Clare and the Reasons
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 9:00pm - 9:40pm @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)
    Clare and the Reasons call Brooklyn home, but after touring around the world extensively for their first 2 albums, they needed a new setting, one that would make them see and hear differently. In 2011, for 8 months, they lived in an apartment on Berlin's Bergstrasse, on the western edges of what used to be the East. They bought a Schwalbe moped--model KR-51, and sped around the city at a velocity the congested New York streets would have prohibited. While riding under the vast skies of Berlin, the city, a blurred filmstrip of cobblestones, trees, and graffiti, they dreamed up the sounds of the new record. After months of writing under the influence of Berlin they packed up a van and drove to a town near the Dutch border called Rees-Haldern to record the album, Oct-Nov of 2011. They recorded for long hours, in between bicycling in and around cow fields under an unimaginable number of stars.

Todd Snider
    Thursday March 15, 2012 12:00am - 12:40am @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)

    Todd Snider: Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables bio
    Todd Snider is on the happy back end of happy hour at a favorite East Nashville bar,
    talking about his new album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. “This record doesnʼt
    come from good times,” Snider says. “I wanted to sound the way I feel, which
    sometimes means sounding like a broken soul.”
    On the 10 new songs, Snider doesnʼt talk around the vulnerable part, or the angry part,
    or the part about how everything weʼre taught about goodness and righteousness and
    capitalism, about God and family values winds up exploding into violence and chaos,
    wonder and longing. He might carry the mantle of “storyteller” – itʼs what he titled his live
    record, after all – but Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables is anything but a nice,
    folk/Americana troubadour album.
    Itʼs not a nice anything.
    It is jagged, leering, lurching and howling, and filled with unhappy endings both
    experienced and intimated: “It ainʼt the despair that gets you, itʼs the hope,” he sings in
    the album-closer, “Big Finish.” That Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables is also roaringly
    funny is tribute to Sniderʼs unique sensibilities, and to his standing as what Rolling
    Stone magazine calls “Americaʼs sharpest musical storyteller.” Anguish without laughter
    is boring, like intensive care without morphine, and Snider has never been within 100
    miles of boring. Also, he didnʼt earn the attention, friendship and fandom of American
    musical giants like Kris Kristofferson and John Prine by writing mopey protest songs.
    Anyway, these arenʼt protest songs and theyʼre not meant to incite class warfare
    (though he knows they might anyway). Theyʼre populated mostly by losers in the midst
    of losing, with a couple of spotlight appearances from the humbly anointed 1 percent. At
    albumʼs outset (“In The Beginning”), Snider credits the church with sustaining peace by
    noting that “We still need religion to keep the poor from killing the rich.” From there, itʼs
    on to the certainty of warped karma (“Good things happen to bad people,” he sings in
    “New York Banker.”), to a remarkable reworking of “West Nashville Grand Ballroom
    Gown” (possibly the albumʼs most acerbic song, and from the pen of Jimmy Buffett...
    no, really), and a slew of stories inspired by the world at large, writ small and barbed, in
    a manner both penetrating and empathetic. Thereʼs one happy love song, called
    “Brenda,” about Sniderʼs favorite couple, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.
    “I admire that relationship a lot,” Snider says. “What Mick and Keith have is real, and it
    canʼt be touched and it canʼt be beat. Iʼve never met them, but I believe in the Rolling
    Stones. Thatʼs who I think about at Christmas, anymore. They opened their hearts and
    gave us so much. And they tried to be true to each other.”
    Musically, Snider and co-producer Eric McConnell sought a sound that mirrored the
    times and that didnʼt replicate anything theyʼd done together on critically acclaimed
    works East Nashville Skyline, The Devil You Know or Peace Queer. With McConnell on
    bass and Snider playing guitar and harmonica, they gathered a core band of
    percussionist Paul Griffith, violinist/vocalist (and gifted songwriter) Amanda Shires, and
    keyboard player Chad Staehly, along with guest guitarist Jason Isbell and harmony
    vocalist Mick Utley, and offered up a sonic mission.
    “I told them I wanted to make a mess,” Snider says. “That was the goal.”
    And so a handful of accomplished musicians set about making a mess. And did so.
    Shiresʼ violin is the call-and-response heroine to Sniderʼs lyrics, filling the role Scarlett
    Rivera filled for Bob Dylan on Desire. Only messier. Meanwhile, Griffith makes like
    some off-kilter offspring of Keith Moon and Zigaboo Modeliste while Sniderʼs guitar
    plays lead switchblade.
    The result is something disconcerting, cracked and wholly original. Itʼs something that
    stands apart from the music of Sniderʼs heroes, and from Sniderʼs own, muchcelebrated
    past. Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables is Sniderʼs 12th album (14th, if we
    count a “best of” set and a collection of B-sides and demos), and it uses its
    predecessors not as a compass but as a trampoline. Snider found different song forms,
    different inspirations (from Alaska neʼer do well Digger Dave to Chicago Mayor, former
    White House Chief of Staff and friend..... no, really..... Rahm Emanuel) and different
    means of expression. He paints a world where begging turns to mugging, where
    investment turns to ruin, where babies grow into felons, where honesty is blunt trauma:
    “Wish I could show you how you hurt me in a way that wouldnʼt hurt you, too,” he sings.
    And thereʼs no way.

