Five Women Hitting SXSW 2019 Looking to Take Over the World

 March 8th is International Women's Day but you don't need to remind these five ladies because they are owning shit the other 364 days of the year. Strong opinionated women know how to dominate the mic and get their message heard - and these women are no exception. While each their style is unique, they are all forces of nature that demand your attention.

Nadia Tehran (SWE)

Growing up in a Muslim Iranian family in a small Christian town in the middle of Sweden, Nadia Tehran was seemingly destined to explore the limits and boundaries of personal and political identity - right in the gap between systems and beliefs, belonging nowhere and everywhere equally.  

 

Ivy Sole (North Carolina)

Sole is the product of the gospel and soul upbringing afforded by her hometown, the mainstream R&B and backpack hip hop of the late 90s and 2000s, and an organic obsession with indie rock that she’s cultivated into a soundscape that's all her own. 

 

Da Chick (POR)

It’s easy to stumble on the idea that listening to Da Chick is like travelling back in time: maybe to that New York era where Disco and Punk, New Wave and Hip-Hop would cross styles and shake the dance floors. Nothing wrong with that idea: there’s a lot of that classic Boogie spirit, with a strong passion and straightforwardness, a sassy attitude and a groove drinking from the best sources. 

 

Holiday Sidewinder 

Holiday Sidewinder has been dubbed one of the next pop provocateurs and her “unapologetic thot bop” is a soaring celebration of sexual liberation inviting “undeniable comparisons to Madonna”.

Bbymutha (Tennessee)

Joining Southern rap’s legacy of originality, by choosing local flairs, non-apologetic attitude, & candidly blending life experiences into hard-hitting bars - Bbymutha pointedly brandishes her sexuality in the face of respectability politics & unapologetically celebrating women for their ambition, savvy, sexuality, & vulgarity.

The Punks Have Invaded: Five Punk Bands Worth Seeing at SXSW 2019

 Populism is on the rise, repressive governments act with impunity and the wealth gap steadily widens, but punks across the globe are still channeling their discontent and rage into music that is worth a listen. Punk has so many permutations these days that nailing down the sound is a fool's errand, but luckily at SXSW, we get to imbibe it all in one week. So we've compiled five international groups that are going to make the end of the world, a party worth going too. 

 

 

Amyl & The Sniffers (AUS) 

An explosive punk band from Melbourne, Amyl and the Sniffers quickly developed a reputation for their unhinged live performances, in which manic lead singer Amy Taylor can often be seen crowd surfing or climbing up the walls. 

 

Otoboke Beaver (JAP) 

 A punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, their off-kilter self taught compositional and confrontational performance skills, together with the band's incredible musicianship make for a thrilling and unmissable live act.

 

Drinking Boys & Girls Choir (KOR) 

Drinking Boys and Girls Choir are a skate-punk trio from Daegu City that sing in Korean and English, making for a dynamic sonic range embracing melodic hardcore, pop-punk and indie rock. Their songs tackle unreasonable government, police power and the corruption of Park Geun-hye's government.

 

Nancy (UK)

The enigmatic songwriter was raised in subdued North East England and not unlike many others, Nancy dressed & acted in ways that seemed out-of-the-ordinary. Combined with androgynous and abnormal physical features, “Nancy” was both a punchline &label throughout the songwriter’s formative years

 

Psychedelic Porn Crumpet (AUS)

Take the trail out of Perth via Leederville and keep on driving, and you might just stumble across an old horse shed – one where weirdness roams free. Across the bridge from said shed, house parties rage until the early hours and beyond, while around the corner there’s a sky-high pile of trash that acts as a makeshift home for the local rat population. It’s here, amongst jam sessions that would last six-hours plus, that the wacky, sprawling sound of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets was born.

Five Industrial Acts Bringing the Pain to SXSW 2019

Traffic, big brands and more Californians tend to give Austin locals a negative conception of SXSW, but for music lovers it is a smorgasboard of new bands and under-appreciated genres that are suddenly thrust into tangibility. While Austin has a handful of industrial bands, SXSW 2019 is offering a plethora of global options to choose from, and if gritty gothtronica is your bag, you need to check out these five acts below. The Negative Gain showcase on March 16 at Valhalla on 710 Red River St will be a cornucopia of industrial talent worth investigating as well.

 DSTR (GER)

East-German electronic project DSTR has an all new line up with three veterans of the German electronic music scene. They are back to infuse a fresh new sound straight from the heart of post-Soviet Germany.

 

Odonis Odonis (CAN)

Odonis Odonis has continued to push their sound further into the depths of post-apocalyptic experimentation. The band is on their fourth LP and venturing into a starker and more dance-floor friendly space.

 

Gallops (UK)

Gallops has been revitalised, rejuvenated and driven to create music that has stretched their horizons, and is driven by the propulsive charge of electronic music.

 

Grun Wasser (Chicago)

The music of Grun Wasser is inspired by the juxtaposition of beauty and tragedy in the world. They stands in solidarity with all people who have been disenfranchised by the negligent powers of society. 

 

Goo Monday (AUS)

 Goo Munday is a music producer and performer from Sydney Australia. Her music is a hypnotising mix of dark electronic beats, jolting screams and ethereal vocals.

Five Promising Houston Rappers at SXSW 2019

The golden age of Houston rap (Geto Boys, Swishahouse, Screwed Up Click) may be a distant memory, despite some continuing to rep the city (Z-Ro, Paul Wall, Devin the Dude etc), yet there is a new generation (not talking about Travis Scott) that is rising to carry the torch and hold down 'Screwston' as a hub of quality rap. Luckily, 160 miles West from H-Town, is the largest music festival in the world, so it's only right that SXSW gets a glimpse of the next class of powerhouse rappers emerging from the 'City of Syrup'. Here are five up-and-comer acts that are looking to impress at SXSW 2019.

Megan Thee Stallion 

The newly crowned queen of Houston rap, Megan Thee Stallion aka Tina Snow, has incisive lyrics that are as clever as they are provocative. Young, ambitious and undeniably talented, Megan is giving Austin once last glance before she takes over the world. 

 

Tim Woods 

Poet, MC, flower-child, or hippy, Tim Woods has gone by a multitude of names. That alone should speak volumes about his versatility and creativity.

Doughbeezy  

Doughbeezy a.k.a The South East Beast has been exciting crowds and gaining fans since high school where he got his start doing impromptu concerts at the lunch table. Since recording his first song in 2003 Doughbeezy has continued to progress as a recording artist, live performer, and a successful brand. 

 

Rizzoo Rizzoo 

When it comes the infrastructure of the modern Houston sound, The Sauce Factory has played a pivotal part into the way the rest of the nation looks at Texas' emerging soundscape. One of the X Factors in the collective that has been gaining steam is Rizzoo Rizzoo.

 

Doeman 

 Born and raised in Southeast Houston, Doeman’s flows are largely about his experiences as a Mexican-American man. It is no surprise, then, that his lyrics focus less on typical hip-hop subjects such as women and material possessions, and focus more on social statements and current events.
