Artist of the day: Hundred Waters




Skrillex is at the top of the American EDM movement. So he could have signed just about anyone he wanted for his OWSLA label.

So it's a little surprising that he signed a Gainesville indie-folk act, Hundred Waters.

The five-piece group plays an atmospheric blend of folk melodies, ethereal harmonies and enough electro-pop elements to make you realize what ol' Sonny saw in them. The group's self-titled LP will appeal to fans of The Postal Service, Bjork, Animal Collective, Frou Frou and Tycho, among others.

On Thursday night, you can see Hundred Waters and another buzzworthy Florida electronic act, XXYYXX, at the Orpheum in Ybor City. Tickets are $11. Click here.
