So SXSW (at least the part that matters) is just about a week away, and like many of you, I’m starting to pull my schedule together and get ready for a mini-marathon of day drinking.
As all of y’all from the colder parts of our nation dig out your short-sleeve shirts and cowboy boots for the trek to Austin, the weather is getting ready for you. Today was perfect SXSW weather – sunny, not to hot but not to cold. Beautiful.
Anytime the weather’s like this is begins to remind me of SXSWs-past, and all the fantastic acts I’ve gotten a chance to see there.
One of them is Victoria Christina Hesketh, aka UK electropop act Little Boots. I saw her at a packed day party back inside the old Emos back in 2009 and it was the best dance party I’ve ever been to at 2pm.
Now Little Boots is back with a new album, Nocturnes, coming out in May 5 via On Repeat. Check out “Motorways” off the upcoming album, then grab a free download via her website:
Listen for: the slow build at 3:18 – “we won’t look back / so don’t look back”
