LOOK OUT AUSTIN, IT'S ABOUT TO GET DUSTY! January 24 2017, 0 Comments

That's right, our friends in Yucky Duster are headed down to Austin as *official* SXSW artists. Fancy! That means, of course, that they're touring their way down from Brooklyn to Austin. If you've got anything they can hop on for the way down (specifically NOLA 3/14) or any unofficial shows during SXSW, please reach out to us or them. 

In other YD news, Anthony Fantano reviewed Duster's Lament on The Needledrop last weekend, calling it a "five-song set of earnest, introspective indie rock and pop" and "a little punk, a little twee." He had a lot of great things to say about the cassette and its mix of personality and introspection, giving it a "light to decent 7" (lol) out of 10. You can peep the video on his website or below!

MTV SAYS DIARRHEA PLANET BEST OF SXSW March 24 2013, 2 Comments

MTV says "Take away the branding, the deal-making, the app-launching, the corporate sponsorships, the giant Doritos stage, Train playing the Rachel Ray day party, the free piggyback rides, the weird giveaways, the free beer, the expensive cabs, the long lines and the Justin Timberlake, and really what you have left is a little ol’ dusty festival with a band named Diarrhea Planet on the schedule. Decades from now, when those of us who attended SXSW 2013 are on our deathbeds, we’ll whisper but two words to our loved ones, and those words will be “Diarrhea Planet.” They won’t understand, but we will." Uh-huh. And they're not the only ones who got rocked at DPSXSW. Check out these links: CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND, EMUSIC, CURRENT, SPEAK INTO  MY GOOD EYE, PRETTY MUCH AMAZING, FRONTIER PSYCHIATRIST - Getting the picture? Yeah, you're getting the picture. Here's where you get "Loose Jewels".
