Mixtape Monday: SXSW SPIRIT

Mixtape Monday: SXSW SPIRIT

"Don't ask me why I obsessively look to rock 'n' roll bands for some kind of model for a better society... I guess I glimpsed something beautiful in a flashbulb moment once, and perhaps mistaking it for a prophecy have been seeking its fulfillment ever since. And perhaps that nothing else in the world ever...

Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina

Missing Pages: Long Way Down and a Love Letter To Stephen Svacina

There was though a spirit crying out to us from the wilderness of our small nowhere nothing nobody towns which tempted us to risk the comfort of the familiar to land in a foreign place of culture shock and suffocating all alone and to know even on the darkest defeated nights that if we kept...
La Luz's SXSW Instagram Takeover

La Luz’s SXSW Instagram Takeover

Photo Credit: Vikesh Kapoor   Currently based in Los Angeles’ duality of sunny dispositions and dark illusions, La Luz has crafted something special since their inception in 2012. Comprised of singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland, drummer Marian Li Pino, keyboardist Alice Sandahl, and bassist Lena Simon, the band’s surf-rock infested and reverb-drenched melodies maintain a haunting infectiousness...
SXSW Film Review: The Strange Ones

SXSW Film Review: The Strange Ones

  A thought provoking piece of cinema by co-directors Lauren Wolkstein and Christopher Radcliff, The Strange Ones sheds a veil over matters of truth and trauma, presenting a subjective reality that keeps you guessing throughout the film’s 80 minute run. Initiated as a short and years later coming together as a full length feature, we...
SXSW Film Review: Hounds of Love

SXSW Film Review: Hounds of Love

  Ben Young’s Hounds of Love renders as an emotionally staggering directorial debut, illustrating the vicious and cyclical nature of relationship abuse between both lovers and serial killers. Based loosely on true events, the film takes place in December, 1987 in the suburbs of Perth, Australia. Cruising down neighborhood streets, serial killers John (Stephen Curry)...
SXSW Film Review: Us and Them

SXSW Film Review: Us and Them

  A timely film in our current political wake, Us and Them serves as a cathartic viewing between the marginalized working class and the wealthy elite. With the use of flashbacks and screen title cards, Us and Them plays out in a stream-of-consciousness storyline with Danny (Jack Roth) playing leader alongside his blue-collared friends Tommy...
SXSW Film Review: Game of Death

SXSW Film Review: Game of Death

  Vacationing for a weekend getaway, seven teenagers settle at a summer home to partake in drunken shenanigans.

Dead Meadow Takeover!

Dead Meadow Takeover!

Drawing influences from classic acts like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, the three piece take things a step further...
SXSW Film Review: The Light of the Moon

SXSW Film Review: The Light of the Moon

  All too often films involving sexual assault/rape scenes seem like a convenient plot point to make a female character complex without ever actually exploring its complexities. Jessica M. Thompson’s film, The Light of the Moon, carefully considers the nuances of one individual’s experience without ever asserting that there is one authentic or correct way...
SXSW Film Review: Flesh and Blood

SXSW Film Review: Flesh and Blood

  Mark Webber’s Flesh and Blood interweaves both fictional and documentary-style elements throughout the course of his film, succeeding in both an incredibly personal and incredibly political story. Casting his own mother, Cheri Honkala, and his younger step-brother, Guillero Santos, Mark returns home to his family from years in prison only to find Pittsburgh has...
SXSW Film Review: Infinity Baby

SXSW Film Review: Infinity Baby

  Set in the not so distant future comes Infinity Baby, a company initiated by Neo (Nick Offerman) where infants perpetually stay infants due to a genetic modification in their DNA.

SXSW Film Review: Signature Move

SXSW Film Review: Signature Move

  Jennifer Reeder’s Signature Move is a refreshing and eye-opening romantic comedy on the interpersonal relationships between women, family, and diverse cultural backgrounds.

