We posted the video of the opening song from G-Side’s epic set at the NPR showcase at SXSW on March 18th. Huntsville’s soon to be globetrotting duo were the only hip-hop act on the bill at venue The Parish that day, the crowd were largely unfamiliar with ST and Clova’s music and message, but – as the excellent quality audio below attests – the combination of a carefully planned set, inspired backing vocals and two artists rapping and narrating like it was the last thing they’d ever do, won the audience round long before closer ‘So Wonderful’. If we had to recommend one thing all month it would be this.
