SXSW 2016 2016-03-15
Hashback Hashish New Delhi INDIA2.00 0.60 Minimalist electronic
In The Whale Denver CO2.00 1.55 Hard punk rock duo
Ho99o9 Newark NJ2.00 3.25 Hardcore, almost metal level of weird punk? Is this something? I don't really understand what it is but expect yelling and anger in spades. You say their name like "horror" even though I think the internet will agree with me that 9's are g's and not r's.
Alexander Jean LOS ANGELES CA2.00 2.75 Dramatic duo with a female lead who sounds just a little like Sia with that sort of broken-pitch-wail thing she does on the higher notes. You know what I'm talking about.
PHASES Los Angeles CA2.00 2.95 Where do I begin with this dance-pop outfit out of LA? With the novel-length description they gave of themselves to sxsw.com or perhaps their most recent album cover that is just plain 80's ridiculousness. Or maybe I should talk about the fact that they used to be called JJAMZ (pronounced juh-jamz). PHASES I love you. Never change.
Yung Aarhus DENMARK2.00 3.95 Hard to find any music from them since their website is broken. From what I can tell, it's a fiery punk band in the guitar section such that the vocals are mostly covered up.
Vaadat Charigim Tel Aviv ISRAEL2.00 1.55 Quieter indie rock sung in Hebrew. There are a lot of slow "The National"-like builds in the background and the voice is a quiet and echoing on top.
Zavala Chicago IL2.00 3.05 Electronic music and sounds
Visonia Santiago CHILE2.00 1.30 Minimal wave electro
