Well, we had a few more interviews roll in, and last night’s huge show at Cedar Street Courtyard was a reminder that Wet Leg wasn’t the only big name on the bill. The Lathums have been huge overseas and hit the midnight slot, and we wanted to make sure those not in attendance got to meet up with the band. They’ve got plans for music in 2022, but they’re being really secretive about it!
I spent a lot of last year hyping Constant Follower, particularly around the release of Neither Is, Nor Ever Was. So, I’m really excited to see the band coming over here to play SXSW this year. We were fortunate enough to grab a few moments from the band and have them fill out our little questionnaire, with one of their hits below to sample.
SXSW has officially begun down here in Austin, though the music doesn’t kick off until next week, so you’ve got a bit of time to go through all our interviews to find some cool artists. One of those, Fanclubwallet, just dropped her recent single “Gr8 Timing,” with an album on the way; she mentions that below. She’s got three shows scheduled for the week that I know of, so be sure to jam to the tune below, and read all about the project.
One of the great things about SXSW, and perhaps one of the most important looking at this year’s festival, is that there are bands coming from overseas, who may or may not make it back…so use this as your chance. One such artist is CMAT, the Irish pop sensation, aiming to makes waves by coming to Austin this year. Check out the interview below, and be sure to bring cowboy garb if you show up!
You know we love the Drums, so why not start off today’s interviews catching up with Johnny Aries, who will be releasing a solo record later this year via Park the Van. It’s short and sweet, just the right teaser to hopefully get you thinking that Johnny should be on your list of acts to catch while you’re in town…if you’re in town. Also, since its early, hats off to Beck. IYKYK.
Continuing our push with SXSW interviews, and we’ve got one I’m stoked on as JayWood just recently signed up to work with one of my favorite labels, Captured Tracks. I was unaware of their work, so getting to know Jeremy through this interview has been a great introduction for me…hopefully it will be the same for you.
Well it is nearly time people, we have but one week left before things get a little nuts here in Austin and SXSW gets underway. Make sure you’ve stocked your fridge with the essentials and finalized any travel plans if you are visiting us from out of town. It will be a crazy week and you don’t want to lose time by not being prepared. With one week to go, we still have a few of our SXSW interviews to share with you all. Today I am pleased to share this one with Irish artist Sinead O’Brien. Hit the jump for full interview.
It’s Friday. And you’re looking at taking advantage of Bandcamp Friday deals. But, here, we’ve got more SXSW Interviews for you, as our eyes are on that prize…so to speak. We caught up with Best Move, as they prepare to head our way for the festival. As you’ll see, the band have a new album on the horizon with Park the Van, so there’s going to be tons of new stuff, so if you can’t make it to Texas, be sure to keep an ear out.
It’s so wild that SXSW is now kicking off in just one week and we can finally get out and see some live tunes again. As things draw ever closer, we have a few more interviews to bring your way which are hopefully highlighting some artists who weren’t already on your radar. Today we move forward with established NYC by way of Leeds artist Coyle Girelli. You can check out his responses and some of his tunes after the jump.
As we push through the final weeks before SXSW, we’ve got another interview; this one’s from Neighbor Lady, who will be working with Park the Van. In fact, they’ve got a brand new single to share with you today, so I wanted to make sure to include that new jam below. They’ve got a couple of showcases (Park the Van/Athens in Austin), and I reckon you can find them at some day gigs if you look hard enough. Read on and enjoy the new hit!
