We just arrived here in Austin for South by Southwest 2016! It is crazy warm and crazy beautiful. We are so excited for the next 5 days and can't wait for tomorrow to begin so we can jump right into everything the festival has to offer.As a little intro, here are the artists we're most excited to see this week:


  • Hinds – This Spanish group of girls seriously kills it. Their music is SO WONDERFUL – bad ass, but sweet.
  • Big Ups – Punk rock and kick ass. I am going to rock out at this show.
  • Car Seat Headrest – The most beautiful music, I swear. I can't wait to feel that etherial, “WOW, this is awe-inspiring” feeling during this set.
  • The Octopus Project – This group goes from adorable indie rock to some strange, synthesized experimentalism. I'm interested to see what kind of show they'll put on for their showcase.
  • Eleanor Friedberger – I've been really into this girl recently. Her music has this low-fi, 70's feeling that's awesome.


  • Jamie XX- Producer/DJ, part of the XX, electronica from London,  sonically capturing and beautiful, just put out his first solo album In Colour this past summer
  • Anderson Paak- rapper just came out with Malibu- a great album very personal, music is soulful and rich
  • Kacy Hill- signed to kanye's GOOD, electronica, synth-y and delicate, came out with an EP in October
