The second SXSW 2006 Special.

The tracklisting has been ready for a couple of months now, so apologies for being late to market. I blame changing jobs and the World Cup (in soccer). As the previous show these tracks are taken from what I’ve rated top of my “Top 90” of the 941 free tracks from the SXSW 2006 Music Festival.

The show contains electronica from Ladytron, folktronica from Tungg and some female lead rock’n’roll joy from Comanechi and Juliette & the Licks. There’s some quirky stuff from Xiu Xiu (do they sample Billy Mackenzie?) and Jenny Owen Youngs makes sure this podcast is rated expletive. I play some soul-blues from Black Joe Lewis and Canadian talent Cadence Weapon makes a return to Acecast. Cadence seems to have lost his domain name, and can now be found at Cadence Weapon music.

I finish the set with a Norwegian double — new band Serena Maneesh (or is that Serena-Maneesh? Even the band themselves seems confused). While going through the tracks I thought Serena Maneesh were English; it’s only over the last couple of weeks I’ve woken up to the fact that they are from the old country. No such mistake with Thomas Dybdahl though. He was also part of Norwegian supergroup The National Bank (with members from Jaga Jazzist and Bigbang) and I finish this podcast with A Lovestory from Thomas. Enjoy.
