SXSW is just a month away, and we’re already getting rather antsy. We decided to try and squeeze in as much coverage of the many bands coming into town as we could, so we sent off a bunch of interview questions to bands we think you need to keep an eye on. Today, we bring you Kip from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, one of our favorite acts of the past 5 years, not to mention one of SXSW’s hardest working bands. Check it out for Kip’s responses… Read more
Still working through FFF8 material, we present a video interview with Small Black to feature. We talk about Snoop again, but really just end up chatting like schoolgirls. We like these guys as people now.
Click the play bits and watch.
Artists are milling about. We will corner and ask awkward questions. Ceremony was nice enough to take a little time and get conversational about a great many things like grammar, Snoop, spirit animals and more Snoop.
Hit play and be entertained by words and moving pictures.
When I look at the Fun Fun Fun Fest lineup for the weekend, trend setting new band Active Child is one of my must sees of the festival. We caught the live act a couple of years ago, serving as an introduction to the band, and the ATH crew has been fans ever since. Lucky for you and I, the brains behind Active Child, Pat Grossi, made some time to answer a few of our questions. Follow the jump for more.
Today officially marks the beginning of the 2nd weekend at ACL festival here in Austin. I’m sure many of you rocked out last weekend and will be nursing your wounds this weekend at home. For those of you heading out to Zilker, good luck in the rain! For those of you staying indoors, check out this fancy interview we put together this week with Jack Tatum of Wild Nothing. It’s pretty rad. Click read more for interview.
There’s not a whole lot of balls to the wall rock n’ roll acts hitting up ACL this year, but there’s definitely a few that I think you’d be disappointed to miss. One is Parquet Courts, and the other is FIDLAR. We were recently able to catch up with Brandon from the latter act to ask him a quick run of questions before they head our way to destroy our ears.

Like many of you out there, we hopped all over town during SXSW, and I think all of us caught Moon King at some point or another, and all with positive reviews. We were lucky enough to catch up with Daniel from the band before they head out on the road with Majical Cloudz.
Read on for his thoughts on SXSW, touring and the band’s future LP.\

We’ve already mentioned that the 7 day period of music we’re currently going through in Austin is just one of those weeks that seems to happen once or twice a month. One I’m personally excited about is the Sunday night show at Mohawk featuring one of my favorite new bands Beach Day. I’d of course not be doing my duty as a reporter if I failed to mention that the show is actually headlined by Blank Tapes with opening support provided by Deep Space. Prior to the show, I sent a couple silly questions to band member Kimmy. Her answers are after the jump.
We’re less than a week away from the glorious Austin Psych Fest, and with so many bands coming to town, we wanted to give you a glimpse of some of the lesser known acts that should end up on your radar. We caught up with Odonis Odonis while on tour with Metz. Below you can read their thoughts on touring, the fest and coming to Austin.
We’re only a day away from the exciting art show, Photo Pop 2012, so here’s another one of the great photographers that will be on hand: Randy Cremean. Randy’s one of the great men behind Soundcheck Magazine, covering music all over the country, but always representing Austin. Here’s a little about the man, the myth, the legend. Read more
