The Eastern Sea is one of Austin's up-and-coming bands of the moment. Their folksy edge mixed with bits of delicate background vocals and keyboard are perfect easy-listening. What started as the solo project of singer/songwriter Matthew Hines, the collective has evolved since 2005 to become a seven-man-band. You may remember them from playing at KGSR's Blues on the Green in August, but if you didn't get a chance to see them then, you can watch them at ACL. The Eastern Sea's second album, Plague, just came out over the summer. Take a look at their music video for the single, "A Lie" below.
