Solange is a rare kind of cool. Soulful and relaxed, eclectic and authentic. Her fascinating new album, made with producer Devon Hayes (Blood Orange), is an infectious dance record that pulses with youthful romance and heartbreak, incorporating influences from Motown to New Wave. Solange’s rising star will light up the streets of downtown Denton when she delivers what will surely be one of the most talked about and energetic performances of 35 Denton 2013.

Joining Solange in this year’s line-up: Indie-pop darlings Camera Obscura, returning to the U.S. from their native Glasgow for the first time in years. Their discography of brilliant, elegant pop records is loaded with enduring songs, some melancholy, some tinged with loneliness, all of them enchanting and catchy. Additionally, experimental Philly outfit Man Man will blow minds in March with their notoriously energetic live show. It’ll be a weird wild explosion of instrumentation and harmony. Man Man’s gonna get raucous, y’all.

The Cannabinoids featuring Sarah Jaffe. Seriously. Read that again. The Cannabinoids featuring Sarah Jaffe. Eight laptops. Three turntables. Six keyboards. Four drum machines. Theremin. The Cannabinoids make live, improvisational magic. And in March, that magic will include 100% more Sarah Jaffe, as Denton’s favorite songstress joins the The Cannabinoids on stage.

New York’s Com Truise will melt minds and capture hearts. With trippy retro synth and smooth beats, their music is the soundtrack to the most badass 80s movie never made. From the west coast comes Prurient, the solo noise project of influential, prolific, multi-talented artist Dominick Fernow.

Based in Los Angeles, Fade to Mind is a record label – and a movement. A collaborative front for music, visual art, video, and apparel, F2M breathes fresh air into dance and electronic music with artists like Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990, Prince William, and Kingdom. Fullerton, California’s Burger Records is bringing a veritable chunk of its vast roster to Denton in March. Get in on the hot rockin’ action with Summer Twins, Burnt Ones, White Fang, The Memories, Pangea, Colleen Green, and John Wesley Coleman.

BUT, WAIT. THERE’S MORE.

The industrial surfgaze of Toronto’s Odonis Odonis; The sexy stonegaze heaviness of recent Relapse signees True Widow; Indiana folk rockers Houndmouth; Seattle pop rockers Deep Sea Diver; Dustin Wong’s Baltimore-based blissful guitar ecstasy. From Portland, experimental pop trio Brainstorm; Denton’s own Video: real punks, ferocious rockers. And finally, straight outta Illinois, K. Flay, one of the finest indie hip-hop MCs in the land.

"Losing You" performed by Sarah Jaffe & Jeremy Buller for the 35 Denton Cover Series. Original track by 35 Denton headlining artist Solange, off her latest album True.
