I am starting to feel like I deserve to have someone pay me to go to SXSW since I am doing a most thorough look into all the bands coming this year. A girl can dream right?! There are points where the bands start to sound the same but as I have now made it up to the end of F, there were a couple that made their musical mark on my ears.
Clock Opera – watch out Coldplay, there’s a new band in town.
Although he is listed as a Nashville artist, Cory Branan was a staple of the Memphis music scene for some time. His songs are more like modern southern gothic short stories with melodies sure to keep you humming long after the song ends.
The super groovy Diplomats of Solid Sound hail from Iowa…? Certainly a testament that good music can spring from anywhere. 60’s inspired with a big sound – this is sure to be the perfect soundtrack to your next Mad Men watching party.
