SXSW Film Review: Best of Enemies
Hard to imagine that time, pre-Fox News and Bill O’Reilly, when facts mattered, on-camera civility reigned, and Dan Ackroyd’s Jane-you-miserable-slut comment was so funny just because it was so unimaginably outré.

SXSW Profile: Leon Bridges
The Internet age moves fast, but the rise of Fort Worth’s Leon Bridges can only be described as meteoric. The young soul singer with impeccable style has released just two songs from an album with a possible June release date, but they garnered more than a million plays on Soundcloud within a week of release.

SXSW Film Review: Danny Says
There’s no precise word in the music biz for what Danny Fields does – or did (as the film concludes its look at his amazing career in 1978). Having great taste is a huge part of what made Fields so successful, but pinpointing his activities with a simple job description is no easy task.

SXSW Film Review: We Like It Like That
How to start a musical movement: Take the music your parents like, combine it with the music they don't, add a healthy dose of counter culture, and play it to a dance floor. It helps to choose a catchy name, like, say, the boogaloo.

SXSW Film Review: Monte Adentro
Two brothers – city mouse, country mouse – work long hours with low pay and even less complaint. Their mother, the matriarch of a muleteer family, narrates this family portrait turned observation on hard work and changing times.

SXSW Film Review: Bounce: How the Ball Taught the World to Play
What is it about those ubiquitous spheres that have captivated members of the animal kingdom since time immemorial? Everywhere on the big blue marble we call Earth, balls seem to make the world go ’round.

SXSW Film Review: Sneakerheadz
When you see kids and adults camped out in a line for two days, they’re probably not in front of a record store these days. It’s more likely a footwear purveyor where Nike or Adidas or Puma is holding a LR collab release at 8am, unleashing something like Del Toro x Snarkitecture LE collab Alto Chukka, or maybe Nike LeBron Fruity Pebbles.

SXSW Film Review: Landfill Harmonic
Like recycled garbage used to create symphonic-quality musical instruments, Brad Allgood and Graham Townsley Landfill Harmonic is a secret treasure. What seems a competent document about survival amidst environmental devastation is actually a story of the dull throb of existence gleefully recalibrated by the thundering heartbeat of music.
