Tiny Victories releases "Those Of Us Still Alive" EP + tours down to Austin

Sonically, Brooklyn based duo Tiny Victories could be defined as a shoegazer interpretation of electro-rock, their songs filled with droney parts, but without giving up the textural details of electronica. However, their sober melodies seem to find inspiration in the controlled and almost austere vocal delivery of post punk heroes Husker Du or their DIY followers Parts & Labor. Today the band is releasing their debut EP "Those Of Us Still Alive", and then hop on a van to tour their way down to Texas for some SXSW related shows.


Lightouts releases new single, plays SXSW

Based out of Gowanus, the NYC neighborhood best known for its polluted canal (which helps keep the area's rents relatively affordable), Lightouts boast an appreciation for punchy tunes filled with power chords. After playing CMJ and local Brooklyn haunts The Knitting Factory, Union Hall and Rock Shop, the band has caught some buzz. They released their fourth single, “The Cure for Shyness” on February 7th, an energetic anthem which displays an evolution in their musical aesthetic towards faster bpms and fuller wall of sounds. Be sure to catch them at SXSW and you can listen to their new single streaming below. - Chelsea Eriksen


Nashville artists to watch at SXSW: Madi Diaz

Like a young Gillian Welch, songstress Madi Diaz has absorbed the best of Nashville into her alt-country bag of tricks. Along with co-songwriter Kyle Ryan, Diaz has been writing and performing since attending the Paul Green School of Rock Music as a teenager. Now she's re-packaged classics from her catalogue along with some new nuggets for her first release off eclectic label TinyOGRE Entertainment. "Plastic Moon" finds the artist in a romantic mood, with tracks like 'Gimme a Kiss' and 'Love You Now' as perfect excuses to take a summer drive with that person you just met over Valentine's Day. Madi will be playing The Deli's UN-OFF party at Austin's Gypsy Lounge on 03.15, the show will be announced soon. - Mike Levine
