Ovrld has teamed up with Austin Mic Exchange and the League DJz for a new podcast called The Hot Conversation. Co-hosted by Protextor and J-Ro, the purpose of this podcast is to shine a light on weird culture all around Austin, from poetry to fashion to comedy to music (we do, however, have a soft spot for Texas hip hop). JRo outta #LeagueDJs spins and breaks tracks from Texas musicians and in the meantime, he and Protextor sit down and chop it up over Lone Star Beers with a different guest each week. The result is a casual hang with real people doing cool shit in ATX. It’s not radio and it’s not an interview — it’s a hot conversation. This week, we went and visited BLXPLTN at their studio and talked to them about the Lord of the Rings, gerrymandering, their name and much more. You can catch them at ABGB this Saturday, February 25th! The SXSW event the band is putting on with Ovrld is on March 14th and 15th, details are here; the live THC event is also on March 14th at Spider House, details are here.
The BLXPLTN covers we talked about are these:
