Marmalakes have released three EPs and a 7-inch since 2008, with plans to release a full-length album sometime this year. The band began an account with a crowdfunding website, Indiegogo, to help fund their recording process and raised over $5,000 between October and November in 2013. Even Clothed, their last EP release, was not only musically different, but also put together differently then their last EP. The band began recording in chunks and took over a year to put it out. Time well spent considering most of the EP shifts their sound to more of a somber sound that is pleasantly comforting. Recording in parts made for a diverse selection of sounds throughout each track. It gives much hope that the new album will be nothing short of stellar.
Hailing from Houston, Buxton is set to release their new album Half A Native, on Mar. 3 through New West Records. This release may be their most realized album to date with the addition of elements of indie rock, psychedelia, and ambience to go along with the rustic sound most of their fans are familiar with. The concept for the album came from lead singer Sergio Trevino’s experience growing up as Mexican-American in Texas, but not being raised speaking Spanish. Their take on a variety of genres truly represents them as a whole.
