So either you will hate me or you will like me for this. They put out a 2nd SXSW 2011 torrent, this time with about 300+ songs. I found about 25-30 I really liked and decided I should present though to you. Here’s artists that start with A-C.
AgesandAges are a folk rock band who have this great way to harmonize their vocals sounding a bit retro while having instrumentals and a style that is modern.
AgesandAges – No Nostalgia
Fairly simple yet so catchy with this pop/rock song, The American Secrets are a band that I could easily smile to. Remind me slightly of indie band Spoon or Counting Crows with much different vocals.
The American Secrets – Mr. Cloud
Andy Grammer is another one of those pop/soul singers that you can just tell is going to break out. Reminds me of Jason Mraz but with his own unique style that consists with a bit of Train’s vocals. You can’t dislike how positive this song is!
Andy Grammer – Keep Your Head Up
The Black Cloud Collective are a bit raw but they got a such a catchy chorus and have a sound that KROQ would just eat up with their emo/alternative rock crowd they draw.
The Black Cloud Collective – Hail Mary!
Now for some fun with “Baby Rain” by Brite Futures. Indie ElectroPop with a flavor of some upbeat dance melodies to it. 5-star!
Brite Futures – Baby Rain
BRONCHO is one a punk rock band from Oklahoma. I don’t understand the lyrics so much in “Try Me Out Sometime” but I love the instrumentals, the lyrics are catchy and overall I would try to start some extreme sport like skateboarding, surfing or snowboarding while listening to this song.
BRONCHO – Try Me Out Sometime
Ending the post with an acoustic song from Cas Haley who has a unique singer/songwriter sound that you can listen to on a Sunday and forgot for a little while that you don’t have to go back to work the next day.
Cas Haley – Better
Sorry for no hip-hop in this post, I promise at least one hip-hop song for artists in D-M. You can DM me your feelings about this post if your not satisfied.
