RAC: Tear You Down feat. Alex Ebert

Our week in music looks to some of the standout artists seen at this year's SXSW festival

SoundCloud hosted their first official SXSW showcase this year, and the lineup included a stellar mix of emerging and established artists. One falling somewhere in the middle is André Allen Anjos, better known as the main remix master behind the former collective RAC. The Portland-based Portuguese artist and producer has taken a pause from putting his distinct touch on music from his peers and is releasing his own two-part album, called Strangers. The LP features a range of co-conspirators, including Tegan & Sara, YACHT, Tokyo Police Club and more. For a taste, check out “Tear You Down”—which features Alex Ebert from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
