New South By Southwest Challenger: Chatmonchy

Will you happen to be deep in the heart of Texas next year for South By Southwest? I hate you, first off, but secondly there is yet another Japanese band for you to hunt down in Austin – Chatmonchy. That huge banner blocking the MySpace player controls tells you everything you need to know. I’m currently hooked on the trio’s “Shangri-La,” a tune nicely bridging the gap between dancepunk and indie-pop. Just check that feel-good drumbeat!

You can also direct a video for them if you wish for it hard enough/get lucky.
