I recently had the pleasure of attending Emily Wolfe’s album release party for Mechanical Hands at Holy Mountain in Austin, TX. You may remember my interview with her back in March, in which we discussed all of the instruments she plays, Austin as a music capital and her hopes for the album. I suggested that she would likely gain widespread recognition with the debut, and I believe that even more now after seeing her live. Emily has a great stage presence, rocking out on the guitar with her band while singing sweet melodies and cracking jokes. The crowd didn’t talk much, which is a good sign – they were too mesmerized. I would highly recommend trying to catch her show with the great Allen Stone at Brooklyn Bowl on July 24th. She will also be at Rockwood Music Hall on July 26th.
Here are two new singles off the album. “Lion Heart” is my favorite so far, but I like them all.
