Howlies
"HOWLIES are the first Rock 'n' Roll band of the 21st Century. Their debut album TRIPPIN' WITH HOWLIES is right up there with the earliest albums of the Ramones, The Sex pistols & The Trashmen. Howlies are fine actors, too. Imagine an unholy blending of the 3 Stooges and Betty Page....

Toy Horses
Toy Horses are the next in a long line of Welsh bands to break into the mainstream with their inventive, exciting and off-beat indie gems. Their melody-fuelled, radio-ready songs are what made them an accidental success after they posted songs on Myspace last year. Tracks were picked up by Radio 1,...

Findlay Brown
Findlay Brown, now signed to Verve in the US, released his second album "Love Will Find You" in February. Moving on from the psychedelic tinged personal folk of his debut, this new album fuses universal themes with classic 60's pop styles with a contemporary twist.

Gin Wigmore
Once you’ve heard Gin sing, you won’t forget the name! For the uninitiated, here are the basics on the sublimely talented Gin Wigmore. Gin is 23, a Kiwi, a gifted songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and she sings like you’ve never heard anyone sing before. Gin was born in Auckland, lives in Sydney and...

Arms
For the past few years, Todd Goldstein was best known as the guitarist in the Brooklyn indie-pop band Harlem Shakes. To those who were listening closely, though, Goldstein has always been ARMS, a persona he's been crafting since 2004. As ARMS, Goldstein takes up a decidedly slower, sweeter, sloppier endeavor, working...

Woven Bones
The raw exuberance that Woven Bones seethes from its tightly-wound inner coil of turmoil isn’t exactly the stuff daydreams are made of, but as their menacing presence has been culminating over the past couple of years, it’s now clear as daylight that their finest efforts would come together on this, their...

The Moondoggies
There is a popular chapter of American mythology that pertains to The Highway. It tells of a two-way ribbon of blacktop running endlessly through our past to our future, linking city to country, offering escape and motion and freedom to travel anywhere the imagination might wander. In this chapter, The Highway...

Le Loup
At the core of every contented family is a sense of balance, an emotional push-and-pull that helps stabilize the entire unit. A similar equilibrium anchors Le Loup’s second album, Family. Recorded in a remote cabin and a Maryland basement, the record finds the middle ground between tribal rock and sonic experimentation....

The Dutchess & the Duke
“This record was written for the studio. This record was written for Greg Ashley to record. In that sense, it was really good because we had a line to measure by: we know what we can do here.” Dutchess and the Duke leader Jesse Lortz is discussing the genesis and execution...

Golden Triangle
Brooklyn's greatest natural resources are rats, crime and dirt. Out of this ugly and overpriced ex-industrial vermin ranch has risen a band that are so loud and full of life that they not only make it bearable but they almost make the squalor seem charming and full of possibility. You go...

Phil and the Osophers made their sixth full length album, Parallelo, available on CD and digitally August 4 on Factual Fabrications, Phil’s own sustainable label. The album finds the Brooklyn 3 piece developing into a jingly and jangly artistic indie rock while retaining carefully crafted and philosophical lyrics. The band has...

Twin Sister
Twin Sister create the kind of buzzy hypnotic pop you've been dreaming about since Galaxie 500 fizzled, cut with Tusk-era Fleetwood Mac thump, and a shot of Lynchian weirdness for good measure. They're slack yet focused, a spark in the dark distance on a desert highway where speed is relative. Formed...

Dinosaur Feathers may come from Brooklyn, but the roots of their music can be traced to spots across the globe. Their debut LP, Fantasy Memorial (self-released 3/2/10), opens with the sound of birds recorded by singer Greg Sullo in the deserts of Mali and ends with the sound of children playing...

Jupiter One
If most bands build a reputation or long careers out of carving a musical niche, New York’s Jupiter One is brave to follow the road less travelled. In fact, versatility is their guide to delivering an element of surprise on every track. Offering proof is the group’s sophomore album, Sunshower, a...

Brooklyn Vegan / M For Montreal
I've been announcing individual bands on this party before now. Finally we have the full exciting lineup! You know M For Montreal as the Canadian festival we've visited for two years in a row. Their yearly festival showcases bands from their home city in their home city, and they take that show on the road each year to both CMJ in NYC and SXSW in Austin (we already announced their official 2010 night showcase). Being that we are such huge fans of so many Montreal bands, I thought it would be a great idea see if they wanted do a party together... and here we are. The lineup mixes some of our favorite Montreal bands with some or our other favorite Canadian (like Jason Collett of Broken Social Scene) and non-Canadian bands (like Andrew WK). We have 13 bands total, a DJ set by another band, free ice cream from the Ice Cream Man (some of which is vegan), free vegan food courtesy of Austin's own Daily Juice and other surprises (drink specials on this particular party are pending). We're also proud to announce that KEXP is the official radio sponsor of all BV day parties this year. You'll find them, video cameras in hand, at many of our day parties throughout the week including this one. Those in attendance at this show will also have a chance to check out and win a pair of Nudie Jeans (another one of our kind sponsors). Also unlike any other BV day party, this one is officially part of SXSW. That does NOT mean you need a badge. NO BADGES REQUIRED for this free show, but you will find the party listed on SXSW.com (and you can add it to your schedule on there). Wye Oak, Besnard Lakes, Think About LIfe, Holy Fuck, Voivod, Andrew WK (Solo), Roky Erickson w/ Okkervil River, Jason Collett, Beast, Duchess Says, Suckers, Plants & Animals, Local Natives

Although most bands struggle with distancing themselves from the seemingly infinite number of musicians who have come before, when Joan of Arc set about writing its new record the innovative group had only one past example to compete with: itself. “I think it’s harder for a band to make a tenth...

Japandroids (JPNDRDS) is a two piece band from Vancouver, BC. This 'band' started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intending to be a trio, the boys decided to forgo the logistical nightmare of having a 'lead singer' and do it...
