Music Festival Season is not only a tremendously fun time of year, it’s also incredibly educational. If one is looking to study up on new and upcoming bands, that is. And Austin’s SXSW -- which is honestly much more than a music festival -- happens to consistently introduce some stellar unheard of artists and acts to much-deserved national attention, and my grateful ears.

Their song ‘Medusa’ is hypnotic, ethereal, wonderful…and had me singing along with the chorus by the second listen.
