From the digital desk of GoldenHornetATX :
‘While cities across the nation mourn the myriad uncertainties of 2020, more than 45 native and resident musicians from Austin, Texas have joined forces to produce Walk with Me Austin, a powerful anthem created to inspire and unite the City of Austin during a pivotal time in the U.S. Available for download and streaming, Walk with Me Austin brings hope to the community while addressing matters of social and racial injustice, civil unrest, equality and the global coronavirus pandemic.’
The who’s who lsit on this project is too vast to name, but many artists that appear in this video have been featured on the blog before. All proceeds to the purchase of this song will go towards HAAM (Health Alliance for Austin Musicians), so if you’re digging it, follow the links in the description, and share it around while encouraging others to do the same.

Since the days of their inception, Austin-based hip hop crew Magna Carda has done nothing but continue to grow, collect props, and garner respect from peers, fans and critics. COFFEE TABLE TALK VOL. ONE finds the group continuing in the ways that we have all come to know and love. The music is refreshingly addictive and expressive, the lyrics are creative and heartfelt, and the only thing lacking on this project is more songs. Hopefully, the follow-up(s) come sooner than later, because this taste most certainly has me hungry for more.

Last year, OVRLD followed Austin hip-hop favorites Magna Carda around for a wild SXSW. The band had 7 shows slated for 7 nights, and if you know anything about SXSW, you know it doesn’t take long for things to get wild. Where’s The Moon? allows you to enjoy watching a band maintain their focus, direction, and keeping their eye on the prize during everyone’s new favorite Spring Break destination in the ‘industry’.
