SXSW has just released another list of 100+ bands that will be playing this year’s fest. Standouts at first glance include Blaqstarr, Crystal Stilts, Kid Sister, 8Ball & MJG, Amanda Blank, Explosions in the Sky, Killer Mike, St. Vincent, Peter Bjorn and John, Dead Prez (!), and a few others.

Some news on the highly anticipated Girls debut full-length, via the band’s myspace page:

“The album is oh so close guys and girls. The wonderful press we have received as well as kudos from fans has been amazing…The future is very exciting…this album is a great album its honest, loose, ethereal, obnoxious and perfect. We cant wait for you to hear it.”

Looking forward to seeing these guys at SXSW based on this clip from the French Riviera‘s MIDI Fest; hopefully this new jam makes the cut for the LP:
