Death Valley Girls (photo: Estefany Gonzalez) Despite the title of Death Valley Girls' latest album Darkness Rains, the band's energetic live show was a beacon of light before Thanksgiving weekend. From the moment the drumbeat of "More Dead" started and the raspy opening guitar riffs bounced off the walls of the Rickshaw Stop, it felt as though a wave of white magic washed away the outside noise of corporate America.

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/SXSW_2015_Mix.mp3 Download: Mixtape: The Best New Bands from South by Southwest 2015 (Podcast #359) The early word on South by Southwest 2015 was that the music/technology/film conference and festival was scaling back this year, with a significant reduction in permitted events, fewer global mega-brands as sponsors, and less parties headlined by top mainstream acts. And while all of that was true, the week seemed to afford as many opportunities as ever to see a wide variety of emerging indie talent from around the world.
