Episode 170: Laura Gibson - Empire Builder

For 30 years now, SXSW has brought the best and the brightest of the music industry to the music capital of the world for for a week of controlled chaos and musical overload. Music journalist Marcus J. Moore attended this summer camp for music nerds for the first time this year, and he’s hanging out with us to report back on what went down.

Laura Gibson has made a career of making sublimely beautiful folk music, but on Empire Builder she beat back adversity and ended up with her best album to date.

Oddisee is back with a free album Alwasta, and we’ve got a politically charged track off of it to rock your freaking dome.

(Editors Note: The 2012 Oddisee album that Kevin butchered the title of in the intro is actually named People Hear What They See. And it is excellent.)
