KXUA: SXSW Photo Recap 2014

If you are into music, chances are you have probably heard of SXSW. It is a glorious time of year when the music industry descends upon Austin.  For older artists, it is a great way to connect with younger, festival-going generations, labels, and your fellow artists. For up-and-coming artists, SXSW provides an outlet to share their music to all who are within earshot.

Over the years, the SXSW has drastically affected countless acts, making it a music-industry-mecca, of sorts.

Check back this week for a post of video highlights and to see interviews with artists, including Phantogram, Miami Horror, Mas Ysa, Royal Canoe, Milagres, Classixx, Speak, UME, and many more.

Follow us on Twitter for more SXSW recaps: @KXUA

If you would like a first-person account of SXSW, listen to a recording with the 808 Underboss of Indie Dancefloor here.

THICKFREAKNESS 9.19.12

What’s happening, Arkansas?! Great show this week. After overcoming some technical difficulties I got the ball rolling and we enjoyed some blind pilot, black keys, and some of Jack Whites solo work. And to top things off it was national “talk like a pirate” day… so there’s that.

I made mention of a music video for Cheers Elephant’s song “doin it right” during my show and decided to make it easy on you loyal listeners. See the Link Below VVVV

Cheers Elephant “doin it right”

TWO IN A ROW! LOOK AT ME GO!

Throwing another Podcast up on the blog for all those who want to hear last weeks show.
We revisited our seldom listened to soft side, and even listened to some *gasp* pop!
But not to worry we made sure things ended hard and funky.

Welcome back to school, folks. Had a nice show featuring some of the tunes that occupied my summer, as well as some new music to the studio.

–>We also got cozy with the lovely voice of the Alabama Shakes, and then travelled up north to sample a track or two that the Harlem Shakes had to offer.
