SXSWfm: Indie/Pop/Rock – Aug 17

SXSWfm: Indie/Pop/Rock – Aug 17

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_biggerSXSWfm is the official internet radio stream of the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas recently held from March 13-19, 2017. 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 #107 – ECLIPSIN’ (8/17/2017) – 54 min