    Thursday March 15, 2012 1:00am - 1:50am @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)
    The Great Despiser, the new album from celebrated singer-songwriter Joe Pug, will be released April 24 on Lightning Rod Records. This is the follow-up to Pug’s critically acclaimed full-length debut, Messenger (2010), and his wildly popular word-of-mouth EP, Nation of Heat (2008). Of the music, NPR Music praises, “Not only does Chicago-based singer have a beautifully mature voice, but the lyrics on Pug’s debut EP, Nation of Heat, possess wisdom seemingly beyond his age. Pair that with his powerful songwriting and it's nearly impossible to avoid drawing comparisons between Pug and folk legends like Bob Dylan or contemporaries like Josh Ritter.”
    The 11-track album was recorded in Chicago with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Califone, etc). In addition to Pug, the album features various acclaimed musicians, including Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim) on piano, organ and marimba as well as backing vocals from The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn on the album’s title track.

    One of the first Christmas presents that Brad and Andrew Barr received were two pairs of red boxing gloves. They set up a makeshift ring in their basement in Providence, RI and hung a bell from the water pipes. When the bell rang, it was the signifier that all rules of decent brotherly conduct were suspended for 3 minutes. It was the one time they could unleash the latent fury of being bound to each other without the threat of mom and dad coming to break it up. Anything goes. No noses were broken, no ears bitten, but by the end of each match, the impact and recoil, there was always some blood left on the floor. Within a year or so, the gloves were nothing more than nylon rags covered in ripped plastic. Brad and Andrew, in search of a new outlet, discovered rock n' roll. It was 1983.

Patrick Watson
    Friday March 16, 2012 12:30am - 1:20am @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)

    Patrick Watson first broke through to audiences in 2006 with his album Close to Paradise. The album went gold in Canada and won numerous awards, including the Polaris Prize. It saw international release in September 2007 and has since sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. Watson also began to receive attention around the same time for his song “To Build a Home,” which he performs with Cinematic Orchestra on their 2007 album, Ma Fleur. Fittingly, the seeds of his own band were cinematic and collaborative in nature, having begun as a multi-media project entitled Waterproof9 with Quebec visual artist Brigitte Henry. His core four-piece band of Watson (vox, keys), Mishka Stein (bass), Simon Angell (guitar) and Robbie Kuster (drums) began to take shape in the wake of the self-released Just Another Ordinary Day in 2003, and before long buzz on their live show had lead to performances with an impressively diverse group of artists, from Phillip Glass and Steve Reich, to Feist. In the summer of 2006, they were invited on a European tour with the late James Brown, just before the release of Close to Paradise.

    The Staves are English sisters Emily, Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, whose unique vocal harmonies and haunting melodies have already seen them tipped for success by The Guardian, iTunes, Time Out, and The Independent to name a few.
    Known for their jaw-dropping live performances, The Staves recently supported The Civil Wars across the U.S. in Jan, will have toured with Michael Kiwanuka across the U.K. in Feb., and will return to the U.S. as part of Communion's Austin to Boston tour following SX.
    The latter part of 2012 will see the release of their much-anticipated debut LP, the first record on which father and son producers Glyn and Ethan Johns (whose combined credits include The Rolling Stones, Ryan Adams, The Eagles, Ray LaMontagne, Kings of Leon) have shared production duties.

