The Austin, TX artist recently released video performances of UNKLE’s “Rabbit In Your Headlights” with Thom Yorke and IDLES’s “A Hymn”.
AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, Nov. 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Electronic indie musician 1st Base Runner has been busy lately, having recently released his debut EP “Seven Years of Silence”, which was accompanied by two epic Matt Mahurin-directed music videos (“Break Even” and “Only One”). Currently, he is preparing to release his 2nd EP “Ellis” on December 10th along with several new music videos on the way soon after.
He is also a music lover himself, as evidenced by his superb cover choices. 1st Base Runner has released their own version of one of their favorite songs, the classic “Rabbit In Your Headlights”, originally released in 1997 by UNKLE, with the memorable voice of Thom Yorke. This cover, released with an intimate solo performance, is exclusive to Youtube.
After “Rabbit In Your Headlights,” 1st Base Runner released a second video performance of “A Hymn” by modern post-punk heroes IDLES, who recently made their US television debut on Jimmy Kimmel.
Tim Husmann’s meticulous approach to music and production is evident throughout his releases on many levels. The songs are loaded with atmosphere, enhanced by deceptively simple mantra-like vocals and lyrics that gaze fearlessly into the void. Stylistically, this release should appeal to fans of artists like Radiohead, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, My Bloody Valentine, M83, Nick Cave, Beak or Exploded View.
Music is a constraint. In another life, Husmann performed with international artists in legendary venues across North America, from the Troubadour and the Fillmore to St. James United Church in Montreal, playing drums, synths and organizing electronic installations. live. For the brain of 1st Base Runner, it took a seven-year hiatus to empty the creative coffers of past projects in order to move forward with fresh new sound. Rising on his own, he sought to fuse his inspirations into a venture that united his love of vintage synthesizers, atmospheric musical acts, and surreal cinema. With all that musical wreckage and jetsam floating around in his head, he was forced to make his long-awaited return to the scene.
Born in Amarillo, Texas and having spent most of his adult life in Austin, Husmann now lives in the hills outside of the hip cultural capital. He creates his concertos conveying the ironies of the human condition from the privacy of his personal workshop in the field. A scorched freeway remote from the neon distraction of Sixth Street and the melting pot of live music of the Red River District, Husmann can channel the whistling wind through the thicket of these vast Texas plains to inspire the aerial waves of cascading sounds. which proliferate its pieces.
