SXSW Cheat Sheet Part 2: Five More Bands You Can't Miss
  • FRIDAY, MARCH 08, 2013

  • Posted by: Stephen Cardone

We know the list of SX bands is vertigo-inducing, so we've decided to help you out with a handy list of highlights! Here's our first five picks and where you can catch them.

Shout Out Louds

Fresh off the release of their excellent album Optica, Shout Out Louds have been around SXSW for a while now. The 12-year indie veterans from Stockholm are set to blow the doors off this year with their incredibly refined pop oriented sounds, which is sure to get everybody dancing and moving.

Check out their video for "Blue Ice" below:



Night Beds

Night Beds started as the project of two Colorado Springs students before they evolved into what they are today. Currently based out of Nashville, the band is looking to make a splash as they just released Country Sleep, their debut album. We hope everyone enjoys chilling out to their beautifully mellow vibe.

Take a look at the video for "Even If We Try":



Parquet Courts

Brooklyn-based punk band Parquet Courts bring some classic NYC anarchy to SX this year. Their nostalgia fueled energy should provide plenty of head bangability to the equation and we're seriously looking forward to it.

Rock along to their live music video for "Borrowed Time" right here:



Lianne La Havas

English folk singer and songwriter Lianne La Havas has written songs with Willy Mason and the moment you hear her fragile, yet striking voice you'll know why. She possesses a keen sense of detail and her recently released debut album really showcased that. She's got some touring under her belt now too, so expect a pro level performance.



The Orwells

The Orwells made huge noise when they broke through, mainly because the punk band members were still in high school. Since then, they have graduated early so they can pursue their wonderfully distorted music career. The young bloods are looking to rock harder and louder than anyone else this year, hopefully projecting them into wider acceptance.

Watch them walking around in a mall for the "Mallrats (la la la)" video:



See you at SXSW!
