#40 Brazos – How The Ranks Was Won

A lot has happened to Martin McNulty Crane since he self-released his first album, Phosperescent Blues, back in 2009. He’s toured with the likes of Grizzly Bear, Shearwater, Vampire Weekend, The National and Iron & Wine, left Austin for Brooklyn, and reformed the band he calls Brazos entirely. All of those transformative experiences have given him the fuel for his second record Saltwater, and if this first cut is anything to go by, it’ll be well worth the wait.
