3 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Luke Winslow-King and his wife Esther Rose put on one of my favorite sets of SXSW ’14 at The Continental Club. They played tracks off their fantastic 2013 debut, The Coming Tide and some from Everlasting Arms. Based on that, I am going to go out on a limb and say, “Everlasting Arms is going [...]

last monthMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

During SXSW ’13, Christopher Denny had the 8PM slot for the Partisan Showcase. A relative unknown, without a new album out, the club was half-full at best.

SOPHIE – “Lemonade”

SOPHIE’s “Bipp” was easily my favorite single of 2013. We haven’t heard any new music from the anonymous producer since that song, though he’s been a recurring presence in the music press, thanks to his bizarro SXSW shows, his influence on the exciting PC Music label, and his explosive DJ sets. Now, though, he’s set [...]
