KVRX: indie radio sounds
Raymond Raposa of Castanets
The Austin, Texas based university radio station, KVRX, has had many, I mean, MANY, artists of calibre pick up instruments and play while visiting the musical burg of Austin and it's fine college radio station.
By going here you can peruse the archive of close to 185 recorded artists - not all the songs performed are now available, but there are usually two or three for each artist. There is everything from Arab Strap and The Early Day Miners to Sebadoh and Wesley Willis [interview]. The majority of acts are indie rock based with a couple of exceptions... one being the mystical neo-folkie Devendra Banhart.
