Ximena Sarinana
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:25am @ St David's Bethell Hall (301 E 8th St)

    When Mexican vocalist Ximena Sariñana (hi-MEN-a sa-rin-YAH-na) released her debut solo album, Mediocre, in 2008, Rolling Stone gave it four stars and praised it as “one of the strongest debuts from a female singer-songwriter since Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me.” Recording the Spanish-language album was a natural step for Sariñana, who had risen to fame in her homeland as a child actress and had fronted a successful indie band for four years. “In Mexico, people believed in me as an artist,” says the fully bilingual 25-year-old. So when she began thinking about recording an album in English she was confronted with a tough decision: “Either stay in my country, where everyone knows who I am, or start from scratch and convince people that I’m worth it.” She chose the latter.

Ghosts on Tape
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:35am @ Barcelona (209 E 6th St)

    Ryan Merry, San Francisco based DJ and producer better known as Ghosts on Tape makes what he likes to call deep rave music for tripped out weirdos. While the many strains of house and techno make up the bulk of the Ghosts On Tape aesthetic, the phantom rhythms of Afro-Cuban drums, the smack of Miami bass and King Tubby’s delay boxes have all joined the party in one form or another. Chances are if someone danced to it, it will have been caught on one of his old Yamaha samplers, ready to be unleashed in the dance: on Wireblock, Planet Mu, Shockout, Innovative Leisure and Opit, as well as via Ryan’s own ICEE HOT parties. Recently awarded membership into the Red Bull Music Academy, we should all expect big things from this guy in the years to come.

    Ancestros music group was created in 2002 in Cali, Colombia. It was founded by its own director Esteban Copete. Who inspired by the music airs from the Colombian Pacific Coast, invited eight more musicians with the same musical interests to unify their music knowledge getting as a result this innovative music proposal. At the same time, these musicians wanted to offer a tribute to our African ancestors for the music legacy they transmitted to humanity. It is because of this reason why the group adopted the name “Ancestros”.

    In the cold and dreary winter of 2009, alone in his bedroom and hidden from the darkness of the world outside Justin Paul Vallesteros had begun working on something that would change his life forever. What began as a couple notes played in experimentation soon transformed into vibrant melodies that soon shook Vallesteros' musical foundation to the core. Guitar chords laced over pulse sating synth melodies and drum rhythms was a departure from Justin's previous work; he began to create the dreamy nostalgic pop music that is Craft Spells. Joined by Jack Smith (bass), Javier Suarez (lead guitar) and Peter Michel (drums), they recently returned from a European tour and plan on releasing a new ep February 2012.

    Jonny Corndawg is an infectious songwriter and burgeoning country star that worships the altar of Waylon Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver, and Michael Hurley. Born in Montana, raised in rural Virginia and now residing in Brooklyn, New York, Jonny Corndawg has been touring on his motorcycle since he dropped out of school in 2001. Since then he has played shows in every U.S. state, Canada, eleven European countries, Australia, Argentina and India. But you won't find him on CMT. His music is more in the vein of that obscure '70s gay country that housewives would discover on a Bear Family reissue in twenty years. This leatherworking, airbrushing, marathon-running cowboy troubadour combines his musical influence with the lyrical whimsy of Shel Silverstein to create songs that are nearly impossible to resist. In the past year he has toured and performed alongside such artists as Deer Tick, Dawes, Middle Brother, Michael Hurley, J. Roddy Walston & the Business, The Whigs, Futurebirds, Wanda Jackson, David Allan Coe and Gene Ween.

Juan Cirerol
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    From Greg Beets, The Austin Chronicle:

    For more than 15 years, Mexico City's Intolerancia has documented the bleeding edge of progressive Latin American music. Saturday's eclectic showcase furthers that mission. Hailing from Xonacatlán, Mexico, Sonido San Francisco specializes in a techno-savvy reimagining of the traditional Latin American cumbia that combines synthesizers and accordions into fresh rhythmic bliss. Bass aficionados won't want to miss Mexico City composer Alonso Arreola, whose breakneck four-string fretwork electrifies the senses without devolving into gee-whiz thwackery. Mexico City-based prog-rock quartet Turbina bounces back and forth from start/stop paint-peelers to artful slowcore passages to psychoactive noise-pop on their ambitious three-part opus, Leti' Hum Eek' – Inda Jani – Mish Masadi. Acoustic strummer Juan Cirerol's musical background includes classical guitar and punk rock, but the Mexicali native's current sound taps elements of gritty ranch folk from both sides of the border. Medellín, Colombia's Panorama pumps a breathless mix of proto-techno and futuristic rock that's straight out of Ric Ocasek's 1979, while Bogotá, Colombia, fourpiece Planes buries its stuttering synth-folk under a pleasantly discombobulating bed of blips, bleeps, and related sundry garble.

Lissy Trullie
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Clive Bar (609 Davis St)

    The world at large got its first glimpse of Lissy Trullie by virtue of an arresting image taken by Ryan McGinley for his groundbreaking 2002 Whitney Museum exhibit, The Kids Are Alright. A young Lissy, balancing brashness and innocence, leaped past a graffiti-ed bathroom wall, a pale, freckled sprite with strawberry blonde hair, serendipitously snapped as she dashed through an otherwise gritty tableau. Trullie has matured a lot since then, turning slimmer, more angular and intriguingly androgynous, her hair cut in a severe bob that Audrey Hepburn might have sported if she’d hung out at the Mudd Club. But the music she has created, with the help of producers John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Shakira) and David Sitek (TV On the Radios, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars), for her self-titled debut album is a lot like that famous McGinley photo. Dirty guitar sounds and driving, new wave-tempo-ed drums are countered by swirling synths, brass, and layers of heavenly vocals, a beguiling mix of the earthy and the ethereal -- with the riveting figure of Trullie at its center.

    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Elysium (705 Red River St 78701)
    Jack Colleran doesn’t sleep, and it shows. The 18-year-old producer, who goes by the name MMOTHS, has embraced endless nights and bags beneath his eyes in exchange for something more; a uniquely ethereal sound that’s entirely his own. Disregarding genre conventions, the Ireland-based artist and producer mesmerizes with sparse synths dripping in reverb, transforming digital soundscapes into organic songs, equally fit for both a night on the town and one spent indoors in the company of candlelight. He showcases this on his 2012 self-titled debut EP for SQE Music, where no sound, vibe, or texture is off limits.
    Growing up in Newbridge, Kildare, Colleran never had any illusions about what he wanted to be. Armed with his first keyboard at four-years-old, he insisted upon professional piano lessons. In high school, Colleran continued to immerse himself in music by playing in a slew of local bands, while also delving into the burgeoning experimental electronic music that the Internet afforded him access to. The moment he downloaded a demo version of Ableton Live during his final year of high school, he began obsessively creating his own tracks from scratch. There was one tiny problem though.
    "The save function was disabled in my demo version of Ableton," Colleran laughs. "I never saw the progress I was making in production because I couldn't save anything and listen back to it. Once I got the full version, I made my first official track."
    That track was "Blisters." In the song, a bright keyboard melody shimmers over a precise beat as skittering sounds taper in and out. International tastemaker blog Nialler9 immediately embraced "Blisters" touting MMOTHS as an "Artist to Watch". Quickly, the song spread virally across the blogosphere. As MMOTHS’ popularity continued to grow online, SQE Music got in touch in mid-2011 becoming his official home.
    "I actually signed the deal the day I got my final high school grades," he goes on. "It took me a while to tell my mom but I eventually did."
    Colleran had gotten used to recording all night, so he fervently began crafting the tracks that would become his debut EP under the moonlight. The subtle effects of this nocturnal writing process can be seen and heard throughout the five tracks.
    He adds, "The music doesn't sound like it's coming from another planet though. It sounds natural and organic. There's no manual for writing tracks."
    Songs like "Heart" break the mold. A dreamy synth line mounts as Sarah P from Keep Shelly in Athens gorgeously croons the refrain, resulting in a truly 21st century love song.
    Colleran explains, "I never have a set plan. Music just happens. I'll find a cool sound and write around that. I'm not a singer-songwriter who writes about a certain event, person, or experience. I just try to write music that makes people feel something. If they feel a bit uplifted, I've done my job."
    That's exactly how you'll feel after listening to the melodic warmth of "Summer" featuring Los Angeles’ Superhumanoids. About the song, he adds, "I wrote that song because the winter was coming and it can get pretty horrible over here. Summer was ending, and I wanted to keep it alive forever. This was my way to do that."
    The name came about just as organically as the music for Colleran. He reveals, "Guys call girls 'Motts' over here. I was uploading my songs to Soundcloud and I didn't have an artist name. I was talking to my friend on Facebook, and he was having girl problems. He wrote, 'I hate Motts' because he just broke up with some girl. I needed a name at that moment so I called the project ‘MMOTHS’."
    Ultimately, MMOTHS is going to kindle a new flame for electronic music, pushing it into lush new territory with the honesty of the young and impassioned. "This is the best job in the world," Colleran concludes. "Even if it all fails, I'm going to make music regardless."

