We posted our SXSW Recap of White Lies a few days ago, but we'd like to show you another video we recorded from their show. Here's "Fairwell To The Fairground".
We've been wanting see Bell since last March when we first wrote about her. She grabbed our attention because she performed a cover of Björk's "It's Oh So Quiet" for Stereogum's Björk tribute album, Enjoyed: A Tribute To Björk's Post.
It was a little trek to Scholz's Garten, but definitely well worth it for her incredible voice and the great brisket at the I Guess I'm Floating Day Party. Check out a video we recorded of one of her new songs entitled, "Suerte Loca".
Having written about The Pains of Being Pure at Heart right before SXSW, we knew they were playing ten shows and would probably get to see them (eventually), but we managed to sneak them in on the first day. They took the outside stage at Red 7 before Beach House was set to perform inside and sounded great! Also be sure to check out the AMAZING pictures You Ain't No Picasso has too. Check out the video we recorded of "Come Saturday".
With all that was going on, I didn't think we were going to get an opportunity to see Beach House during SXSW, but everything worked out perfectly. They took a little longer to set up and in the process we missed Vivian Girls on the outside stage, but it was well worth it in the end. You couldn't have torn me away from Victoria and Alex's set inside Red 7. They absolutely blew me away! We took a video of one of their new songs so you can see what we mean.
