Known for its hectic nature and around-the-clock music, South by Southwest is an essential destination for many music lovers. But day after day of constant motion, Texas sun and crowded venues can grow exhausting. We at Paste were lucky enough to take a break from the commotion and invite several top-notch artists to our very own backyard. These intimate, stripped-down recordings, The Riverview Sessions, allowed us to catch a glimpse of these fine talents in a different light.
Houndmouth was an early favorite for us here at Paste, so when we saw their performance at our official showcase early in the week we knew they’d be a great fit for our Riverview Sessions. The band has a powerful presence onstage, but it’s rare to find Houndmouth in a stripped-down setting. Fortunately, they brought their catchy tunes and adventurous attitudes to our house on Riverview Street before they left Austin for the next stop on their tour. Watch this acoustic video for “On the Road,” a brand new song from their recently announced debut album From The Hills Below The City, due out on June 4 via Rough Trade.
