SXSW 2011 hangover continues with artists D-P… Dip-Set?

First we got Dexter Freebish who sounds like a heterosexual version of “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham or if Wham had children it would be Dexter Freebish producing catchy fun ElectroPop.

Dexter Freebish – Wide Awake

With Holger, we don’t quite understand anything they are singing in this song but isn’t it just so interesting with the wonderful build-up through the catchy instrumentals and then lyrics that I assume might be about a “Beaver”, the title of the song.
Holger – Beaver
One of the better under 2 minute rock songs is “Wristwatch” by Hungry Kids of Hungary. If they are from Hungary, I wonder if people ask if they can donate to their cause. Either way these guys sound a lot like some of the best Vampire Weekend songs and I look forward to more from this indie rock band.
Hungry Kids of Hungary – Wristwatch
Just because the song doesn’t have complete English in it and has some Spanish rap, I’m digging the upbeat instrumentals, the boom boom boom lyrics, and how danceable this song is.
Johanan (Don Yojan & La Frescura) – Exagerao
Now if your reading this post on Saturday and overall the day/night ain’t going so well then listen to “Saturday Let Me Down Again” by Muck and the Mires. This is a song that won’t make you feel better listening to on a Sunday but maybe listen to it on a Friday to give yourself low expectations for Saturday.
Muck and the Mires – Saturday Let Me Down Again
Prima Donna have that old school punk rock sound. You can dance to it, bob your head to it, I can dig it!
Prima Doll – Stray Doll
