Some more SXSW selections...
I'm probably about a 10th of the way through these... no rhyme or reason to this, just the cream of the crop.
"I Knew" - 22-Pistepirkko. It has a gong in it and guitar played like bouzoki. What more do you need?
"Drove Through Ghosts To Get Here" - 65daysofstatic. A descriptive title for this ghostly electronica instrumental.
"Mystic Song" - The Berg San Nipple. French Indie-tronica in the Album Leaf - +/- style.
"Throw It Away" - The Pink Reason (photo via band myspace) Not reverb-drenched. Reverb-waterlogged. The kind of really awful good stuff that only works in lo-fi. I wasn't surprised to read after this made my hit list that the band has a 7" out via Siltbreeze.
"Wake Up Heroes" - Sally Crewe and The Sudden Moves. They sound like early Elvis Costello and The Attractions in this 1:19 chartbuster but she's got way better lines such as "If this car had a backseat, we'd be in it" - something I'm sure Ed Begley regrets about his electric car.
