KAMPers of the Week: Tim & Emily

Tim & Emily a new KAMPers but have already brought so much love and warmth to the station! They're two of the nicest folks you'll ever meet, plus they like Joanna Newsom so you know they're good people. They'll be moving to Texas after the school year, so we're honored that they've shared some of their remaining time in Tucson with us and that we've gotten the chance to get to know them!

Social Amnesia at Extreme Thing

Imagine being 17 again. You are too young for anything fun, but too old for anything (too) dumb. You are applying for colleges, maintaining your extra curricular activities, keeping up with your homework and making sure you still have something of a social life.

The night started out with a couple local bands Dirt Friends and Whoops. You may know Dirt Friends from the first KAMP Presents show. They play some pretty fun lofi indie pop jams and I enjoyed their set despite the loss of a string mid show. Whoops had a much weirder set and I am still unsure exactly what I watched. Their music is like a comedy version of dance pop, and they currently have an album out called Space Girl.

Juventud Juché at SXSW

Juventud Juché is one of a group of new bands changing the face of Spanish music. They’ve only been making music together for three years, and they’ve already released two full length albums full of catchy garage rock songs on their bassist’s own label. As I watched them play, I noticed the four members of the band had the ultimate bromance—they were like a family on stage, and even when they got off, they all stood together with their arms around each other’s shoulders.

 No one knows the world of metal better than sophomore Andrew Trujillo, aka DJ Wild Horse. As our Metal Music Director, he is the man with the answers and his radio show never disappoints. Check out his interview below for some metal inspiration and then check out his radio show, Metal Health , every Tuesday from 3-4pm MST.

Alex G at SXSW

Alex G is the definition of an Internet boy, which is definitely a real term and not something I just made up. In the early days of his musical career, Alex G – full name, Alex Giannascoli – would upload his blissfully lofi bedroom recordings to Bandcamp, letting them float around the depths of the Internet for kids with too much time on their hands to find. And find them the kids did.

The Chamanas at SXSW (Spanish version)

Hailing from the border cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, The Chamanas is a new Mexican band mixing seventies pop, indigenous sounds, and synthesizers ready to take the Latin Alternative scene by storm. When I met with them on one of the last days of the festival, I was excited to meet them because I had seen them play the night before. During the show, the band had a warm energy and after the first song, the lead singer, Amalia, lit some incense typically used in traditional Mexican healing rituals.

Wray at SXSW

Wray, a three-piece from Birmingham, Alabama, are fresh off the release of their second LP, Hypatia. Driven by repetitive drums and beautiful instrumental swells, the album seeps below consciousness and into the deepest recesses of your mind. It’s relaxing, freeing, rooted in ‘90s shoegaze greats like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive. But there’s more to it than that polished shoegaze sound.
