With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite local bands you shouldn’t miss if you’re Austin bound for South by Southwest this year!
Sisu is the brainchild of Sandra …
Oddisee is one of those artists who has been on my radar for years, both as a producer and an emcee.
I’ve played many of his cuts on my show, but I think it’s time to spend a little more time talking about what he does.
He has worked with the likes of Jose James, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus and countless others.
Oddisee mixes all …

In Greek Mythology, when one passes from the world of the living to the world of the dead, one must cross the river Acheron. Eternally, waiting at the waters edge to ferry the dead, the boatman, Charon waits for us all.

From DJ AnthonyValadez:
I first heard Austin Peralta on Tom Schnabel’s program. It was a live performance and I heard the voice of this kid who really loved his craft. Then, come to find he is the son of legendary skater Stacy Peralta. I enjoyed the sounds and that was that…or so I thought.
About a month later my friend Steve Ellison, who heads the …

Yes, I know there is a lot of list-o-mania out there right now (Phoenix pun, pretty bad) but I wanted to add one more to the pile. Earlier this month, NPR Music asked Jason Bentley to share his Top 5 LA Albums of the Year.

I will never forget Jason Bentley’s wide-eyed excitement when he first told me about the Tame Impala album earlier this year. They went on to become a station favorite and we finally got them in the studio. Despite a few technical glitches, it was great to feel their layered psychedelia washing over me.
They talked about how their music has a lot in common with …
The video for Flying Lotus’ new track “Kill Your Co-Workers” is one of the coolest I’ve seen in a long time.
Someone once asked me if Ii preferred robots to ninjas and I said ninjas without a second thought. But this video makes a great case for robots. They’re a lot more colorful, even if they are killing machines.
The track is off Flying Lotus‘ new …

From KCRW DJ Aaron Byrd:
Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? Well I have. It goes a little something like this, “Mom, meet Andreya, my future wife” Silly I know, but once you’ve heard this young Brighton songwriter sing, you’ll understand.
Andreya Triana has quickly developed a loyal following over the past few years after being featured on tracks by Aaron Jerome and Bonobo. She …
