Morgan from OVRLD will tell you… on one of Moodie Black‘s last trips into town, they were playing new tunes. When they dropped Sway, us fans and the new listeners got H Y P E. With the specter of the Lucas Acid album release on the horizon, I am happy that Sway is the pre-release single, and even more happy that K is getting to voice the experience of efforts to bring trans-awareness to the table. This song could shape up to be both the jam and a possible benchmark moment all in one.

Ovrld, Protextor and special fill-in host Morgan put Kayleigh Hughes, one of the better scene writers, movers and shakers, on the hot seat for an informative conversation. I could go on and on, but you know how The Hot Conversation gets down.. check it out for yourself.
The awesome guys and gals at OVRLD.com have always been wonderful and supportive people, and they have gone out of their way on numerous occasions to shine alight on the work of Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice. Earlier this month, however, Morgan gave me a compliment he may or may not have even realized he was giving me by inviting me to take part in OVRLD‘s spin on the end of year list, Our Austin Music Friends Picks For Best of 2016. While explicitly stating these were the music friends, one thing that the guys at the OVRLD blog have always hammered in to me is that they love my blog over here, and Morgan never lets me forget that I have built up quite a bit of blogging clout I may not even realize I have.
Cut to yesterday, when the article drops. There I am, top placement on the list, setting the tone for the entire article. Then I began to notice other folks reaffirming choices I made on my list, almost automatically. Then the props for the Butcher Bear and BoomBaptist collaboration video I did started rolling in. THEN the thank you’s begin to roll in via social media for the local choices I made. Yesterday was truly a gratifying day, and I owe it all to Morgan and the folks at OVRLD for finally allowing me to see what’s been in front of me the entire time.