    New Roman Times lays out New Wave/post-punk hooks 'On the Sleeve'. It’s got that dancebeat of Radio 4. It’s got the brooding of the Psychedelic Furs. It’s music for arming yourself against the world’s attacks on you. It’s headphone music for introverts who need to have a soundtrack to propel them forward on their mission. It’s train music even if you’re commuting in an automobile. It’s atmospheric in a way you wouldn’t expect, so that you’re waving your arms around, dancing by yourself, listening to old things like the House of Love and the Railway Children. And it’s all worth every moment of being lost inside the wonderful parade of sound.

Paul Collins Beat featuring Peter Case
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Easy Tiger Patio (709 E 6th St)

    Rock icon and cult favorite Paul Collins got his start with Peter Case and Jack Lee in 1974. Their band The Nerves toured with The Ramones and recorded a song called “Hanging On The Telephone.” The song would later become a hit when covered by Deborah Harry and Blondie on the Parallel Lines album.
    Paul Collins formed The Beat in 1979, recruiting members of various rock bands including Steven Huff, Larry Whitman, Dennis Conway and Michael Ruiz. The result was The Beat, a high energy rock group in the style of The Ramones, Blondie and The Dictators. As the story goes, Collins was awarded a record deal with CBS thanks to his friend Eddie Money and Bill Graham Management. The Beat played with many bands, including The Jam, Pere Ubu, The Police, Eddie Money, The Plimsouls and Huey Lewis. The Beat became Paul Collins’ Beat when a ska band from UK began using The Beat as their moniker.

    From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:

    Manchester's Dutch Uncles' debut, Cadenza, caused the press to coin "math-pop" to describe their oddly danceable tunes reminiscent of a hooky, denser Talking Heads. Clock Opera is an eclectic fourpiece led by former "pop-chop" guru Guy Connelly. The Londoner's debut, Ways To Forget, is due in April. With a deafening buzz already surrounding them, London's Django Django are a young quartet with a psychedelicized mix of familiar styles presented in a new way. Its self-titled debut was just released in the UK to roaring reviews. Maverick Sabre, aka Michael Stafford, was hailed by the BBC's Huw Stephens as "the male Amy Winehouse." The new voice in UK soul issued his first album, Lonely Are the Brave, in February. 2011's Paradise, the second effort from London's Slow Club, found the duo of Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor boldly exploring new sounds while retaining their quirky bubblegum folk appeal. One of the UK's most popular dance DJs with his own show on BBC 1, Toddla T (aka Tom Bell) is more dubwise than dubstep.

    From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:

    Music From Ireland is an arts collective set up to promote Irish talent at international conventions. Acts must first be invited to events like SXSW, then MFI steps in with support. Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands kick things off with a dance-synth sound that brings to mind the post-New Wave mod Eighties. Golden Syrup, released last year, added a goth edge to the quintet's disco. Lisa O'Neill, a new folk firebrand, was personally invited to open and perform with David Gray on his most recent tour. Currently one of Dublin's best live acts, Squarehead is threepiece garage band with Buzzcocks-like hooks and near-Beach Boys harmonies. Critically acclaimed throughout the UK, Belfast's Cashier No. 9 is an unclassifiable pop band that's drawn comparisons to such dissimilar acts as the Stone Roses, Byrds, and Flaming Lips. The Minutes play with a bare-bones urgency that's earned them a rep as "the greatest rock & roll band in Dublin." The trio's boozy debut took heavy inspiration from Thin Lizzy. Winners of the Northern Irish Music Awards Best Live Band, Belfast's And So I Watch You From Afar are an incredibly inventive post-punk instrumental band.

The Pines
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Victorian Room at The Driskill (604 Brazos St)

    Rising out of the prairies of the Midwest, The Pines are one of the most distinct and powerful indie-rock/Americana groups to hit the national scene in years. Emerging from the same Minneapolis music world that spawned such notable acts as The Jayhawks, The Replacements and Bob Dylan, The Pines have gathered a stunning line-up of musical talent, in both their live shows and on record, that has gained them a faithful and growing following. Frontmen Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt share a common musical language rooted in the songs and songwriters of their native Iowa, while each bringing a distinct voice and sensibility to the sound that Rolling Stone senior writer David Fricke called “quietly gripping” stark-country. The mysterious sound of The Pines fuses Benson’s ethereal, otherworldly, heart-piercing songs with David’s earthy, darkly romantic and rough-hewn visionary tales. With masterful guitar work, beautiful vocals and the graceful keyboard and vocal additions of Benson’s brother Alex Ramsey, the core of The Pines’ sound captivates and elevates with rare intimacy.
    Surprisingly, David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey actually began their musical partnership in Arizona, where they both lived in a Mexican barrio and first began playing together. The son of Greg Brown’s producer and sideman Bo Ramsey, Benson was reared on folk and blues music and continues to let those influences shine, even on louder electric songs. David also had a deep love for traditional music, and together the two of them started crafting songs that evoke the ancient, while incorporating newer rock and pop sounds.
    Committing to a musical career together, Benson and David returned to their Midwestern roots and moved to Minneapolis, where they slowly grew their band to include banjo player Michael Rossetto (Spaghetti Western String Co.), drummer J.T. Bates (Michel Portal, John Gorka), bassist James Buckley (Ed Harcourt, Daniel Johnston, Dosh) and Benson’s brother Alex Ramsey on keyboards.

    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ The Whiskey Room (503 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701)

    It would be hard to find a character in rock and roll who has played the part better than Tommy Stinson. From his beginnings as bassist of the legendary Replacements to his current tenure with Guns N’ Roses and Soul Asylum, Tommy has always done things his own way and has lived to tell the tale.
    The story begins with seminal Minneapolis band The Replacements. Tommy started the group with his big brother Bob at the tender age of 13. His spirited bass playing, sense of style, and impenetrable bullshit detector helped make the band special. He dropped out of high school a few years later to focus on touring full-time, and hasn’t looked back. Until the Replacements unceremonious demise in 1991, Tommy and his bandmates found themselves hazily thrashing through the world with reckless abandon. Their unpredictable shows are the stuff of legend — nobody that has ever seen the Replacements on stage will ever forget it. In the end, all he had to show for it was a few bruises and a hell of a reputation to uphold.
    Only 24 when the band broke up, Tommy set off on his own and formed the Faces-flavored group Bash & Pop. In 1993, Bash & Pop released the album Friday Night Is Killing Me on Warner Bros. His next group, the power-pop quartet Perfect, released a highly acclaimed EP and created a big buzz on the L.A. music scene. However, their 1997 full-length album was shelved due to record label tomfoolery. It was eventually released in 2004, under the name Once, Twice, Three Times a Maybe.
    Tommy’s life took yet another interesting turn in 1998, when Axl Rose asked him to be the new bassist in Guns N’ Roses. Since then, he has writing, recording, and touring the world with them. His fingerprints are all over the Chinese Democracy album and his signature presence on stage adds a unique dimension to this notoriously great live band.
    In 2004, Stinson released his first solo album Village Gorilla Head on Sanctuary Records. It was well received by the music press and fans alike. He subsequently toured behind the album backed by his friends The Figgs and Alien Crime Syndicate as his backing bands.
    In 2005, Tommy was asked to fill in on bass for Soul Asylum (with his high school pal Dave Pirner) after bassist and founding member Karl Mueller succumbed to cancer. The following year he helped finish recording The Silver Lining album with them. He still writes, records, and plays shows with the band whenever he can, and relishes playing with his old friends.
    There are no plans of slowing down in the future for our fearless friend. In August 2011, Tommy will release a new solo effort entitled One Man Mutiny on his own Done To Death Music and as well as continue to tour with Guns N’ Roses and Soul Asylum.

