Featured track: "The Adventures of Jubilant John in Giggle City," featured on CultureMap's Texas Music Sampler
Country/City of origin: Austin, Texas
In one sentence: "Charming bluesy-folk music that allows its musicians to demonstrate just how skilled they are at their individual crafts." - CultureMap
Why we chose them: These darlings of the Austin music scene have become a CultureMap favorite for the go-to live rock show. The band's tight sound is driven by rock sensibilities that capture the catchiness of a solid folk hook. "The Adventures of Jubilant John in Giggle City" is a mouthful of a title, catchy in its own right — just like the song itself. The tune is an easy listen, driven by throwback surf rock and Pinkerton-era fun.
SXSW official showcase: Wednesday, March 13 at Hilton Garden Inn
