You know those kids who graduate college without needing to get a job right away and go backpack Europe for months on end in order to “find oneself”?
Well, it happens when you’re older too.
Really, being in your 30s is all about trying to find ways to make life more like college (read: SXSW = Spring Break) so I decided to wrap up my SXSW …

Chaz Bundick by Jeremiah Garcia

Toro y Moi first came on our radar during the reign of Chillwave, lumped in with the likes of Washed Out and Neon Indian by music critics who were quick to put him in a box without much thought.
Five years later, Chaz Bundick continues to surprise and impress, exploring a sea of genres. His sound is whatever he is interested in at the moment. …

Our first live broadcast from Austin was on Friday for Morning Becomes Eclectic and we had set up a makeshift studio in the restaurant next to FLOODfest so I could easily run out and see an band for a song or too.
The Sweden showcase started at 11am. I’ve been obsessing over the haunting yet infectious indie rock of Amason for almost a year now …

Tei Shi

When those of us who are SXSW alum talk about the “good ‘ol days,” often we’re referring to the time when you could hopscotch from club to club seeing a dozen bands in a matter of hours.
It’s been incredibly difficult to do the last handful of years, but something changed in 2015. All of the sudden, what seemed impossible is now possible again.
As I …

Wolf Alice by Dustin Downing

Wednesday is a big day for KCRW at SXSW as we host TWO showcases — that’s 9 bands total!
Dark clouds have been hovering over Austin for much of the week, constantly threatening rain but never releasing more than a drizzle. That said, I was thrilled our day showcase was in the safe confines of the Convention Center’s Ballroom D.
James Bay was soundchecking when we …

I started my musical day with two very different female artists.
Ryn Weaver became instantly buzzworthy with the overnight success of her debut single “Octahate“, which has racked up more than 3 million listens on Soundcloud.

Earlier this week, she announced that her debut album “The Fool” is due in June and the title track was the highlight of her set at the Spotify House.
She has …

SXSW 2015 Day 1: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr and MPV

In many years of attending SXSW, I’m a little superstitious that the first show you see is often an omen for how the entire week will go.
In the case of SXSW 2015, I threw my bags in my room and hopped in a pedi cab headed for a house party in east Austin hosted by the state of Michigan. Yes, the state of Michigan.