Wavves
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ Hype Hotel (504 Trinity Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    L.A.'s Wavves follow up their 2010 skuzz-pop masterstroke King of the Beach with Life Sux, the debut release from singer Nathan Williams' Ghost Ramp label. If the band's previous records were all about one man's self-loathing, this six-song EP takes that sentiment and generously expands it outward, telling the tale of two loathsome characters locked down in Bummertown. What follows is a downward spiral of wrecked cars, impossible dreams and fading faith set to pop-damaged punk and squalling grunge, and featuring collaborations with musical BFFs Best Coast and Fucked Up. Also, it's fucking fun, though in Williams' words, "If you hate yourself and other people, you might like our record." Williams has come a long way from his parents' San Diego pool house, where Wavves was born during a jobless bout in 2008. A series of small-run 7-inches and tapes paved the way to the buzz-building self- titled and semi-self-titled LPs Wavves (Woodsist, 2008) and Wavvves (Fat Possum, 2009). Both were praised for their inimitable brand of experimental surf skronk and lo-fi loser anthems, notably swathed in pot smoke and isolation. King of the Beach, recorded in Mississippi with producer Dennis Herring (Animal Collective, Modest Mouse), kept that blessed spirit alive but displayed a set of fuzzed up, fleshed out confections, and found Wavves expanded to a ripping trio, including current bassist Stephen Pope.
    Produced by the band and recorded at Infrasonic Sound in nearby Alhambra, Life Sux picks up where the last
    album left off: at that rare intersection where form meets friction. Opener "Bug" is an upbeat bomb lobbed at
    any enemies of fun-a thesis statement driven by Dino Jr. guitars and a pop-punk bass line. The blisteringly bright "I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl" offers an arena-sized appeal to everyman excellence, while "Nodding Off" finds
    that escape fantasy failing even as Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino coos sweetly over the encroaching grime.
    "Poor Lenore" is heavier and darker, awash in wasteland riffage àla Nirvana, and "Destroy" is severe, with
    Fucked Up and Wavves teaming up to thrash in vain against a crushing apathy. Life Sux closes with "In the Sand," a longtime touring favorite recorded live at Black Iris Music in L.A. with drummer Jacob Cooper. Surfy, smashy and brash, the song is a fitting finale and despite itself, offers up a near
    moral before careening into silence. After establishing his ennui, Williams offers up faintly glimmering hope in
    the midst of inertia: "Do what you wanted to do / It's all up to you." Fittingly, the launch of Ghost Ramp embodies this slacker-made-good philosophy. Working with other people's labels was a means to an end. Finished with the red tape, false promises and general bogusness, Wavves is now a movement unto itself, going direct to fans and friends everywhere.

"The voice is most effective when it's indistinguishable from the emotion of the lyric as well as the drama of the rhythm and chords" says NPR's Felix Contreras when discussing Y La Bamba's stunning front-woman, adding "...Luz Elena Mendoza stands very near the front of this pack." On Court the Storm, these ethereal vocals combine with bittersweet melodies and thrumming Latin-inspired rhythms to form an indie pop masterpiece.

Timbaland
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:15am - 12:40am @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    Grammy award-winning record producer Timbaland will release his new album, Shock Value III, in 2012. “Pass At Me,” the first official single from the album, features Pitbull with productions by David Guetta and was released on September 13, 2011. Timbaland also appears on David Guetta's LP Nothing But the Beat on "I Just Wanna F." with Dev and Afrojack.
    Timbaland has stamped his indelible imprint on the music scene since the mid-1990s. His production has helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Jodeci, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Missy Elliott, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, amongst others. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Timbaland’s musical influences cross cultural lines: he has been sought by diverse superstars from Justin Timberlake to avant-singer Bjork.
    Timbaland introduced a unique rhythmic style that defined the new wave of music in the ‘90s: R&B and hip hop amalgamated with an eclectic smorgasbord of effects held together by complex syncopated snare beats. His style burgeoned when he produced Ginuwine’s hit single “Pony” and debut LP Ginuwine…the Bachelor. At the same time, his partnership with high school friend Missy Elliott blossomed into a pairing that delivered Aaliyah’s double platinum One In A Million and the two artists became one of music’s most successful production/songwriting teams. Naturally, Elliott also looked to Timbaland to define her as an artist, and their work together (tracks such as “The Rain”) propelled Elliott to major stardom and critical acclaim.
    Timbaland’s trademark sound has spawned numerous imitators; yet, he has always remained the acknowledged originator. He began a new label in partnership with Interscope even as he delivered another three albums for Elliott, including 2005’s The Cookbook. He also launched Tweet, who debuted with Southern Hummingbird and produced Lil’ Kim’s “The Jump Off.” The Game relied on Timbaland for “Steer” and “Put You On The Game.”
    Along the way he built an impressive 5,000 square foot studio in Virginia Beach where he does most of his production and he travels regularly between that location, his Miami residence, and the West Coast. In 2006 he founded a new label, again at Interscope, appropriately called Mosely Music Group (MMG). Open to all types of artists, MMG debuted with a bang: Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous” featuring Timbaland hit #1, as did her album, Loose. In 2007, Timbaland released his second solo album, Timbaland Presents ShockValue (Blackground/Interscope/Mosley Music Group).

Anoraak
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:15am - 1:00am @ Malverde (400 B W. Seventh St Austin, TX)

    When Frederic Riviere says something along the lines of “the sun and the sea are really important to me,” it’s easy to think, ‘Oh great, another chillwave artist who enjoys long walks on the beach and sitting on the dock of the bay all day.’
    If only things were that simple. While he’s certainly into laser-guided synth lines and sepia-toned nostalgia trips, Riviere’s debut album as Anoraak (Wherever the Sun Sets) is more indebted to Italo disco, Motown-schooled funk and sepia-toned pop music—think: M83 on Ecstasy—than anything that’s lo-or-glo-fi. Which makes sense. After all, it’s not like the French producer/singer/multi-instrumentalist picked up his first battery-powered keyboard yesterday. Truth be told, Anoraak began as a bedroom-based project about eight years ago, as Riviere searched for sound engineer work and found nothing but bar gigs.

    Look for "Brown Study" by Boog Brown and Apollo Brown and the "Brown Study Remixes" featuring production by Georgia Ann Muldrow, 14KT and Illastrate.

