SXSW Announces The 1975, Against Me!, And More

sxsw_2012-300x118Hard to believe, but SXSW has announced yet another round of new artists, bringing the total to an amazing 2,000-plus acts. But after seeing that the new additions include The 1975, Against Me!, and St. Vincent we have to admit it’s worth expanding an already enormous lineup. Also performing will be Kelis, Damon Albarn, Chromeo, Ingrid Michaelson, Kylesa, Speedy Ortiz, SZA, Lucius, Jacques Green, together PANGEA, Women’s Hour, Betty Who, and Lost in the Trees. You can view the full lineup here (warning: it’s going to take you a while to sift through), and catch SXSW from March 7-16 in Austin, TX.

Watch The New Video For PT Walkley’s “Leeches”

Screen shot 2014-01-08 at 9.04.25 PMJessica Lauretti, one half of OurStage alt folk artists This Frontier Needs Heroes, has directed the video for fellow New Yorker PT Walkley‘s new single “Leeches.”

Walkley is a longtime fixture on the New York music scene, having fronted the much-loved indie rockers Track Rabbit before launching a solo career. He’s also composed songs and scores for several films, including four collaborations with Edward Burns.

“Leeches” is from Walkley’s forthcoming LP Shoulders, out this week. It is Lauretti’s third video as a director. About “Leeches,” she writes, “What was my inspiration? The quick answer is that it’s my attempt at making something mainstream and commercial while sort of making fun of things that are mainstream and commercial. Girls! Kittens! Whoop! ;)”

We Are The In Crowd Stream ‘Weird Kids’

we are the in crowdStreaming a week ahead of its release date, We Are The In Crowd‘s sophomore full length, Weird Kids is a force to be reckoned with. Hard hitting and packing just as much punch as you’d expect from these New Yorkers, the album is a beautiful reminder that these guys are far from finished. Plus, I never get tired of hearing the melding of Tay Jardine and Jordan Eckes’ vocals in their signature call and response style. You can check out the stream below, and grab a copy when it drops Feb. 18 on Hopeless Records. You can also catch the band on their headlining tour with William Beckett, Candy Hearts, Set It Off and State Champs this winter. Continue reading ‘We Are The In Crowd Stream ‘Weird Kids’’

Tegan And Sara “Everything Is Awesome” Music Video Ft. The Lonely Island

tegan-and-saraEverything is cuter in Lego form, and Tegan and Sara‘s new music video for “Everything is Awesome” is no exception. Straight out of The Lego Movie, the song features a collaboration with The Lonely Island, and to be honest, it’s all a little weird. Kind of like a bunch of kids hyped up on sugar, which I guess is appropriate. But the childlike atmosphere of the video, and getting to watch Lego people on their adventures, makes the entire experience kind of fun, and kind of adorable. Check out the video below and catch Tegan and Sara on their slew of festival and tour dates this year.
