Abhi The Nomad Gets Down To Business In Austin

Abhi The Nomad doesn't have time to lounge at Barton Springs or get lost in the Greenbelt, because his student visa has his time here limited like a shot clock. Having moved 8 times by the time he was 18, it is no mystery where his name comes from, but his lax indie hip-hop has people guessing where his influences originated. Here on a grad school visa - Abhi is making his rhymes count, and his newly released debut album, Marbled, has the hype building around him for the upcoming SXSW festival. Already signed to Tommy Boy records, Abhi's recognition and appreciation looks only to pick up momentum.

New Track: "Gone" (Feat. Open Mike Eagle) - The Skull Eclipses

Philly's own Lushlife (a.k.a. Raj Haldar) and Austin's Botany (a.k.a. Spencer Stephenson) are releasing a joint venture as The Skull Eclipses. The dynamic duo's self-titled LP is due out on March 9 via Western Vinyl, and you can now check out the album's second offering, "Gone". The single gradually intensifies with effortless bars laid down by Haldar, before Open Mike Eagle tags in with his casual deliver that still manages to tackle some seriously heavy social topics. You can catch The Skull Eclipses at Johnny Brenda's this week on the night of their release, where they'll be joined by Dälek and Hprizm (High Priest of Antipop Consortium).

Molly Burch Charms Audiences As Her Career Takes Off

“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could.”. Raised in Los Angeles - a jazz vocal student at UNC – it wasn’t until moving to Austin that Molly Burch found her audience. Having released her debut album, Please Be Mine, nearly a year ago - Burch already has a record deal, a national audience, and garnered gravitating comparisons to Patsy Cline, Nina Simone, and Billie Holiday. While nostalgia permeates Burch’s romantic melodies, her subtle experimentation on tracks like “Fool” and “Please Be Mine” proves that Burch’s music is contemporary and unique. Keep an eye on Molly as she seduces SXSW crowds this March in Austin.
