SUNDAY BEST ARE SO EXCITED ANNOUNCE OUR OFFICIAL SXSW SHOWCASE
Sunday Best are thrilled to announce news of their Official SXSW 2017 Showcase that will take place on Friday, March 17th at Valhalla from 8:00 p.m. on. The lineup, highlighting esteemed Sunday Best artists and more, will feature: Alice Jemima, Laucan, L.A. Salami, Mary Epworth, Reeps One, and DJ Yoda.
In our fifteenth year of operations, Sunday Best have developed into a leading UK-based independent record label, sister to the award-winning Bestival festivals founded by Rob da Bank and home to artists including the film director David Lynch and Kitty, Daisy & Lewis. We feel we have a keen sense for burgeoning talent and from the saccharine electro-pop of Alice Jemima to the ethereal folk of Laucan, the showcase promises to highlight the label’s diverse musical ethos through a grouping of outstanding breakout artists.
“An undeniably powerful narrative” – NYLON
Following the viral success of her cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”, English singer Alice Jemima is preparing to release her sultry, xx-invoking, self-titled debut full-length, out March 3rd.
“Dreamy falsetto seems to echo past heartbreaks” –NOWNESS
Laucan’s understated soundscapes and resonant falsetto provide the framework for music that’s both intimately emotional and undeniably human. His debut EP Up Tomorrow is due out 3/1.
“One of this year’s best debuts” – Bob Boilen, NPR
L.A. Salami’s recently debuted LP Dancing With Bad Grammar received international acclaim, fusing eloquent poetics with fierce energy in a manner that’s both singular in style and powerful in delivery.
“Psych pop splendour… Experimentalism, melody and narrative co-existing in appealing balance.” -Q
Blurring the lines of psych, folk and dream-pop, Mary Epworth creates music that’s intelligent and wildly inventive. Announcements of new music are forthcoming.
In recent years Reeps One has utterly transformed the realm of beat boxing to forge a style of music that is truly his own, delivering performances that are unforgettable and technically astounding.
Award-winning, multifaceted producer and turntable extraordinaire DJ Yoda has recently seen viral acclaim for his outstanding “Stranger Things Mix”. Having collaborated with everyone from Mark Ronson to Banksy to Dr. Dre, he’s established boundless respect and following through his inventive, boundary-pushing approach.
