Achilles Tenderloin is an Indiana folk blues songwriter with indie rock roots, whose music boasts heavily textured lyrics, passionate vocals and a uniquely robust guitar style.
Blind Oedi and the Case of the Secret Carnival (2012) features a variety of styles, ranging from guitar driven Delta blues to bluegrass fusion to lyrically charged American folk. Augustin's lyrics are largely confessional, with some songs telling stories, like "Little Girl Blue," and others sketching out emotional landscapes, as in "Cold Morning Blues."
