I figured we must not dwell on the fact that we are not partaking in any of the festivities happening in Austin, TX. We can listen to some great music from bands who are partaking in Texas festivals but there is more to music then just SXSW, I know it is hard to believe but there are bands releasing fantastic albums as we speak that are not participating in any Texas festivals and why should they be left out? They shouldn’t and they won’t! ;-) Sorry got a little carried away there…

Mouthful of Bees are just divine! A fantastic indie-rock debut from this Minneapolis foursome. Afternoon Records picked up this rock-n-roll clan, the same label who also released the lovely Ms. Haley Bonar’s, Lure The Fox
Currently the Mouthful of Bees are playing a handful of shows in Minneapolis but keep checking back I think this band is just getting started.

The A-Sides are another great indie-rock band from the oh so fabulous city that is Philly. Their new album Silver Storms should be released any day now…Sorry can’t really say when as they are currently shopping for a label. But they are tearing it up in Austin, TX their first show is at the Mohawk (SXSW) on the 14th, which is tomorrow. Listen to a track off their forthcoming album Silver Storms