Burger Records SXSW Hangover Fest V

Burger Records SXSW Hangover Fest V

    We’re all aware how chaotic SXSW can be; with all the day and night parties, free tacos and beer, never enough coffee, and an endless amount of bands to revel in, the idea of a hangover party sounds mighty appealing. Come Sunday, March 19th, Burger Records is celebrating their fifth Hangover Fest at...
Bands On Our Radar: The Two Lips

Bands On Our Radar: The Two Lips

There’s been an influx of some extremely talented, up and coming bands pouring in from San Marcos, Texas. Fuzz garage-rock trio The Two Lips caught our eyes (and ears) after witnessing their work with Spoon’s very own Britt Daniels for their new single, “Repeat”. The opportunity arose during this year’s SXSW Festival where they had...

SXSW Music: An Interview with Emily Nokes of Tacocat

SXSW Music: An Interview with Emily Nokes of Tacocat

  Upon listening to Tacocat, you can’t help but dance and groove along to their energetic power pop-punk tunes. Self described as “feminist sci-fi”, Tacocat’s quirky melodies and tongue in cheek feminist lyrics were a breath of fresh air last week at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Vocalist Emily Nokes took a moment to answer some...

SXSW Film Reviews: The Master Cleanse and Chevalier

The Master Cleanse   Meaninglessly drifting through life, Paul Berger (Johnny Galecki) stumbles across a TV commercial advertising a quiet retreat and the promise of coming out renewed.

Trevor Sensor Website Takeover!

Trevor Sensor Website Takeover!

  At the very bottom of it, the point of art is to help people feel less alone. In my short time as a performer and songwriter, this is something I’ve constantly attempted to do–but, unfortunately, I can’t truly tell you whether or not I’ve actually succeeded at it. I can only go off of...
Keeping It (Real) Local: A Guide to SXSW 2016

Keeping It (Real) Local: A Guide to SXSW 2016

Despite the ever looming cloud of basic-bro culture and the evil Doritos mass-media corporatizaton strangling out the last death-rattle of all which was once pure and true in the world, SXSW remains greater than every Coachella, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Bonnaroo ever put together combined. Each year I watch someone’s younger sister and their...
An Interview with Sanae of Moon Duo

An Interview with Sanae of Moon Duo

    First thingʼs first, have you had a chance to check out the McDonaldʼs food truck? I heard something about how they were trying to get people to play for free and that they didnʼt have a budget to pay anyone. Thatʼs insane.   Like the Taco Bell food truck wasnʼt insulting enough. Right....

JUAN WAUTERS talks SXSW, The Beatles, Selfies, and More

Going into this interview, I knew nothing about Juan Wauters.  When I asked my brothers about him, they told me about The Beets and played some of his music, and it was great.  When I walked into Red 7 for his show, he had an American flag, a banner, and a luchador behind him.  I...

One For The Locals: Ishi

One For The Locals: Ishi

When JT Mudd and Brad Dale began their musical experiment in 2006, they probably didn’t consider that they would one day be sharing stages with acts like New Order, SBTRKT, Phoenix, Passion Pit, Pretty Lights, Big Boi, Neon Indian, Toro y Moi, and Marina & the Diamonds. Lo and behold, they have. Ishi has long...

The Terror: A New Chapter For The Flaming Lips

The Terror: A New Chapter For The Flaming Lips

Last month I got to see The Flaming Lips during SXSW in Austin. Being a Lips live show veteran, I ventured to Auditorium Shores expecting balloons, confetti, big-ass hands, lasers, or maybe Wayne riding the big hamster ball on top of the crowd, but instead I received “The Terror”. After being told that we were...

Mixtape Monday: Chill Out

Enjoy!   [8tracks url= “http://8tracks.com/anonmagazine/mixtape-monday-v” height=”500″ width=”500″ playops=”shuffle”]    ...
Tame Impala - Lonerism

Tame Impala – Lonerism

The first time I heard Tame Impala’s debut album, Innerspeaker, I couldn’t believe that they were from this decade. The Australian outfit has managed to resurrect the psychedelic rock of the 60s and 70s, and forge it with the emerging indie-rock genre of our time. Along with this, they have created something truly magical. The...

SXSW 2013: A Place To Start

It’s that time of the year again.   While some venture to the Gulf to frolic half-naked in front of thousands of people in search of that week long buzz, looking to make a couple of bad decisions that might put you in a Girls Gone Wild video, I will be at SXSW Music Festival...
