Mix: An Hour at SxSW


At the Spotify House

This is some of the music I had playing in my headphones at SxSW. It’s a subset of Matthew Averkamp’s extensive SxSW 2012 Picks on Spotify, which had a good blend of bands I already loved and ones that were new to me. If you only have a few minutes, be sure to check out Daughter and Dry the River.

What have you been listening to lately? Let us know in comments.

    My favorite SXSW performances this year were Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, and Kimbra. When I’m not stuck on those bands I’ve been listening to Little Dragon and Zola Jesus.

  • Maggie Mason Says:

    @Emily We have similar tastes. I’m going to see the Lumineers tomorrow night, excited.

  • Amber Says:

    Great list! I’ve been listening to Bastille’s “Flaws” over and over and over again, and it still hasn’t gotten old.
