Sounds of SXSW 2015 #7: Xu Xu Fang

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

Xu Xu Fang makes the kind of music that might just end up causing shipwrecks. Much like the sirens of mythology hung out on the rocks, Xu Xu Fang lurks with dangerous bewitchery. It's a little bit badass, and more than a little tempting. Sure to be/sure ought to be an industry favorite down there in ATX.
