This offering from Catfish Haven is worth embedding.
These cats sho' know how to groove.

All of these artists are playing the South by Southwest festival this week... If you're lucky to be in or around Austin, TX, well, you're a helluva lot closer than me to seeing any of these great bands.

Excellent playlist. I (stupidly, stupidly, stupidly) missed both Jim White and Ron Sexsmith over the last few months.

What do you think of Apples in Stereo? Keep meaning to check them out ...

Hey Beth, don't beat yourself up. We simply can't see everything can we? I've tried and I just lost a lot of sleep over it.

I'm really enjoying the Apples in Stereo. I only have their latest release. The song featured here is super-contagious, and demands the listener to repeat.

thanks for stopping by!

I really enjoyed some of these tunes and you can tell a bunch of them deserve long musical (and regular) lives and more exposure after the festival. Thanks!

bigshoulders said...

Thanks, Dale, and you're welcome!
Yeah, I wish I could have been IN Austin, supporting them first-hand!

Have you heard of the NxNE (north by northeast) festival in CAN?

Dale said...

Yes indeed. It's a big deal here. Loads and loads of talent.
