SXSW Five – January 22, 2013

Making some progress but still a lot of bands to listen to!  Here’s my latest five bands worth checking out:

1) Mac DeMarco – indie singer/songwriter, apparently already known to Pitchfork and the like.  Really good voice and songs are well put together.

2) Fredda – French female vocalist.  I don’t speak a lick of French but really dig her voice and vibe.

3) Jenn Grant – Canadian singer/songwriter (DeMarco also from Canada, apparently something’s in the water up there these days), reminded me of Feist.

4) Hashback Hashish – Electronic music from India.  Danceable music with Eastern sounds and dub influences.

5) Heidi Happy – Swiss female singer.  The name fits here, really pleasant music and a bit of a Joanna Newsome influence.

Here’s a Fredda song (a little less loungy than the stuff I heard from her):
