SXSW 2014 Interview: Natural Child

131202-natural-child-velvet-undergroundOne of my favorite bands of the last several years, Natural Child, is making their way to Austin, again.  Despite the fact that they always seem to be here, I’m always willing to go out of my way to catch their sets.  They’ve got a new album, Dancin With Wolves, which will be out by the time the band rolls into town for SXSW; it’s a little bit different than previous work, but equally as good. The Internet allowed us to catch up with them before they head our way. Read more