M.O.P. (Mash Out Posse)
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ Haven (401 colorado st, Austin, TX 78701)

    Hailing from Brownsville, Brooklyn, Billy Danze and Lil Fame, collectively known as M.O.P., have solidified their reputation as iconic lyricists through their years of hard-hitting rhymes and unparalleled tenacity. Never compromising their style and having shared the mic with industry greats such as Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Styles P, Guru, ODB, Busta Rhymes, and Redman, just to name a few, the duo has rightfully earned its status as one of the most revered acts in hip-hop today. In the early ‘90s, Fame and Danze formed the hardcore group M.O.P. (Mash Out Posse) and subsequently released their debut single, "How About Some Hardcore," which soon became popular and led to the release of their first album, To The Death, in the spring of 1994. Two years later, they delivered Firing Squad. Their third record First Family 4 Life was released in March of 1998; Warriorz followed two years later, spawning the hit “Ante Up.” The success of Warriorz helped raise M.O.P.’s profile and garnered some mainstream radio attention. Label issues left the band adrift around 2002 until they were picked up by Roc-A-Fella Records and appeared on Jay-Z’s The Blueprint²: The Gift & the Curse. Although the group stayed active recording and making appearances on soundtracks, Rock-a-Fella did not release a full-length album from M.O.P. and the band parted-ways with the label 2005. They then signed with G-Unit Records and released the compilation M.O.P. Salutes the St. Marxmen. M.O.P. next released Guerilla Warfare -- recorded and shelved by Rock-a-Fella -- in 2006, and in 2008, the band released The Legends Underground, Vol. 5 and announced they had ended their deal with G-Unit Records. In 2009, M.O.P. released The Foundation through E1 Music. Two years later, the group went on to release Sparta, entirely produced by German production team The Snowgoons, through Babygrande Records.

    From Kate X Messer, The Austin Chronicle:

    Austin loves to bounce, so it's tough to imagine the phenom hitting Central Texas as firm and round as it has without the mad work of Austin ex-pat DJ Rusty Lazer – mish-masher of traditional NOLA sounds into bounce's hip-hop base and one of the fiercest ambassadors of New Orleans' original booty style – hitting the tables along with (Nola Fam's) DJ Q. Named for what it makes asses do, bounce has gained devotees through the aggressive touring of its gender-bent subgenre sissy bounce, typified by the lady notorious for shifting bounce's focus up front on her paean "Tiddy Bop," Katey Red (as well as fellow purveyors Big Freedia and the late, great Magnolia Shorty). Shorty, the bounce rapper whose life was tragically cut short in late 2010, lives on in beloved protégée Magnolia Rhome. And you know when Diplo said "Express Yourself"? Well, that expression would not be as unique without the urging of Big Freedia/Katey Red star pupil Nicky da B, also heading up this bill. The night will be firmed up with a generous taste of hot, fresh bounce, hip-hop, and dance crew up-and-comers right out of the oven, Nola Fam, Jean Eric, Rhodes!!, Nesby Phips, and LuckyLou.

The pounding garage soul of UK's the Heavy (you've undoubtedly heard hit "How You Like Me Now?" on your favorite TV show) makes way for the striking voice of Nigerian war-goddess Nneka, for whom comparisons to Lauryn Hill are well-earned. Brooklyn-by-way-of-Israel electro trio Balkan Beat Box whips up a radical gypsy dance party on the patio before reggae legend Jimmy Cliff closes the evening. This lineup is as hard as they come.

Canon
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:40am - 1:00am @ La Zona Rosa (612 W 4th St)
    An alias representative of the greatest book in all of literature, coincidentally homonymous with rapid-fire weaponry, carries lofty expectations and growing anticipation. Yet, this Midwest-born rapper’s aim is not to leave people in awe of his knowledge and delivery but to give the words of eternal life—66 books, 2 clips and 1 Canon.
    Aaron “Canon” McCain was born in Chicago, Illinois, in a lower middle class area, but violence and crime would soon force his parents to journey throughout the state in hopes of finding a safe environment for him and his two older siblings. And while Canon’s parents were married and present in his life, his dad worked at night and rested during the day; so his mom took on a more influential role. As an employee at Moody Bible Institute, she would try to teach her kids about God and made sure the family went to church. But for Canon, church wasn’t a place where he heard solid, biblical doctrine; it was more of a family affair. His grandfather was the pastor, dad played the piano, mom sang and everyone else was expected to attend but usually had ulterior motives. Yet, those religious surroundings may have kept him from turning to a life of crime like those in his neighborhood—being shot at over a bike when he was just a kid could have been a catalyst for violence because it did scare him enough to make him carry a weapon, but anything more than a cap gun was off limits. Nevertheless, Canon’s penchant for mischief did turn him into a modern-day, urban Dennis the Menace. At the tender age of seven, while living in Maywood, he joined a clique of youngsters who threw mud pies at houses and played pranks at school. But as kids mature, their propensity for troublemaking often leads to more dangerous territory. In high school, his friends joined gangs, and although he didn’t, he wasn’t just playing pranks anymore. Canon became rebellious against authority, skipped school and got involved in violent activity.
    Despite his disregard for life, he still couldn’t shake the reality that struck him at the age of 13. His mom had taken him to a Christian summer camp the previous year where he was recognized for his model behavior, but he came back home and his misconduct resumed. One day, while riding in the car with his relatives, they struck a tree and the car was totaled. Canon emerged from the wreck only to realize there was a propane tank behind the tree that could’ve exploded and led to tragedy. That moment, he knew God was saying, “I could take your life now…you didn’t go to camp for nothing!” So in between misbehaving in school and around the neighborhood, Canon grew more curious about God and wanted to try rapping about things he was learning at his church. He had also begun making his own beats and rapping with his friends, but there was no place for rap at his grandfather’s traditional church. Hoping to finally grab the mic and rock the stage, Canon started attending a Hip Hop church called The House. However, the lead pastor was more concerned about his relationship with God rather than his ability to rap about him. Pastor Phil and several other brothers at the church began pouring into Canon and as a result, he gradually came to know the Lord. Within a year, he had left behind his childish ways, was performing at The House and had an ever-growing desire to know more about the Lord.
    After high school, he left Illinois and came to Memphis to attend Bible College. He had also met Lecrae when he visited The House, so when he came to the South, Canon linked up with him, Pro, Chad Jones and others in Tennessee. He eventually had to leave school for financial reasons, but the knowledge and wisdom he was gaining from being in community with older brothers allowed him to grow beyond that of his formal education. And although he was now surrounded by budding rappers, his focus was on maturing in the faith; but they soon encouraged him to take all he was learning and share it through music. Canon took their advice and in 2009 dropped The Great Investment mixtape, which hit the Internet a year later to favorable reviews and caught the attention of listeners around the world. He has since been featured on Lecrae’s Rehab: The Overdose and several Reflection Music projects, as well as currently serving as hype man for Lecrae as he tours the country.
    Canon recently joined Reflection Music Group and now lives in Atlanta where he is preparing a full-length free album to be released this year. His desire is to contribute truth to culture while being true to who he is as an artist and a young person that is also influenced by culture. Canon wants his music and his life to inspire others to repent and trust in Christ, but also encourage believers to “be you in light of a biblical worldview.”

    Reid Speed has been a dancefloor destroyer for over a decade and is recognized worldwide for her skillful ability to throw down all genres of bass music in transcendental manner. She is currently most known for helming the Play Me Records and Play Me Too brands. 2011 saw her produce and co-headline the US portion of the groundbreaking Play Me Records Bass Monster Tour with FS & Cyberoptics, which was sponsored by leading EDM retailer Beatport. The tour spawned a #2 charting hit of the same name ("Bass Monster") by Reid & FS as well as their "Pussy Weed Money" Remix of "Die Famous" for Burn the Fire which also clocked in at #2. The success of the US portion of the tour has resulted in an upcoming Play Me Bass Monster Europe Tour, which will lead the brand and Speed to Europe in 2012 with Dubsidia, The Unik and Tha Trickaz. In just over 2 years, Play Me Records and Play Me Too have indisputably taken the Beatport charts by storm, with a string of #1 hits and top 10s, with nearly every release charting in the top 100. They have broken more new artists than any other label of its kind, helping to launch the careers of artists like Cyberoptics, FS, J. Rabbit, Run DMT, Twist, Figure, and Bare, to name just a few. 2010 saw Play Me Records voted Dubstep Label of the Year by Beatport and Symphonic Distribution.
    Since 2001 Reid has released a consistent stream of well received mix compilations and a slew of well charting original and group productions and remixes of many genres: drum & bass, 2 step, breaks, fidget house, electro, dubstep and even moombahcore. Those who love her label, have listened to her mixes or seen her live agree, whether controlling the floor, in the studio, or behind the decks, Reid pushes the music forward every step she takes.

