SXSW 2013 Preview: Lips

I am incredibly excited to highlight Lips. This is one of my strongest recommendations of this series both because I'm completely in love with the cool, smokey, electro-80's grooves of Lips but also because I feel like this is a highly overlooked artist. Several of the bands I've highlighted so far are coming into SXSW with the backing of big labels, big management groups, and lots of attention from the press. This is not the case with Lips. Hailing from New Zealand, Stephanie Brown aka Lips won't be swinging through Austin many times in the near future and really isn't playing very often while she is here in town. It is for all of these reasons that I strongly implore you to make a point to catch one of her performances during SXSW. Also, if you are promoting SXSW artists as well, feel free to jump on the Lips train I won't hate on you. Recommended if you like, Oh, Land, Lykke Li or Kate Bush

It is hard to believe that you only get three shots at seeing Lips during SXSW but these are the times in which we live y'all. So, plan accordingly.
