Usually around this time of the week, we highlight a couple of new acts from around the globe who’ve caught our attention (you can check out all selections to date here). We just spent the last week in Austin, Texas running around like a blue-arsed fly at SXSW 2016 in order to write this fine piece about the 20 best acts we saw at this year’s festival. You’ll find links below to all of the acts mentioned in the piece and some tunes too.
