So, here is my quick take on bands I saw at SXSW (South by Southwest) this year that seemed to rise above the thousands of other bands. Now, obviously I did not see every band there, who can? I did see a lot, but I would recommend surfing the net for other music blogs and sites and see what their feedback was on the bests artist at SXSW. You however are on my site now, so you get my picks. =)
- Francis – Fantastic band from Sweden. This is one band that you can believe it when you hear that they are so unique and original. Truly hard to classify. They have a great sound and an amazing live performance. The singer, Petra, is so dynamic and you can’t take your eyes off her cause you want to see what she will do next. Great performer and singer. I really can’t describe their music. It has elements of rock, pop, old school country, and classic top 40 as far back as the 50′s. Listen to them now….and be sure to catch them when live whenever you get the chance. They are a must see! The live experience is even better than the CD.
- Fighting With Wire – Well I won’t be redundant here. Check out what I said about these guys as MyndJack Artist of the week. Click Here.
- The Boxer Rebellion – How these guys aren’t signed yet I don’t know. Again though, check out what I had to say about them as Artists of the week. Click Here
