Austin in your Ears, Micachu
Even I, who presented the show, was knackered listening back to my South by South West special on Radio 1 last night. It was the 'Great Band Tag', and a brilliant way of seeing and hearing some of the amazing bands and artists playing at the festival in America, all crammed in an hour. There's everything from Palestinian Hip Hop to my favourite new find The Local Natives, The Proclaimers to Danananaykroyd, LA and Japanese dance music, The Low Anthem and loads more! Listen to it HERE !
I'm off to Sheffield tonight to dj at the Fuzz Club in the University, where the brilliant Micachu are playing too. Micachu's album Jewellery will get nominated for a Mercury Music Award this year. That's my guess. And quite right too if it does, 'cos it's a beaut; no one makes music quite like Micachu.