    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:45am - 1:45pm @ Chevrolet Sound Garage (612 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    In understanding GIVERS, it’s helpful to think of a constellation, a configuration of points of brightness that when placed in succession, led to the Lafayette, Louisiana-based quintet’s brilliant debut. The metaphor proves particularly useful given the name of their album – In Light(Glassnote Entertainment Group) is a collection filled with joy and brightness, buoyed by constantly evolving rhythms, warmed by spangling guitars, and illuminated by the melodic altruism that is the band’s mission statement.

    The first point of light in the pattern stretches back to the band’s origins- lead singer/guitarist Taylor Guarisco and lead singer/percussionist Tiffany Lamson both signed up to attend the music school at the University of New Orleans in the fall of 2005. A fallen-through accommodation led to Lamson crashing on Guarisco’s couch, bonding over their shared love of sound. Guarisco's immersion in the sounds of New Orleans as a youth led him to play in handful of different funk, Cajun, and Zydeco groups. This influence on his playing was easily complimented by Lamson's strong upbringing and appreciation for classic rock, soul, and pop. The musical connection between them was immediate and thrilling to them both. With her drums set up in the kitchen and Guarisco on bass, the duo would play together long into the night, eventually singing together as well as finding their voices matched each others’ perfectly. “There’s a very magical part,” explains Guarisco. “We slowly started inspiring each other to sing more and more. Honestly, that’s one of the major miracles of my connection to Tiffany, and hers to me. We didn’t have anyone else in our lives beckoning us to sing out.” Guarisco specifically remembers an evening spent on a friend's balcony in Baton Rouge that sealed Lamson’s status as a genuine singer.

Truth Universal
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:50am - 1:10am @ Malaia (300 E. 6th St.)

    Originally born in Diego Martin, Trinidad, Tajiri Kamau moved to the Big Easy, New Orleans, in 1977 at age four. Initially wanting to DJ, he dove head first into Hip Hop in the mid-‘80s. His parents' tastes in political reggae and calypso, including that of Mighty Sparrow, Calypso Rose, and Bob Marley, informed his hip-hop collection and guided him towards artists influenced by the Nation of Gods and Earths. Truth's career began underground, dropping several low-key, street releases, like the "Dashiki Dialogue" (2000) 12"/maxi-single and the EP Plantation Graffiti (2001). A string of 12” releases followed, including “Four Track Mind”(2002), which afforded Truth the opportunity to share the stage with premier Hip Hop acts across the North American continent.

    From Kate X Messer, The Austin Chronicle:

    Austin loves to bounce, so it's tough to imagine the phenom hitting Central Texas as firm and round as it has without the mad work of Austin ex-pat DJ Rusty Lazer – mish-masher of traditional NOLA sounds into bounce's hip-hop base and one of the fiercest ambassadors of New Orleans' original booty style – hitting the tables along with (Nola Fam's) DJ Q. Named for what it makes asses do, bounce has gained devotees through the aggressive touring of its gender-bent subgenre sissy bounce, typified by the lady notorious for shifting bounce's focus up front on her paean "Tiddy Bop," Katey Red (as well as fellow purveyors Big Freedia and the late, great Magnolia Shorty). Shorty, the bounce rapper whose life was tragically cut short in late 2010, lives on in beloved protégée Magnolia Rhome. And you know when Diplo said "Express Yourself"? Well, that expression would not be as unique without the urging of Big Freedia/Katey Red star pupil Nicky da B, also heading up this bill. The night will be firmed up with a generous taste of hot, fresh bounce, hip-hop, and dance crew up-and-comers right out of the oven, Nola Fam, Jean Eric, Rhodes!!, Nesby Phips, and LuckyLou.

The aptly titled Still Living hits the streets August 23rd stateside via Lefse, and August 29th throughout Europe via Souterrain Transmissions. Ringing in at just under an hour, the double LP stays true to their psychedelic roots established on their self-title debut and immediate follow-up Monster Head Room (both via Woodsist), they step it up a notch both stylistically and sonically by enlisting the help of producer Robby Moncrieff (who also played a crucial role in the shaping of The Dirty Projectors Bitte Orca).

    The Jacuzzi Boys’ practice space is like most any other -- crammed with gear along with one of the guys’ record collections. But their band room happens to be located in a trailer tucked just inside Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on gorgeous Key Biscayne, FL. Just a few feet from their amps: tropical paradise. This is an area home to weird animals and buttonwood trees, located on an island just outside of Miami. “Miami is not known for producing many good bands,” bassist Danny Gonzalez concedes. “So, quite frequently we get asked, ‘would you ever consider moving?’ Our answer is always, ‘No!’ This is where our friends and family are from. Miami is such a part of the Jacuzzi Boys, as important as any musical influence.”

Sonido San Francisco
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:40am @ Bar 96 (96 Rainey St., Austin, TX 78701)

    From Greg Beets, The Austin Chronicle:

    For more than 15 years, Mexico City's Intolerancia has documented the bleeding edge of progressive Latin American music. Saturday's eclectic showcase furthers that mission. Hailing from Xonacatlán, Mexico, Sonido San Francisco specializes in a techno-savvy reimagining of the traditional Latin American cumbia that combines synthesizers and accordions into fresh rhythmic bliss. Bass aficionados won't want to miss Mexico City composer Alonso Arreola, whose breakneck four-string fretwork electrifies the senses without devolving into gee-whiz thwackery. Mexico City-based prog-rock quartet Turbina bounces back and forth from start/stop paint-peelers to artful slowcore passages to psychoactive noise-pop on their ambitious three-part opus, Leti' Hum Eek' – Inda Jani – Mish Masadi. Acoustic strummer Juan Cirerol's musical background includes classical guitar and punk rock, but the Mexicali native's current sound taps elements of gritty ranch folk from both sides of the border. Medellín, Colombia's Panorama pumps a breathless mix of proto-techno and futuristic rock that's straight out of Ric Ocasek's 1979, while Bogotá, Colombia, fourpiece Planes buries its stuttering synth-folk under a pleasantly discombobulating bed of blips, bleeps, and related sundry garble.

    From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:

    Manchester's Dutch Uncles' debut, Cadenza, caused the press to coin "math-pop" to describe their oddly danceable tunes reminiscent of a hooky, denser Talking Heads. Clock Opera is an eclectic fourpiece led by former "pop-chop" guru Guy Connelly. The Londoner's debut, Ways To Forget, is due in April. With a deafening buzz already surrounding them, London's Django Django are a young quartet with a psychedelicized mix of familiar styles presented in a new way. Its self-titled debut was just released in the UK to roaring reviews. Maverick Sabre, aka Michael Stafford, was hailed by the BBC's Huw Stephens as "the male Amy Winehouse." The new voice in UK soul issued his first album, Lonely Are the Brave, in February. 2011's Paradise, the second effort from London's Slow Club, found the duo of Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor boldly exploring new sounds while retaining their quirky bubblegum folk appeal. One of the UK's most popular dance DJs with his own show on BBC 1, Toddla T (aka Tom Bell) is more dubwise than dubstep.

