• SXSW 2009 MP3 Listening Party 2

    I’ve listened to another couple hundred tracks, and managed to pull another 15 loosely themed tracks for your listening pleasure. I started with The Pack A.D. and picked 14 artists that I hadn’t heard of to go with the one I had.

    The band by the name of Nancy here is not the punk band from New York, but a six-piece from Brazil. In addition to them, we have artists from Cincinnati OH, Memphis TN, Austin and Houston TX, Danielsville GA, Vancouver BC, Stillwater OK, Jersey City NJ, Orange County and Venice CA, London UK, Winnipeg MB, and Aarhus Denmark.

    This time, I’m including the last.fm track play count that was featured on each artist’s page to the right of the link to their page on last.fm. The band with 6 plays is a cover band, so they likely haven’t released anything that people would play at home. Yes, they are an ABBA cover band, and StABBA doesn’t have much in the way of information on the SXSW website; just the single line

    “Five borderline autistic guys with a glitter obsession making ABBA a lot heavier. The way baby Jesus would want it.”

    Their MySpace page bills them as “the greatest rock/metal ABBA cover band ever!!!” I don’t imagine that there’s much competition in that field, however. in “Knowing Me…” I’m reminded of Hurra Torpedo’s cover of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” – crazy but brilliant.
