Parker Millsap
Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Parker Millsap's sophomore LP kicks off raw and raucous, "Hades Pleads" chugging a howling blues that immediately showcases the 23-year-old's growth from his eponymous 2014 debut. The Oklahoma songwriter's eclectic roots reach likewise stretches impressively, from the soul-tinged "Pining" and trembled touch of "Morning Blues" to the cathartic apocalypse of "The Very Last Day." Centerpiece "Heaven Sent" draws poignant tension as a young gay man searches for reconciliation with his religious father, and while the gentle "Jealous Sun" and "A Little Fire" find Millsap still trying to tackle his higher trill effectively, "Tribulation Hymn" closes in fervent throwback gospel fashion..."

Tuesday SXSW Showcases
First night hangs – showcases!
Music Story  March 10, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Smooth and smart, they rip through keys and steel-backed roots stomps inflected with touches of Muscle Shoals. Two of Austin's top young songwriters cement the bill, with Ben Ballinger's dusky, weathered vocals matching his emotionally worn ballads in preparation for this year's follow-up to 2014 sophomore outing The State I'm In..."

Music Story  March 8, 2018, by Dan Gentile
"...Residing in outer space with a green card for Amsterdam, Olf van Elden produces a clean galactic sound, echewing cosmic noodling in favor of the crisp gunmetal of a house music starship. Disco reigned on his memorable play of 1985 Italo classic "Baja Imperial" during a 2014 Dekmantel appearance. Catz N Dogz..."

SXSW Film Review: Walk With Me
Mindfulness guru takes center stage in profound nonfiction weeper
DAILY SXSW  March 13, 2017, by Sean L. Malin
"...As a love letter to Hanh himself, no film that I know – including 2014’s One Week in Plum Village or Meditation in Action: The Life and Work of Thich Nhat Hanh – has matched the cinematic grandeur of Walk With Me. Ultimately, this lovely movie falls somewhere between unintentional mindfulness propaganda and brief (truly brief) historical consideration of Hanh’s impact on international spiritual health..."

SXSW Day Fest: Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion
Shelter from the storm in Luck, Texas
DAILY SXSW  March 19, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Located 30 miles outside of Austin on Nelson’s Spicewood ranch, the makeshift Western town had provided an idyllic and surreal setting for what has become one of the best nonaffiliated events during SXSW. Nonetheless, the charm of the old storefronts and barns offered little in the way of security from a major storm, and as the skies darkened, thoughts turned to the town’s 2014 destruction by tornado-force winds...."

SXSW Music: Frankie Cosmos/Porches
Back-to-back paramour indie
DAILY SXSW  March 17, 2016, by Libby Webster
"...That lack of fullness, of variety of sound, caused a lot of the material to blend together, despite the set being made up of forthcoming material, picks from recent EPs, 2014’s LP Zentropy, and more. Recordings of “Young” and “O Contest Winner,” two new tracks relying heavily on synths, sound like a dramatic departure from Zentropy, but came out indistinguishable live..."

Golden Dawn Arkestra
Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Billowing smoke, glowing rings, dashikis, masks, mystery, mayhem – dancing: Golden Dawn Arkestra amounts to visual LSD onstage. Austin's Afrobeat aliens successfully etched a psychedelic jazz-funk party onto their 2014 debut EP, and now repeat the trick with sophomore vinyl that deepens the grooves into electro-funk..."

Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals / Milo
Malibu (Steel Wool/OBE) / So the Flies Don't Come (Ruby Yacht/The Order Label)
Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...There's effortless, unhurried groove as he slides from the disarming grit of Nineties hip-hop in "Without You" to Sixties soul on "The Bird" and honey-dripped R&B with "Am I Wrong," all following like Kendrick Lamar opus To Pimp a Butterfly. And at 30, .Paak's still like you and me: "A product of the tube, living room watching old reruns." The less conventional of the two, Milo, 24-year-old Wisconsin rapper Rory Ferreira, rearranges words with a childlike curiosity heard on his 2014 Hellfyre Club-helmed debut, A Toothpaste Suburb..."

Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...Then make way for K-Pop juggernaut Mamamoo. A Korean chart fixture since 2014 debut, their back-to-back 2016 singles "I Miss You" and "Taller Than You (1cm)" add slow-jam R&B and sly hip-hop to the quartet's TLC-style arsenal..."

Saturday SXSW Interview: Parker Millsap
Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Millsap continues the thread of 2014's self-titled debut with songs about being spiritual, but not necessarily religious. He walks a fine line sometimes, invoking fire and brimstone in folk and blues settings augmented by the occasional scary screech from fiddler Daniel Foulks...."

Music Story  March 17, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Nashville songwriter Bryan Simpson opens with eclectically cacophonic eponymous debut as the Whistles & the Bells, his creaking vox howling over strings and aggressive percussion.

SXSW Music: Ben Ballinger
Disheveled local proves in-control lyrically
DAILY SXSW  March 16, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Opening Austin imprint Nile Mile Records’ showcase on Tuesday at Maggie Mae’s Gibson Room, the local songwriter looked like an appropriately disheveled blur of bad decisions himself, more like standing at the close of SXSW than its beginning. Yet the moment he struck the first chords of “Natatorium” from 2014 LP The State I’m In, Ballinger fell into place onstage, uncompromised and focused...."

Doc examines notorious teen stabbing
DAILY Screens  March 12, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...Brodsky and, let’s face it, pretty much everyone wants a sane explanation as to why, on Saturday, May 31, 2014, two seemingly ordinary 12-year-old girls led another girl, a close friend, into the woods outside their home in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and attempted to kill her her, stabbing her 19 times and then leaving her for dead, a ritual sacrifice to the fictional internet meme dubbed "the Slenderman.”..."
