SXSW Presents: Gold Casio

There's always been a certain undeniably cosmic quality about Gold Casio. Delightfully catchy and infectiously addicting, the psychedelic disco dance four-piece know just what it takes to get you to move, no matter how hard you may want to resist. In almost every case, resistance is futile, seeing as their trippy synthesized beats overwhelm the body with the sensation of movement.

And that's barely speaking of the reaction from their recorded material. Seeing them live, the incredible energy exuded from each of Gold Casio's is becoming. It's a charm not typical of many acts, but one they've managed to uphold since they popped up onto the scene. Though the music is always at the forefront their performances are so much more than that, incorporating lively costumes, set pieces and props, and even their bodies as creative devices for enlivening each production. 

There's never a dull set or sound with Gold Casio, and you can expect the most from their SXSW performances, as well as their new EP titled Sinners due out in April.

Sloppy Jane to play SXSW, new album out 03.02

Sloppy Jane is a band with bizarre and grotesque inclinations and an interest in translating them into their performances. Naked bodies, colored dye, and television screens set a backdrop for melting inhibitions as the music (and often the musicians) tumbles into chaotic fits. It’s a must-see for fans of avant-garde, performative punk. Deservingly, the band, led by Haley Dahl, will bring its ravenous live show to SXSW this year with a string of other dates surrounding the trip. Leading up to those gigs, Sloppy Jane will unleash new album “Willow” on March 2nd with a release show at The Glove on March 7th. The group is currently scheduled to play SXSW showcases for Melted Magazine (March 12th), Desert Daze (March 14th), Invertebrate (March 17th, day), and Siren Sound (March 17th, night). – Cameron Carr


Tongue Patrol - Unusually interesting new single "God B With You"

Interesting avante-garde indie rock from Tongue Patrol. Their latest release is a single called “God B With You.” It’s jangly and makes you feel like you can’t see in focus. The chorus section takes a complete left turn with a hectic loud/quiet dynamic. If you’re tired of what you usually listen to then Tongue Patrol will give you a shot of what you need. They are having a double release party with Mother Tongues on Friday February 16th. Nikki Fierce is also the bill. – Kris Gies

Crosslegged opens Hovvdy record release with ambient-electro folk 2.16

It’s easy to call to mind artists similar to Crosslegged, but it’s not easy to think of artists that actually sound like Crosslegged. Behind the music made by Brooklyn artist Keba Robinson under the Crosslegged name is a sense of invention and adventure. There’s something in common with the delicate songwriting of folk, the melodic ease of pop, the precise arrangements of electronic music, but Crosslegged fits neatly into none of these categories. There’s more in common here with the innovative work of artists like Bjork, Sufjan Stevens, or Kate Bush. The excitement of originality is what makes Robinson's work worth following. You can see the next performance February 16th when Crosslegged opens for Hovvdy’s record release show at Baby’s All Right. – Cameron Carr
