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!
1. Of Monsters and Men – “Little Talks”
There is a reason why this group from Iceland is selling out venues around the country. I mean, how catchy is this song?
2. The Good Natured – “Skeleton”
Actually caught this band at SXSW last year, but I don’t think I remembered that until I was going through this year’s artist list and I recalled how much I enjoyed this group and this song
3. Avalanche City – “Love love love”
Everytime I hear this song, I smile
4. The Apache Relay– “Home is Not Places”
“Home is not places, it is love” what more needs to be said?
Listen! Learn! Love!
