Perhaps the best-known musician to leave Austin in the current exodus from prohibitive property taxes and a more tech-oriented culture, Alejandro Escovedo recently explained his and recent bride Nancy’s relocation to Dallas in the Austin Chronicle, writing, “We needed to cleanse ourselves of the old, find something fresh and new…It was good for us to immerse ourselves in someplace we were not familiar with.” Bouncing back from the PTSD he incurred when Hurricane Odile interrupted his September 2014 honeymoon, Escovedo recorded his latest album, October's Burn Something Beautiful (Fantasy), in Portland with an amazing band featuring former R.E.M. members Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey, plus an all-star lineup of Pacific Northwest players including Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks); John Moen (The Decemberists); Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney); and Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). Indebted as ever to ’70s glam and rough-hewn NYC punk, Escovedo’s 14th album adds a tenacious and inspiring installment to the 65-year-old’s reputation as one of Texas’s very best songwriters.
