New Music! SXSW Artist Releases – September 2018

August 30, 2017
September promises to be a big month for new music with tons of LPs slated to come out, and plenty of releases from SXSW Showcasing Artists. Each week we will be updating this page to include the newest releases for you so that you can find your new favorite musical artist.
We’re ringing in the month in style with 10 new releases from SXSW Showcasing Artists on September 1, many of which will come from veteran artists. New-wave band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark return with The Punishment of Luxury, post-rockers Mogwai release Every Country’s Sun, indie-favorites The Pains of Being Pure at Heart drop The Echo Of Pleasure, and British rockers Motörhead release Under Cover.
After taking a look at the weekly releases, we pick one new album and make a playlist for fans incorporating new music from past SXSW Showcasing Artists for them to discover. This week, we’re riffing on a dance-rock playlist inspired by LCD Soundsystem whose new album American Dream is getting released this Friday. Check it out because these playlists will only be active for seven days before we pick a new artist to focus on. Keep up with our playlists on the official SXSW Spotify channel, and be sure to follow the playlist.
