Spotlight, SXSW 2010: Frightened Rabbit; MP3s for We Were Promised Jetpacks, Fangs

It's that time of year again: SXSW! However, rather than partying in Austin, Texas, I am stuck at home studying for a nursing test. So it goes. If you attend the festival, let me know how it goes!

But in any case, I'll be doing a few spotlights on some SXSW acts. First up is some great bands from Scotland - Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and Fangs.

Frightened Rabbit is an indie rock band with a great sound and epic, emotional songs. I only got into the band quite recently but they've been a big name in indie music for some time. I particularly like "Swim Until You Can't See Land," and I think it sums up their sound well.

We Were Promised Jetpacks is another band who sound like they'd be phenomenal live; they have a huge sound, and I've been a fan ever since I heard "Quiet Little Voices." Fangs is an electro/new wave band with a snazzy sound and a big fan following.
