Small Font Big Future gives you a low-down on smaller artists you should definitely take the time to see when you’re stage hopping at the next festival.


Sound on Sound Fest is getting close, people! Texas lucked out with such a killer three-day lineup, stacked with oddities galore. It’s always hard to figure out who to check out without listening to every artist on the lineup, so we made you a guide on who to see next month at SOS.

Friday

Austra

Toronto indie synth-pop and dreamy electronica music project into political activism? Yup, that’s a must-see.

Honey Soundsystem

Flamboyant electronic disco, dance, and house DJ collective based in San Francisco that will keep you dancing throughout their entire set.

Sorority Noise

This is a indie/punk rock band from Connecticut. Pitchfork describes their last album as “a rafter-reaching emo record about the raw stages of grief and loneliness.”

Saturday

Yelle

Yelle is hardly a ‘small font,’ but they deserve a spotlight anyways. They’re a French electropop band that have infectious beat and songs you’ll love to sing along to (even if you don’t know French).

Wolves in the Throne Room

Hellloooo, black metal. NPR describes them as “[painting] between the lines of barbaric and regal.” Stick around to embrace the darkness.

Sunday

Boris

Boris has diehard fans. They don’t need to be convinced to come to this set. This Japanese trio specializes in experimental metal.

Girlpool

Folk-punk band that went from a duo to a trio quite recently by adding a drummer.

Mannequin Pussy

Mannequin Pussy is heavy, fast, and chaotic punk. They get you going and leave you wanting more.
