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.
any friend of Sigur Ros is a friend of mine. she plays a mix of Icelandic folk mixed with coffee house music. good stuff.
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.
a good mix of jazz and pop from the girl next door. she's from austin, so it could be a good turnout.
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.
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.
