SXSW 2018 2018-03-13
Jay Prince London UK ENGLAND4.00 3.00 Progressive Hip-hop / R&B out of London
Noah Slee Auckland NEW ZEALAND4.00 3.65 Electronic R&B with a falsetto male vocal. He shifts between danceable beats and quiet moments filled with emotion.
Khalid El Paso TX4.00 0.00 This guy has some pretty soulful vocals and is making some pretty sexy R&B with them.
Golden Dawn Arkestra Austin TX4.00 0.00 Big and boisterous, these guys bring the strangeness with their mix of 60's hippy culture and the theme to a 70's police drama. It would be hard to sit still at this.
Flint Eastwood Detroit MI4.00 0.00 Big beat danceable synth-pop with female vocals. She likes hats.
Young Jesus Los Angeles, CA4.00 0.00 Oft-restrained but emotionally intense indie rockers with quiet introspective lyrics punctuated by more aggressive moments of volume.
Benin City London UK-ENGLAND4.00 0.00 If you made a Venn diagram of all the Massive Attack and Bloc Party albums you’d end up with this band.
Flyte London UK-ENGLAND4.00 0.00 English poppy indie rock outfit who aren’t afraid of a ballad. The vocals are crisp and bright and the backing is guitar-driven. Like a less experimental Shins.
Gaz Coombes Oxford UK-ENGLAND4.00 0.00 Ambitious indie rock from the lead singer of Supergrass (remember Supergrass??). Some songs seem fairly mellow-psychedelic and others are bombastic rock journeys.
