New Artists Radar: The Dare

By Erin Patterson Music Journalist   A new indie-rock artist has entered the game. Harrison Patrick Smith, who goes by the alias, The Dare, has already made waves with only two songs in his repertoire.

Absolutely, Dijon.

By Aaliyah Hamilton Music Journalist   First blessing my eardrums in 2019, Dijon was unlike any artist I’ve heard. He was so addicting by the first listen that I’m still just as hooked four years later. Staying clear of any trends in his way, Dijon creates a path for his own original take in the world of R&B, which is far better than any mustard. Starting out within the duo […]

By Jared Dudley Music Journalist As KTSW airs its day-long Brocast in celebration of International Men’s Day, and with British rock band IDLES hot off the heels of their fourth record Crawler, now is a great time to look back at their song “Samaritans,” a track that dives into society’s interpretation of masculinity and the harm it can cause to people of all genders. IDLES lead singer Joe Talbot has […]

Artist on the Rise: Diamond Cafe

By Cassidy Segovia Music Journalist As a huge fan of R&B, soul and funk music, I have always been on the lookout for new artists and songs to listen to. A few years ago while I was scrolling through YouTube’s underground music selection, my attention was caught by the solo project of Diamond Cafe. As I listened to the nostalgia-filled sounds of his 2018 single, “The Way You Used To […]

Large Brush Collection Conquers the Midwest in a Subaru Forester

By Samantha Oesch Music Journalist Austin indie-folk band Large Brush Collection has recently returned to the Lone-Star State from a successful Midwest run. Fronted by bassist Nora Predey, Predey plays bass in an unorthodox way that almost resembles a traditional guitar. Guitarist Dan Magorrian accompanies Predey with his guitar, while Gabriela Torres serenades simultaneously to Predey with her flute. The band played an intimate tour send-off show in Predey’s backyard before […]

The Aoki Effect

By Michael KaiserMusic Journalist The name Aoki is probably one you’ve heard before. From Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki, the Japanese Olympic wrestler and founder of Benihana, to Devon Aoki, the famous actress, and fashion model, the Aoki family has stretched its influence across the world. The most prominent member of the family is, in my opinion, is Steve Aoki who has had an outstanding effect on the music and fashion industries. […]

Local Music Streams To Watch While Social-Distancing

By Bradley BarnesMusic Journalist Plato once said, “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” When a problem arises, it takes creative thinking to solve it, and some of the greatest innovations have come during some of the direst of situations. With the COVID-19 pandemic still in full-swing, I would say we’re certainly living in some dire times. South By Southwest, Levitation Fest, and Austin City Limits Festival all had to cancel […]

Shiloh Dynasty: The Vibe that has defined my college learning “I’m not a look, I’m a feeling”


Shiloh Dynasty: The Vibe that has Defined My College Learning

By Jason ArlineMusic Journalist Whenever there has been a time when I needed to study I often play music softly in the background to help calm my mood and prepare my mind for learning. I find that both jazz and lo-fi music allow room for thought since they usually don’t have lyrics in their songs. However, since studying usually takes hours of my time, most music playlists don’t last the […]
