Weeeeeeeeee! Today kicks off the South by Southwest Festival in Austin Texas and oh baby I wish I was there! But rather than pouting about it I thought I would profile a band a day from the SXSW Festival. So for the next 10 days I will bring you a little taste of SXSW Untitled style and next year WE are going people, I don’t care if we have to drive there we will be there and it will be glorious, start planning now.

The first band for this SXSW post fest is The Palaxy Tracks, Brandon Durham, Keith Grap, Brad Murph and Chuck Harling hail from Austin, TX. Their third full-length album, Twelve Rooms 2005 is definitely their most polished album to date. Their all-embracing emotive melodies are matched by Brandon Durham’s emotionally intense lyrics creating music that the listener can identify with and find pleasure in. In January 2007 The Palaxy Tracks released a special digital edition of Twelve Rooms, which you can find here. They will of course be a part of the South by Southwest Festival, playing at the Blender Balcony at The Ritz on March 14th.
