Big Freedia at SXSW 2014

Nine new albums. Two new EPs. What a week of new music we have in front of us from SXSW 2014 Showcasing Artists!

The Queen of Bounce is back! Big Freedia, a pioneer in the New Orleans’ bounce scene, releases his fourth full-length album just a few months after performing and speaking at SXSW Music. Country music legend and beloved Austinite Willie Nelson also returns with a new studio album (we’ve lost track of how many he’s released over the years), titled Band of Brothers. Read our review of the record here.

The two aforementioned albums are just the tip of the musical iceberg this week. See the full list of today’s SXSW 2014 artist alumni releases below. Happy listening!
