SXSW Music Highlights Pt. II

Still absorbing the excellent music I heard in Austin last week, some of it expected — if not long-awaited, but much of it newly discovered. Here are some cuts from some of my surprisingly awesome discoveries (new to me, at least) at SXSW.

The Ruby Suns – Tane Mahuta
Spindrift – Beauty
album coverThe Builders and the Butchers – Black Dresses

Clicking on the band name and/or album cover will lead you to an opportunity to purchase the tracks/album.
