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.

Taddy Porter — Stay Golden


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Stillwater rock outfit Taddy Porter must have been blissfully ignorant of the sophomore slump that’s taken down so many bands before it. Stay Golden not only matches the group’s 2010 self-titled debut, but exceeds it in about every possible way.

Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

No Justice — America’s Son


Country

Louis Fowler
When something really catches my ear, I tend to imagine it in the closing credits of a movie, and then I work backward, formulating a plot and actors. “Never Gonna Be Enough,” the opening track on Red Dirt rockers No Justice’s latest, America's Son, had me doing that within 10 seconds.
