Anna Wise brings her (electro-soul) feminist message to SXSW

The unique artistry in the music of Anna Wise stems from the role her lyricism and vocal talent plays in modern political discourse about the role of the female. With production and soulful melodies that evoke associations with electronic artists like Little Dragon, she offers both bold observations and protest about the social limitations placed on women: "No one tells the woman we go through the fiery flames to come out stronger / A girl has got to try twice as hard and still it's you who says you made her," she pipes on "Stacking That Paper". It would feel like blasphemy to pass over Wise's work without giving it the attention it deserves, because this isn't just art for art's sake. The urgency of the political moment, especially for women, calls for vital art that shakes the jaded mind awake, and this is precisely what her work does. Anna Wise released sophomore LP "The Feminine: Act II" in February and will be performing at SXSW at the Empire Control Room on march 14th, check out her video from single 'Coconots' below - Andrew Strader 





Cotillon brings sunny indie pop to SXSW on 03.18 at Hotel Vegas

A kind of indie rock that seeps into your subconscious, Cotillon's music is the background to a sunny day in the park - or maybe it just triggers that thought. It's fresh and sweet but also nostalgic and blue. Even on a first listen, you intuitively feel like you've heard it somewhere before. Blending groovy, irresistible hooks with acoustic-heavy instrumentation, and production from the likes of Al Carlson (St. Vincent, Wild Nothing, Ariel Pink) and Shane Butler (Quilt), Jordan Caros, the man behind the Cotillon moniker, offers us a classic sound we've all been missing - without knowing it. The band will be performing several shows in Austin during SXSW, including one at Hotel Vegas on 03.18. - Andrew Strader

Hiccup gets (sonic)scooped + goes to SXSW

Computers sometimes make us do things we don't mean to do - and that's not always bad. I meant to assign a blurb about band Hiccup to our contributor Dave Cromwell, but my email was hijacked by an auto-complete function... the message reached instead Sonicscoop.com's founder/editor David Weiss (who never writes for us about bands). Unexpectedly, he went ahead and replied with this:

"Ready for some rockin’ rockin’ ROCK? Hold on to your rearview mirrors and prepare for a fast ride of poppy punk!!!!! 'Imaginary Enemies' by NYC trio Hiccup is FOR REAL, all drums guitar grit and gorgeous that descends on your ears like a beehive buzzzzzzzzzzzin’ with it.

Alex! Hallie! Piyal! Catch them on March 10th at SXSW, March 14th at Sidewinder in Austin, or back in our little cow town of NYC March 26th at Rough Trade. The latter especially apropos, because if you like it ROUGH – and lovely – then Hiccup is what’s up. And don’t keep that on the down low." - David Weiss (Sonicscoop.com)

P.S. Thanks David!
