It truly was a magical week in my life that I will never forget. Lizz recalls our creative escapade so exquisitely. casablancamedia: I feel like the last week flew by. Careful, meticulous planning. Giddy excitement. New friends, old friends. Friends. I had the great privilege to spend the last few days with co-workers and writers to capture some new found music in honour of Ed…

“Weakend” by Oupa. Video made by Porcelain Raft.
Four of the best days of the year for me are spent in Austin every March. After months and months of winter, it is a welcome break of sunshine.

It is really quite awesome discovering a band that already has four albums and all of them are exquisite. Even though my schedule for SXSW is overflowing, I’m hoping that I make it to another one of their shows...