    Saturday March 17, 2012 7:30pm - 7:55pm @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)

    Hello all, I’m Erin McLaughlin and I am thrilled to be returning to SXSW this year for round two of all the action, the glory and of course, the music. If you didn’t meet me last year, we need to catch you up. I am a singer/ songwriter from southern California. I spent the first part of my life learning the basics- how to climb trees, catch lizards, ride a snowboard in a half pipe, etc. Later I traveled around the world a bit and met some real nice folks who wrote sweet melodies that awakened a long sleeping desire in me to do the same. So I borrowed guitars and forced my friends to teach me anything they could. Neither of my parents are really what you’d call a musician. Though, my dad did play a mean trumpet in the high school marching band (which is way cooler than being a star quarter back with no soul, if you ask me). I say this to make the point that I’ve really had to learn independently how to hear music with new ears and learn it all from the bottom up, to be able to make music. Also, neither of my folks were into The Beatles or Bob Dylan or anything like that, which is where most youngsters get their initial exposure to real gritty songwriting. So, as I began to write music it was the people who played along side me (always embarrassed and dismayed at my short and shameful catalogue of music) who taught me about the rich history of music that I’ve come to feel so enlightened and humbled by. The stuff that’s really resonated with me in the last six years has been a lot of country or alt country, mostly from the past. I look up to artists like Graham Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Fleetwood Mac, Iris Dement, Joni Mitchell, Johnny Cash and so on…
    In May of 2007 something truly tragic occurred in my family. My younger brother lost his battle with depression and took his own life at 16. I only share this because it’s absolutely the paramount shift of my life’s story which simultaneously crushed me and all my world views and has with time, been a key motivator and a bottom line for a reckless pursuit of hope and life worth living. Music is a place we go to mourn, to revolt, to challenge, to ponder, to celebrate and so much else. Thus I threw myself into songwriting and the dream of playing music and the opportunity to tell a story (albeit a sad one at times), a true story that has and continues to change my life.
    In 2009 a few very talented friends graciously jumped on board to help me make my first EP. Tyler Chester (bass player for Fiction Family/ Brooke Fraser/ Nika Costa) stepped in as producer/ bass player and roped Sean Watkins in on guitar (Nickel Creek/ Fiction Family), Aaron Redfield on drums (Greyboy Allstars/ The Bird and the Bee/ Brooke Fraser/ Nika Costa) as well as the uber-talented brother duo, The Pawnshop Kings for harms. The project took three months in total to make. After it’s release in Jan 2010 at the buzz worthy Hotel Café in Hollywood, I began regularly appearing in listening rooms from San Diego to LA proper, sharing the stage with the likes of Peggy Young, Deana Carter, The Secret Sisters, Joe Purdy and more. Some nice folks from local publications started giving the EP and my live performances some attention and around this time last year I was invited to SXSW for the first time to showcase as the opening act for familiar names like, Meiko, Brian Wright and Brooke Fraser.
    I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Austin last year and have been looking forward to a return. I met all kinds of fun and talented friends, played for a super enthused crowd and broke ground in touring for the year to come. 2011 was full of music and life changes. I met some amazing players and put together a touring band that I am really proud to make music with. We kept busy playing all kinds of great shows up and down the southern coast. And best of all, I spent most of the year writing/ recording a new record with another all-star cast of players that should be set for release sometime early this summer! I can’t wait to get back to Austin for another kick-start to a great year and to hopefully meet YOU (and sell you some merch). See you all real soon! And as always, thanks for staying tuned!

The Milk Carton Kids
    Saturday March 17, 2012 9:00pm - 9:25pm @ St David's Historic Sanctuary (301 E 8th St Austin, TX 78701)

    The Milk Carton Kids, a harmonizing, minimalist duo, use two guitars and two voices to create a new combination of back-porch Americana and classic folk. Relying on compelling narrative, the seamless interplay between their 1950's acoustics, well-constructed harmony lines which play more like counterpoint melodies, and their natural stage chemistry, TMCK have drawn in and excited sold out crowds across North America since their formation in early 2011. The serendipitous meeting between the two (Kenneth Pattengale & Joey Ryan) led quickly to a shelving of the solo careers each had been pursuing. While neither had been compelled to such a collaboration with any of his peers before, an effortless musical complement, fast personal fondness, and like-minded view toward how to present the collaboration to their fans influenced the duo's formation and, almost immediately, began drawing praise from varied sources. While early press has indeed been kind to the duo, their spirit of independence compels them to release all of their music on their own label directly to their fans first, for free, forever.

She is currently in the studio crafting her new album with a host of producers including Isa Summers (Florence and the Machine) and PJ Bianco (Cee-Lo) among others. In today’s crowded musical landscape, LP stands out as a real artist with meaningful music. She can only truly be described through the sound of her music.
