The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger Added To SXSW Showcase

Brooklyn labels Northern Spy and Ba Da Bing are teaming up on an official SXSW showcase on Friday March 14 at Palm Door on Sabine St. Newly announced on the line-up is Sean Lennon’s Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger who release their new album, Midnight Sun, on April 29 on Chimera Music.

The Ba Da Bing and Northern Spy Showcase features a new generation of musicians emerging as the genre defining artists of psych, avant garde and experimental. No showcase can boast such an eclectic group of artists, for each band is singular in their approach and belong to a genre unto themselves. Oscillate to the dark-folk drone of Cross Record, trip balls to the psyched out grooves of Cloud Becomes Your Hand and NYMPH, get a pit started during the chaotic early grunge of Slothrust and shake your friggin ass to the saxophone pop of DVA. They’ve got it all and they’ll be partying indoors and on their backyard deck.

Check out Ba Da Bing and Northern Spy bands speak about their SXSW dreams in the showcase trailer below:

Slothrust Announce SXSW Tour And Reveal New Track, 7.30AM

On March 3, Slothrust will embark on their album release tour as they make their way to SXSW. Along the way, they’ll share the stage with Perfect Pussy and fellow Brooklynites, Fletcher C. Johnson and Hector’s Pets. The band will be making their official SXSW appearance at the Ba Da Bing & Northern Spy’s Official Showcase at The Palm Door with Cloud Becomes Your Hand. Before leaving Austin they’ll play the Impose Magazine, She Shreds Magazine and Rethink Pop showcases with Big Ups, Future Islands, White Mystery and Potty Mouth. Then, the trio will bring their early-grunge-infused rock throughout the Midwest on the way home.

On top of this exciting news, Slothrust have also recently revealed their second single, 7:30 AM, from their newly released full-length, Of Course You Do. Their first single Crockpot spoke of alienation and exploring fears but 7:30 AM puts all those feelings in a bag and tosses them away. They are taking a stand, they are bold, they are proud and they are loud. 7:30 AM oscillates between deceptively sweet twanging guitar and over-driven, punch-you-in-the-face ‘tude.

The music video for 7:30 AM was released in collaboration with Laurel Parmet last spring in preparation for their new album. If you’re curious to find out more about this band’s personality, check out the video. They wouldn’t make the best house guests.
