March music is choked out by the spidery tendrils of SXSW, and the Owl and Bear podcast is not immune. This month’s mix features lots of bands you’ll find wandering Austin somewhere between 6th street and Cesar Chavez, including Sunflower Bean, Yuck, and Night Beats.
Over all the SXSW hype? We’ve got you covered. The podcasts includes a groovy cut from Houston, TX soul band The Suffers and a newly released, unmastered track from Kendrick Lamar. There’s also songs from New Zealand folk artists Marlon Williams and Nadia Reid, plus an unexpected single from Midwest punk legends Violent Femmes.
Finally, be sure to check out The Castillians, a lo-fi UK outfit who describe themselves as “the sound of pop losing its virginity all over again.”
