SXSW was crazy busy this year, but as soon as 24-year-old Canadian singer and songwriter Cat Clyde started to perform for us at the Airpnp, all of our stresses disappeared. The magic of acoustic guitar and vocals is alive and well on Cat Clyde's excellent "Mama Said."

Kamau brought the family down to SXSW. The NYC-based rapper and singer was joined by his brother Nkō Khélí for a ferocious performance in our yard, ripping through a Marvel Alexander and Spacebarre beat at breakneck speed. Kamau followed it up with an explosive set at our No Ceilings showcase, cementing his status as one of the most exciting young performers working today.
