Last week we introduced our new Austin360 Artist of the Month series with a feature story on Harvest Thieves, whose new album “Rival” came out Jan. 8. The band celebrated with a record-release party at Scoot Inn that for a while filled the venue’s indoor room to capacity, with a line for admission forming in the outdoor courtyard.

Here’s a short video featuring portions of two songs from the band’s set: “Lancelot’s Blade,” the closing track on “Rival,” and “Little Feet,” a song from the band’s 2013 debut EP that was written by Austin songwriter Mike Schoenfeld.

The band is back in action later this month with shows Jan. 28 at Cactus Cafe and Jan. 30 at the Blackheart. Also check out the acoustic video for the album track “The Least of These” captured last week at the American-Statesman studio.
