Sylvan Esso–a duo out of North Carolina featuring Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn–released its self-titled debut in 2014, and it still sounds forward-thinking, blending R&B, electronic, folk, and pop. The group drops its second album, What Now, on April 28, and this week Sylvan Esso is all over SXSW (they’re also back in Austin for a date at Stubb’s on August 30).

Back in 2015, Meath and Sanborn taped an episode of My KUTX, spinning their favorite songs and talking about sexy jams, synth sounds, and Wyclef Jean’s questionable decision-making. It’s still one of our best guest DJ episodes, and you can hear it again on Saturday, March 18 at 6 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.

Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta: “¡Cafeteando!”

All this week, the Song of the Day spotlights artists performing at SXSW 2017.

Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta is a Chicago-based collective that sounds right at home here in Austin. Their blend of salsa and psychedelia is just a few dance steps away from the Grupo Fantasma/Brownout axis of funk, and fittingly, Grupo and Brownout guitarist Beto Martinez produced Dos Santos’ 2016 EP Fonografic. “¡Cafeteando!” sounds like dubbed-out chicha music that’s been fed back through the Caribbean until it’s a little sun-sick. In other words, it’s a perfect soundtrack for the I-can’t-go-on-I-must-go-on point that comes every year during SXSW.

“”¡Cafeteando!” appears on Fonografic, out now.

–Art Levy // host, Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., producer, My KUTX
