SXSW 2013: 20 Must-See Acts

Make room in your schedule, between the beer and barbecue, for these bands

There are plenty of stories about bands that handed demos to established musicians, but far fewer tales of it actually leading anywhere. It worked for Foxygen, though: soon after the New York City/Olympia, Washington, duo gave a CD-R to indie musician and producer Richard Swift (who's currently in the Shins), they were in Swift's studio recording their full-length debut, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. It's an absorbing collection of psychedelic rock full of hazy vocals on songs that shift and morph seemingly without effort.
