SXSW 2015 2015-03-17
Brandi Carlile Seattle WA4.33 4.15 Folk, country and soul have consistently intersected in Brandi's decade-long career but no two album is the same. Based on her recent work, I'd expect a few more rustic bluegrass jam sessions.
Roger Sellers Austin TX4.33 0.00 Unique multi-instrumentalist who combines pounding drums, various strings and electronica to form songs to move and groove to.
Ms Mr New York NY4.29 4.20 Indie synth-pop duo w/ vocals like Florence but the sound is much darker
Future Islands Baltimore MD4.29 4.35 Indie-rock-pop band with an animated front man with unique soulful vocals.
Joywave Rochester NY4.29 4.30 Well produced, high-energy indie-pop-rock
Catfish and the Bottlemen Llandudno UK-WALES4.29 4.40 Well-produced alt-rock. It's not the most innovative song-writing in the world, but these are some solid rock songs to jam out to.
Kidnap Kid London UK-ENGLAND4.25 1.44 DJ/producer w/ extra clean beats and the occasional mixed in sultry female vocal
Twin Shadow New York NY4.25 4.10 The 1980s meets indie pop with a sweet mullet thrown in to boot. Always upbeat and dancy.
The Ting Tings Manchester UK-ENGLAND4.25 4.05 Synth/Dance Pop duo with female vocals and an 80's feel, perhaps best known for the hit "That's Not My Name."
