SXSW 2013: Tallows

When experimental rock’s Tallows takes the stage, don’t fret.


Music

Stephen Carradini
Fret-tapping is an alternate way of playing guitar that creates very percussive rhythms out of melodic sounds. Instead of strumming each note, the guitar player taps a finger from the fretting hand against each note on the fretboard. The mesmerizing rapid hand movements are a neat side benefit.

SXSW 2013: Horse Thief / Colourmusic

Horse Thief takes the reins, while Colourmusic paints music to be felt.


Music

Stephen Carradini
Horse Thief’s act of draping an Oklahoma flag over one of its amp stands may have just been a proud statement of local love, but it is also a reflection of its wide-open, rootsy, rock ’n’ roll sound. The band describes itself as a “psychedelic folk rock band,” and that description isn’t bad, either.

SXSW 2013: Guardant / The Del Toros / The Kamals / Josh Sallee

Just Joshin'. And you?


Music

Stephen Carradini
It only took Guardant 30 seconds to win me completely over to its team. The quintet’s hyperactive, quirky dance pop is simply irresistible.
