This time around we’re giving our attention to Reaches, the project of Justin Randel. If you get the chance to catch the act during SXSW, you’ll likely here new tunes from the forthcoming Wherever the Internet Goes, Sorrow Follows. Read on for Justin’s responses!
Seattle’s Flying Fish Cove first popped up on my radar with their excellent EP for Jigsaw Records in 2018; they’ve recently announced the follow-up, and today we have another poppy gem to indulge your sweet tooth. Keys and jangling guitars kick things off, you’ll be bouncing in a matter of minutes; those opening 30 seconds remind me of a “Boys Don’t Cry” era Cure, but in the end the song fits with other great acts like Jetstream Pony. In a year when indiepop has been few and far between, this is definitely shaping up to be a must have release; look for At Moonset to drop April 5th via Help Yourself Records.
You know that you’re coming to SXSW to find something new, so why not pencil in Atlanta’s Shepherds? They’ve got a forthcoming LP later this year, and they’re self affirmed Sade fans, so you can’t really go wrong winding up at one of their sets. Don’t believe me? Well, read more about them below!
Just last week we shared the new track from Mamalarky, who have some roots here in our hometown…so we reached out to Livvy to see if she could answer our questionnaire, and she graced us with the kindness to respond. We’ve also included the band’s tour dates during SXSW at the end of the interview.
When you come to SXSW you never know what you’re going to stumble into, but 9/10, its going to be something with a lot of buzz. In the case of Rosie Tucker, the buzz is deserved, with songs to support the current hype. They will be releasing Never Not Never Not Never Not this Friday via New Professor. Read on for questionnaire responses, as well as a list of SXSW shows.
Looks like our SXSW portion of today is geared towards introducing you to a few acts playing our ATH vs SOTO party, which is an all local show over at Hotel Vegas on March 10th. But, we realize there will be lost of travelers in town, so let us introduce you to the Black Drumset today, in hopes you’ll come out and see them; it’s FREE!
I’ve no doubt you’ve already heard me rave on and on about Fanclub, one of our favorite current Austin acts. Well, we realized that not everyone is as familiar with them as we are, so we tossed them our SXSW questionnaire, so you can all fall in love like we did. Plus, if you’re in town on March 10th, you can catch the band at Hotel Vegas for our ATH vs SOTO party!
It’s Friday, and we’re celebrating March 1st with the release of the brand new Dear Boy EP. What better way to celebrate than to get to know the project before our big SXSW festival (it’s only two weeks away?). Read on and get to know the group before they head our way, and then go listen to their new EP.
Here comes our interview with No Win, who will play SXSW, then drop their debut LP via Dangerbird at the end of March. It’s a busy time of year for them (and for us), so we figured we’d let you slide right in and get to know the band with their answers below.
It’s easy to find your listening habits run straight for a little while; you keep your head down and all the indie rock sounds the same…until you meet ZRN. They’re a doomy duo of ambient music billowing across the pond from Denmark. They’ve graced us with some thoughtful responses; the band plays March 13 at the Hideout.
