Garotas Suecas @ Beauty Bar Austin SXSW 2010 (more by Bryan Bruchman)
Garotas Suecas

Brazil's rocking, funky Garotas Suecas will be releasing their debut LP, Escaldante Banda, on September 7th on American Dust. They're supporting the record with a North American tour this September. That hits NYC twice: there's a September 22nd show at Knitting Factory with Brooklyn's Ava Luna and a September 24th gig at Cake Shop. The track above is a horn-laced, shuffling first-look at the LP.

Things are looking good for their tour - the Garotas gang seems to be paired with some of the best and brightest local acts at each city on the way (Grass Widow & Ty Segall in SanFran, Calvin Johnston in the Pacific Northwest, Kid Congo Powers in D.C., and Gaye Blades in Atlanta). A video and all tour dates are below...
