First up is David Keevill, who returns with to take a long hard look at what’s been going on in Prog so far this year…

In perfect contrast to last week when none of the new releases were yanking our crank, this week we’ve got a veritable plethora of high-profile, high-powered, high-interest records coming out, all of which were contenders for If You Buy One Thing This Week. So it’s with some degree of pride that Hawk Eyes can claim the prize this week, for their frankly magnificent new EP, That’s What This Is.

South By Southwest is a wonderful place where Foo Fighters play on the patio of a bar and Kvelertak play five shows in three days and we see them all by dumb luck. While the big picture says SXSW is about bands for radio, the underground says it’s all about metal. That’s why the pizza shop on 6th St is called Hoek’s Death Metal Pizza and has a dozen metal bands playing in its backyard every day. There are also some excellent bands flying over to Austin from the UK. Here’s a rundown of the seven that we could find.
