Sounds Of SXSW #8: Alexander and The Grapes

SXSW is upon us once again, my friends, and sadly, for mostly work-related reasons, I won't be there (alas, alack, etc etc). However, there are plenty of good bands that will be in Austin, and I'm going to post little somethin-somethins for y'all to enjoy, whether you're headed down to Texas or not.

For some reason, I've had Florida on the brain lately. It could be because a good friend was just lapping up some sun in the Keys, but it could also have been my subconscious getting ready for the falling in smit with Alexander & The Grapes that I just experienced. With its' big riffs and 90s college rock indie boy vocals, "East Coast" almost certainly would have been perfect for an episode of My So-Called Life, had the two met at the right time. That alas wasn't meant to be, but I'll still love the song for what it is, and what might have been.
