SXSW Preview (Swedish Style) – Marching Band

I hope there are some marching bands at SXSW. Here in Chicago we have a couple of great bands including Mucca Pazza and Black Bear Ensemble. These guys have the name but not the corresponding sound. Instead Marching Band make a type of lush quiet pop. Makes for a nice listen but not sure if it translates live.

You can see for yourself when they play St. David’s Church on Saturday. More info here.

Make No Plans

P.S. For some reason I don’t seem to mention Swedish music enough. It’s not that I don’t write a ton about Swedish music, it’s just that I don’t actually write the words “Swedish music” enough. I did a Google search and Swedeplease doesn’t turn up on any of the first three pages of results. So to improve my Google ranking for the phrase “Swedish music” I intend to write about even more Swedish music in the months to come. There, that should do it!

P.P.S. I won’t be updating this site til Monday but you can follow me on Twitter here during SXSW.

  • I caught them in Austin on Saturday night, and since I missed their day time party shows, the Saturday night show was a must see for me. They were incredible live!

    I can't wait to see them again.

  • They are actually even better at playing live. Saw them without ever heard of them before. And the music really got to me! Live the music gets an nice edge to it.

    See them!

    Thanks for a really nice blogg. Been reading this one for years!
