I am old.
I haven’t been to SXSW in over 10 years.
And when I went it was for my cousins Bachelor Party which happened to fall at the same time as the Interactive Week. Austin was teeming with drunk nerdy people in lanyards speaking in tongues all over each other about “new media.”
Mind you this is before iPhones even.
In any case, the atmosphere gave me a kind …

Matt Woods: Artist You Should Know

Matt Woods’ vocal ability jumped out at me right away.
In a recent conversation with the British singer, he told me a story of how he began.  Hegrew up in the town of Cornwall, England and got his natural abilities from his mother, who was a professional singer.
Woods attended university in London, at Imperial College, where he loved to perform Beatles covers. It wasn’t until a …

Posted March 11, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 1,485 views]

Visiting Austin during SXSW gives you the opportunity to discover musicians and bands from all corners of the earth. But make sure you check out some of the local talent as well!
I’m particularly fond of the band Hard Proof.
Afrobeat music and Texas might seem like a mismatch, but this 9-piece band brings the funk and will have you dancing.  Hard Proof tightly fuses sounds …

British duo Public Service Broadcasting return to Austin, TX for another sure-to-be-exhausting series of performances for the hordes of music fans descending on the SXSW festival.
They are back promoting their nifty new album, “The Race for Space“, which is themed around the history of the American & Soviet space programs, using archival audio footage in lieu of lyrics over their crafty instrumental electro-rock tunes.

Revisiting the Roots of Now With Early Bjørn Torske

10 years ago we had Jobs, Hope and Cash…now we don’t have any of those. :\
If someone had intimated 20 years ago that Norway would the be epicenter for a modern Space Disco movement, it would have seemed like an absurd claim, as nobody cared about Disco and a great number of American’s wouldn’t have been able to point at Norway on a map.
Although Röyksopp’s Melody A.M. …

Posted March 9, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 3,076 views]

Even with thousands of bands playing, only a handful of bands usually emerge from SXSW as the acts everyone has their eye on.
Last year, Sam Smith played our showcase and, needless to say, he had a great year. We also discovered a young Irish singer named Hozier.
All this to say, these are the bands I’m betting we’ll be talking about in the months to …

Dolly Parton – “Jolene” (Todd Terje Remix)
Can Todd Terje do any wrong?
That’s rhetorical question because we all know the answer is NO!!!
The big Norwegian has been quiet on the edit front in the last couple of years, but came back recently with a new edit of Dolly Parton’s classic, “Jolene”.

Todd Terje gives the country diva a balearic disco rubdown on the edit. Nothing too …
