Earlier this year, Drowse released their very good new album Cold Air on The Flenser. Primarily the project of Kyle Bates, the album also featured several contributions from Maya Stoner and sort of sounds like My Bloody Valentine meets The Microphones. Maya and Kyle also play together in Floating Room, but Maya fronts this band...
The first single/first proper song on the album, ”Quickening,” is some pretty well-executed My Bloody Valentine worship, but don't let that make you peg Drowse as just another shoegaze band.

Among the just-announced acts are Andrew WK, Basement, Boy Harsher, The Dwarves, Moon King, Mothers, Palm, Porches, Pure Bathing Culture, Shame, and Tancred. SXSW Music Festival happens March 12 - 18 in Austin, TX.
