Jake Lloyd: “Sweat”

By: Jack Anderson

Weekend Two of ACL, baby! Those gates are wide open and ready to receive fest-goers of all kinds. For those who’ll be out at Zilker early tomorrow, you shouldn’t have a lot of trouble getting close up to the T-Mobile stage for a favorite of The Breaks and beyond, R&B vocalist-songwriter-producer Jake Lloyd. Along with our August 2022 Artist of the Month Deezie Brown Jake Lloyd makes up one half of Geto Gala, and be he paired up or strictly solo, you can always tell how much pure passion is stored in his pores.

The temps don’t look terrible for this weekend, but knowing Jake’s work and performance ethic, he’s sure to work up something 12:45PM this Saturday, whatever the weather.

Simply press start on “Sweat”, another outstanding entry into Jake Lloyd’s already-resplendent discography.

But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]

Nihiloxica: “Asidi”

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
