For a change of pace in 2014, we decided to take a little time and to ponder on who our favorite acts at SXSW were. Generally, we run this piece no later than two days after the festival. This time, we wanted to truly ponder on how the acts we saw at this year’s festival measured up. For those keeping score, in 2013 we picked Haim as Best New Artist. In 2012 it was Santigold. In 2011 it was Odd Future. The Sleepy Sun took top honors in 2010. And going all the way back to 2009 Akron/Family were the knockdown favorite. Without further delay, here are the Top 5 Best New Artists and Top 5 Best Established Artists of SXSW 2014. Read more…

Safe to say, 2014 has been pretty good to the Sleigh Bells so far. They’ve played numerous festivals where they thrilled audiences, and the duo seem to be building up steam as they go, with no signs of stopping. And now, they’ve released the dates for the upcoming summer tour.

The first thing that greeted me when picking up credentials for 2014’s incarnate of the Buku Music + Arts Project was perhaps the longest contest winner and guess pass line I’d ever come across. Two friends were at its mercy while some system or other rebooted, a testament to the sheer overload of interest this year. Upon entering the gates, getting my lay of the land, and heading to an overstuffed photo pit for Nas, my cell signal plummeted to the depths of practically unusable, and any hopes of truly instant Instagrams diminished. Buku had officially become a larger festival.
Do you ever have an experience where you’re truly at a loss for words? Where the accumulation of events leaves you a little shy of utterly speechless? This can happen at South by Southwest. In fact, annually, it pretty much does happen. Today, day 3 of the festival was more or less ridiculous. An off-the-charts amalgamation of top-notch talent from every corner of the music map. From the highest profile mega stars, to forward-thinking next generation innovators, this is why the eyes of the world are literally on Austin and this festival every year.
Red Bull Sound Select has announced the lineup for Day 3 of their 4 day Sound Select concert series for SXSW 2014! For those unfamiliar, the Sound Select series helps developing artists make their way into the big leagues with professional level tools, analytics, and events like these, which pair great emerging artists with known names to help them gain visibility.
