SXSW Picks: Thursday March 16

By: Laurie Gallardo


All right, little trooper. Little camper. Little buckeroo. These are your AMM SXSW picks for Thursday. And if you can sneak a nap in between shows, you are one lucky bastard:


June 7, 2023


The title of Abraham Alexander’s debut release SEA/SONS suggests a couple of things. There’s definitely a reflection of the time he spent growing up in Greece by the seaside with his brothers, before relocating to Texas. And then, the idea of seasons – not so much about the weather, but the changes in our lives. […]

I Don’t Know My Words

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anand Wilder (Yeasayer) released his debut solo LP I Don’t Know My Words last year, a revelatory glimpse into his existence during the pandemic.
