LA bands seen at SXSW: Swimm

Chris Hess and Adam Winn of the psych-pop duo Swimm, have brought their unique beach breeziness and pensive lyrics from Florida to LA. The recently released, Beverly Hells, is a sun-drenched relaxing ride through a genre-bending soundscape. Lo-fi, surf-infused, indie has never been more emotive. Fluidity and weightlessness pervade their sound but their live performances are also as visceral as it can get, and their SXSW 2016 shows confirmed that.


Okay Kaya plays House of Vans SXSW show on Friday

One of most strikingly intense artists to come out of the Brooklyn scene in 2015, Okay Kaya has been releasing a series of mellow singles accompanied by simple but profoundly touching videos. The latest, entitled 'I'm Stupid (but I Love You)," is streaming below. Okay Kaya is playing the SXSW House of Vans show at Austin's Mohawk on Friday March 18.

Queer attack from Brooklyn: PWR BTTM tours with Ra Ra Riot + plays SXSW

Eschewing mediocrity for a full-on queer punk motif, PWR BTTM is a punk duo sodomizing the status quo. Energetic and positive, the message of their music is uplifting, which pairs well with the group's DIY showmanship that grips its live showcases. Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce plan on shocking at SXSW 2106; while their dynamic may be a bit off the beaten path, they don’t seem to care about what other people think, and there is nothing more punk rock than that. After the Austin festival, the band will embark on a tour in support of Ra Ra Riot. Check out their break out single "1994." - Lee Ackerley
