t-minus two months until sxsw

it's only two months away! here's a few more artists to check out when you're in austin.

Ólöf Arnalds

any friend of Sigur Ros is a friend of mine. she plays a mix of Icelandic folk mixed with coffee house music. good stuff.

Azure Ray

together again! Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor, two great singer songwriters from Omaha are getting their old group back together. should be a beautiful set.


on one of the more mysterious labels right now Secretly Canadian Records, this should be an experimental and weird, but good time.

Kat Edmonson

a good mix of jazz and pop from the girl next door. she's from austin, so it could be a good turnout.

Deer Tick

good, raspy-voiced indie folk and alt-country type stuff. front man, John McCauley's got one of those voices that can capture you.


they are a danish group that sounds like Sigur Ros at times and Grizzly Bear at others. if these guys get to play in Second Presby Church venue it could be a special night.

Electric President

if this really happens i'll be so happy. their self-titled album from 2006 was awesome and then they disappeared. it's good mix of folk, pop and electronica; three magic words when used in the same sentence make me really happy. these guys were on the Morr label, every artist on this German label is amazing too.

  1. Hello mate

    I came across your blog through hype machine. Sorry this is a comment rather than an email but I couldn't find an email address to send stuff to. I wondered if you'd do me the favour of having a listen to our band. We're called Kick Up The Fire and we're based in London, many many miles away from Kansas City. Our myspace address is Let me know if you'd like me to send a press release and stuff by email. You canget in touch with me at
