Our SXSW showcases earlier this year featured THREE nominees – Hiatus Kaiyote, Wolf Alice and James Bay (for Best New Artist). — as well as year’s past, with Alabama Shakes making the list (SXSW 2012!)
Courtney Barnett – the only artist we’ve featured on MBE twice this year – is also nominated in the Best New Artist category.
Three of the 5 Best Dance/Electronic Album nominees came to KCRW to share those songs in a live setting: Caribou, Jamie xx, and Disclosure.
