Sounds of SXSW 2015 #16: Buxton

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

Listen to Buxton, and you might just find it next to impossible not to love them. What I've heard comes across as down home rustic with gleeful flourish, and it's oh so wonderful. A little bit saloon, a little bit beach, a little bit desert. I'd hazard a guess they're even better live, so check out this Houston outfit and let me know if I'm right.
