Monahans {Automatic Buzz} Video Series


The roots/rock Austin-based Monahans usually fuels my daily soundtrack. We were stoked to have them come into Refueled mag's creative lab/studio while in town and perform "We Tremble" LIVE for the {Automatic Buzz} video series.

Monahans, named for a region of desolate West Texas sand hills, balances thundering rhythms and atmospheric "landscape rock" with urgent pop anthems and spiritual campfire balladry (Explosions In the Sky + R.E.M + Neil Young). Since their 2006 inception, Monahans have toured in support of Centro-matic and Cowboy Junkies, and played alongside the likes of J. Tillman & Magnolia Electric Co. Albums to date include Low Pining (2007, Undertow) and the 2009 Misra debut Dim The Aurora.

"We Tremble" was the July release from the 2010 Recordings; a collection of songs being released once a month through the end of the year. All the tracks released to date can be downloaded FREE.
