Of the top 40 things we saw at SXSW 2014, British psych-rock trio the Wytches were number nine. There's just something about a group of young kids with a reckless abandon for short-hair conventions and a love for shredding guitars that does it for us every time. In a showcase for Sailor Jerry rum last week in Austin, the band tore through a number of tracks from their forthcoming debut, out this May on Partisan. Here they play "Digsaw," a dark and raw track that finds lead guitarist Kristian Bell screaming about being selfish in a manner that would surely make Frank Black proud. We've previously been gifted with a stream of the Sabbath-surf crusher "Wire Frame Mattress" and a creepy video for the sludgy "Gravedweller."