Alpha Rev
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Buffalo Billiards (201 E 6th St)

    Half Greek, half Latin, the words pulled together loosely mean “the beginning of something new.” At least that’s how lead singer Casey McPherson describes the name of the group he fronts. It’s also an apt description of the music on Alpha Rev’s new EP, “City Farm: Roots.”
    McPherson founded Alpha Rev in Austin, TX in 2005. The band released its debut album, “The Greatest Thing I’ve Ever Learned,” in 2007. With the release of its sophomore album, 2010’s “New Morning,” Alpha Rev left its halcyon indie days behind, but not its independent spirit. The single, “New Morning,” went to #3 on the Triple A radio charts and the record was produced by Grammy Award-winner David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes, Sublime) and mixed by legendary Micheal Brauer (Coldplay, U2, Travis).
    On 2011’s “City Farm: Roots,” McPherson and company literally returned to their roots: the fans. Funded entirely with fan donations, the EP was recorded without a label. The band also turned away from contemporary recording practices in favor of a more traditional process. The tracks were all recorded live with all the musicians in the same room. This one-take approach harkens back to an earlier era, as well as demonstrating Alpha Rev’s continued commitment to sustainability and simplicity.
    Already garnering critical acclaim as well as national interest, Alpha Rev’s songs have been featured on television shows such as Bravo’s “NYC Prep,” the ABC Family hit “Greek,” VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab,” and The CW’s “Melrose Place,” as well as the major motion pictures “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “The Last Song.” Alpha Rev has shared the stage with OneRepublic, The Black Crowes, Owl City, Guster, The Bravery, OK Go, Sara Bareilles, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jason Mraz, among others.

And So I Watch You From Afar
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Friends (208 E 6th St)

    From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:

    Music From Ireland is an arts collective set up to promote Irish talent at international conventions. Acts must first be invited to events like SXSW, then MFI steps in with support. Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands kick things off with a dance-synth sound that brings to mind the post-New Wave mod Eighties. Golden Syrup, released last year, added a goth edge to the quintet's disco. Lisa O'Neill, a new folk firebrand, was personally invited to open and perform with David Gray on his most recent tour. Currently one of Dublin's best live acts, Squarehead is threepiece garage band with Buzzcocks-like hooks and near-Beach Boys harmonies. Critically acclaimed throughout the UK, Belfast's Cashier No. 9 is an unclassifiable pop band that's drawn comparisons to such dissimilar acts as the Stone Roses, Byrds, and Flaming Lips. The Minutes play with a bare-bones urgency that's earned them a rep as "the greatest rock & roll band in Dublin." The trio's boozy debut took heavy inspiration from Thin Lizzy. Winners of the Northern Irish Music Awards Best Live Band, Belfast's And So I Watch You From Afar are an incredibly inventive post-punk instrumental band.

    "I guess releasing one outta-this-world album in 2010 wasn’t enough for these power pop superheroes because they’ve gone ahead and dropped yet another five-song masterpiece on us like a sack full o’ diamonds. Seriously, if they keep this up my heart’s gonna explode in a shower of cocktail napkin confetti. But really, can you think of a better way to go? Sure, you’re saying, when I’m balls deep in ...a teenage scream queen. Well, I got news for ya, friend. This is better than that. I’ll take your juicy thighs and smeared lipstick and raise you an orgy of rock n’ roll, cotton candy, jungle cats, wet tongues, and champagne bubbles. It’s just all sorts of crazy good stuff, ya know? When I had a go at their self-titled EP, I said that if the Biters weren’t the biggest band in the world real soon that we’d all be doomed, and I believe that now more than ever. So do the Biters apparently, who are doing their part by releasing the most amazing music at a roller-skate pace. It may be OK to like Biters, but it’s better to fucking love Biters. In fact, it’s pretty much mandatory." -Jeff/ BrokenBeard.com

Braid
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Dirty Dog Bar (505 E 6th St., Austin, TX 78701)
    Braid was an influential emo/post-hardcore band from Illinois that formed in 1993. After forming, the band went through several line-up changes but eventually settled on: Bob Nanna on guitar/vocals, Todd Bell on bass, Chris Broach on guitar/vocals and, Roy Ewing on drums. Roy was replaced in 1997 by Damon Atkinson. In 1999 Braid disbanded and went on to form Hey Mercedes with all band members minus Chris Broach (who went on to form The Firebird Band) and adding Mark Dawsurk. The band reformed for a comprehensive US/Canada tour from June-August 2004 & a brief Japanese tour in August 2004. In 2010 the band decided to get back into the studio with old friend & famous music producer J Robbins to record a new EP titled "Closer To Closed". In support of this release, the band played a memorable show at their old stomping grounds The Metro in Chicago followed by shows in Champaign, IL & Milwaukee, WI. More shows and talks of more music to come from Braid in 2012.

Canteca de Macao
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Copa (217 Congress Ave)

    Canteca de Macao arised almost a decade ago because a combination of coincidences in Madrid. The connection with the audience was almost immediate in a city that, by that time, was under an interesting cultural phenomenon. Immigration, certain permissiveness with live music on the street or the close relationship of the band with the university, were the key factors that caused the breeding ground for their scope.
    After the first small concerts and the recording of their first demo (more than 500.000 downloads), the members of Canteca de Macao started to take the project seriously. Several record labels started to get interested in the band who, without a record in the market, was demonstrating its capacity of concentrate big audiences and were starting to stand out in festivals like Viñarock , in Spain or Rumbo a Caracas, in Venezuela.
    Canteca de Macao tiptoed into the musical industry. In one hand they needed their support to turn professionals and work fulltime for the band and in the other hand, they wanted to maintain some of the principles that led them to that point. The first one was is the free download of their music through their website. Under this premise, they signed a contract with Warner for the recording of their second record “Camino de la vida entera” (2007) and the license of their first self-produced record “Cachai?” (2004). During this period they tour extensively performing over 100 gigs that led them all around the Iberian Peninsula and to many events and festivals in many countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Jordan, France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Morocco, New York, Costa Rica or Chicago.
    In 2007, the band had two nominations for the Music Awards: the first single of “Camino de la vida entera”, “Bellas”, was nominated in the best revelation author and Canteca de Macao received the nomination as best revelation artist.
    Three years later, in 2010, the second single of this record was chosen, “Contigo”, as one of the main tunes of the sound track of the film Habitación en Roma, directed by Julio Medem.
    In 2009 under the same record label they issued, “Agua pa´ la tierra”, a musically mature record that will experiment many important changes in the band. From one side, Danilo, the Chilean flute player who provided an unmistakable colour to the music of the band, decided to get back to Chile.
    One night they met Enriquito, a versatile trumpeter specialized in flamenco ‐jazz and they decided to bet for the change of the sound inviting him to be part of the band.
    So, 2011 has been a busy year full of expectations. In this context, the band has to face the recording of his fourth album and they decided to act according to their situation, betting for another change: they left Warner and they expose themselves to the support of their fans through a still unknown method in Spain: Crowdfunding.
    The record could only be released if the fans support the band through their economical contributions before recording it.
    After 40 days of efforts and media impact, Canteca de Macao were able to achieve their target some days before the predetermined period. Crowdfunding was successful and they start the recording of “Nunca es Tarde”, which includes a documentary that relates this adventure from the beginning.
    For many, “Nunca es tarde” is “the record”. A reflection of the maturity and the consolidation of their sound, hatched in such a special framework as themselves. 2012 will be the year in which they will see the return of a nonstop work that is still working with more energy than ever and which has already been supported by the fans and the media, in a tour that will lead them to play all over Spain and all over the world, having engaged gigs in places like Belgium, Holland, New York, Texas or Chicago.

    Get the head rockin’ with Shed Light, the best of this multi-instrumentalist’s 21st-century music. It’s sure to be in heavy rotation alongside his Deep Ellum-inspired and Austin-honed tapes and discs, the sounds of your 90’s misspent youth.

