SXSW Highlights


I've always wanted to be in Austin, Texas this time of year... Close to 1,700 bands come to play and showcase their sounds to labels, and the press.

I've been following NPR's All Songs Considered and NPR Bloggers, as they're doing a fabulous in-depth coverage of the festival.

They clued me in to two bands I'm enjoying:


If you like M. Ward, you'll enjoy his style, he's a bit more passionate...

And, on an entirely different note, I also really enjoy Sera Cahoone who's an acoustic/country singer. She's on Sub Pop records, and her voice is beautiful.

For more highlights and music suggestions, NPR's Music Blog is a great resource.
