Album 2 recording starts this week! It will be a 6 song release focusing on the best of what I’m playing right now.
Rough tracks are fully recorded now. I’ll be recording the final guitar, bass, and vocals over the next couple weeks. Then I’m hitting the studio with Larry Luddecke as the engineer to record live drums. Then on to the arduous process of mixing/mastering.
I’m betting this will be out by the end of April/early May but only time will tell.
Check back here for updates and keep listening! Good things are coming
Check out the review of my album by Overblown in the UK! Here’s a link: bit.ly/2ADqhxi
Here’s the excerpt too:
Look at his big, happy indie rock shaped face? How could you not like that chap? Luckily, his music matches his pictorial enthusiasm. We’ve got two ones streaming here from Austin Bullock’s upcoming debut record Step 1 Explode. First up is ‘Never Mind’. A jaunty, jangly, and up beat number, the song shows Bullock’s knack for a melody and subtle production.
Following on from that is ‘Naive’. A fuzzier proposition, the track delves into a more foreboding atmosphere with nods to post punk and alt rock. It’s a bit of a jam.
Also, fun fact, when you Google ‘Austin Bullock’ you get the Bullock Texas State Museum in Austin. Lulz.
Here's the excerpt of the review but please go to their site and check out the whole post. It features 5 up-and-coming indie musicians (including myself) and I'm so pumped to be included with these other talented artists!
"AUSTIN BULLOCK released his latest debut solo album ‘Step 1 Explode’ (available now). And off of that album, this little gem of a single named ‘Express Yourself With Dollar Bills’ lives within it. And with this, single, blues, rock, and an undaunted indie vibe is expressed to the fullest. First, listen to the solo. It’s glorious. The right amount of fuzz, tuned to the background of jammy riffs, dictate the face distorting pureness we feel listening to it. We just wanted more and more, and Austin’s going to make a mark in the industry. Refreshing and delightful, his EP is fabulous as well. Watch out world."
And here's a link to the song so you don't have to go digging for it:
