SXSW Hype Machine's Hype Hotel - Austin, TX - 03/1414

On the Friday night (3/14) of SXSW, Hype Hotel hosted a dancey show with UK producer Tourist, TDE-signed R&B singer SZA, enigmatic UK funk collective Jungle, German producer Tensnake, and the once-milkshakin', now "indie" Kelis. There was an hour long wait for Kelis, like there was a day earlier at Clive Bar, but this time it was apparently because Cyril Hahn was supposed to play beforehand but cancelled his set. Pictures of the show are in this post, and they continue below...

Bronze Whale

Austin synth duo Bronze Whale recently put out their first track of 2014, a remix of Marshall Lewis' "Chapters." The original is a polished folk song, and hardly a trace of it remains on Bronze Whale's edit, which toys with the vocals, adds in glitchy beats, and eventually erupts into a full-on dancefloor banger. Check it out below.

Bronze Whale will team up with two fellow Austin artists, gothy synth crew S U R V I V E and many-member chamber pop collective Mother Falcon, for the BrooklynVegan/BV Austin-curated portion of the Flatstock stage inside the Austin Convention Center during SXSW on Saturday, March 15 from 4 PM - 6 PM. Click those artist links to add their sets at the Flatstock stage to your SXSW schedule. Browse all Flatstock stage lineups here.
