This week on Discovery Corner I’m featuring Austin, TX’s Balmorhea. They are a “minimalist instrumental” band, though according to the band they just play “music.” Their songs are dramatic and powerful and they should definitely be used as the soundtrack for a “tour de force” film. The last record they released was Stranger in 2012 so when I spoke to Michael Muller and Rob Lowe of the band, they were decompressing from months and months of touring and promoting. We spoke about which one in the band is the “tech guy”, what Austin is like this time of year and the cognitive process of creation. Get learned!
