The Kaffeine Buzz show has been on a bit of hiatus over the past year, and now we’re taking the timing of this podcast relaunch to align with SXSW 2016.
Our plans for The Kaffeine Buzz show will coincide with our other planned coverage, which beyond Music, will include Interactive, Film, SXstyle, SXsports, Comedy, the parties and the mayhem, along with interviews, on-the-ground stories, and photo essays of all the action.
Now seasoned veterans of SXSW, Sheffield’s The Crookes return to Austin with treasures in tow: ten brand new tracks that make up their 2016 full-length album, Lucky Ones, which follows Dreams of Another Day EP, released when the band first appeared at SXSW in 2010, Chasing After Ghosts (2011), Hold Fast (2012), and Soapbox (2014).
The Crookes sat down with Kaffeine Buzz today, theoretically speaking, via Skype (along with intermittent screen and audio freezes) to discuss the Sheffield band’s third album, Soapbox (out April 14 on Fierce Panda in the U.K, April 15 on Modern Outsider in the U.S.), and their third time back to Austin to perform a SXSW 2014.

The last day of SXSW 2010 for me. Started with the British Embassy Brunch, featuring The Crookes and Broadcast 2000, but no coffee. Then over to see Of Verona, the Filter Party for Athlete and The Constellations, ending with Alvarez Kings, P.K. 14, and two other bands I wasn't into, at all. Finally time to detox and get some sleep. Can't wait for next year!
