Brownout appears in a recent edition of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert video series. The live session featured a trio of songs performed by the Austin-based collective.
Brownout, who have recorded full albums of covers by Public Enemy and Black Sabbath, will release a new album of originals, Berlin Sessions, via Fat Beats Records on March 6. The album is their first full-length featuring original music since 2012’s Oozy and was produced by Los Lobos‘ Steve Berlin.
The record is also Brownout’s first with vocalist Alex Marrero, who was joined at Bob Boilen’s desk at NPR by guitarist Beto Martinez, bassist Greg Gonzalez, percussionist Matthew “Sweet Lou” Holmes, drummer John Speice, keyboardist Peter Stopschinski, trombonist Mark “Speedy” Gonzales, saxophonist Joshua Levy and trumpeter Gilbert Elorreaga. Brownout’s Tiny Desk concert consisted of Berlin Sessions tracks “Somewhere To Go” and “Nain” and from their 2017 Over The Covers EP “You Don’t Have To Fall.” Watch below:
