One of the things I love most about SXSW is the opportunity it provides every year to discover great new artists. The following mix reflects some of the bands and musicians I’ve added to my “watch list” as a result of SXSW 2012. Enjoy!
Here’s the last of them…
24. The Chevin – “Champion”
Love these guys! They also put on a great live show. A band to watch for sure…
25. Rosi Golan – “Paper Tiger”
I first saw Rosi Golan open for Wakey! Wakey! via a webstream. I really wanted to see her in person at SXSW, but she is just another one that got away. Next time, I suppose.
26. Nathaniel Rateliff – “Early Spring Till”
I caught some of Nathaniel Rateliff’s set at Maggie Mae’s Rooftop…it was the calm in an otherwise chaotic evening of crazy venue hopping. Nathaniel is the kind of musician who forces you to stop and be in the moment when he performs and for that, especially at SXSW, I am forever grateful. Nathaniel is back in LA April 18th at The Troubadour as part of The Revival Tour with Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Cory Branan, and Tommy Gabel (Against Me!).
Listen! Learn! Love!