    Then let the eyes drink in his feverish paintings at The Continental Club Gallery. Or see if the mind can catch up with the ears when he unleashes his lyrical flow representing Texas at Montreal’s International Poetry Conference "Peace in the Borderlands" in June 2011.

    Next sit back and let a drama unfold thanks to his soundtrack, for the theatrical work “Fantasmaville,” for his scene-stealing performance in the independent feature, “Largo The Movie”, for the groundbreaking documentary "Wretches & Jabberers" (with Ben Harper, Scarlett Johansson & J.Ralph).

    Or maybe you want to get back to the “Dah-Veed” you thought you knew. Alright, then, dodge the plastic cups at your feet, and elbow your way to the stage, where Garza is raising the bar and the roof, making soul shaking music with Fiona Apple or Jeff Ament or Jon Brion or Sara Watkins … Soon your hips will know why Pearl Jam hand-picked David to perform two shows at their first ever music fest in September 2011 in Alpine Valley Wisconsin.

    Just don’t let the legend-status accolades fool you. Sure, in 1999, he was voted runner-up for Austin Chronicle Musician of the Decade—second only to Stevie Ray Vaughan. But be on the lookout now as David Garza brings you the sounds, songs & sights of tomorrow, and beyond.

    Starting out as a garage band in South Texas, Dignan was formed by friends Andy Pena, and Devin Garcia who loved to play music, and loved the music they played. Dignan's sound has evolved into a powerful, dreamy, washy indie pop sound, with the help of David Palomo, and Charlie Vela. Though South Texas has never been a playground for artist spotlight, Dignan has made a national name for themselves through relentless DIY touring. Since Dignan's formation in 2007 they have been invited to SXSW 3 times, CMJ '09, Pygmalion Music Festival, Next Big Nashville twice, and have earned their place as "road warriors" playing over 700 tour dates nationwide. The band was recently invited to perform for Daytrotter.com which showcased them as Artist of the Day. Dignan has also been featured in several music magazines such as Paste, Under The Radar, Relevant, and Spin. In Texas, Dignan has been approached by booking agencies such as Windish Agency, Agency Group, Paradigm, and High Road to lend support to their touring artists such as Cursive, Twin Sister, Colour Revolt, Miniature Tigers, Cloud Nothings, Baths, Gobble Gobble, Max Bemis (Say Anything), Twin Shadow, Anathallo, Facing New York, and many more. In an industry where artists and fads come and go, Dignan has stood the test of time, and stayed true to a sound all their own. Starting to write and record for a "TBA" full length record, Dignan is excited to see what these next years have in store for them.

East Cameron Folkcore
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ The White Horse (500 Comal St, Austin, TX 78702)

    From Chase Hoffberger, The Austin Chronicle:

    East Cameron Folkcore played the bulk of Sound & Fury: Songs in the Key of Love and Death only once, at the Hole in the Wall last spring on the night of the album's release.

    "We basically evolved past those songs as soon as we released them," says Jesse Moore, head wrangler for the 10-member ECF, composed of members of Bankrupt & the Borrowers, Bridge Farmers, the Van Buren Boys, Clyde & Clem's Whiskey Business, Hobomouth, and the Bread. "A lot of those songs weren't designed to be played live at all. We had to get them out of our system to quantify them in our own grieving."

    Written in memory of Jon Pettis, Moore's Bankrupt bandmate who died in an electrical fire at the band's house in October 2009, Sound & Fury is a defining work in Moore's compositional evolution, a seamlessly articulated tribute tied into an inspiring story about a neighborhood rallying to celebrate a life. Paradoxically, its elegiac message isn't indicative of typical Folkcore shows, which run loud, rowdy, and rooted in political undertones.

    "Some of the songs on Sound & Fury I recorded in my bedroom – alone," says Moore. "That was more of my own project, and I used the band to get the way it needed to sound. The songs we focused on came through as more of a collaborative effort, and a process of getting everyone's sound and all their influences into the music."

    In ECF's case, getting every member's sound into the music often requires fitting upward of 30 tracks into a single song's mix. Moore points to trombonist Blake Bernstein's "Charlene," one of the songs on the band's upcoming The Sun Also Rises EP, as having 32 individual tracks.

    "It's crazy," laughs Moore. "It took us two whole months to just mix this EP."

His first release in 2000, Intro, a collaboration with Alan Braxe, is a testament to a future career of success. Intro received mass acclaim in the French House scene. The pair's streak of producing hits continued with joint remixes for Goldfrapp, Royksopp, Kelis and Justice.

    Hans Chew delivers powerful medicine, a resurrection of rock & roll as unique as it is traditional. It's Jerry Lee Lewis on a Nick Cave trip, Floyd Cramer as the Night Tripper; it's Leon Russell tickling James Booker in the backseat of Little Richard's Cadillac. Chew probably says it best, “I'm a product of American culture circa 1975. The Grand Ole Opry was on TV, Ralph Emery was on the radio. My grandfather sang harmony in a gospel quartet and taught me "that high-lonesome sound". My mother turned me on to Hendrix and the Stones, but my father only listened to classical music: I knew Beethoven's Fifth before Led Zeppelin's fourth.”

    After both moving from Los Angeles to Austin in search of a greater music community, old friends Scott Graham and Todd Sapio, who literally bumped into each other in the middle of Sixth St. during South By Southwest, began hashing out song ideas in the spring of ‘07. After a few solid rehearsals, Scott suggested that his brother Matt, who had already been living in Austin, should sit in on bass. Matt, who was not normally a bass player, brought a different, more melodic approach on the bass that fit in perfectly. Their manager at the time, Dustin Laycock, brought in Coloradoan session player Caleb Kelly on drums after their current drummer literally vanished the day before an important gig. Behind his “Ringo kit,” Caleb conjured his signature thunderous groove for the three Houston-bred boys, and the band had found their sound.

    Twenty-four year-old Toronto singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Lights has been crafting her own unique synth-pop-rock since she was 14. On the strength of her 2008 self-titled EP, Lights won the 2009 Juno Award for New Artist of the Year. Her full-length debut, The Listening was released to critical acclaim in North America in 2009 and was certified gold in Canada in October 2010. Siberia, her sophomore effort, was released on October 4th, 2011 and showcases Lights' maturity and progression as a songwriter. Collaborations with Toronto electronica band Holy Fuck bring in a darker, dub-grit sound that creates an interesting landscape for Lights' distinct vocals. Juno Award-winning rap artist Shad also appears on two songs to add another notable element to this modern soundscape. 2012 will see Lights hitting the road again for North American and UK tours.

Protoje
    Sunday March 18, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ Flamingo Cantina (515 East 6th Street Austin, TX)

    It is said that society has lost its way. We have all but entirely lost hope in the possibility of revolutionary progress instigated by the young people of Jamaica. The pessimists have yet to consider the notorious innovation of Jamaicans, that therein lies a rich history of focusing and refocusing in perilous times, pinpointing the tiny loopholes and then widening them into gaping gaps for not only Jamaicans to see the truth, but the entire world. This is what a certain exciting breakthrough musician has committed himself to doing. His name… Protoje.
    Born in the 80’s but wishing he was birthed in the 60’s, Protoje (Oje Ollivierre) is the fresh face with the freshest lyrical delivery, still having a feel of vintage reggae music but being a suitable update for the present time.
    Indeed, Marley’s mantra was to “free the people with music.” Protoje’s mantra is to free the people with art. Music – his appointed contribution to the artistic revolution – is only one of the many distinct art forms. He takes up the mantle of spokesperson for the Movement and represents the evident unity among a large group of talented musical, literary and visual artists in Jamaica who have silently and patiently developed under the radar and are about to march together into a new era of prosperity for all.
    Despite being the cousin of regular chart-topping producer, Donovan ‘Don Corleon’ Bennett, Protoje continues to resist the urge to lay his vocals on every other riddim in the dancehall mainstream. Nevertheless, over the past three years his profile and popularity have grown significantly within the Jamaican market under the astute guidance of Don Corleon Records and HOUSE OF DIGGY the artist and events management company run by his mother and manager Lorna Bennett. To date he has recorded and released one full length CD/album “7 Year Itch”, a 23 track Mix CD “This is Protoje”, and six promotional music videos. He has performed on major local festivals such as Reggae Sumfest, and has also toured Europe twice in 2011. He is being hailed by many local and international music experts as one of the leading artists representing the future of Jamaican Reggae music on the international scene.
    Already, a pattern has been detected whereby Protoje invariably sees a significant hike in his fan base the day after his last performance. This invokes the truth in the saying, “you have to see to believe.” Rolling with Protoje is rolling with the Movement.

