SXSW Interviews: DYGL

As I comb my way through the SXSW lineup, I continue to find more and more bands to be excited about. One of those bands is relatively young Japanese quartet DYGL.

We briefly caught her via email to ask her a few questions about her journey to SXSW this year. Read more

We caught up real briefly with Jordan to give you a glimpse into his world. Look for the new album, The Past in Not a Flood on March 11th, the week before the music kicks off! Read more
