I started looking into some of the confirmed acts for 2019's upcoming SXSW, to see if anything really piqued my interest, and man, i cannot wait to see Japan's Otoboke Beaver. Hyper, frenetic female punk rock that just slaps you right in the face. It sounds like everything i'm going to need from 2019. The band released "Okoshiyasu!!" earlier this year, a collection of recordings from 2010-2015, and it's a loud and bouncy mission statement. Listen to album opener "Akimahenka" below, get the record here from Damnably, and if you're Austin in March, seek these girls out.
