M83 is still promoting their last album, 'Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming', and why not? It was a stunning release that appeared high on many top albums lists last year. This time around the single is "Steve McQueen", another epic tune awash in ethereal harmonies and waves of warm synths.
The Austin City Limits Music festival boasts 130 bands on 8 stages across a three-day weekend. As any seasoned festival-goer knows, the task of taking in as many of those acts as possible is no small feat.
This year's top artists are a diverse lot represented by two of the world's biggest pop divas, a plethora of critically adored indie faves, some new talents emerging from the hip-hop underground, a couple of veteran Americana acts, and a few alt-rock legends among many more.
