Locals Only

The Gents & The Dead Space | SXSW

Nothing is sexier than talking and chili. Actually there is. We could come up with a lot of things. UphoricTV sat down with The Gents and The Dead Space to talk about the local music scene in Austin, Texas. For The Gents, it was fate that they got together and formed a band. After six years of not seeing one another since high school, two of the bandmates bump into one another in Austin. This conversation was followed by singer and guitarist, Matthew Blissard, fan-girling about The Strokes. With “two-thirds” of The Dead Space from Austin, Texas, Quin Galavis tells us about the changes Austin has made over the past ten years. Austin went from embracing the slacker-vibe to trying to make great music.

Sweet Crude & SFAM | Buku Project

UphoricTV double-teamed Sweet Crude and SFAM while sitting down with some local flavor, Louisiana crawfish! With mouths full of down-home flavor, these three talk big breaks at Buku, the music scene in New Orleans and their plans for releasing new albums and EPs. SFAM describes their upcoming album as ‘pretty’, almost creating their own subgenre called ‘pretty trap’. Sweet Crude is in the home stretch in the creation of their album, out this summer. They’re doing their best to bring sounds to the audience that they have never heard before. It’s safe to say that they all have big plans for their futures.
