Whether it’s catchy dance tracks, campy rock songs, or edgy electro-fuzz, the album delivers the eclectic sound without ever sounding confused.

  • The Sessions Presents: X Ambassadors – “Litost”

    (Bio via ACLFestival.com) For X Ambassadors, an unshakable sense of brotherhood has long shaped the sound and spirit of the band. Growing up in small-town upstate New York, frontman Sam Harris, his brother Casey, and childhood friend Noah Feldshuh bonded over an obsessive love for punk, rock & roll, soul, and hip-hop that defied the conventions of their peer group. Forming their first band in middle school, the three channeled their infatuation with artists as eclectic as The Stooges and […]

    Summer Land Tour – Everclear, Live

    Art Alexakis may not be a paradigm of business savvy as far managing his own personal finances.  In 2005, the lead singer of Everclear owed over two million dollars in unpaid taxes to the IRS, had maxed out all of his credit lines, and declared bankruptcy, forcing him to sell all of the rights to the entire Everclear catalogue.  Despite his all of this, Art has shown resilience and is now the the brainchild of the nascent and successful Summer Land Tour series.  Summer Land is an annual […]

    Third Eye Blind, who dropped classic tunes such as “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Jumper” and “Never Let You Go,” will be back as one of the main attractions of SXSW 2013. Frontman, Stephan Jenkins, and company are working on their fifth studio album to follow up 2009’s “Ursa Major” which debuted No. 1 on the digital charts that rocked capacity crowds in Austin in 2010.

    Summer Interview with Ghostland Observatory

    “Tonight we GLO!” the catch phrase my friends and I have coined every time we are getting ready for a Ghostland Observatory concert. If they play somewhere in Texas, there is a good chance we will be there. SInce their formation in 2003 Ghostland has formed somewhat of a cult following. Their crowd mimic costumes of Aaron Behrens’ once long braids and Thomas Turner’s Texas flag cape. The two band members have sold out shows across the Country and bring […]

    311 & Slightly Stoopid at Whitewater & RyMo Interview

    With more than a decade of making music together, the members of Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove, that knack for quietly, almost innocently, sliding into a composition, and utterly lassoing anyone within earshot by mid-song. That’s where the band has come to reside, musically: deep in the pocket, that ever-elusive, funky trench where a band can entrance an audience, hypnotize it and hold […]

    Rebelution “Peace of Mind Tour 2012”

    Santa Barbara natives Rebelution made their mark at Stubbs BBQ on February 10th, yet again. With a sold out crowd this could have possibly turned into a two night show. The release of their latest album “Peace of Mind” generates a reggae rock fusion sound. Lead singer Eric Rachmany’s vocals carry on a smooth sound that keeps every song catchy. As bassist Marley Williams danced around and strummed that first chord, the stage quickly filled up with smoke. Not only […]

    Making a Sublime Comeback

    I remember my friend popping the cassette tape in his car one day. As the heavy bass and drum started the album off, I was looking at this tripped-out sun on the album cover with the word SUBLIME on top and 40oz to Freedom on the bottom. I thought it was so sick. As the record (or tape) played on, it was tough to not bob your head to the jams. I instantly became a fan of Sublime and loved […]

We meet Milano in the parking lot of Music Lab in Austin and this Texas heat is hot as fuck. “Who is this interview for?” asks the front man of the notorious thrash metal bands Method of Destruction (M.O.D.) and Storm Troopers of Death (S.O.D.) as he makes a beeline for the recording studio. Surely he’s just reminding himself, we rationalize, because […]

    Blag Dahlia Talks 2011 with THE DWARVES

    The Dwarves are a classic punk band from the early 80s that formed in the underground scum-punk scene in Chicago, but are now based out of San Francisco. Their sound in the beginning was hardcore metal, with not so great sound production. They weren’t known for their sound though. They were known for their hectic shows that would normally last under 15 minutes, because they would get kicked out of their own show by the venue or by cops for […]
