KEXP’S Wussy Write-up For SXSW

Ok, I’m a punk — I know — and in the bad, group-home living not cleaning up your dirty clothes from the floor, crapping in public kind of way, not the sexy, wearing safety pin-wearing and singing gutturally way. I haven’t been updating the blog, and I totally missed saying anything about SXSW. Would it make you feel any better to know that I’ve been playing a ton? No?

Well…

You know who has been writing? The bloggers over at KEXP.

In fact, here’s a wonderful little piece about your’s truly’s favorite band, Wussy. Just go read it, and you don’t really need me to update the blog.

Old But Awesome Podcast: Thao On KEXP

I recently downloaded a ton of old podcasts that I had missed from the KEXP Live Performances Podcast.  If you’ve never heard this podcast, go subscribe now!  It’s an invaluable source for new music.  And even if you listen to it regularly, go back and review the one I’m about to mention.  It’s a podcast from way back in 2008.  It’s with Thao Nguyen.  She’s performing with her band, The Get Down Stay Down.  (Here’s the link for more info about the podcast, but you can also just download it in iTunes.)  And in the podcast, she talks about her songwriting process, about how the band formed, and about how they got on Kill Rock Stars.  Quite a bit of cool stuff.

And on an additional note of Thao goodness, 17dots.com had fans submit questions via Twitter for Thao & Mirah.  Here are the answers.
