Band To Watch: Injury Reserve

"Jailbreak The Tesla" is an evocative title, one that can work as a mantra for the Phoenix hip-hop trio that created it. "That was kind of the idea of Injury Reserve," says Nathaniel Ritchie, the rapper also known as Ritchie With A T -- "taking this thing that's supposed to be this futuristic modern car, … More »

Lizzo – “Tempo” (Feat. Missy Elliott)

One of the best and worst aspects of SXSW is the ability to wander from showcase to showcase. Sometimes, on nights when you're presented with an embarrassment of riches, you end up seeing a fraction of multiple great performances rather than sticking it out for a whole concert. So it went last Thursday night. After … More »

Stef Chura Continues To Be Underrated At SXSW

Stef Chura is the kind of artist that always feels underrated. Although the Detroit rocker's 2017 debut album Messes won her some critical attention and got her signed to Saddle Creek, who rereleased it a year later, it still seemed to fly under the radar of many. That's a shame. Messes was a … More »

Barrie’s Sweet, Soft Camaraderie Cut Through The Din Of SXSW

Pleasant may sound like faint praise, but it's hard work to be pleasant. It's even harder to be pleasant while sustaining people's focus. To do so in an attention-span vacuum like SXSW, where another concert is always waiting around the corner, is borderline Herculean. More »

Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

It's been a surprisingly low-key SXSW (aside from the Stereogum parties which were lit obviously) and I think that's a good thing. Many of the usual corporate sponsors sat out this year, or moved to their money to Interactive Week. That means fewer distracting pop star drop-ins (coughGaga) and more attention … More »

Car Seat Headrest’s Leveled-Up Live Show Lays Waste To SXSW

Back in February, Car Seat Headrest were the meat in a Matador Records sandwich at Madison Square Garden. Performing after buzzy upstart Snail Mail and before gloomy veterans Interpol, Will Toledo led a seven-piece band through a triumphant set that reportedly blew away many in attendance. I wasn't there, but my retroactive FOMO grew with … More »

How To Pretend You're At SXSW 2019 Edition plus The Official #SXSW 2019 Playlist

SXSW 2019 is in full swing, but perhaps you blew your conference and travel budget donating funds to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood or your local Premium Tequila Society.

The Lil Peep Documentary Is As Messy And Alluring As Lil Peep

When I think about Lil Peep, it's hard not to think about Kurt Cobain. Objectively, there are many similarities. Both were strikingly handsome young musical prodigies. Both were devastated by their parents' divorces. Both funneled their trauma and talent into revolutionary, contagiously influential new musical forms. Both coped with depression by abusing hard drugs. Both … More »

9 Steps To A Successful #SXSW [Ariel Hyatt]

"I launched my company at SXSW in 1996 with a dream to be a publicist and a stack of orange business cards that I had stayed up all night perfecting at Kinkos the night before I arrived in Austin," writes Ariel Hyatt of CyberPR.  "I remember seeing Joan Osborne and I also remember taking it very seriously because after all, it is a music conference. Amazing to think how much it has grown." TIP:  Remember to treat SXSW like a music conference and not a party.  It can be pretty over...

570JV – “Foundation!” (EP Review)

Today, we are diving head first into “Foundation!“, the new project by rising rapper 570JV that came across our radar via submission.  From the start of listening to this EP with “If I Die”, I was kinda iffy on the direction this project was going since we try to stay away from commercial sounding auto-tune type music, but as soon as “What You Need” came on with a hard hitting beat following with the tongue twister “Remember The Name”, this is the type of EP that shows the diversity of styles 5...
