SWSW 2009 - Post Six: Everyday Visuals, Shiny Toy Guns, Heavenly States, Pretty & Nice, Clutters, Lazywall, We Were Lovers, My Sad Captains

(Band might cause problems this go-around.)

So, the big week's here, and so are we: South by Southwest, aka SXSW. For a shut-in such as moi, the main joyride is the cornucopia of songs the festival makes available at its splendid website. As some of you might have noticed, we've already posted a few of our favorites (c. 45), but we've got plenty more to go. Absent the onus of writing these silly little intros, we'd already have posted lots more. We're in this for the music, though, so if you are, too, start clicking (song titles to hear songs, artist names to go to their SXSW page). For the full schedule of bands-cum-mp3s, click here.

The Everyday Visuals - Boom! Boom! Boom! mp3
Shiny Toy Guns - Ghost Town mp3

The Heavenly States - Lost in the Light mp3
Pretty & Nice - Tora Tora Tora mp3
