sxsw Morning, morning! SXSW 2015 Highlight: Wild Child (Austin TX)

Austin darlings Wild Child are making a buzz. Just last week the indie-folk group released a music video for "Living Tree" which featured more than 3,000 photos posted by fans on social media, adding to the excitement of the band hitting the road this month. Wild Child, which recently won the attention of the Boston Globe, is hitting nearly every corner of the country on its winter tour. They will wrap up the coast-to-coast travel shortly before they take the stage at SXSW 2015 in March.

sxsw Monday morning SXSW 2015 Highlight y'all! Bishop Nehru (New York NY)

Bishop Nehru is poised for a breakout year in 2015. The 18-year-old rapper already boasts an impressive résumé featuring collaborations with MF Doom, Madlib and Disclosure. It doesn't end there: he opened up for Wu-Tang Clan on the European leg of their 20th Anniversary Tour in 2013 and signed to Nas' Mass Appeal label last year.

The rapper is influenced by more than just hip-hop, showcasing elements of neo-soul, jazz, R&B and synth-pop in his tracks. Bishop's recently released self-produced track ""Breath"" pairs this wide range of musical influences with his open, honest and artistic style.

sxsw Alright, alright, alright! Today's SXSW 2015 Highlight is... Weyes Blood (New York, NY)

Natalie Mering a.k.a. Weyes Blood produces a hypnotizing combination of folk, country and psychedelic elements unlike anything you've probably ever heard. Prior to her work on Weyes Blood, Mering spent time as a touring member of Jackie-O Motherfucker. She also contributed vocals to the Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti album "Mature Themes" right around the time her debut album was released in 2011.

After spending a ton of time on the road, Mering returned with a great second Weyes Blood album (titled "The Innocents") this past October. She'll be performing all over North America and Europe before returning to Austin for SXSW 2015.

sxsw Hi, hi! Our first SXSW 2015 Highlight of the new year is: The Dodos (San Francisco, CA)

Put these guys on your list for SXSW 2015. The Dodos were initially known simply by the name of "Dodobird" when multi-instrumentalist Meric Long created the project back in 2006. The addition of Logan Kroeber's experimental drumming and progressive metal influences completed the indie rock duo.

The Dodos are set up a for a big year. They will release their second studio album on Polyvinyl (titled "Individ") later this month, and will embark on a North American tour in February that will culminate at SXSW.

Check 'em out at dodosmusic.net and sxsw.com/music! #sxswmusic

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.
