Austin playlist, pt. 2

Here’s the next installment. Bands to watch – and to watch out for – at SXSW.

L’Altra, a Chicago duo that has been “quietly making music for [over] a decade,” but has managed to hold onto an organic and natural sound over the years.

“Nothing Can Tear It Apart” by L’Altra:

Lanterns on the Lake, a British group that combines stark cinematic soundscapes with heart.

“Lungs Quicken” by Lanterns on the Lake:

Iroquois Falls, a mysterious artist who is flying so far under-the-radar that I can’t even locate any information about her – the town in Canada keeps coming up instead. ( play count: 48.)

“Gaspe” by Iroquois Falls:

Love Inks. By all counts, the song below should be totally annoying… and yet I couldn’t stop playing it.

“Blackeye” by Love Inks:

A Lull, a fun and intriguing experimental group from Chicago.

"He considered music a liberating force: it liberated him from loneliness, introversion, the dust of the library; it opened the door of his body and allowed his soul to step out into the world to make friends."

- Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being
