The Middle Biscuit is a weekly SXSWfm specialty radio show stream, hosted by Elizabeth Spruiell on MixCloud, which focuses on indie/pop/rock music gems (about an hour long).
SXSWfm is the official internet radio stream of the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival which celebrated its 30th anniversary in Austin, Texas from March 15-20, 2016. This is a great way to discover new music.
This is how Elizabeth describes her weekly show every Thursday at 12 & 6 CT.
What is the Middle Biscuit? Literally speaking, it is the warm, highly-coveted, center, perfect biscuit my brothers and I fought over when our Mom set down a pan of her homemade fare. Figuratively, the middle biscuit is a symbol representing any thing that is elite compared to those that surround it. Tune in weekly to feast on what I consider middle biscuit tracks and middle biscuit artists from the massive universe of indie-pop-rock. Mostly new stuff, sometimes classic, either way, you’ll get your fill.
Middle Biscuit #95 – No Control (3/2/2017) – 57 min
Elizabeth describes this week’s show:
This is me; stumbling, tumbling, crumbling into March. Generally March means college hoops, baby bees, and SXSW! This week’s Middle Biscuit honors none of those traditions. Baby bees can’t play drums! Nonetheless, I did sneak in a few bands I’m hoping to catch in a few weeks here in Austin. And as always, a few new nibbles from those that make my guts happy.
