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 […]

ACL: The Best of Weekend Two

 Maddy Lehr Music Journalist After being given the opportunity to apply for credentials for Austin City Limits 2022, I excitedly prepared for the weekend to come.

Post Animal: When I Think Of You In A Castle Album Review

By Maddy LehrMusic Journalist Psychedelic rock comes in so many different forms, and that is something I really love about the genre. The six-piece Chicago-based band, Post Animal, is a perfect representation of this. They have released quite a bit of heavy psychedelic rock tunes, but expect some prog rock and even power pop as well.  Post Animal’s debut album, When I Think Of You In A Castle, shows off their […]
