Noisy NYC artists at SXSW: Happy New Year

Eleanor Logan has a lot of loud friends, but somehow her unadorned voice always manages to be heard above the din. If her music's any indication, she must be one of those people who always gets what she wants without having to demand things go her way.
Known primarily for her work with the early grunge-nostalgic trio Adult Themes, the Brooklyn artist has just released a 2-song 7" courtesy of Crikey! Records under her new solo project, Happy New Year. Where Adult Themes hash out a fun but tried-and-true noise rock formula, Happy New Year seems more than happy to include any sound within its sonic washing machine. Guitar-driven fuzz and aggressive percussion hits surround Eleanor as she sits pretty in the middle of all the action. It's intense and calm, focused and chaotic...kinda hard to put your finger on, which only makes it more interesting.
She promises another song next month, so I'm looking forward to hearing what she sticks in the blender this time.
See her at SXSW all this week. Check her site for details. - Mike Levine (@goldnuggets)

Interview w/The Deli's Philly Best Emerging Artists Poll Winners: Sun Airway!

If you live in Philly, you should be quite familiar with The Deli’s Philly Best Emerging Artists Poll Winners, Sun Airway. Well, this week the former A-siders will be descending down to SXSW to perform anywhere and everywhere as many up-and-coming indie acts tend to do, but we are certain that our champs will leave their mark on this year’s festival. We had a chance to catch up with Sun Airway’s Jon Barthmus before he started his journey down to Austin, and surprisingly there wasn’t much talk at all about this week’s chaotic schedule of events (you can find Sun Airway's SXSW schedule as well as other Philly acts here). But Jon was nice enough to share with us some of his personal favorite things and possible future plans on the horizon for Sun Airway here.
