Coeds is an almost-brand-new electropop duo who graced the unofficial DC Against The World SXSW party with their very first show, which we are presenting here. The duo, consisting of Merideth Muñoz and Ryan Kailath, are geographically split between Austinite Meredeth and New Yorker Ryan. Even shunted into the relatively tight space in the front of the venue with a similarly humble sound system, the band’s knack for delivering hooks came through loud and clear. If you read this interview with Muñoz, you get a sense of what this band is about — putting their audience first, and doing whatever it takes to make that audience have fun. That’s exactly what made this first show, and first SXSW for the band, something worth seeing, and what I expect will serve Coeds well in the rest of their career.
This set was recorded with a minimal setup, DPA 4061 microphones mounted in front of one of the speakers on the “stage”. While the sound gives a decent impression of the sound of the event, please note that any limitations are the result of the technology being used, and not the skill of the band. We think that, this being the band’s first show, it is a moment worth documenting despite the reduced sound quality. Enjoy!
