I sound like a broken record but I’ll say it again…Australia is where it’s at. Boy & Bear is another Australian band bound for Austin that’s sure to make some waves. Especially after being hand picked by groups like Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling and Angus & Julia Stone to support their tours.Their EP With Emperor Antarctica is out now and a forthcoming debut full length album is in the works.

Some might say that the one man band of Ryan Schmale, known as That Ghost, might be somewhat of a boy genius. Having self released three albums before he was seventeen would certainly classify him as ambitious. The now 21-year-old has recorded and is about to release his fifth album, Songs Out Here, on Two Syllable Records. Written partially on the grounds of author Jack London’s Bay Area estate, all the instruments on the recording were played by Schmale himself.
