SXSW Sunday Scoop

I realize, I chose a random little sample from the SXSW options. The options were MANY so I just narrowed it down to 5 + 1 for all of you to enjoy (or hate, or feel meh about). So here we go:

Teeth by “The Ettes”
This is a Nashville based Retro Rocker Trio. Two Thirds of this group are estrogen based which I love. Felt like Teeth had a little spagetti Western twang feel to it, I sort of dug it.
Track 1:

Up, Up, Up by Givers
This is a Louisiana Indie Pop Band. You gamers may have heard this song from the EA Sports FIFA 12 game. Catchy little tune, not my favorite.
Track 2:

I just might pray by The David Mayfield Parade
This big hipster bearded boy play a country-folk-bluegrass hybrid. Not usually my thing, I honestly threw it in for Ri, but I sort of dig this guy. If you can, watch the David Mayfield interview from NPR. The footage from his live shows is hilarious and engaging. I think this guy would be worth the ticket for admission.
Track 3:

Portraits by The Wheeler Brothers
These boys are from Austin, TX. Three of the five gents in this band are brothers. I wasn’t sure if I would like these guys but after a few listens to their mixture of rock, folk & blues I was a believer. Dare I say they remind me a bit of less screachy version of Kings of Leon?
Track 4:

The Tale of You and Me by Wild Child.
This indie group started out as a duo and now are a full band. Another one from the home of SXSW, Austin, Tx. These newbies were probably my favorite of the bunch.
Track 5:

Settle Down by Kimbra.
You may not have heard this song but I guarantee you know this voice. Kimbra is an Australian gal currently on  the airwaves singing “Somebody that I used to know” with Gotye. Kimbra is not everyone’s cup of tea but she seems to be growing on me.
