In our Current Mood series, we ask some of our favorite artists to curate a playlist according to a specific theme or mood of their choice. For Current Mood #036, Austin, TX band Hovvdy celebrate Texas pride and more. Listen to past Current Mood playlists here.
Austin, Texas duo Hovvdy have been busy the past few months, releasing a covers EP with fellow Texan band Lomelda as well as a great third album, Heavy Lifter. In between, they’ve toured pretty much non-stop since summer, with another run of dates set to start later this month. For their FADER Current Mood playlist, Hovvdy have put together a mix titled Old New Bike, featuring a selection of odds and ends including BROCKHAMPTON, (Sandy) Alex G, and more. Of the mix, the band tells The FADER: “[This mix contains] Texas pride (Dead Sullivan, BROCKHAMPTON), heroes/friends (Dijon, Alex G, Orion Sun, Arthur, Ghost Orchard), and some old and new gems. all very exciting and inspirational!
