London Grammar “Strong” [LIVE SXSW 2014]
London Grammar hung out with Austin City Limits Radio back in 2014 at the Live Morning Broadcast during SXSW. The English trio performed one of their fan favorites “Strong,” which appears in their debut album If You Wait.
This year the indie pop group released their first new music since their 2017 sophomore album Truth Is a Beautiful Thing. Their new track is called “Baby It’s You.” “It’s been a long time coming and is just the beginning of something we hope will be really special,” said London Grammar.
Accompanying their latest release is a music video that was directed by Oriol Puig. The visual shows 3D imagery that you should see for yourself. Check it out below.

M Ward “Chinese Translation” [LIVE SXSW 2012]
M. Ward delivered a stripped-down version of his song “Chinese Translation” at the Live Morning Broadcast During SXSW in 2012.
The singer-songwriter released his 10th studio album Migration Stories back in April. His latest work concentrates on one’s passion and fervor for resettling somewhere new. “Some time went by, the stories wove together and I remember them now closer to characters in a dream of how people could treat each other than any kind of front-page news realism. I think music subconsciously—whether writing or listening—is a filter for me. Helping to process all the bad news into something new to build from. ” Stream the new album below.
Dreamers “Painkiller” [LIVE ACL 2017]
Dreamers hung out with us backstage at ACL Fest in 2017, and performed “Painkiller” from their debut album This Album Does Not Exist. Since then, the band released Launch Fly Land in 2019, which is the group’s sophomore album, and have shared two singles this year called “Heat Seeker” and “Teddy Bear.”
“Heat Seeker” was released back in February; the band disclosed the song’s meaning in their music video description, explaining that it’s “about being lost and searching through life, searching for a better way, searching for the truth, searching for a higher meaning and a good time.”
Their latest track “Teddy Bear” dropped last month, and the pop rock trio shared a music video for it earlier this week. Check out both songs below.

“With everything going on in the world right now we can’t tell you how much we appreciate everyone who has bought / streamed our new album.
