Morning MP3s: A Thousand Cranes Seek "Mexican Refuge"

Travis Kershen (pictured) from A Thousand Cranes, who - despite how it appears the lovely poster - open Free Press Houston's Recession Thursdays tonight at Numbers with Tense, Future Blondes, Balaclavas and Voidmate was kind enough to send me his group's Mexican Refuge CD a couple of weeks back. To me it sounds like a five-part suite where "Refuge" might as well be synonymous with "Brown" - completely soothing and profoundly disturbing at the same time. Listen for material from ATC's upcoming album Wounded Crane tonight as well.

Here's some bonus video of Balaclavas at the Mink back in April. Get ready to adjust your monitor volume. - Chris Gray
