Shearwater Live in Studio 1A, 2/29 at Noon
Austin’s Shearwater has made a career out of defying categorization and expectations. Led by naturalist Jonathan Meiburg, the band is in full bloom on its newest release Animal Joy. Full of ambition and rock thunder, Animal Joy is underpinned by tight rock instrumentation, and Meiburg’s soaring vocals giving the album anthemic heft. The band plays Sunday night at Antone’s and you can hear them recorded live in Studio 1A with Jay Trachtenberg Wednesday at 12 PM.