    Hailing from New Orleans, where Latin and Caribbean music have a long and glorious history of interaction with R&B, blues and jazz, the Iguanas was formed in 1989 by guitarist/accordionist Rod Hodges and Joe Cabral, who alternates between saxophone and bajo sexto. The two also share lead vocal duties. Within a few years, the current longtime lineup that includes bassist Rene Coman and drummer Doug Garrison was assembled. The Iguanas emerged as one of the most popular bands in one of the world’s most musical cities. Their sound has been described as combining Chicano rock, R&B, Conjunto and various Latin styles into a deep groove.

    Life could have been much different for these four childhood friends if they had followed the paths that were strictly enforced on them. David Dennis (singer) was the son of missionary parents that traveled the world, living in Russia, India, Singapore and Hong Kong. When his parents separated, David’s father would not allow him to play guitar. David secretly taught himself how to play at his mother’s on the weekends. As David was growing up around the world, Kurt Allen (drummer) and Anthony Aguiar (guitar/ keyboards) met at the age of four when Anthony’s family moved on the same street in Southern California. Kurt, the son of a Vietnam veteran, was raised in hopes he would one day join the Marines and Anthony grew up in a very strict Catholic upbringing. Neither family encouraged the boys to pick up any instruments and start a band, but these two fell in love with music when they first heard Nirvana. It was at that moment they knew what they wanted to do for the rest of their lives. The two boys learned how to play their instruments along side one another and together their passion for music grew. At the same time, Phil Munsey (bass), was raised a pastor’s son and was traveling in a van going across the country as his parents preached. David and Phil met when David’s parents started attending the Munsey’s church in the same town as Kurt and Anthony lived. The two became fast friends and Phil brought David to his first music concert. There David got on stage for the first time and screamed into a microphone singing. Phil was so impressed by David’s singing and attitude that he asked David to start a punk band with him and Phil’s little brother. Soon after, junior high started and David and Kurt met and their friendship and passion for playing music with one another began. From there all four kids became fast friends and musical partners. From junior high through high school, the boys in their separately formed bands would often play together at local shows. After high school Kurt moved to San Francisco and Anthony, Phil and David began playing together. Kurt, watching the three grow together musically and missing playing music with his friends, left San Francisco and joined the boys back in Southern California. Finally after many years many different bands, the four-childhood friends were playing together and Voxhaul Broadcast was formed. Short after Voxhaul formed, they moved to Los Angeles and became local favorites. They released their first EP “Rotten Apples” with Dwayne Larring and began making their first trips across the county playing such festivals as LA’s Sunset Junction, Summer Fest in Milwaukee and CMJ in New York. Their next EP “Fact Fiction And Turquoise” was recorded at Elliot Smith’s old recording studio New Monkey with Eli Thompson. This EP featured such songs like “Shoot The Breeze” and “Fact Or Fiction”, which made them regulars on KCRW and gave them their first airplay in the UK on NME. Later that year they had the privilege of playing on KCRW’s popular morning radio show “Mornings Become Eclectic”. After two EP’s, they recorded their first album “Timing Is Everything” at Fairfax Studios with Grammy-award winning producer Tom Biller. This album helped them grow from local favorites to a national touring band. Following the release, Voxhaul went to SXSW and played at great showcases like Filter’s Ceder Street Festival and The Pure Volume House. Following SXSW they toured extensively throughout the country and were asked to join national tours with acts like Rooney and The Airborne Toxic Event. Now the band is recording their next album at Village Studios and getting ready for some more national and international tours.

    Colours, the debut album from Britain’s Graffiti6, is as vividly vibrant as both the project’s moniker and its album title suggest: an uncategorizable mélange of pop, psychedelia, R&B, and British Northern Soul that fully capitalizes on the soaring uplift of Jamie Scott’s emotionally transparent voice and gift for melody and TommyD’s irresistible rhythms and inventive production. Songs like “Stone In My Heart,” “Stare Into The Sun,” “Annie You Save Me,” and “Free” are “latter-day psych-soul nuggets, all phased vocals and sunshine melodies given the warp factor,” as London’s Guardian newspaper put it, while the remainder of Colours zigzags all over the musical map from the folk-soul balladry of “Goodbye Geoffrey Drake,” to the spare, gospel-inflected feel of “Over You,” to the downtempo sultriness of “Calm The Storm,” to the jangly indie-rock vibe of “Lay Me Down.” “For me, the unexpectedness of the sound is the whole point,” Scott says. “It’s fun to mess with people’s heads.”

    There was a time when hip hop was needed, was necessary, when it was utilized as the only form of expression, the only voice, for an all too under appreciated and almost unknown culture. As the strength of its voice grew so did its impact on the rest of the world. A rise in popularity led to a rise in marketability, and once the rise in marketability positively affected the rise in profitability, mainstream Corporate America capitalized on the movement, and in turn the music, the core, the essence of the genre, declined.

    From Kate X Messer, The Austin Chronicle:

    Austin loves to bounce, so it's tough to imagine the phenom hitting Central Texas as firm and round as it has without the mad work of Austin ex-pat DJ Rusty Lazer – mish-masher of traditional NOLA sounds into bounce's hip-hop base and one of the fiercest ambassadors of New Orleans' original booty style – hitting the tables along with (Nola Fam's) DJ Q. Named for what it makes asses do, bounce has gained devotees through the aggressive touring of its gender-bent subgenre sissy bounce, typified by the lady notorious for shifting bounce's focus up front on her paean "Tiddy Bop," Katey Red (as well as fellow purveyors Big Freedia and the late, great Magnolia Shorty). Shorty, the bounce rapper whose life was tragically cut short in late 2010, lives on in beloved protégée Magnolia Rhome. And you know when Diplo said "Express Yourself"? Well, that expression would not be as unique without the urging of Big Freedia/Katey Red star pupil Nicky da B, also heading up this bill. The night will be firmed up with a generous taste of hot, fresh bounce, hip-hop, and dance crew up-and-comers right out of the oven, Nola Fam, Jean Eric, Rhodes!!, Nesby Phips, and LuckyLou.

    Black Pistol Fire is a Canadian Rock and Roll duo that split’s time between Toronto, Ontario and Austin, Texas. Their wild and energetic rock-and-roll sound has been described as a mix of classic southern rock and garage punk, garnering comparisons to early Kings of Leon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Black Keys, and Clutch. It's clear that the band's sound spans many different eras and subgenres, relying on a classic rock and roll sound that has been updated for our modern times.ern rock and gara

    Black Pistol Fire features Kevin McKeown on Guitar/Lead Vocals and Eric Owen on Drums. The two have been friends since kindergarten and began playing music together when they discovered a shared passion for rock and roll music in high school. The two became founding members of rock and roll trio The Shenanigans. With The Shenanigans, they recorded an LP titled Bombshell Baby. After things with The Shenanigans and Toronto got stale, the two wanted a change of scenery and to try out something new. They then packed up their instruments and a bag of clothes and headed south. The band finally settled down in Austin, Texas in 2009 and Black Pistol Fire was born. The two have been playing together for 11 years, the last 3 of those in Black Pistol Fire.
