Hear 101X SX Day Party Saviors' New "Might Be Right"

YouTube

Remember that one year, when production personnel screwed up the stage plot at our SXSW event?  Actually, that has happened a couple of times--once in 2012 at what's now Fairmarket, when Fun. saved our collective ass by playing a partly a capella set to keep a Thursday evening alive. Flash forward six years to SXSW '18, when our day party was delayed by a couple of hours due to another prduction snafu. Mt Joy leapt into action by playing a busking set in the middle of Buffalo Billiards' floor while engineers sorted the sound onstage; once that was complete, Louisville's White Reaper maintained the momentum, kicking off the plugged-in portion of the day with a blistering set that'll always give them a special place in our heart. 

 

That's relevant here because White Reaper is back in 2019, with a brand new major label debut album set for later in the year. This week brought a first taste of new White Reaper material, with the release of new song "Might Be Right."  Still present:  the band's lower-case guitar hero flair and pop sensibility layered through a thick coat of garage, with perhaps a little more of the production polish associated with their fellow Kentuckians Cage The Elephant. Check out the new one:

 

 

White Reaper is tentatively set for a 10/22 Austin date at Barracuda.
