Our SXSW 2011 hangover continues with several great songs from artists that start with the letter’s R-T.
First let’s start off with a funny alternative hip-hop song by Rob Cantrell. I don’t know much about this rapper although I think if this is his side job while doing something else, then he’s the man! I love the beginning lines to this song, listen closely.
Rob Cantrell – Coffee and Weed
Next we put on our pumped up kicks for Slam Donahue with “Where Were We On The Weekend”. I could see this indie band easily making a hit with similar popularity of “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People. 5-star!
Slam Donahue – Where Were We On The Weekend
Sunbears! have a great instrumental build-up to the vocals which are solid but I’m mostly a fan of the instrumentals that build a real good song.
Sunbears! – Little Baby Pines
Next for some rap from Tedashii with “Bury Me”. Look him up, he’s got an interesting flow and background.
Tedashii – Bury Me
Los Angeles Alternative rockers The Tender Box have an interesting solid upbeat sound. Also interesting because all members are of Mexican American descent and they performed the theme song to this Spiderman animated series on television.
The Tender Box – Signs of Fire
Lastly we got These United States with “I Want You To Keep Everything” which has the chill road trip kind of sound. It’s not the song you and your friends are jamming to the whole road trip but an essential piece to open up your trip.
