SXSW Awards – 2017

How is it possible we’re already through SXSW hangover week? It seems like only yesterday the ATH crew was hanging at Hotel Vegas, with Lone Star in hand, kicking off the week a couple of Sundays ago with the awesome lineup put together by Nathan and our boy Mr. Laird. As always, we move on, reflect on the fun behind us, and plan for the next great lineup or festival. Such is the beauty of living in the live music capital of the world. To look back on the festival, Nathan, Brian, and myself came up with an arbitrary list of awards with each of us picking our choice for the category.

Hit the jump for our awards, final thoughts and a few related pics from a fun, exciting, and draining week.

Dangerous Tune from Youth Code

youthAt first, I loved this song. Then I hated it. Then I figured, why the fuck not post it and let you decide? I love the anger that’s unleashed on the listener, reminiscent of early industrial acts, then melding it with post-hardcore acts of the late 90s.  It’s an interesting composition, frightening at moments, then thrilling at other instants. Youth Code have composed four new tracks, of which this is one, and then the flip-side of this new EP has remixes by the likes of Clipping. You can grab the A Place to Stand EP from the band on September 23rd from Dais Records.
