‘Still Waters Run Deep’ – Dry The River @ SXSW 2015

Posted on 01 Apr 2015 at 9:01am

Beauty can be found in the strangest of places.

Think about the South By Southwest Festival, for instance, and beauty might not be the first word that springs to mind. Think about the stifling heat, the sweaty bars, the copious volume of alcohol and the thousands of music lovers crammed in to half a dozen Austin blocks every March and the first answer in a game of word association mightn’t be all that glamorous. Fortunately though, South By is merciful in its size.

From Japanese all-girl punk bands to home-grown New York grime, a motley cast of every size, shape and description are arriving in Texas in ever more increasing numbers each year, slowly transforming a traditional new music showcase into the most eclectic US event on the calendar, finding plenty of room too for those bands who choose to attack the world of rock from a far more elegant angle.

Step forward Dry The River.

Live4ever’s New Tunes Guide: SXSW special feat. Soak, The Districts and more

Posted on 21 Mar 2015 at 7:18am

The New Tunes Guide today features some of the best acts we’ve been interviewing and watching during this week’s South By Southwest Festival in Texas.

Amongst the many highlights is Soak, real name Bridie-Monds Watson, who’s set to release her debut album ‘Before We Forgot How To Dream‘ through Rough Trade on June 1st. The album follows singles such as ‘Blud’, ‘Shuvels’ and ‘B a noBody’ – the latter of which has been a New Tunes Guide highlight in the past.

The Districts are in Texas after releasing their ‘A Flourish and a Spoil’ album through Fat Possum Records earlier this year. “Supposedly, youth is wasted on the young. Not so for The Districts,” our review begins. “If their debut album ‘A Flourish and a Spoil‘ is anything to go by they aren’t wasting anything, especially their youth.”

These and six other SXSW picks can be found by scrolling through our latest collection. Find out much more about this week’s featured artists by clicking on their individual names, and you can catch up with all our previous editions direct through the New Tunes Guide logo above.

Live4ever’s Essential Listening 2014: Best Indie Tracks

Posted on 15 Dec 2014 at 5:31am

Another year, another twelve months when hundreds of bands have been showcased on Live4ever via reviews, New Tunes Guides, interviews and Presents features.

Here, our editor Dave Smith has picked out 20 of the best Indie songs for you to revisit or perhaps discover for the first time, be it the ‘naive enthusiasm’ of Wild Smiles, the ‘raucous, foot-to-the-floor, blink-and-you’ll-miss singles’ of Slaves, or the ‘sense of joy, of wonderment’ that underpins Trampolene‘s ‘I Don’t Know‘. Tomorrow, Trampolene will be talking us through ‘I Don’t Know’s origins and their plans for 2015.

Don’t forget, you can catch up with our Essential Listening 2014 series so far at this link. The final installment, The Albums, is coming next week.
