Black Pumas: SXSJ 2019

Black Pumas won "Best New Band" honors at the 2019 Austin Music Awards, so FUV wanted to make sure you got to hear these hometown faves while we were in Austin too. At the core is the collaboration of producer/guitarist Adrian Quesada and singer-songwriter Eric Burton. Add horns, back-up singers, and moves, and this is a modern soul sound from a band to watch.

Mountain Man: SXSJ 2019

The three voices in Mountain Man have traveled in different directions since their 2010 debut, but fortunately their musical paths have once again aligned. Harmonies (and humor) result when that happens, and at South x San José, FUV was not only treated to songs from the trio's latest album, Magic Ship, but also the pure chemistry that continues to bring Molly Sarlé, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Meath together as this self-described "aggressively quiet" band.
