The Austin 100: Collapsing Stars

Collapsing Stars

Hometown: Minneapolis, Minnesota


Why We're Excited:Collapsing Stars' languid folk songs are punctuated by forceful stabs of bluesy guitar — and, in the case of "The Storm," a few appropriate nature sounds. The effect can be whispery and beautiful, but the band's music maintains a welcome undercurrent of reflection, doubt and even dread.
