SXSW 2016 2016-03-15
James Supercave Los Angeles CA4.00 2.65 Rad dancey indie rock
Sun Kil Moon San Francisco CA4.00 3.25 Melancholic folk with frontman Mark Kozelek who sings in a sort of clear mumble while he strums on his guitar. Each album follows different themes and moods, from boxing to the death of a second cousin.
Bob Moses New York NY4.00 3.65 Mellow, smoke-tinged rock-electronic house music. Picture the most stylish lounge bar in the hippest part of town and there's a good chance these guys would be playing there.
BADBADNOTGOOD Toronto CANADA4.00 3.45 Instrumental jazz-rock that keeps you on your toes. They blend constantly changing beats with droning guitars and every other thing you wouldn't expect.
Knox Hamilton Little Rock AR4.00 2.80 Indie Pop/Rock with the hit song "Work It Out" released Aug 2014
Freedom Fry Los Angeles CA4.00 3.15 Male/female duo/trio who sing the vocals to their folksy pop tunes back and forth to each other. If someone asked me what "Californian pop" sounded like, I would play them this band.
Little Simz London UK-ENGLAND4.00 3.15 Crazy fast rappin' Brit. Backing beats are completely inconsequential when she starts flowin'.
Weval Amsterdam NETHERLANDS4.00 2.80 Two producers from the Netherlands who put out smokey electronic jams.
Cash+David London UK-ENGLAND4.00 2.60 Moody electro-duo with the female guest vocalist from Bombay Bicycle Club. The latest song, PAINS 4 U is a bit of a progression and hopefully a sign of what's to come.
