Seriously, I think Zella Day is the artist I am most excited to see at SXSW this year. I Freaking love her. I listen to her a little bit obsessively and I’ve learned her songs on the ukulele and I sing them really loud in my apartment to my dog. Sorry neighbors (but not really). I know I have posted about her before, but in the wake of SXSW, she is due another post. ALL THE POSTS!
I wasn’t sure how I felt about Alex Winston when I first watched her most recent video (not the one shown below). It’s super distracting and I don’t think it does any favors for her. Upon further investigation and listening, I totally dig her though, especially her acoustic recordings, which I imagine will be how she performs at SXSW?

Take a minute each day to put aside work and responsibility and let go and dance! Today’s one minute dance party brought to you by “Dreaming” by Smallpools. Love this group!
Perhaps I am biased to the name of this band, or the fact that one of the girls is often wielding a fiddle (which we all know is the fastest way to my heart), but The Accidentals is a duo certainly worth checking out at SXSW this year. I mean, the tagline on their site reads, “Two girls, three years, two albums, two movies scored, thirteen instruments, fifty original songs, seven hundred live shows, thousands of fans…just graduated high school!” I kind of want to meet them to find out how to garner some of that kind of talent and energy for myself! They remind me of Mountain Man, but a little less etherial.
