The exterior of Emos in Austin after The Garden Concert on 11/11 as the crowd exited out


My Thoughts on the 11/11 The Garden Concert

By Andrea Moor Music Journalist Anyone who knows me knows my fondness for the twin-composed band based in Orange County, California, known as The Garden. With several side projects under their belt, Wyatt and Fletcher Shears are most notably known for their collaboration on this band. When the musical duo set out to tour again this year for their latest release, Horseshit on Route 66, I knew I had to […]

lier Promo for the film “Amélie”


Amélie: Soundtrack Review

By Andrea Moor Music Journalist The 2001 acclaimed French film, “Amélie,” portrays the story of a lonesome young woman who searches for comfort and happiness in life. Despite the film’s instances of nearly sadistic realism, the story is depicted in a youthful manner due to Yann Tiersen’s playful soundtrack, the film’s vibrant oversaturation, and the recurring symbolism. The plot develops as Amélie, the heroine of the tale, finds a buried […]

Levitation: Interview with Tropical F**k Storm

 Maddy Lehr (KTSW) and Keller Welton (KJHK) Music Journalist and Programming Director (KJHK) Going into our third day at Levitation, we were a bit disappointed about not scoring tickets to night two of King Gizzard at Stubb’s. Usually with interviews, it’s in and out, in hopes of not taking too much of the band’s time. After getting in contact with Gareth “Gaz” Liddiard, we were suddenly in the green room […]

Alex G and the Femme Fatale

Gilian Prado Music Journalist A good friend of mine (Saidif) had recommended the artist Alex G to me and showed me some songs, deep cuts and the artist stayed on my radar. Later I stumbled across their song entitled Mary. As someone who is into post punk fast paced, garage rock, angsty and full of vigor music, this track was not something that would normally become a song id listen […]

Wet Leg: Self Titled Album Review 

Sophia Gualy Music Journalist Up and coming British indie band, Wet Leg leaves their listeners eager for more with their 2022 self-titled album. The band, consisting of members Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, is your ultimate indie girl group that you have been searching for. Their self-titled album is angsty and glamorous whilst perfectly ironic at the same time, the perfect mixture to an ideal album. They sing of being […]

Fall Alternative Records

Joel Milton Music Journalist As the days keep passing us by, the fall is quickly creeping up. Shorter, crisper days with leaves turning from a healthy, hearty green to a crumbly, lifeless brown call for some appropriately somber albums to listen to as the days get darker and the skies get cloudier.
