SXSW 2018 2018-03-13
The Yellow Traffic Light Turin, ITALY2.00 0.00 Dreamy 60s era shoegazer rock, lots of guitar and vocal distortion.
Yemen Blues Tel Aviv, ISRAEL2.00 0.00 Funky world music ensemble out of Tel Aviv.
Yoga Fire Mexico City, MEXICO2.00 0.00 Trap act with thrumming verses punctuated by unique vocables. Also solid Street Fighter reference.
Chainska Brassika London UK-ENGLAND2.00 0.00 If I was having dinner in a touristy part of, let’s say, Hawaii with my grandma and this band were playing, I’d be like, “this is nice and appropriate for the occasion”. Otherwise, it’s a no from me dog.
Doe London UK-ENGLAND2.00 0.00 Doe is classified as rock on her profile but it’s certainly more contemporary pop. She sounds angry though so I guess that’s rock.
Ghost Twin Winnipeg, MB, CANADA2.00 0.00 Dark synthpop duo with soaring and haunting female vocals. Song titles include Chymical Wedding, Mystic Sabbath, and Saturn Swallows the Sun
Touts Derry, UK-N. IRELAND2.00 0.00 Aggressive and fast Irish punk rock.
Totally Mild Melbourne, VIC, AUSTRALIA2.00 0.00 Never has a band name so perfectly captured a band. It’s so mild and chill for indie rock that it would give those pure moods CDs with the pan flutes a run for their money.
Shopping London, UK-ENGLAND2.00 0.00 Shopping sits somewhere between light-hearted punk and psychedelic rock. It’s not polished or trying too hard.
