So we just got back in from Miami after a long and eventful week at Miami’s WMC/Ultra and the week before at Austin’s South by SouthWest Music Conference. We had a great time and are home with loads of content that we are logging or converting from notes to articles.
If you’ve been keeping up at all, you have seen our ongoing coverage of “The Road to SXSW” with Ambassadors. The mix for “Habits” is coming along. I am currently sending a rough to the guys so we can pick up a tambourine track we all managed to forget on our last day tracking together, but that mix will be final and proudly shown for all in the next week. In addition, we have our live coverage of the boys from some of their shows with Lights we caught, as well as their appearances at SXSW.
