SXSW 2012: Something old, Something New, Something Australian

The quest for good new music amongst the artists being showcased ar SXSW 2012 continues. I am nearing the end of list but there is still plenty of good music left.

Oh Mercy  – Australia Seamed like a good idea

Paul Collins & Peter Case of the very influencial The Nerves as well as The Plimsouls are on the roster. This Nerves songs is one of my all time favorite power pop tunes. I heard this for the first time many moons ago on a top-notch collection of American Power Pop –  D.I.Y.: Come Out And Play – American Power Pop (1975-78)

 Ringo Deathstar – These guys made it onto my favorites of 2011 and they are bound to make even  more fans in Austin where they originally hail from.
