Last September, five Austin bands and more than a thousand friends and fans gathered at the Moody Theatre, home of the Austin City Limits television series, to pay tribute to Brent Grulke, the music director of South By Southwest, who unexpectedly passed away at the age of 52.
Singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl has been immersed in the world of music for the past ten years. Now based in Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR, Colyn was originally born and raised in southern California. “In the beginning I was mostly into rhyme stuff/hip hop,” Colyn notes, “I wrote rap basically. I used to go around the school ground rapping my verses to whoever would listen. Then about seven years ago I picked up a guitar and taught myself basic stuff and immediately began writing songs.”
Born Adrian Michna, DJ/producer Michna combines instrumental hip-hop, electro, and IDM. Starting out his musical career as a trombonist on the N.Y.C. circuit, playing ska music in the Lion\'s Den and CBGB before he was old enough to get served at the bar, in the mid-\'90s he moved to Miami and founded the enigmatic DJ collective Secret Frequency Crew along with Matthew Brown and Matt Friedman. Their song \"Miami Eyes\" became a favorite among the underground DJ community and caught the attention of Diplo.
Triana Park is one of the most interesting musical phenomenon from The Baltic States, that has done a lot of unusual shows in television, different types of live concerts and open-air festivals. Music reviewers have described Triana Park as a mixture of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bjork and even Led Zeppelin concluding that it is definitely on of the most original acts from Europe!
You should never take it too easy with this band. You should not fall for the temptation of lending more attention to Sizarr’s biographical buzz than to their now finished, phenomenal debut. Sure, when it all started with Sizarr in 2009, Fabian (voc), Philipp (synths, voc) and Marc (drums, percussion) were strikingly young for the maturity of the music that would soon be expected from them. And, of course, if you come up with this music in a small town on the countryside, it happens to be an unmistakable sideshow to local pop culture at the French-German border.
I started rapping “professionally” about 7 years ago, that included booking my own tours, sleeping on the floors of people I didn’t know, bathing in public restrooms, and accidentally kicking off a feminist revolution in Romania. I was taught how to rap by way of Project Blowed in South Central Los Angeles, it had a very “8 mile” vibe and when I got booed off stage I would come back next week a better rapper. They taught me how to paint my nails, rap with stage presence, and fight for the right to party.
Familiarizing oneself to The Kickback may seem like an exercise in confronting consistent sets of seemingly opposing ideas: A band that prides itself on its love of Muppet Christmas specials and youthful naiveté but has no problem admitting to a paralyzing fear of death and decline. The group seems to strive for brutal honesty, all-the-while realizing they’re a pop band playing pop music. Even the membership of the group itself may seem odd: one-half brothers from South Dakota, one-half Chicago transplants from Washington D.C. and Mexico.
