Our friends at NPR Music return to Stubb's for their annual SXSW showcase, which this year features Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Alt-J. You can watch the full show here, live as it happens, Wednesday at 9pm. We'll also add those performances to your Friday night soundtrack on FUV and The Alternate Side, starting at 7pm — right after the Public Radio Rocks SXSW Day Stage.

Take Five with The Alternate Side: Alt-J

by Kara Manning

Clever move on the part of Alt-J to name its debut album An Awesome Wave; the title also neatly sums up the young, Leeds-born band's amazing trajectory for the year.

On top of praise from critics and sold-out gigs, last week the quartet was named one of this year's nominees for the Mercury Prize, the most prestigious music award for UK and Ireland musicians. An Awesome Wave has been out in the UK since May, but it was finally, at long last, released in the States this week, on Canvasback.
