During our recent trip to SXSW, Tim Williams, of the LA-based band Soft Swells, dropped by our apartment pool after their performance at the Modern Outsider Showcase at Parish Underground to record a Powerhouse Factories Live session.

Soft Swells, named after the smaller, smoother waves Tim Williams looks for when he is surfing, is an upbeat poppy take on indie music. For the session, Tim played a stripped down version of Every Little Thing off their 2012 self-titled LP.
