Best of SXSW 2007

Every year around March, the centre of the music world seems to be in Austin, Texas, where the south by southwest music conference is held. It's a week packed full of bands who could be 'the next big thing'. Finally, two months after the event, I've managed to compile somewhat of a 'best of' the conference, and while the general consensus was that this year's installment was a little mediocre, there were still some standouts.

I'll be trying to put up a new artist profile each day. Here goes...

Note: While there were many amazing bands playing there (such as The Polyphonic Spree), I'm only going to be mentioning bands who also supplied a sample track for download.
