Donna Missal Donna’s voice is full of contradictions, the song that first had me hooked was “Jupiter” a spacey dream. At around 3:02 she sings “Baby, baby, baby” in the most delicate and heartbreaking whisper that I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

Leyya, an Austrian band you need to know, released their second album Sauna only a few months ago. Though their second addition, they’ve really found and defined their sound yet keep it playful enough to remain lighthearted. The New Nine was lucky enough to get an interview about their process, their music videos, and tour.
FOXTRAX delivered during the last day of SXSW. It was the Whole Foods show which is one of the best events because there’s food, and it’s all ages so you get a whole different crowd.
I didn’t really know what to expect when I arrived at Flint Eastwood’s set during SXSW. It was the hottest day of the week and she appeared in long braids and overalls.

She has this insane energy and the way she sings and moves on stage it’s like the music is just flowing through her and it washes over the audience captivating them.

Gothic Tropic is the creation of Cecilia Della Peruti. The multi-instrumentalist that has created a lush 70’s inspired soundscapes that focus on her effortless guitar skills and dreamy voice. Her debut album Fast of Feast is the perfect example of how she blends pop and psychedelic. We caught up with her right after an electrifying set during SXSW.
Yoke Lore is the brainchild of Adrian Galvin. The vibe is dreamy soundscapes, with driving drums and a touch of a banjo. We caught up with Adrian after a slew of shows during SXSW.
SUR, the brainchild of Zack Arnett, has been taking over the music scene, we talked to him last year but the turnout for his SXSW shows was incredible. We caught up with him at the Whole Foods SXSW invasion.
