage band style. The arrangements are efficient and dry, the title comes fairly quickly in mind!
The group promises 3 albums in 2020, let’s hope they manage to produce as much and that these releases will be received with sympathy.
Episode 11 of busking with austin is up! This time I played I’m So Tired by The Beatles at Fort Adams over in Newport.
Keep an eye on my upcoming gigs, February is busy with solo shows and Binge Magick shows. Also, go follow me on Spotify, iTunes or whatever you listen to music on because I got some new music dropping soon! Part of Me (single) is dropping on February 21 and a full album is coming in March!
Squeezing one more busking video in before 2020. This one features a killer folk song I got obsessed with this year, Million Dollar Bill by Middle Brother. Check it out on youtube and keep an eye on this website for upcoming gigs/releases. More music is coming your way!
Episode 9 of Busking with Austin is up! I went to get a christmas tree and played a quick song among the cool abandoned warehouses over in Cumberland. I play As Thick As Thieves off my first album Step 1 Explode. It’s pink and blue ’cause why not.
Next Friday 11/22 I’m playing AS220 in Providence! My favorite place to play smack dab in the middle of the city. It’s gonna be rockin so come on out. I also got a couple clips from the latest set at Beatnik’s up on Youtube as well so check those out. We covered Level by The Raconteurs and Believe Me off my second release. Rock til ya die!
Episode 8 of Busking with Austin is up. I went all multimedia on this one. I play an unreleased original tune and close it out with some tasty licks off the top of my head. Stick around for that and subscribe to my channel if you dig it
