sxsw Okay friends, time for another SXSW 2015 Artist Highlight: Lust For Youth (Copenhagen, Denmark)

Lust For Youth combines dark and dance to create a new synth-pop experience, one that the band is bringing to SXSW 2015.

Hannes Norrvide started Lust For Youth while living in Sweden in 2009, but his first release under the name didn't come until 2012 on Sacred Bones Records. Since then, Lust For Youth has released an album every year. "International," the band's 2014 release, showcases synth-pop with the droning, gothic edge that dominated Norrvide's earlier work.

Next came lots of touring and with it lots of media buzz. NME, Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound among others have all featured Lust For Youth. Who knows what else this group will dish out by the time March 2015 rolls around.

sxsw Monday morning guys! Today's SXSW 2015 Highlight: The Ting Tings (Manchester, England)

Back in 2008, it was hard to go anywhere without hearing The Ting Tings' infectious debut single "That's Not My Name." Kate White's sassy vocals glided on top of Jules De Martino's thumping drums to create the classic pop hit. And then came the next one, "Shut Up and Let Me Go." The English duo are still at it today, having released their third album, "Super Critical," earlier this year. A departure from the energetic pop of their earlier work, White and De Martino take on a style more suited for the 1970s with this new record.

Though they're done touring for 2014, The Ting Tings will take on North America in January. Then, they'll come back again to take the stage at SXSW 2015 in March.

sxsw It's that time of morning y'all! SXSW 2015 Highlight: Jonathan Toubin (New York, NY)

Jonathan Toubin is bringing quite possibly the most fun dance party on Earth - New York Night Train's Soul Clap and Dance-Off - back for the 2015 SXSW Music Festival Official Closing Party.

Toubin uses his massive collection of soul 45s as "a weapon" against mediocre contemporary dance culture, utilizing only original vinyl, strategic pitching, sequencing and transitioning along the way. The DJ has made a full recovery after suffering 26 major injuries in a car accident while on a 2011 tour in Portland, OR, getting back into his groove as a regular fixture in New York's dance club scene.

Learn more at newyorknighttrain.com and sxsw.com/music - and see you at the closing party in March! #sxswmusic

sxsw SXSW 2015 Highlight coming at ya! Nikki Lane (Greenville, South Carolina)

Nikki Lane is as sassy as they come. The outlaw country singer's 2014 album "All or Nothin'" boasts honest songs with a special kind of twang in Lane's voice that lets everyone know she's not one to mess with. The Nashville-based singer performed on CONAN at the beginning of August and has been featured in publications such as Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine and The Washington Post. She hits the road with Trampled By Turtles this month to close out 2014.

sxsw An extra SXSW 2015 Highlight for y'all this week: JoyCut (Bologna, Italy)

JoyCut formed spontaneously in a rehearsal room back in 2004, and have been working hard over these last ten years to produce a dark-wave electronic sound that has been described as mesmerizing, conceptual and elegant. The trio has opened for bands like Modest Mouse and Arcade Fire while gaining traction in North America these past few years.
Another fun fact: JoyCut released their newest album, 2013's "PiecesOfUsWereLeftOnTheGround," with 100% recycled materials and have started recording their music in solar-powered studios. All of this is being done as part of their "Ghost Trees Forest" campaign promoting a sustainable future.

sxsw Morning! Check out today's SXSW 2015 Highlight: Rainy Milo (London, UK)

It's easy to keep up with the seamless blend of musical influences Rainy Milo puts on display in each one of her tracks. Her soft vocals float effortlessly over elements of jazz, hip-hop, R&B and pop, a powerful combination that has no doubt led to some attention from Complex and a performance at CMJ this past October.
