The Pauses Play Tonight at The Mohawk
I’m delighted with a recent discovery I’ve made, out of Orlando. Indie trio The Pauses caught my ear with the track “The Beginnings of Things,” which I mistakenly thought was on their 2011 eight-song debut A Cautionary Tale. Actually, you can find it on a 12-inch split they made with Great Deceivers. Either way, that got me hooked, and I’m enjoying the album as well.
Their sound mixes indie pop, a little bit of ‘90s indie rock, and a rather atmospheric ingredient that melds synths and guitar. You can even find a little bit of ukulele sneaking in toward the end on A Cautionary Tale, produced by alt.-rock/indie illuminaries J. Robbins (Jawbox) and engineer T.J. Lipple (Aloha). It’s the best of rock and electronica.
This is something you’ll want to check out. The Pauses will be in town for a show tonight at The Mohawk, 912 Red River. Doors open at 9 p.m. Very good stuff here, and a great way to kick off the week. Recommended.
