Friday
free mp3: Rogues – Not So Pretty (Feed Me Remix)

Rogues are another talented unsigned UK band – although I can’t seem to find out exactly where they’re from at the moment! Two guitars, bass, drums and big vocals. There are two brothers In their number too – Pearse (guitar/vox) & Thomas (drums) MacIntyre. This version is a near perfect remix from London DJ Feed Me. Can’t stop playing the sucker!

buy: Not So Pretty 7″

Saturday
free mp3: A Classic Education – Stay Son

This really gets into your head and stays there. This band are from Bologna although you couldn’t tell from the American vocal style. It’s infectious orchestral indie pop. They impressed me as support to Crystal Stilts at The Windmill recently.

For Fans Of: Decemberists, Shins, Band of Horses, Ra Ra Riot.

buy: Stay Son 12″ EP

Sunday
free mp3: Caleb Engstrom – Hoof

This is a really special track from young Caleb Engstrom of Iowa who promises to be one of the highlights of SXSW for me. Beautiful alt country/folk with thoughtful lyrics and a wonderful voice. Currently unsigned and unreleased over here but hopefully not for too much longer.

For Fans Of: Jose Gonzalez, Bon Iver, Elliot Smith.

What? Rogues

Hats off to Levis’ Ones To Watch series for picking the excellent Rogues for this showcase tomorrow night. These guys sound like they’re destined for the big time. Hugely catchy guitar riffs, a dancey drum sound and big vocal hooks. Doesn’t sound original when you break it down but believe me it sounds fresh. Be warned they do look like they’re trying to be a bit too cool for school though.

There’s also all this on the night: Very special live guests TBA, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly (DJ Set), Tapedeck, Fallout, James Theaker (NME Radio), Yes Sir Idol, All Good Granny, Toppy, ATL, Levi’s Ones To Watch

For Fans Of: The Temper Trap, Klaxons, Radio 4, Friendly Fires.

When? Thursday, March 12th.

Where? The Macbeth, Hoxton.

How Much? £5
